Just after the 4th Episode of Date Rush finished airing on TV3, a rumour popped up that one of the contestants, Joan, is allegedly a drug addict and mentally ill and that she was deported from the United States by her parents over her behaviour.

Another claim levelled against Joan was that she was sacked from the National Identification Authority (NIA) where she works because of her mental instability.

The allegations as leaked by a close source to TheGossipScoop.com (TGS) caused a whole lot of discussions on social media.

Well, a cousin of Joan identified as Vivian have contacted the above-mentioned news portal that all allegations levelled against her relative are false.

TGS reported that according to Vivian, Joan is very stable mentally and has never been a drug addict as the source alleged.

On whether or not Joan was once suspended at the National Identification Authority (NIA) for portraying extreme meanness towards some applicants──casting doubts on her mental wellbeing, Vivian angrily answered that she is mentally stable and has never been suspended by the NIA.

TGS’s phone call conversation with Vivian ended on a bad note──as she screamed on them after the question of whether Joan was kicked out of the United States by her parents or not was thrown at her.

From the cousin of Joan, Vivian, she is sound and well and that allegations of drug addiction and mental illness should be quashed!

But in a comment monitored on social media, one commenter on Facebook, Samuel Nii Daily claimed that Joan registered him on the Ghana Card Registration at Nungua and “she was very hard on some of the applicant…”


As it stands, it could be true that Joan may not be mentally unstable as people think. However, her meanness to people could be a reason why people think she has some screws loosed upstairs in her head.

Whatever may be the case, we’ll bring you more developing stories on this.
