This is the beginning of the end of actress Mercy Aigbe-Gentry’s enviable marriage.
Kemiashefonlovehaven exclusively gathered that the pretty actress, who reported the case of domestic violence meted against her by her husband to the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs, has gotten a Restraining Order from the court.
The Restraining Order, (also called a “protective order”) is a court order that can protect someone from being physically or sexually abused, threatened, stalked, or harassed. The person getting the restraining order is called the “protected person.” The person the restraining order is against is the “restrained person.” Sometimes, restraining orders include other “protected persons” like family or household members of the protected person.
Now that Lanre Gentry has got the Restrained Order, he has to keep a certain distance away (like 50 or 100 yards) from Mercy, where she lives; her business place, her son’s school, his vehicles he gave her and other important places Mercy goes. Meanwhile, Lanre Gentry, who obviously regretted his violent action against his wife, has been posting photos of himself and Mercy on Instagram saying he loves his wife. He has also posted throwback pictures of their ‘olden’ days when Mercy was ‘nobody.’
The four-year-old union that has produced a son was placed on the front burner of discussions on Friday April 28, when pictures of a battered Mercy’s face went viral on social media. The actress’ husband Lanre Gentry was said to have inflicted the injuries on her while the couple had a fight during the Easter holiday.
Also in the media was a copy of a CT scan she carried out after the violence on her which indicated that she had a fracture in her skull. She was reported to have been on admission at a hospital where she was treated as a result of the assault.
Recall that Lanre Gentry was married to his first wife before Mercy. Also, he was said to have married actress, Bimbo Akisanya, who was like a mentor to Mercy before he allegedly impregnated Mercy and she became his wife.
Bimbo Akisanya, who didn’t have kids for Gentry left and got married again to another man. She is now a mother.
Meanwhile, Mercy is the fourth woman to have kids for Lanre Gentry. Aside his first wife who had daughters for him, a certain Opeyemi Amudat bore his first son, whom he christened Lanre Gentry. Opeyemi was impregnated as an undergraduate and her sister was a friend to Gentry’s first wife! Also on the list of his women is an Igbo policewoman who has also left his house. One of the reasons that caused fracas in his marriage to Mercy was infidelity from his part (many of his friends and relatives have also accused Mercy of being adulterous too). It was gathered and alleged that Lanre was dating Opemititi, a young lady, who lives in Abeokuta but comes to Lagos regularly. The lady also known as “Queen Stunner” was said to be very close to Mercy and visited her while she was still married and living with Lanre. Opemititi took Mercy as a ‘Big Sister’ and mentor.
There are allegations that the estranged husband of Mercy is having an affair with Opemititi.
Mercy is separated from Lanre and moved out of the home. The pretty actress has not addressed the issue but has put up images that address putting a stop to Domestic Violence on her social media space.
