I play the role of father and mother- Mercy Aigbe declares on Mother’s Day
Sensational actress, Mercy Aigbe has stated that she plays the role of both mother and father to her children.
TheNewsGuru recalls that Mercy Aigbe’s marriage to Lanre Gentry hit the rocks after she revealed that she endured “beating and harassment” from Gentry for several years.
Back in May 2017, Aigbe wrote on Instagram:
“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.”
Though the actress seems to have moved on two years later, she rained praises on herself for playing a dual role in the lives of her children.
To commemorate the International Mother’s Day today, she acknowledged her hard work as a mother on Instagram.
According to her: “It’s takes only a Bad Ass Mom to be both Father and Mother 👊👊👊 Almost 18 years now and it has been nothing but God’s amazing grace!… I miss you”
