Although we are not very sure of what exactly is happening with star actress, Mercy Aigbe’s marriage, her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry wished her a happy birthday via his Instagram handle.
He said in the post,
“Today, you are @40. Even though we are fighting I still say happy birthday to you because you are still my wife and my children mother as I use to call you ones again happy birthday to you Mercy Aigbe Gentry. Long life and God bless you (sic).”
Some of the fans of the actress started speculating that the couple could get back together this year. Days later the actress further fueled the speculations by following him on Instagram again. But Lanre was absent at the actress’ wedding.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Lanre Gentry talked about why he was absent at his wife’s 40th birthday party.
“The main reason I was not at her birthday party was that I was not in Nigeria on that day. I travelled to Dubai and I returned on Wednesday. Despite the fact that I was not in the country, I bought her a birthday cake and other gifts I would not want to mention because it is an issue between husband and wife,” .
While reacting to the news that his wife has started following him on Instagram again, Lanre claimed that he did not know when she unfollowed him on the instagram in the first place on account of his numerous followers. He also insisted that he had no problem with his wife.
“Mercy and I are not fighting. We talk every day. I know that in the birthday wish I sent to her via Instagram, I wrote that we are still fighting but what I actually meant was not a real fight but the normal lovers’ quarrel. I am a very peaceful person and I don’t like fighting, most times, I compare myself to water which has no enemy.
“Mercy follows me on Instagram, so, I was surprised that the news went round that she is following me again. If she had ‘unfollowed’ me before, there was no way I would have noticed because I have a lot of followers on Instagram.”
