“Sexual harassment is everywhere, not just in Nollywood and I won’t lie to you that I’ve never experienced it, because I have. There are people who would want to deprive you of the role given to you because you didn’t sleep with them. Some will even sleep with you and still not give you the role. So, it is left for you to know yourself and know your job. If you can act well, your blessing will locate you. If you want to sleep around, it is your choice but it cannot guarantee your getting roles often. So many girls who have succumbed to such harassment have come to regret it”.

“I don’t believe in sleeping around to make money but a lot of people misunderstand me because of my physique. My work pays me very well. Some people who are not even close to me want to do me favours, so what is the essence of sleeping around. If God gives me a man that is moderately rich and I love him, I would go ahead with the marriage. I am in a relationship and I am comfortable with my man”. She added.

Destiny Etiko relationship with Jack-Rich
Shortly after acting My Private Part, there were rumours of her being married due to the role she played in the movie. But it was just a rumour.
The actress is said to be in a romantic relationship with Zubby Michael. This rumour came as a result of their closeness. The actor was seen lavishing money on her during her father’s burial and in several occasions, they have both been spotted sharing passionate kisses outside a movie scene.
Her recent controversy came after she bought her Land Cruiser, the actress was dragged by an Instagram blogger who accused her of sleeping around to get the car. According to the blogger, she got her latest ride from a popular businessman in Nigeria, Tein Jack- Rich who is the President of Belema Oil Producing Limited.
The allegation made her receive several backlashes but she immediately came out to debunk the rumour.
“A lot has been going on. A lot has been flying on the internet ever since I posted my vehicle. I haven’t rested and I do not know why. I had wanted to keep quiet because a clear conscience fears no accusation but things kept coming up as if I have done something wrong. So I am here to clear the air. I don’t know this man you people speak of. I have never met him in my entire life”.
“I swear with my life. I swear with everything I hold sacred. In fact, apart from my life, another person I hold so dear to my heart is my mother. I swear with my mother’s life. If I have ever met this man or him giving me any money or him sponsoring my projects or him even buying me a car, let it not ever be well with me and my generation but if not, these people cooking this whole thing up, the blogs sponsoring it, it shall never be well with you all and your entire generation”, she added.
Tein Jack-Rich and his wife, Elizabeth Jack-Rich who is the CEO of Elin Group, also debunked the rumour through their social media handles.
In spite of the post made to debunk the rumours, popular Instagram blogger, Cutie Julls still insisted that the businessman got the car for Destiny as he revealed the amount she gets paid per movie.
Cutie Julls revealed that Destiny Etiko is usually paid N500,000 per movie and that is only when she is the lead actress, that is to say, she receives less than that when she isn’t the lead actress in a movie.
