In an exclusive interview with BONONLINE on Wednesday morning, Mercy Aigbe’s husband, Lanre Gentry said “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.”
When asked why he had to beat up his wife, he disclosed that contrary to the news that made rounds about him beating her up, it was Mercy that ganged up with her friends in her designer’s (CEO Luminee) house to attack him. He claimed that while the others were beating him up, his wife also hit him hard with a stool.
Lanre Gentry who invoked biblical curses on himself swore that he has never beaten up Mercy before despite the fact that he has caught Mercy cheating on him with different men. He cited an example of last year when she said that she was going to China for 2 weeks but instead went to a Dubai hotel with a man. Lanre who further proved his point showed BON different Whatsapp conversations and a particular one where Mercy asked a third party to get some Dollars from the man for her.
When asked what he did about this Dubai issue, he said that “I confronted my wife but she said she only wanted to collect money from him – a married woman!!! But I discovered later that it was the same man that paid for the house in Magodo she just moved to”. Lanre added that he understands her antics perfectly as all she wants is to live the life of a single woman and that is what he has tolerated all these years from her, and no man can tolerate that from any woman.
According to him, “I worshiped Mercy and I have deposited N8million at Benefits Motors to buy her a N16million Range Rover Evoque for her 40th birthday. I have also paid N1.2million for a hall opposite Sheraton Hotel to celebrate her big, but she has her eyes on other things”.
When asked why he has not consulted her family to intervene, he said Mercy has no regard for her parents. He cited an example of last year when her dad collapsed while in the queue to get his pension and was rushed to the hospital, only for Mercy to be informed she lied that she was in Calabar and till now, had not gone to see the old man.
Lanre further claimed that he was the one who went there and spent about N180 thousand adding that because she refused to take care of her mom, he put the old woman on a salary of N25 thousand per month.
