Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe and her husband, Kazim Adeoti popularly known as Adekaz, have dispelled claims that they were friends with each other’s ex-partners before they became an item.

It can be recalled that the couple made their marriage public on Sunday, January 23, and shortly after a photo of them posing with Mercy’s ex-husband, Lanre Gentry, and Adekaz’s estranged wife, Funsho Adeoti, surfaced online.

Gentry reposted the picture on his Instagram page with a suggestive caption. He wrote, “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 raised speculations that both couples were friends, and Mercy was bashed on social media for allegedly snatching her friends’ husband.

However, the couple have not debunked the claims through a source close to them.

According to the source, Kazim Adeoti and Lanre Gentry were never friends, and only met at Kazim’s 40th birthday party 10 years ago.

Mercy was invited to the party alongside others in the Yoruba movie industry, and took her husband at the time, Lanre Gentry, along.

They were said to have posed together for the photograph which is currently circulating online. The source also shared pictures Adekaz and his estranged wife took with other Yoruba celebrities at the party.
