Nollywood legend, Pete Edochie has reacted to news of his son, Yul Edochie’s second marriage to actress, Judy Austin.
Per online reports, Pete who spoke on Wednesday outrightly banished his son’s second wife Judy Austin from entering his household.
While reacting to the saga, Pete reportedly said, “I want the whole world and Nigerians to understand that as an Igbo man, I never support my son actions and as a statesman, I only Recognized his first wife as the only authenticated wife of my son, the rest is banished from entering my household.”
The septuagenarian known for his controversial statements on culture preservation insisted marrying two wives does not confer a manly status on anyone.
Pete, who publicly endorsed his son, Yul, for his presidential aspirations in Nigeria’s 2023 General elections, said that getting with another wife simply means that one is ready to suffer and breed confusion among his generation.
The veteran actor bore his mind on the second wife and son that Yul had outside his knowledge, after having four children from the first wife.
According to him, “right from when Yul was still a child, he never listened to him.
“I’m not shocked that he has a son without my knowledge. A child that doesn’t listen to his father end up cutting his or her life span short.”
A check on Judy Austin’s instagram shows that the actress has enjoyed a cordial relationship with the thespian as she’s shared photos of herself and the actor.
