News broke earlier today of the crash of Mercy Aigbe’s marriage because of Domestic Violence, reports reaching AyolaTv from BON online who dug deeper to know what could have happened to yet another celebrity couple’s wedding. Lanre Gentry the hubby, was said to have beaten the top actress to stupor.
On Easter Sunday, Mercy’s husband on his way to his office gave her money to cook and bring it to his hotel in Oregun as he was going to be having friends visiting him but hours after he got to the hotel, his wife stopped picking his calls and when he probed further to find out what has happened, he found out that his wife has gone out for a party without even preparing lunch or dinner for him or for their son who had to make do with pizza for the day.
Later that night, Larry on learning that his wife was at her designers house (Luminee) went there and tried taking her back home but she refused saying she was tired of the marriage.
This infuriated Larry who descended on her beating Mercy to stupor. The drama started with name calling and Mercy vowing never to return to her matrimonial home again a house she called a cursed house. Mercy was said to have cried helplessly as she could not fight him even with the help of Luminee.
After Larry left, Mercy was taking to an hospital and the next morning, she called an Estate Agent who within 48 hours fixed a place for her in Magodo.
Efforts to speak with both Mercy and Larry on friday evening was unsuccessful as phone calls were not picked. Sources with knowledge of the couple say both have just been tolerating themselves for about 4 years now as Mercy laments to people of her dual role of mother and father as her husband’s financial status has dwindled while Larry’s associates condemn Mercy for her infidelity. This behaviour was said to have driven Larry to the edge and made him to constantly check on Mercy’s phone calls and messages. Friends were therefore not surprised that this is now happening.
One will recall years back when the husband almost beat her because she disappeared at a nightclub where an event was held in her honour and her phone was suddenly unreachable. They later made up and put out a video denying the incident.
