He confirmed that all they did was smooch and cuddle and dry hump without actually going further.
He made this known in a chat with Potpourri as he revealed that the reason he didn’t have sleep with her was because she had not initiated it and he wasn’t used to making the first move.
“I’m not used to making the first move when it comes to getting down with a woman. You know, I’m a fine boy and I’m used to women pushing me to do things but Mercy isn’t that kind of person and we were not even ready to do that kind of stuff in the Big Brother House. I would probably have had sex with her if she had made the move but she didn’t and I didn’t too,”
He also spoke about her seemingly seducing him and trying to get a reaction out of him.
“Don’t mind her, she was always teasing me. It was just a trap. We had fun but that type of fun when it gets too hot leads to something else, if you understand what I’m saying,” he said.
He also affirmed his love for her was true.
“Yes it was real. The love is real. We are just taking things slow for now. We are still together, we are trying to see what’s going to happen because this new lifestyle is new to me and also new to her. Because of the money she won, we have to be very careful with each other,” he said.
On the question of the money Mercy won (N30 million in cash, N25 million Innoson SUV and 5 million add-ons) Ike says he doesn’t feel threatened at all.
“Who says she’s richer than me. Well, I know she is richer than me but I don’t think it will affect our relationship because I knew how to handle her in the House, so I think I will be able to handle her outside the house,” he added.
