Trouble in Paradise: Mercy Aigbe reportedly beaten up by husband, Lanre Gentry

In 2013, domestic violence allegations trailed the seemingly perfect marriage of Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe Gentry and her hotelier husband, Lanre Gentry. It had then been reported that Mercy was beaten up by her husband at a public event.

Mercy and her husband had then denied this report in a video, saying nothing of such happened.

It however appears, something did happen as new reports claim the couple were reportedly in a nasty fight last week that left the actress with severe injuries and she’s still receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Lagos.

According to LIB, the actress has been enduring domestic violence for a long time in her marriage but it has gotten worse lately. Below are exclusive photos of Mercy showing her battered face:

The actress went on to post a photo of a battered woman on her Instagram page with the caption, “Say no to domestic violence. Only a Coward hits a woman! REAL MEN don’t HIT!”.

Her husband responded, sharing a photo of a couple fighting which he captioned, “say No to the promiscuous and irresponsible women.”

However hours later, he deleted this post, and shared a new photo of himself and Mercy cozied up with the caption “I love my wife so much.”

Meanwhile there are sources alleging that the crisis in their marriage is partly being caused by fellow Nollywood actress identified as Opemititi aka ‘Queen Stunner’, who is alleged to be in an affair with Lanre.

Apparently, both women were close but had a fall out, and now ‘Queen Stunner’ is reportedly closer to Mercy’s husband.

I guess this time we won’t be getting a video….. #Sad.
