Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, has threatened to seek court intervention in the messy dress scandal that rocked her 40th birthday party.
The glamorous red dress Mercy adorned for the birthday photo shoot generated public interest when a certain bride-to-be cried out that the dress belongs to her and was meant to be worn on her wedding day.
Mercy’s designer, one Seun, was said to have confessed that the dress actually belongs to the accuser and was given to the actress in error.
Meanwhile, the obviously embarrassed Mercy Aigbe has spoken on the matter, almost two weeks after the story went beyond borders.
The actress, in an Instagram post earlier today, 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.
“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.
