Concerning this, she explained that the industry elder wasn't initially aware that the movie he was being featured in belonged to his son's new wife. And when Pete learned that the project was Judy's, he opted out.

By then, he had already done the first part of the movie, so he refused to join in on the second part, which he had earlier been paid for and refunded the money.

Rita also went on to ask the public to respect the privacy of Pete Edochie's wife, Mrs Josephine. She confirmed that Yul's mum has been actively involved in Yul's marriage drama and noted that everyone in their family must not be as publicly outspoken as she is.
