I can’t allow Mercy Aigbe to fend for herself – Estranged husband


Actress, mercy Aigbe’s estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, hinted that financially the thespian has not cut the umbilical cord with him.

The celebrity couple’s marriage was plagued by public and toxic row including alleged assault levelled by Mercy against Gentry over unfounded slur that she was having extramarital affairs.

But the hotelier has not ruled out reconciliation even as he claimed the actress enjoyed financial support from him in an interview with Punchng.com.

“Me and Mercy are not fighting. If I want to see her, I would call her and if she needs anything, she also calls me. We have a good rapport. God has the final say over our relationship and He knows how it would turn out in the future. I take care of my children.

“I can’t speak for other fathers but I carry out my responsibilities as a man. I still see Mercy as a part of me. It’s only a mentally unstable man that would leave a woman with children to go and fend for herself,” he told the paper.
