The salacious and sensational marital spat of star actress, Mercy Aigbe (38) and her hotelier and auto merchant estranged husband, Olanrewaju Gentry (52), is continually being damaged by the warring parties.
Instead of sheathing swords as a mark of respect for their five children, both expose more ruinous details about their 7-year ill-fated union.
And here are 2 fresh ways the marriage is irreparably damaged:
1. The interview Mercy Aigbe granted to Broadway TV exposed too many details in the troubled marriage.
For one, she mentioned that her husband was once detained for seven months! While she didn’t disclose the reason for the incarceration, one could label it business related.
What’s more, she catalogued some of the previous battery, and painted a lucid picture of the last insane attack which landed her in hospital and led to this public spectacle.
Family secrets were methodically revealed, with little details left to the imagination of stupefied observers.
2. The remand of Olanrewaju Gentry is a bitter episode he would refuse to forget and forgive, as he dismisses the fact that it was actually his fault.
The matter was to be resolved by the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Response Team, but he didn’t cooperate with them.
Now, he has spent a week behind the high walls of Kirikiri Prisons, and thoroughly humiliated.
So, how can they be reconciled when they take steps to score points that will permanently damage the reputation of the other?
And the cases in court, one before Mrs. Davies Abegunde in Ogba magistrate court, and the other in the court of Mrs. Y. O. Aje Afunwa in GRA Ikeja, have not even kicked off.
