Lanre Gentry, estranged husband to Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, in a chat with BONONLINE, on Wednesday morning said his wife is mentally ill.
“Mercy has mental issues and I’m the one who knows how many places we’ve been to so she can remain stable. I have papers to prove this.”
He also disclosed that he did not beat Mercy as widely speculated, instead it was Mercy who ganged up with her friends and her designer, Luminee House, to attack him. He claimed that while the others beat him, his wife hit him hard with a stool. He also swore to have laid a finger on her despite having caught her several times with different men.
Lanre revealed that one time his wife had told him she was going to China for 2 weeks but instead, went to a Dubai hotel with a man. He showed BON different whatsapp conversations and a particular one where Mercy was asking a third party to get some dollars from the man for her, to further prove this.
“When I confronted my wife, she said she only wanted to collect money from him – a married woman!!! But I discovered that it was the same man that paid for the Magodo house she just moved to.
See, I understand her antics too well. All she wants is be free to live the life of a single woman. What I have tolerated from her all these years, no man can tolerate from any woman.
I worshipped her and I have deposited N8m at Benefit Motors to buy her a N16m Range Rover Evoque for her 40th birthday. I have also paid N1.2m for a hall opposite Sheraton Hotel to celebrate her big, but she has her eyes on other things.”
On why he never consulted her family to intervene, he says Mercy has no regard for her parents, adding that her dad collapsed while on the queue to get his pension last year and was rushed to the hosipital. Mercy was informed but till date hasn’t gone to see the old man. He claimed that he was the one that went there and spent about N180k adding that because she refused to take care of her mom, he put the old woman on a salary of N25k per month.
