Jim Iyke opened up about his relationship with Rita Dominic, how his life was beyond control while they were together and why they had to call it quits.
During an Interview with Broadway TV, the actor explained how they met when he was still adjusting to fame.
‘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.’
Jim further said he doesn’t think she wanted a long term relationship at the time and he wasn’t also ready for that.
‘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 depth or hold water. There is that deep rooted thing of a man or woman you shared something with.’
He then went on to say Rita tried to help him become a better man but his life was beyond control and now he doesn’t think they can get back because they have outgrown each other.
‘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 someone I want to get involved with because so much layers of growth and evolvement have gone on in her life and so in mine .So place the same place and situation now, it may have worked.’
