Lanre Gentry, the ex-husband of actress Mercy Aigbe, has said he blames Funsho Asiwaju, the estranged wife of Kazim Adeoti, for the crisis in her marriage.
In an interview with Punch published on Saturday, Mr Gentry said he blames Funsho for bringing Mercy into her home
According to him, “It is dangerous to bring a person whom you do not know into your home simply because the person is a celebrity.”
“I do not blame Mercy. The blame should be on Adeoti’s first wife for bringing Mercy into her family. People like Funso who love to follow actresses (about) in a bid to make friends with them need to be very careful. It is dangerous to bring a person whom you do not know into your home simply because the person is a celebrity. In all honesty, Funso and Mercy were friends,” he said.
“She was the one who invited Mercy and I to her husband’s 40th birthday celebration some years back. Mercy Aigbe knows within herself that what she did to Funso and her family is very bad.
“It was Mercy that told me her friend was organizing a surprise birthday for her husband and we were invited. Unlike what many are saying, my son, Olanrewaju, was not five months old at the time, he was over a year old. We attended the event, and that was the first time I met Adeoti and his wife. Funso, who was Mercy’s friend at the time, introduced Adeoti to Mercy and I,” he added.
Speaking on his new marriage, Gentry said, “I said I was going to get married last year and I did. We did our traditional and court wedding on September 11, 2021. We now have a baby girl and she looks very much like Olajuwon, whom some have claimed may not be my biological son. A man who was sneaking to have sexual intercourse with another man’s wife cannot have the guts to request for a DNA test. Children born in my family have a certain birthmark, and Juwon and my daughter have it.”
