May, the first wife of actor, Yul Edochie, has allegedly began divorce proceedings against her estranged husband, Yul.
May and her counsel reportedly visited a court today 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 has been at loggerheads over his decision to take actress, Judy Austin, as a second wife. In April 2022, Yul announced he had welcomed a son with Judy and had married her.
May who has never hidden her disapproval of his union with Judy, stated that she had a stable and loving home prior to the unprecedented events regarding her marriage. She added 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 demise of his first son with May, Kambilichukwu, who died suddenly in March. Some Nigerians have argued that the videos of him and Judy spending time together, which he shares online frequently, suggests he has moved on. They opined that he has not mourned his son enough for him to be posting such ‘happy videos’ of himself and Judy.
