Pastor John Gray’s Alleged Mistress Says They Had More Than An ‘Emotional’ Affair

Pastor John Gray and his wife Aventer made headlines when it was revealed their seemingly happy marriage was tainted with infidelity. While Pastor Gray assured fans it was only an “emotional” affair, recently discovered audio recordings paint a different picture.

A woman, who remains anonymous, says she and Gray had a physical relationship during an interview with Larry Reid, She says Gray once booked her a room in the same hotel as his wife, but Aventer found out. He left the woman a voicemail warning her that venter had read their text messages. The mystery woman says that she and Gray had Facetime sex, where he would speak in tongues after climaxing. And yes, they two had sex.

She told Reid that she and Gray had been friends for years, but things changed after the woman went through a domestic violence incident that left her vulnerable.

“It started with him—he likes to say—breathing life into me. So he was just there as far as talking to me, pretty much pastoring me, ministering to me. And I called on him to do a favor to a person that I knew that was struggling with some addiction issues. And so I called upon him to help with that. It was an employee of mine. That employee actually wound up speaking with him and it got him on the straight and narrow. So I sent him a text message telling him thank you. And he said, ‘Whatever you need.’ And I was like ‘Well thank you.’ And he said, ‘I’m talking about you.’

John Gray allegedly also offered her financial help when she fell on hard times.

“He would say, ‘The Lord told me that you need some money so go ahead and check your cash app. I already put money in your account.”

He also allegedly confided in her about his marriage and claimed Aventer didn’t satisfy him.

“I ran into an issue financially and he was just like absolutely. and it was a big deal. It was a really big thing. From that moment on, it started from there. It snowballed into ‘I just love you so much. I always loved you. I always thought about you. I always cared about you,’ the woman shared.

“Then he was going through the stuff with his wife and he was saying how he didn’t like her, didn’t love her, that he was never attracted to her, that he only married her because she looked good on paper.”

The woman also had voicemails of what seemed to be John Gray’s voice.

“When you get this message, delete it. My wife saw our text messages from Friday. She knows you were in the same hotel as me and she does not know that I went to your room. She doesn’t remember me leaving. She’s got your number,” he said.

Gray told the public he was only guilty of being  “inappropriate” because he carried on an “emotional” affair. Clearly there’s more to the story.

Listen to her story, below.

Tamera Mowry-Housley Says She’s Done Having Kids, So Stop Asking Her If She’s Pregnant [WATCH]

Tamera Mowry-Housley decided to address the rumors that she might be having another baby.Via Madamenoire:

Earlier this week, a supposed fan took to social media to let the star know that based on a clip from The Real, she looked like she is expecting baby number three.

“Tamera I’ve been watching you and as of today I’m sure you [sic] pregnant,” the person wrote.

“Omg. You look pregnant, too!” Tamera replied. “Hate to break it to you. I’m not.”

Tamera actually announced that decision on Thursday’s episode of The Real, and her reasoning was very honest and commendable. According to her, she wouldn’t be able to be the best mother to the two kids she already has if she were to bring a third into the picture.

“It took me a while to get to this place, but I had once said that I wasn’t done having kids. That I might be open to adopt or anything like that. But I have to say, now, I’m done. I think I’m done,” she said.

“There’s always a part of you, as a mom…you’re like thinking, ‘Wonder what the third one is going to look like,’ or whatever,” she continued. “But now that my kids are older, I’m in the nitty-gritty. It’s called parenting. So I have two souls looking at me and I want to make sure I give them all my attention.”

“I know that I can only be the best wife and the best parent with two. So guys I’m not pregnant!” she added. “I’m not going to be pregnant in the future, so if you see a little hump, I’m just fat that day. It’s done! It’s official.”

It’s true. Tamera had said on multiple occasions after having daughter Ariah that she was open to the idea of welcoming another child into her home, even via adoption. But as she shared, she’s had a change of heart.

On the upside, she’ll have more wealth to spread to both Aden and Ariah when they’re 35 if she does indeed stop now. In case you forgot, earlier this month she stated that she was going to encourage her kids to make their own money, just as she has done, despite the fact that she and Adam have a lot of it.

