Speaking during an interview with TVC on Wednesday, Dominic said she was about to get married but it ended up not working out between her and her supposed spouse.
She also said that she was happy the marriage did not work out.

We were there. We were at that point. It didn’t work out and I’m happy it didn’t work out because I saw the signs,” she said.
