She said:

“If Yul Edochie was rich, like very very rich, he would have been able to manage both May and Judy quietly, nobody needs to disturb anybody.”

Not stopping there, Phyna went on to speak about Nollywood actress Regina Daniels' marriage with billionaire politician Ned Nwoko while comparing it to Yul's situation.
