At last! Mercy Aigbe Speaks on birthday dress controversy

Screen diva, Mercy Aigbe was recently enmeshed in a controversy sparked by a red dress she had on for a photo shoot on her 40th birthday.
An unknown bride had claimed that the dress was originally designed for her, but was surprised when she saw the thespian adorning it, while she got a replacement.
Mercy wrote in her defense:

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. Thanks.
