Karrine Steffans is still getting around and blowing the whistle about it. Most recently, she revealed that she was pregnant with Olurotimi Akinosha’s child (she found out in May, but didn’t tell him until July). Olurotimi is best known as Rotimi in the entertainment world as a singer, and as as Dre from the Starz’s hit show Power.
Bossip actually caught up with someone who is close to Steffans to get more scoop about their relationship.
On How They Got Together
Rotimi & Karrine met in 2012, back when she was married to her second husband. He was actually her side-piece until she got divorced and they continued the relationship after that.
It progressed pretty quickly. As soon as they saw each other they just kind of got together. There wasn’t a friendship period. Initially they were just together. He was a side-piece so it was just very passionate and sexual. He was only 22 at the time and she was 33 or 34 . It was initially physical and then they took a break and just remained friends for awhile until she divorced her husband and then she went back to him.
On The Pregnancy
The pregnancy wasn’t unplanned. It was just a situation where they were together, they trusted each other, so whatever happened happened. There wasn’t a “Don’t get pregnant” conversation. There was no birth control. There was nothing. They just had a mutually consenting relationship where whatever happened happened and they would deal with it as it came.
On Airing Rotimi Out
All of July-September, they had been dealing with this. He knew she was at the end of her rope and he shut down. He would discuss everything else but not the baby. It was hurtful to her because she couldn’t discuss it. It’s a very personal matter. You want to talk to the person that you are going through it with. He wasn’t available to her for that conversation. They could talk about anything else in the world but he would not discuss it. It was I think really painful for her.
He was trying to build an image to be perfect publicly. He was very concerned in general of what people knew about him personally because his career is so new. She discussed that because that was his fear, it would be the button that she would push if he kept pushing her. He knew 15 minutes ahead of time.
According to this Chatty Patty friend, Steffans and Rotimi dealt with a lot of drama in their relationship, and Steffans is allegedly done with him for good.
Um…so…why the need to air this out publicly?
She likes to get off on this whole female empowerment shtick, claiming that she hopes her life serves as a cautionary tale for young women, which gets old fast, especially since she keeps doing the same thing now that she got famous for back in her 20s–airing out her celebrity conquests.
Sorry, but, I don’t feel bad for her.
Also, why are these dudes still having unprotected sex with her?
