Nollywood actor Jim Iyke, known for his romantic roles in movies, has opened up on his past relationship with Actress Rita Dominic.
Jim Iyke in an interview revealed that his relationship with Rita didn’t go beyond the initial attraction stage because she wanted something more serious, while he was yet unsettled as to what he wanted.
According to Jim Iyke, his life centered around having a good time.
He said; “Rita and I met when I was just beginning to embrace fame and the comforts that came with it. The laurels and the distraction, even the destruction.
“Rita is not the kind of woman that hangs around a guy. We were very deep with each other. We still are great friends. As a matter of fact, it may surprise you to know that we haven’t spoken to each other in over two years.
“But when we meet, we are cordial and respectful to each other.”
He added “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 depth 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 someone I want to get involved with because so much layers of growth and evolvement have gone on in her life and mine. So same place and the situation now, it may have worked.”
