Mercy Aigbe and her husband Kazim “Adekaz” Adeoti have disputed claims that Mercy’s ex-husband Lanre Gentry was friends with her current husband while Mercy was also friends with Adekaz’s estranged wife Funsho Adeoti.
Mercy made her relationship with movie marketer Adekaz public on Jan. 23 and her ex-husband Lanre Gentry, who has already remarried, took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of him and Mercy as a married couple posing with Kazim “Adekaz” Adeoti and his estranged wife Funsho Adeoti.
Lanre added in the caption: “At last I thank God the truth is out this is just one out of many to God be the glory. I don’t need anyone’s comment please.”
This led the public to conclude that both couples were friends, and Mercy was called out for “snatching” a married man who is friends with her ex-husband.
Adekaz and Mercy have now said the story making the rounds is far from the truth.
Kazim Adeoti and Lanre Gentry were never friends. They only met at Kazim’s 40th birthday party 9 years ago, a source close to the couple told OsmekNews
Mercy was invited to Kazim’s birthday party alongside others in the Yoruba movie industry, so she took Lanre Gentry, who was her husband at the time, along.
Mercy was also never friends with Kazim Adeoti’s estranged wife, Funsho Adeoti, the same source said
Mercy and Lanre simply posed for photos with Kazim and Funsho the same way other guests posed with the couple at the party.
It was only after Mercy and Lanre Gentry had gone their separate ways that she and Kazim became an item years later. Kazim Adeoti and Funsho Adeoti have also been separated for a while and Mercy reportedly had no hand in their separation, the source concluded.
