Mercy Aigbe has finally confirmed reports that She was a victim of Domestic violence.
The actress took to Instagram on Friday morning to deny recent claims of mental instability made against her by estranged husband Lanre Gentry.
Aigbe said that she had endured “beating and harassment” from Gentry for several years and threatened to sue him for making false claims against her.
She wrote: “Dear Lanre Gentry, It breaks my heart that I have to do this but as it is you have left me with no choice. I had sleepless nights because I just couldn’t comprehend why someone I loved, someone with whom I have a child will be hell bent on destroying me, I just cannot comprehend it.
“I read with tears in my eyes all the LIES you fabricated against me, LIES you feel will justify your inhumane act, LIES you feel will gain you public sympathy and LIES calculated to bring my person to public opprobrium.”
“You claim (1) I am mentally unstable (2) That you have caught me with different men (3) That I do not take care of my parents (4) That a man rented an apartment for me. LIES all LIES.
“Dear hubby I challenge you to back on your claims with PROOF. Hmmmm Lanre you forget quickly, you forget how I have labored and stood by you all these years, even tho all what I was getting from you was constant beating, harrasment, threat to my life and threat to destroying my image if I dare leave you.”
