The famous Nollywood star and Yoruba Actress Mercy Aigbe has debunked the rumour that is spreading around the town over her marital challenge that she has resolved the matter outside court and settle with her husband.
Mercy Aigbe, who has since moved out of her husband residence in Omole, Ikeja Lagos, and has been staying oversea for proper medical care after the fall-out between her and her husband, Lanre Gentry, condemned any act of domestic violence especially the one which involved husband and wife beating each other. She made this known through her instagram handle where she share the video of her battered face and call for advocacy against domestic violence. “Violence is not an option” she said.
This is the first time it is been reported that the couple have settled their differences after their fall-out about four month ago.
The popular female artist, who is currently 38 years old and a mother of two denied the story being circulated by some online media platform that she has forgiven her husband saying only court will decide on that matter as the case is still in court.
“The news spreading around that we have resolved our issue outside court is a blatant lie. We are still in court”, she explained.
It will be recalled that the news filtered the air four months ago about the popular thespian fall-out with her husband over the trust issue, allegation of extral-marital affairs and lack of respect for the in-laws. It was reported that the husband, Lanre Gentry, a 55 years old Lagos hotelier had beaten the star Yoruba actress into stupour causing her to sustain several injuries and caused her internal bleeding.
Mercy Aigbe who approached Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation to solicit the intervention of the Ministry in the domestic violence she was suffering in her marriage revealed several secrets which she had kept all through her seven years of marriage to Lanre Gentry.
In another development, the estranged husband of the actress, Lanre Gentry, has alleged that all the fuss being made by his wife is just to make money. This was revealed through the embattled hotelier instagram page not long after he apologized openly to his wife over their fracas.
