At long last, Jim Iyke has come to terms with the fact that, he has a serious anger problem and as such needs help. Is it refreshing to hear that, he has realized he has anger problems and he is doing something about it by taking anger management classes…
Below is what he had to say about this….
I will not disrespect you by lying about the fact that I do get into one or two brushes with people here and there. I will not give any excuse that I have never been that kind of person. I am taking an Anger Management Session now; it was advised not only by my fiancée, but also by my agent.
It is a very interesting session for my well-being. One thing about our society is that we have not accepted celebrities with their whims and caprices. An actor is allowed to be eccentric. There is a thin line between the person you see on stage and the real actor. A lot of people do not understand that. I’m not perfect and I’m taking steps to deal with my imperfections” – Jim Iyke
