Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe Gentry has been beaten by her husband of seven years, Lanre Gentry, so much that the actress was recently hospitalized in Lagos.
Although, the cause of the fracass is not known, sources revealed that there were allegations of adultery levelled on both Mercy and her husband.
It was alleged that Mercy’s husband has been involved with a lady called Opemititi aka Queen Stunner, who was a close of the Gentry family before she and Mercy fell out.
Mercy had posted a call to resist domestic violence, writing on Instagram, “Say NO to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE… Only a Coward hits a woman! REAL MEN don’t HIT.”
However, her husband responded on his own Instagram account on Friday, writing, “Say no to the promiscuous and irresponsible women” but later deleted the picture and reiterated his love for his wife, posting a picture of both of them at an event and writing, “I love my wife so much.”
This is however, not the first time that reports of domestic violence have been associated with Mercy Aigbe’s marriage. A report in 2013 said she was beaten by her husband during the recording of a TV show.
But Mercy and her husband denied that such an incident ever happened.
This time however, the actress with severe injuries, is still receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Lagos.
