If you didn’t know that popular Nollywood actors Rita Dominic and Jim Iyke were in a relationship a while back then you are not alone. The two even though working together on several romantic movies at the beginning of their careers managed to keep their relationship a secret from the media and some of their friends.
Now for the first time Jim Iyk is opening up about Rita in an interview with Broadway TV where he said that it was more or less his fault the relationship crashed as Rita did not want to be with a layabout frolicked with the partying and drama that comes with a young successful entertainment career.
”Rita and I met when I was just beginning to embrace fame, the comforts that came with it, the laurels and the distraction,even the destruction. And Rita is not the kind of woman that hangs around a groth. We were very deep with each other.We still are great friends.As a matter of fact, it may surprise you that we haven’t spoken to each other in over two years. But when we meet, we are cordial, respectful.
There is that deep rooted thing of a man or woman you shared something with .I don’t think Rita at that time was looking at longevity, truthfully .Don’t forget,I was the kid with the crazy afro, ready to start a fight.
My life was around having a good time and as many conquests as possible .So,who wants that kind of guy?So this question is futuristic in a sense .Fast forward perhaps 10 years from now,that question may have had dept or hold water.
But then,what was there to hold on to?I mean, seriously?I was partying like a crazy person.She tried to show me another life and say listen ‘there is so much more to you “I promise you that Rita will not hang around with a lay about .I was uncontrollable. I think we have outgrown each other now .I would not see Rita as son one I want to get involved with because so much layers of growth and evolvement have gone on in her life and so is mine .So place the same place and situation now,it may have worked”
