Actor, Yul Edochie, has tendered a public apology to his first wife, May, over his decision to marry another wife and fellow actress, Judy Austin.
The actor unveiled Judy as his second wife in April 2022, when he revealed that they both had a son together.
Eight months later, Yul decided to publicly apologise to his wife for his actions, as he stated that he meant no disrespect to her.
He said he had apologised to his first wife, with whom he has four children, countless times before now.
In his apology post, Edochie said, “To my dear wife, Queen May Yul-Edochie. I acknowledge that I hurt you deeply and I’ve apologised to you countless times.
“I take the blame for my actions. I agree with you that polygamy shouldn’t be forced on anyone. You never bargained for it from the beginning neither did I. But I guess life happens. You already know the whole story.
“I didn’t do it to disrespect you. I didn’t do it to replace you, nor because I do not love you anymore, no. I have always loved you and always will.
“I’ve been a good husband and a wonderful father. I’ve supported all your hustle from day one. I have been an exceptional father to our children to date, making sure they lack nothing and always there for everyone.
“Out of 100, I have done 99 things right. Hating me because of one thing isn’t the best. Nobody is perfect. I’m not. You’re not. Nobody is, except God.
“I assure you that nobody is trying to take your place. I have apologised to you countless times sincerely from my heart.
“I’m sorry. I’ve always loved you and always will. Butuo nwanyi oma. We can live peacefully and happily.”
Shortly after he announced his second marriage, May openly stated that her belief and faith did not permit polygamy.
Prior to his public apology, Yul had at several times boasted about his polygamous marriage, adding that the decision had brought him blessings.
