The world was shocked with the story of Justin Bieber’s pastor, Carl Lentz, who lost his job at the mega-church, Hillsong NYC, for cheating on his wife.
With the news gaining more attention, the woman, whom the celebrity pastor had the affair with, is now coming out to spill some tea about their entanglement.
The pastor who led Justin Bieber down the path of spirituality, apparently had the affair with a Muslim woman named Ranin. She recalled that when they first met, Carl kept his last name a secret while allegedly lying about his profession, stating that he was a sports agent.
The 34-year-old designer from New York was reported to be in a secret relationship with Carl for around 5 months. While telling her story, Ranin revealed that the horrid affair wasn’t just for sex, but deeper than that.
The New Yorker explained, “I wasn’t there for just sex, we both found comfort and a deep, special connection with each other. I am very hurt because we both feel the same way about each other. He loves me and I love him. It was a love relationship that wasn’t planned. It wasn’t just a fling or just a sexual relationship.”
They first met in May at Domino Park in Brooklyn, when the pastor, who attended Justin Bieber’s wedding, approached her to start a conversation but she had no clue about who he was. She said, “I have no knowledge of the Christian world, I’m a Muslim. He told me the most beautiful women come from the Middle East and we kept talking from there.”
“We walked and talked more for a little bit and exchanged numbers. He told me his name was Carl but that’s it, he wouldn’t tell me his last name. And he told me that his job was as a sports agent,” she added. That’s not all, Carl didn’t mention he was married and he wasn’t even wearing his wedding ring at the time.
Very fishy indeed.
Ranin only found out about it when she asked him after a few dates in, where the celebrity pastor admitted to being married for 17 years and has three kids. She recalled calling out Carl about his infidelity, “He said he had absolutely never strayed outside of his marriage before and was feeling guilty. But he told me that when he met me, God told him to tell me that I need to know my worth and there’s something special about me… whatever, whatever.”
Nevertheless, the pair continued to see each each other while engaging in intimate activities, and whenever she tried to push him away, he kept coming back for her. The ill-fated relationship finally ended when Carl’s wife saw all their messages including some naughty photos which led to the pastor losing his high-profile job.
After the church fired him, he insisted on meeting Ranin at her place to say his goodbyes, where she claimed they got intimate once again. The designer added she never officially said goodbye to Carl until last Thursday (5th November).
Besides Justin Bieber, Carl Lentz is also well-known amongst several high-profile celebrities such as Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner, Kevin Durant, and Oprah Winfrey, to name a few.
