The estranged husband of popular actress, Mercy Aigbe, Lanre Gentry, has claimed that she has returned to his house in an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop. Gentry stated that all the issues between him and his wife had been sorted out.
Recall that the couple fell out in 2017 after Mercy alleged that Gentry usually assaulted and battered her. She moved out of his house and the Lagos State Department of Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team got involved in the case.
However, Gentry insisted that all those were now in the past because the couple has settled all differences outside the courtroom. In his words;
We are not in court and we don’t have any issues (again).
She is my wife and the court case is over. She is back to my house.
On lessons learnt from the marital drama, Gentry said;
There is no special lesson to be learnt anywhere. Women are usually misled by their friends.
When a woman is in the midst of her friends, many things happen.
However, when they realise that they have done something wrong, then they are good to go. We give thanks to God.
He further added that he does not belong to the class of men who were threatened by the successes of their wives because men with successful wives usually benefit from her growth. He said;
My advice to everybody is that they should be tolerant. If couples tolerate each other, the most important thing has been done.
Also, let your partner have his or her way; though not every time but as much as possible.
When you allow your wife to have her space and time, you would have a better relationship.
Things are not always done by shouting and force. Women have families to cater for, so they should be allowed to go out, so they can have something to handle their responsibilities.
that is how I have been managing my wives because I was married to someone else before I wedded Mercy.
If you are not tolerant of women, there is no way you can manage them. Once you are not someone who always wants to have his way, it is easy to manage women.
I am very tolerant with my wife and I always support with prayers for all her endeavours.
It is also very important, to be honest. If you are honest, there is nothing that can separate you.
New couples should always pray for themselves and allow their spouses to grow.
As a man, if your wife is successful, you would benefit from her growth
Reacting to the claims made in the interview, Mercy Aigbe accused her estranged husband of seeking attention and further stated that she is currently staying in her own house. In her words;
What is wrong with Baba Juwon? And why are people still calling him to ask unnecessary questions? He just wants publicity.
I stay in my own house.
