A staff who once worked with Mercy Aigbe has opened up about the actress’s unusual marriage to husband Lanre Gentry.
Aigbe’s marriage to Gentry has all but crashed, with allegations ranging from domestic violence to mental instability from both parties.
According to Punch, a worker at Aigbe’s Mag Divas Boutique, located at Omole, Lagos, described their marriage as “strange”, revealing their frequent change of moods.
“Their marriage has always been a ‘strange’ one. On some days, they could come in laughing together and act all lovey-dovey and on some other days, they’d enter the shop arguing and cursing each other at the top of their voices,” the staff said.
“There have been several times that aunty Mercy and her husband came into the shop arguing at the top of their voices. There was a particular day that the argument was so heated that we thought the situation was going to degenerate badly. They continued shouting even as they went into Mercy’s office. However, they emerged some time later full of smiles and kissing each other. We, the staff, were really surprised and the incident strengthened our resolve not to interfere in their squabbles as they could be unpredictable.”
“The last scene I witnessed of them was when her husband came into the shop shouting. He accused Mercy of not giving him enough attention. He also complained that she doesn’t always cook for him and their children but prefers going to parties.”
The case has already been reported to the police, and is set to go to court soon.
