“Mercy Aigbe Just Wants to be free, she doesn’t want to be under any man”-Lanre Gentry

Actress Mercy Aigbe’s estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, is still revealing certain about his troubled marriage with the movie star.

According to Gentry, contrary to what the actress is going around saying, he has always supported Mercy even with her movie productions.
He told Punch, "I laugh when I hear people saying that Mercy fed me and that she was the breadwinner of the family. I have always contributed to all her movie projects. However, I am not bearing a grudge against her and I still love her. All I own belong to our kids. I would rather forget about the feud and move on."
Adding, "The only movie Mercy ever used her money to shoot was Abimbola. All her other movies were paid for by the marketer. Meanwhile, I support her with whatever I can. Whenever she had to shoot any movie, she would use my hotel. She would lodge her crew there for weeks until they finished shooting. Anyway, I’m grateful to God that I was able to help her stand on her feet. I know God has blessed me to be a source of blessing to her. So, I have no regrets."
Talking about regrets and his estranged wife soiling his image,
"I have no regrets whatsoever. I have never regretted being with any woman. Besides, I’m still legally married to Mercy. Till I hear from her about a divorce, I believe I’m still her husband and that’s why I still wear my wedding ring at all times. Maybe you should just ask her why she is destroying my image."
On why she left their matrimonial home,
"It was during the Easter period. We were expecting some guests and I gave her N160, 000 to prepare food and other things. But that was when she decided to go for a photo shoot. From there, she went for AY’s comedy show around 12 am.
It was even her publicist that told me this. I then went to her stylist’s place because I was angry. We argued but I didn’t beat her; her publicist and stylist were there that day so they can prove me wrong. I am not a violent person; as a matter of fact, whenever I’m angry, I don’t talk. I don’t even want to say much about this because it is a family issue and I want to protect my family."
Speaking further on those domestic violence allegations, the businessman insists Aigbe is deceiving Nigerians.
He said, "I have never touched Mercy in my life. All what she is doing and saying is made-up. Even her face that appeared badly bruised was achieved through make-up. She knows what she is doing; she just wants to be free. She doesn’t want to be under any man."
