I Don’t Intend To Dump My Husband, He Only Needs Help – Mercy Aigbe

Actress, Mercy Aigbe, who is currently in a legal battle with her husband, Lanre Gentry over domestic violence has said that she still wants to build a home with her husband, adding that they just need some help.

According to her, she had stayed to endure all the beating because she did not want to disappoint people that see her as a role model and also for her children.

Speaking with Broadway Africa, Mercy disclosed that:

“My husband was in detention for over seven months and I never left him or go anywhere. Why would I want to go now? He says all this is make-up. He is not showing any form of remorse and still sponsoring lies against me.

“It’s not like I wanted to walk away but I just feel like we need help. I spoke to my husband’s brother about it. I told him I was going to pack out for some time while my husband seeks therapy.

“I just wanted to feel safe, that is why I moved my things out. This last beating was brutal. I actually thought I was going to die. I’m still coughing and sneezing blood even after three weeks.

“I stayed because of my children and because a lot of people look up to me. I was a role model of some sort and I really wanted to keep it together. I just wanted a home,”

When asked how long the beating had continued, she said for as far back as 2013.

“I never for once came out to say that my husband did not beat me. The video people were referring to happened in 2013 when there were rumours of such and I did a video recording alongside my husband to debunk the claim. At that time I had to do it to protect his image and my marriage. I had to do a live video at that time.

“He beats me consistently. I stayed because I loved him and because every time he beats me, he begs and gets family and friends to beg me. He promised regularly to change but he never did. When my husband gets angry, he gets physical, not only to me but to anyone.

“He has done that with my househelp who reported him to the Police years ago. ”
