Lanre Gentry, husband of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has said that his wife is mentally unstable.
The hotelier made the allegation Wednesday in a chat with Best of Nollywood.
“Mercy has mental issues and I am the one who knows how many places we’ve been to so she can remain stable. I have papers to prove these.”
Lanre debunked claims by Mercy that he beat her, adding that contrary to her claims she was the one who actually connived with her friends to attack him.
He insisted that he had never beaten his wife throughout their marriage as he invoked biblical curses on himself, to prove the authenticity of his claim.
He alleged that sometime last year Mercy claimed to be going to China for two weeks, but he later discovered that she was holed up in a Dubai hotel with a man.
Lanre shared several WhatsApp conversations from Mercy, in which one revealed her asking a third party to get some dollars from the man for her.
“When I challenged 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, which I also found out had been rented over a month ago.”
He added, “See, I understand Mercy’s antics too well. All she wants is to move out of my house and 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 worship mercy and I have deposited N8m at Benefit Motors to buy her a N16m Range Rover ENVOGUE 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.”
When asked why he had not contacted Mercy’s family to intervene, he said she had no regards for her parents. He added that he was the one taking care of them as she has refused to cater for their welfare.
