Indeed, the boil is on in the marriage between actress Mercy Aigbe and her now estranged husband, Lanre.
The marriage which had being on the front burner of rumour mills lately has not had it smoothly.
The husband of the Nollywood actress has just said his seven-year-old stay with Mercy has not witnessed any form of violence. He declared he has always been a pillar of support for her acting career.
Speaking with Best Of Nollywood, he said , “Would she have been in my house for 7 years if I beat her? I don’t know why she pulled such a picture stunt but I know the person that rented the house for her and the pictures and all are just stunts to paint me bad and gain sympathy.
“You know where Mercy was before I married her and in 7 years, I think I have tried but she has other ideas and most of the things that I take from her, most men wouldn’t take it and I hope she won’t allow me to talk if she keeps smearing my name.
“I am trying to be calm because I don’t want to use my hand destroy what I help create,” he added.
The businessman, who met Mercy while she was working at Zenith Bank some years ago, married her officially four years ago. The marriage is blessed with a son.
The news made the rounds on Friday that Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry was battered by her husband, Lanre Gentry and she had suffered injuries on the face. She was reported to have been on admission at a hospital where she was treated as a result of the assault.
Mercy, the pretty actress has kept mum on this issue.
