Lanre and MercyThis is the beginning of the end of actress Mercy Aigbe-Gentry’s enviable marriage.
Kemiashefonlovehaven exclusively gathered that the pretty actress,
who reported the case of domestic violence meted against her by her
husband to the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs, has gotten a
Restraining Order from the court.
The Restraining Order, (also called a “protective order”) is a court
order that can protect someone from being physically or sexually abused,
threatened, stalked, or harassed. The person getting the restraining
order is called the “protected person.” The person the restraining order
is against is the “restrained person.” Sometimes, restraining orders
include other “protected persons” like family or household members of
the protected person.
Now that Lanre Gentry has got the Restrained Order, he has to keep a
certain distance away (like 50 or 100 yards) from Mercy, where she
lives; her business place, her son’s school, his vehicles he gave her
and other important places Mercy goes.
Meanwhile, Lanre Gentry, who obviously regretted his violent action
against his wife, has been posting photos of himself and Mercy on
Instagram saying he loves his wife. He has also posted throwback
pictures of their ‘olden’ days when Mercy was ‘nobody.’
The four-year-old union that has produced a son was placed on the
front burner of discussions on Friday April 28, when pictures of a
battered Mercy’s face went viral on social media. The actress’ husband
Lanre Gentry was said to have inflicted the injuries on her while the
couple had a fight during the Easter holiday.
Also in the media was a copy of a CT scan she carried out after the
violence on her which indicated that she had a fracture in her skull.
She was reported to have been on admission at a hospital where she was treated as a result of the assault.
Mercy is the fourth woman to have kids for Lanre Gentry. Aside his
first wife who had daughters for him, a certain Opeyemi Amudat bore his
first son, whom he christened Lanre Gentry.
Opeyemi was impregnated as an undergraduate and her sister was a friend to Gentry’s first wife!
Also on the list of his women is an Igbo policewoman who has also left his house.
One of the reasons that caused fracas in his marriage to Mercy was
infidelity from his part (many of his friends and relatives have also
accused Mercy of being adulterous too).
It was gathered and alleged that Lanre was dating Opemititi, a young lady, who lives in Abeokuta but comes to Lagos regularly.
The lady also known as “Queen Stunner” was said to be very close to
Mercy and visited her while she was still married and living with Lanre.
Opemititi took Mercy as a ‘Big Sister’ and mentor.
There are allegations that the estranged husband of Mercy is having an affair with Opemititi.
Mercy is separated from Lanre and moved out of the home. The pretty
actress has not addressed the issue but has put up images that address
putting a stop to Domestic Violence on her social media space.
