And Rita Dominic is not the kind of woman that hangs around a lot. We were very deep with each other. We still are great-friends though we don’t speak constantly. As a matter of fact, it may surprise you that we haven’t spoken to each other in over two years,” Jim Iyke revealed in an interview with BroadwayTV.
He continued on their relationship: “But when we meet, we are cordial, and respectful. There is that deep-rooted thing of a man or woman you shared something with. I don’t think Rita Dominic at that time was looking at longevity, truthfully. Don’t forget, I was the kid with the crazy afro, ready to start a fight anywhere. My life was about having a good time and as many conquests as possible. So, who wants that kind of guy?”
