Nollywood actress and mother of two Mercy Aigbe is making her way to becoming one of the most controversial celebrities of 2018. The beautiful actress who had to battle for her life after several cases of domestic violence in her matrimonial home recently revealed that she’s still married.
In a recent interview, the actress who was asked what her current relationship status is stated boldly that she’s still married. It is unclear whether she meant that all between herself and estranged husband, Aiswaju Lanre Gentry has been forgiven or if she’s still legally bound to him, pending when they get an official divorce.
In any case, recall that the entire internet was moved to pity when the reports of Mercy being brutally beaten by her husband flooded social media. Aigbe who had been married for seven year prior to that became a testament on how marriages can be difficult and sometimes, dangerous.
It is now surprising to hear that she might still be with the man after she dragged him to court and Lagos state government was even in on the battle. For the sake of her fans, it is easier to believe that she meant she is yet to get an official divorce. However, chances are it could also mean there’s a new man in her life and she must be secretly married.
Although it is hard to guess the mystery man, many rumours have been flying around over her relationship with Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode. Mercy Aigbe is known for her unique style and dressing. At the 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, Mercy Aigbe’s dress earned her great applause from fashion stakeholders, and she trended on on social media even after ceremony.
The dress was commended for its unique design. In November 2014, Aigbe launched her clothing store, Mag Divas Boutique in Lagos, then opened another outlet in Ibadan. She was awarded Fashion Entrepreneur of The Year at Links and Glitz World Awards.
In 2013, Mercy Aigbe got married to a Nigerian hotelier, Lanre Gentry and has two children and three stepdaughters. In 2017, she shared photos of herself after allegedly being assaulted by her husband. She consequently separated from her husband due to claims of domestic violence, and started a campaign against it. Mercy Aigbe recently acquires new mansion worth N200million
