The controversial couple met in front of their apartment complex while Jorja was waiting for a taxi to get to her job at McDonald’s.
Graham offered to help Jorja get to and from work if she put money into his account for fuel every week, which she said she was ‘happy to do’, and the pair struck up a friendship.
‘He didn’t try to get into my pants like every other man has tried and he treated me with so much respect from the start. There was definitely chemistry, she said.
After four months of being friends, Jorja confessed how she felt about Graham.
He was initially reluctant to take the relationship further due to their age difference, asking Jorja if she was sure she ‘wanted to go down this road with him’, but she was adamant that she was deeply in love.
