After keeping mum on the domestic violence allegations made against her husband, actress Mercy Aigbe has finally confirmed the reports.

The actress took to Instagram on Friday morning to deny recent claims of mental instability made against her by estranged husband Lanre Gentry.

Aigbe said that she endured “beating and harassment” from Gentry for several years and threatened to sue him for making false claims against her.

She wrote: “Dear Lanre Gentry, It breaks my heart that I have to do this but as it is you have left me with no choice. I had sleepless nights because I just couldn’t comprehend why someone I loved, someone with whom I have a child will be hell bent on destroying me, I just cannot comprehend it.

“I read with tears in my eyes all the LIES you fabricated against me, LIES you feel will justify your inhumane act, LIES you feel will gain you public sympathy and LIES calculated to bring my person to public opprobrium.”
