– The actor blamed his ‘wild ways’ for driving Rita away
– He also revealed he hasn’t spoken to her in two years
Who knew Jim Iyke and Rita Dominic once dated each other?
Speaking in a recent interview, Jim revealed that not only did he date Rita; their relationship did not work out because of his wild ways.
The popular actor also said even though he and Rita remain friends, they haven’t spoken to each other in two years.
“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 depth or hold water,” he told Broadway TV.

Going further said their relationship crashed due to his bad boy antics back then.
“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.”
