Yul Edochie’s first wife, May, has reportedly initiated divorce proceedings against him.
According to reports, May’s counsel visited the court on July 10 to file a petition seeking the dissolution of their 18-year marriage, but Yul has allegedly avoided being served the summons.
May, who recently mourned the loss of her son, Kambili, took this step following ongoing disagreements with Yul over his decision to take Judy Austin as his second wife and have a child with her.
In April 2022, Yul publicly announced Judy as his second wife and the mother of his child.
May, who had expressed her disapproval of Yul’s union with Judy, released a statement in September 2022 stating that while some religions and traditions permit polygamy, she personally chooses not to accept it.
Yul has faced criticism on social media for what some perceive as him moving on too quickly after the death of his first son. Nigerians argue that his frequent posts of himself and Judy having a great time together indicate a lack of proper mourning for his late son.
These criticisms suggest that Yul’s public displays of happiness with Judy seem inappropriate given the recent loss of his child.
