Lanre Gentry, the estranged husband to Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, has unveiled plans to tie the knot with his new lover in a few months.
This comes barely 48 hours after Lanre Gentry and Mercy Aigbe fought dirty on social media over Father’s day post.
In an interview with The Punch Newspaper, Lanre Gentry said he has no problem with Mercy Aigbe and revealed what transpired between them regarding the war of words on social media.
He said; “I do not have any problem with Mercy and I am not fighting with her. She is the one that is fighting; I deserve to wish myself a happy Father’s Day whenever it is celebrated. Woli Agba made a funny skit which I liked; I reposted it on my page and wished myself a Happy Father’s Day.
The next thing was that she insinuated that the message I posted was directed at her. I told her the post was not direct to her. That was it. I do not have a problem with her, neither am I fighting with her. I am a man, so I do not believe in gossiping or backbiting; it is mostly women that do that. I do not need to join issues with Mercy.”
According to Lanre Gentry, apart from having a child with Mercy Aigbe, they have no relationship. However, contrary to the fact that the actress portrays him as a ‘deadbeat father’, he provides for their son.
Lanre Gentry said he’s already divorced and would be tying the knot with his new lover in September.
He said, “I do not have a relationship with Mercy, and by the grace of God, I will re-marry in September this year. I have my fiancée that I am going to marry. So you see that I do not have any issues with her. When it comes to Mercy and me, we are already divorced. She dragged me to five different courts for a divorce, and she has got it. I do not have anything to do with her again.
