Shedding light on his past, Yul said Pete invited him into his room, locked the door and pulled out his belt.
He posted: “In JS2, I told my father I didn’t want to go to school anymore, he should open electrical shop for me. He said ok. He invited me to his room, locked the door & pulled out his belt. He gave me a beating that reset my brain to factory setting. Look at me today. Thank you Dad!”.
