Singer was asked not to look at the rapper
The singer claims she was ordered not to make eye contact with the rapper, real name Robert Van Winkle, when they hit the road together in 1991.
‘I was instructed not to look him in the eye and that was my first experience of honouring someone’s privacy to the point where you look away when they come near you,’ she told Virgin Radio.
‘I thought, “Wow, I didn’t think that actually existed!”’
