Mercy Aigbe’s ex-husband Lanre Gentry has come out to counter the claim of the actress that she was never friends with the first wife of Kazim Adeoti Oluwafunsho. The businessman in a new interview with The Punch Newspaper said Funsho is to be blamed for how Mercy snatched her husband.
He explained that the woman was obsessed with the idea of being friends with a celebrity and women like her should be very careful. He shared that it is dangerous to bring a person whom you do not know into your home simply because the person is a celebrity. Lanre claimed that Funso and Mercy were friends and she was the one who invited Mercy and him to her husband’s 40th birthday celebration some years back.
He further addressed Funsho’s claim that Mercy was sleeping with her husband frim when her son Juwon was 5 months old. He said their son was a year old and he was very aware his wife was having an affair.

“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. She (Funso) 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. After that, Adeoti used to come to my home, office, and hotel. Mercy later told me they were working together and that he was her marketer. I was 100 percent sure that Mercy and Adeoti were seeing (dating) each other, and I used to tell her that what she was doing was very bad.
I am a socialite, and I definitely know when something (intimate) is going on between a man and a woman. I really don’t want to be involved in this issue because I have remarried, and I respect my (new) wife. People should learn to handle their homes properly and stay away from strange friends.”
