Rotimi Opens Up About Moving In With A Girlfriend For The First Time

Celebrity News

Everybody remembers their first real love, but we recall our first real heartbreak even more vividly. Love can be a dangerous game where you can easily be cheated, but this R&B artist, and star of the STARZ series Power, recently took a chance and rolled the dice.

Promoting a new album, Rotimi recently went on The Breakfast Club and opened up about his newfound singledom after a relationship that he said was a "growing space" for him. Last July, on an episode of Kandi Koated Nights, he revealed that he was seeing someone special, and according to him, things got pretty serious. The 30-year-old actor shared that in the past, he had been hesitant about giving cohabitation a shot, but his ex made him reconsider that notion:

"My whole life, I spent most of my relationships doing relationships long distance. This was the first time someone had actually lived with me for a little bit. I loved it. It was the first time I was able to be like, 'You can stay as long as you want, you don't have to leave in two days.' It was a great feeling. I didn't expect to like it, but it felt cool just to have somebody there."

They say you don't know somebody until you move in with them, and this was especially true for Rotimi and his unnamed (but named because Google is lit) ex-girlfriend. During their time living together, he explained that they developed a genuine connection that ultimately helped him grow as a person.

"It was a new experience. I never experienced it before. So, having someone just to literally help me focus. 'Cause everything was, on the road, this and this, you're having fun, city to city, and you're wildin' out. But when you have a center, when you have somebody to just, help you focus, that's a big deal."
"When you have a center, when you have somebody to just, help you focus, that's a big deal."

Rather than grow together, the couple learned that they were growing apart. Due to personal commitments on both ends, they decided to call it quits and after recovering from a few months of being lovesick, Rotimi is now a single man. He also gave The Breakfast Club hosts the details on what he's looking for in his next serious relationship.

Although there is a stereotype that African men subscribe to patriarchial roles in relationships, the Nigerian-American entertainer has a much different outlook.

"It's not necessarily roles, it's just having a woman to fill in gaps of what I lack. You be strong in the things I'm not good at, and I'll be strong in the things you're not good at. If you see I'm on set, and then I'm in the studio, and I'm tired at home. I'd hope that you cook for me, but it's not necessarily a requirement. But it's like oh, I see he's working hard, I'm going to take care of him. It's all about a partnership."

You heard it, ladies! Rotimi's DMs are open, and according to him, if you can cook a mean curry chicken, it might be the right time to shoot your shot, sis. You can watch the full interview below!

I think it's fair to say that most of us long to reach that place where the money resides, especially in the present times when life is so uncertain and people are likely to lose their jobs at any given moment. On the other hand, perhaps thanks to the plethora of entrepreneurs that document their journeys on social media, there's the sense that abundant financial wealth seems more accessible now than it ever has before. With that said, despite all the step-by-step guides to becoming rich available on the market, we can still hear the same question echoing in our heads: How do I get to the bag, though?
