Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has disclosed what transpired in the viral video where she had a public fight with a Lagos businesswoman Omolara Olukotun also known as Larrit.
In a post shared on her Instagram story on Monday, the actress revealed that Larrit was an acquaintance that made herself an enemy.
Mercy Aigbe disclosed that Lara has been bullying her for months on social media, despite patronising each others business in the past.
The 44-year-old actress revealed that they met at a friend’s store opening event before she suddenly started throwing jabs at her and calling her disrespectful names.
“Initially, I kept calm and didn’t respond to her. People around her appealed to her to stop, yet Lara wouldn’t stop and so decided to stand up for herself and I retaliated with the same energy,” Mercy Aigbe wrote.
“It became heated and everyone around tried to broker peace, but she still wouldn’t stop. At some point, she tried to throw a bottle at me but it hit a lady sitting in front of her and there was pandemonium.
“I stepped out to leave in the middle of the brouhaha but my friend pleaded with me to stay including the celebrant. I went back in and she started attacking me verbally again. Eventually, she was taken out of the party, and she left,” she concluded.
The mother of two further apologised to her fans and families who thought she could have handled it differently.
