I’m not jealous of Mercy Aigbe, I have many houses – Lanre Gentry

The news went viral last year when popular actress, Mercy Aigbe, alleged that her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry, had physically assaulted her. According to the actress, Gentry often battered her and the last incident was the straw that broke the camel’s back. In his defence, Lanre denied ever laying his hands on his wife.

However, the incident led to Mercy moving out of Gentry’s house and they have been estranged ever since.

Mercy recently bought a house in Lagos and opened a new store in Ibadan. This has led some misguided people to insinuate that Gentry may be jealous of her success.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop however, Gentry vehemently debunked the insinuations. He said, “I have no reason to be jealous of the fact that Mercy bought a house. Do you know how many houses I have in Lagos alone? I am not jealous of anyone because God always makes me happy.”

Responding to a question on whether there are any reconciliation plans in the offing between them, Gentry said, “I am not angry with her and we are not fighting. We are together and we will always talk.”

But is he willing to take another wife? Lanre said, “I have no plans to do that for now because I am still legally married to Mercy but time will tell. I am waiting to hear from her (as regards dissolving the marriage legally).”
