Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has cleared the rumours making the rounds that he has a hand in the crash of Ini Edo's six year old marriage.
The youngest child of veteran actor Pete Edochie, denied the speculations when Nigeriafilms.com had a brief chat with him recently.
According to Yul who just joined Mnet's TV series, Tinsel, he is just a close friend and colleague to the said actress.
"Ini Edo is my very good colleague and close friend. We often meet at movie locations. And when she's not shooting yet, we relax together inside my car. The gossip that we had 'something' started from the actors circle before it got to the ears of the media. Shortly after we became close, she got married to her ex-husband. Its a pity that her marriage crashed, but I'm still very married," he said.
The 33-year old father of three who got married 11 years ago, also added that the bond he shared with Ini Edo became stronger when she told him that he (Yul) shares same birthday with her husband (now ex), Philips Ehiagwina.
"We actually became closer when Ini told me one day while we were on set that, that day was her husband's birthday, co-incidentally, that was my birthday too.
So, she calls me on my birthdays to send her warm greetings. Please oh, I don't have any hand in her marriage crash. She is just my friend and colleague", he emphasised.
It would be recalled that in September, 2014, the shocking news of her marriage crash went viral and the actress cum producer confirmed it.
Ini Edo has since then moved on with her life and as well keeps dragging lots of controversies along with her.
