Nollywood actor Yul Edochie’s family is in chaos after he went in for a second wife.
The first wife of the actor,May is alleged to have began divorce proceedings against her estranged husband, Yul.
May and her counsel reportedly visited a court on Monday July 10, to submit a petition for the dissolution of her 18-year-old marriage to the actor.
According to insiders, Yul has refused to be served the originating summons. The couple have been at loggerheads over his decision to take actress, Judy Austin, as a second wife and also welcome a son with her.
In April 2022, Yul announced he has welcomed a son with Judy and that she is now his second wife. May has never hidden her disapproval of his union with Judy.
In September 2022, May released a statement expressing her disapproval. She stated that she had a stable and loving home prior to the unprecedented events regarding her marriage. She mentioned that polygamy is a life choice and that no one should be compelled to accept it. She stressed that some religions and traditions allow polygamy and that she has nothing against it but that as a person she will not be numbered or cajoled to accept a practice that does not align with her faith and family values.
In recent times, Yul has been widely criticized on social media for what many have described as ‘moving on so fast’ after the death of his first son, Kambilichukwu, died suddenly in March.
Meanwhile, mother of actor Yul has taken to social media to pray for her daughter in-law,May.
She wrote;“GOD, PLEASE PROTECT THIS HOME FOR ME.“THEY WERE SIX IN THIS PEACEFUL HOME, FATHER, MOTHER AND FOUR LOVELY CHILDREN ENJOYING THEIR PEACEFULLY.“TODAY, THEY ARE NOW FOUR IN THE SAME HOME. GOD, PLEASE SURROUND AND PROTECT THE HOME, BOTH THEIR GOING OUT AND COMING BACK.k“GOD ALMIGHTY, YOU KNOW THE BEST, AND YOUR BEST IS ALWAYS THE BEST. @mayyuledochie”
