Actress, Mercy Aigbe’s estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, has insisted that he has not been beating his wife as people are painting him to have been doing.
According to Lanre, he had shown her love and support in the last seven years despite some unbelievable things he had seen her do and endure for the sake of keeping the marriage and her image intact.
“Would she have been in my house for 7 years if I beat her? I don’t know why she pulled such a picture stunt but I know the person that rented the house for her and the pictures and all are just stunts to paint me bad and gain sympathy. You know where Mercy was before I married her and in 7 years, I think I have tried but she has other ideas and most of the things that I take from her, most men wouldn’t take it and I hope she won’t allow me to talk if she keeps smearing my name. I am trying to be calm because I don’t want to use my hand destroy what I help create,” he told BON.
Mercy Aigbe is reportedly pressing charges against her husband for battery and assault. She has not said a word on the issue till this moment even though she was alleged to have personally leaked pictures of her battered face and her domestic violence story to the media.
