‘I agree that I’m a fool, I stayed because of my children’ – Mercy Aigbe bares all in new interview
Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry who has since removed ‘Gentry’ (her husband’s name) from her social media accounts have revealed in an exclusive interview with Broadway TV the details of the scandal that have trailed her and her husband for the past few weeks.
About Beating… “He beats me consistently.” When probed on why she stayed that long after the consistent beating, Mercy revealed that she did because she wanted a home. “I stayed because I loved him and because everytime 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 house help who reported him to the Police years ago. “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”.
Why she wants to leave now… “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 blood
The Nollywood actress revealed that her husband broke her orbits which will necessitate a surgery for her to see properly. “I’m still coughing and sneezing blood even after three weeks”, she reveals how severe the injury inflicted upon her is.
My Husband Was Sleeping With a Girl
Aigbe also revealed that the last incident started few days before when she discovered that her husband was sleeping with a lady. A lady she claimed to be her friend whom she was close to.
This was a regular attitude from her husband; a man she claims has slept with a lot of people close to her, even her PAs.
He confronted him and it led to a huge argument which was turning violent before she had to keep quiet.
