LIB Exclusive: Mercy Aigbe's 7-year marriage to Lanre Gentry crashes over alleged battering. See her battered face (photos)

For a while now all has not been well in the marriage of Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe. Her 7-year marriage to Lagos based hotelier, Lanre Gentry seems to have crashed. Sources tell LIB that Mercy has been enduring domestic violence for a long time in her marriage but it's gotten worse lately.

We learnt that the couple had a nasty fight last week that left the actress with severe injuries and she's still receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Lagos.
LIB has been able to exclusively get photos of the injury and they don't look nice at all.
A few hours ago, Mercy through her Instagram page hinted on domestic violence with a post that reads, 'Say NO to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE...... Only a Coward hits a woman! REAL MEN don't HIT!'.

Her husband responded with a post that reads, 'Say No to the promiscuous and irresponsible women'.
Another source tells LIB that Mercy's hubby has a fair skinned mistress named Opemititi who has allegedly been fingered as the one responsible for her hubby's change of attitude.

Idiot,must he hit her. Even if she is promiscuous, which I doubt is hitting her the answer. Stupid insecure fool. And he still has the mouth to talk. Shameless fool I have lost all my respect for the guy. I really used to admire their marriage.

Is the mistress responsible for the domestic violence or irresponsibility and promiscuity-which also be responsible for the existence of a mistress (es) ?

honestly the fact that someone is saying marriage is for better for worse is the exact reason why women DIE before their time, in the hands of their husbands. like WTF????? Look at how he beat this beautiful woman and its clearly not the first time. no relationship is worth all this pain or worth dying for. MERCY, LEAVE!!!!!RUN!!!!!!!This is an animal youre dealing with and staying isnt setting a good example for your daughter. this is why she may grow up with self esteem and self worth issues and let men treat her like shit. This is unacceptable. You are NOT a prisoner, no marriage is worth being battered. Leave and get yourself time to heal. You will overcome it all!!!

"Ah you are"(in chief Zebruzayah's voice). This is why i can never believe any "we are so inlove" social media posting. Infact, the more people post their lovey-dovey photos of how happy their marriage is the more i suspect all is not well 'cos they are trying too hard. Domestic violence has always been the norm in African marriages. I hardly know any woman of my mum's generation who did get beaten up. The good thing is these days the women voice out when they reach a breaking point. Its mot only amongst celebritys even normal women suffer the same fate. Women please dont continue to cover up for these wicked men like our mothers did. If you happen to be living in the West, report to the police and press charges. When they marry oyinbo women they wont dare beat them up like they beat us up.

I think we women should learn how to run out if we sense physical contact might happen instead of waiting to receive beating.

When u choose ur bf as husband n ur husband as bf, xpect dis kind of result cos HUSBAND will never raise his hand on his WIFE.

Dede said...

Even if she was promiscuous! Then divorce her! Afterall, nobody beats men when they do the same. As for this allegation, it is common for insecure men who marry beautiful wives. Even if she smiles at another man, he will assume she is cheating because in his heart, he knows she is too good for him. Bunch of halfbrained cream.

Husband snatching is not good. First, the marriage is already built on faulty foundation, thereby making it vulnerable to attacks
2. What chased the first one has not been dealt with, it is still there and it's coming for you, no matter how long.
3. Stealing somebody's happiness for your own good will always backfire because we serve a God of justice.
Mercy sorry, I hate domestic violence, but I also women oppressing other women.

The pretty ones are d most irresponsible ones ... their beauty is usually the problem ht drives them...social media will enter and they loose their mind totally....when married women will be exposing their bodies and breast all Cuz the IG and snapchat

Anonymous said...

Tell married women especially celebrity to beware of IG and snapchat...it controls their lifesytle & attitude too much....a Mercy tht still shows off breast will not have a good marriage

Anonymous said...

Women please stop going into marriage out pressure. That's why women go in and marry a married man because you want to answer "mrs". This Mr. Gentry was very married when Mercy married him and they put his real wife aside. Well Mercy get well soon.

eunymz said...

In as much as she snatched the man from another woman I still pity her now...

Anonymous said...

Yup, his real wife was put aside completely in Ireland with gentry's children. The woman maintained a very painful but dignified silence trying to raise her children on her own whilst Mercy was gallivanting with and eventually stole her husband. It would have been okay if mercy was a little quiet... She would grant interviews claiming he man as hers and hers alone.
Mercy I hope you get better but please don't look for someone else's marriage to break oh Biko.
All those men that would leave their wives abroad claiming they need to go and set up in Naija and they'd instruct the woman to stay abroad to raise the children for sometime...
Mercy Johnson you are next. Then Foluke Daramola... Your own is even scary, you actually chased his wife and 3 children out in that same Naija and moved your own children in. You are wicked oh and you are next.

Anonymous said...

Excuse me for that nonsense you just commented. The pretty ones are the promiscuous? The promiscuous ones are the ones with poor home training, greed for life above thier means or too weak willed not to be influenced by bad friends and too weak minded to know that as a woman she is worth more than sleeping around. It has nothing to do with beauty. Please receive sense.

This Mercy sha, I know her story well from unilag, she had a close friend of Roma in school then, of Roma was dating a yahoo guy named chinenye, the next thing oh outta nowhere Mercy took in for the same chinenye guy oh, which led to igeoma and chinenye's breakup. She gave birth to a daughter and moved in with the guy, she refused to leave oh even tho the guy was busy trying to get ifeoma back. It took about 2yrs for chinenye and his family to throw Mercy out on accusations of jazz. This was way back early 2000

besides the karma...wat did she do to deserve it?no man is an animal that wld just start beating u.women never admit to be the first to raise their hands or incite a violent situation..my wife is always quick to bite(lock my thumb between her gnashing teeth) or hold my dick as if to damage it...or cut me with a knife....so pls ow do i defend myself?
most of u wld say:be a man,take ur shirt and walk away...
yea right!!!!na so....

what gain do you have to break a home

Anonymous said...

I read with disgust as people write that she deserves it or serves her right n other idiotic n insensitive comments. Those people really need a psychic evaluation. Nothing....i repeat...nothing warrants to be beaten. Wen u r not handling a child. That is the purest form of cowardice. If twas someone of equal strength and all wild it have gone down d same way....was it adultery,,lying, stealing. ...nothing warrants a beating. Send her away, leave d house for her or take other actions but y in d world wld u beat d mother of ur kids u claim to love.
Goes a long way to tell we parents to take our time to train up our children properly since dis is becoming rampant.
Nonsense wild animal. After beating her to a pulp, he can boil n eat her so that we would know he is George of the jungle. All these mentally deranged wild life walking around as business men
