Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe‘s husband Lanre Gentry has mentioned that he is not jealous of her success.
The actress recently bought a new house alongside other achievements in her career. Her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry however did not send in any congratulatory message and some Mercy’s fans feel he is jealous about her success.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop however, Gentry vehemently debunked the insinuations.
“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).”
Speaking on his recent face-off with Zone 2 Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, in which he enjoined her to counsel her celebrity friends in Nollywood to stop living fake lives after she made a post online warning people to stop living misleading lives, Gentry said,
“Dolapo is my very good friend and a very nice police officer. I just told her to talk to all her friends in the Nigerian entertainment industry that live fake lives that they should desist from doing that.”
On why he didn’t reach out to her privately instead of giving the ‘advice’ on social media, Lanre said, “What I wrote was an answer to her post on Instagram.
