Lanre Gentry Shares Insights On How His Estranged Wife & Actress, Mercy Aigbe Is Still A Part Of His Life
Lanre Gentry, the ex-husband of Nollywood favorite, Mercy Aigbe has opened up about the current dynamics of his relationship with the mum-of-two, stating emphatically that he has not remarried after their split.
In a new interview with Saturday Beats, Gentry distanced himself from insinuations that he had found love with another woman following rumors that trailed a post he made celebrating a woman he called his ‘wife’ a few days ago.
Gentry has now clarified that the woman whose photo he shared and heaped praises on is in fact his brother’s wife and not his new lover as many had assumed. He shared that himself and actress, Mercy Aigbe have a working relationship and that they co-parent their children without hassle.
Who said that I have a new wife? A lot of people just make assumptions based on my Instagram posts. The lady that I referred to as my wife is my younger brother’s wife.
She lives in London with her family. I called her my wife because she’s my brother’s wife. People didn’t read my post very well. I wouldn’t tell my supposed wife to greet her family.
I don’t know why some Nigerians are quick to jump to conclusions when they see innocent and harmless posts online.
Mercy Aigbe knows the lady I celebrated very well. This is not the first time that people have speculated that I’ve married another woman based on social media posts.
It seems a lot of people are just obsessed with marriage for me. I’m a Yoruba man and if I want to marry another wife, I would do that.

Gentry also claimed that he still has a good relationship with Aigbe. He added,
Me and Mercy are not fighting. If I want to see her, I would call her and if she needs anything, she also calls me. We have a good rapport.See Also
God has the final say over our relationship and He knows how it would turn out in the future. I take care of my children.
I can’t speak for other fathers but I carry out my responsibilities as a man. I still see Mercy as a part of me.
It’s only a mentally unstable man that would leave a woman with children to go and fend for herself.
I pay my children’s school fees diligently and I thank God that their mother is also taking good care of them.
It’s not easy for a woman to work and also take care of the children.
