‘We’re on it’ – Gentry
Star actress cum film maker, Mercy Aigbe, has denied any peace move going on between herself and her estranged hubby, Olanrewaju Gentry, courtesy of the families from both sides. She added that there is no iota of truth in the tale.
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Tuesday. June 27, 2017, the Edo born thespian reacted swiftly saying, “There’s nothing like that going on. Besides, we’re still in court. So, I can’t comment on the matter now. What I am concerned about at the moment is the Walk Against Domestic Violence which will hold on July 13, 2017. That’s all l am after now.”
Asked if the programme has anything to do with her marital mess, the pretty role interpreter said, “It has nothing to do with that. Even, I am not the one behind it. It’s the initiative of Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi, wife of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja 2). That’s what we’re promoting now.”
Meanwhile, when we contacted the film maker’s estranged husband, Gentry on Thursday, June 29, 2017, he insisted there was peace move by their families and efforts are still on in that respect.
“Yes, we’re still on it. Efforts are ongoing towards resolving the issue amicably. But we were in court yesterday, June 28, 2017. The case has been adjourned to August 8, 2017.”
Asked to shed light on the alleged wife battery which was the reason his estranged wife, Mercy cited for packing out of their Omole, Lagos residence weeks back, the Ilesa, Osun born hotelier stated, “There’s nothing to talk about the matter now because we’re still in court over it. I didn’t beat Mercy. She is my wife and l still love her. But I just want the public to help ask her these questions: Where was she on Easter Sunday at 11.30 pm? What happened to the N160,000 I gave her to prepare food for family and friends for Easter celebration? Mercy still remains my wife, I love her. I am not fighting her, but I don’t know why she is fighting me. You can just ask her when you call her, let her tell you why she’s fighting me.”
Weeks back, things fell apart between Aigbe and her estranged hubby, Gentry and the ‘centre has since refused to hold’.
The alleged assault levelled against the latter by the former led to the collapse of their 10 year union which has only produced a boy, Juwon who is now seven years old.
