Mercy Aigbe Seeks Legal Advise On Controversial 40th Birthday Dress

Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has contacted her lawyer over the controversies surrounding her 40th birthday dress.

An aggrieved bride @rettypety, whose wedding was scheduled for 29th December 2017 had called out her designer, Maryam Elisha (@rikaotobyme) for giving out a gown meant for her wedding to the Nollywood actress for her 40th birthday photos.

She said: :“I have instructed my lawyer to look into this and see how best to approach this from a legal point of view without festering an already open wound.”

The actress in a post via her IG page @realmercy said she had no idea the dress was for a bride as her stylist was responsible for the dress.

She wrote: “I have followed events as they unfold following a particular dress I wore for a photoshoot.

First, I must say that I sincerely sympathise with the bride as this situation is painful, unfortunate and regrettably avoidable.

“I hired and paid Seun @styledbyseun for the photoshoot as a stylist and got four dresses for the shoot. Seun and I were unaware that one of the dresses was meant for someone else. I am embarrassed that the designer was not professional enough in handling events leading to this moment.

It is also painful that a bride is made to go through what the bride has been made to go through.

“I have reached out to both the stylist and designer (whom I have never met nor HIRED directly) to express my displeasure.