“My kids, if I’m honest, they are born with money,” she said on The Real. “My husband’s side of the family, they’re going to give money to my kids and I have money I’m going to give to my kids. However, they can’t touch that money until they’re 35. That’s our rule because I want to teach them, don’t depend on me, boo. You need to learn how to make money on your own.”

The Game Calls Tomi Lahren a ‘Racist Slut’ After She Defends Herself Over High School Pic

1f440.png


The Game went off on Tomi Lahren and called her names like a “racist slut” after the conservative TV show host called him “vile” for making fun of her looks.

After the rapper appeared on “The Real” and discussed their beef, Lahren wrote an article defending herself and her physical looks. Game has been trolling her extensively on Instagram with a photo of Lahren from her younger days and claiming she has had extensive work done on her face.

Following several online attacks by The Game, the conservative host clapped back and said, “I don’t do what I do for your approval or praise. I do it for the millions of young girls (on both sides of the political spectrum) who deserve to see a woman like me stand up for herself and not take shit from jerks like you.”

View this post on Instagram

Hey @losangelesconfidential here you go. This is for you. On the left is an unflattering high school photo of me. On the right is me now. Same big forehead, same ears that kinda stick out, same eyebrows, same Tomi. The difference? Tomi today has the guts and the confidence to post that high school photo you mocked. Because guess what, I don’t do what I do for your approval or praise. I do it for the millions of young girls (on both sides of the political spectrum) who deserve to see a woman like me stand up for herself and not take shit from jerks like you. And ladies, I hope you see this and know that beauty isn’t about your hair, makeup, eyebrows, weight, or any of it. Beauty radiates when you have the confidence to stand up for and love yourself regardless of who tries to pull you down. So yeah Game, you can make fun of me and demean me but end of the day, you’re just a classless rapper who degrades women for attention. I win. Game over. #TeamTomi #stillconfident #neverplaydead

A post shared by Tomi Lahren (@tomilahren) on Mar 20, 2019 at 8:20am PDT

The Game’s response was long, and in it he claims she “sucked & swallowed her way into her job & position only to misuse your platform & degrade the very culture you you praised so much before your mediocre rise to media fame.” The Game also said Lahren is “a closet racist & the exact opposite of the role model for young girls of any color.”

The rapper ended his rant by writing, “put another quarter in, I’ll be here when you’re ready to play -THE GAME,” which is probably in direct response to Lahren’s article titled, “‘The Game’ is over.”

Ava Duvernay And Oprah To Produce Romance Anthology Series ‘Cherish The Day’ At Own

1f44f-1f3fd.png


Ava DuVernay has landed a second series at Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.

In addition to her series adaptation of the novel “Queen Sugar” for OWN, Variety reports that the award-winning director will also serve viewers an anthology titled “Cherish the Day.”

According to the publication, “the series chronicles the romance of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day. The season-long narrative will unfold to reveal significant moments in a relationship that compel people to hold true to the ones they love, from the extraordinary to the everyday.”

“OWN is home,” DuVernay said. “I’m honored to create television for a network headed by an artist with spectacular vision and unbridled passion for the stories that we want to tell.”

DuVernay will executive produce “Cherish the Day” along with Oprah Winfrey.

“Ava is a visionary storyteller,” said Winfrey. “She brings so much care, so much heart, so much love to the art she creates. I’m excited to continue collaborating together with our very first anthology series for OWN.”

DuVernay recently wrapped production on the upcoming Netflix series “When They See Us,” which tells the true story of the Central Park Five.

“In 1989, five black and brown teen boys were wrongly accused of a crime they did not commit and branded The Central Park Five, a moniker that has followed them since that time,” DuVernay said in a statement. “In 2019, our series gives the five men a platform to finally raise their voices and tell their full stories. In doing so, Korey, Antron, Raymond, Kevin and Yusef also tell the story of many young people of color unjustly ensnared in the criminal justice system.”

“We wanted to reflect this perspective in our title, embracing the humanity of the men and not their politicized moniker,” DuVernay added.

The series is set to star Michael K. Williams, Vera Fermiga and John Leguizamo.

“When They See Us” debuts on Netflix May 31.

“Cherish the Day” is slated to debut in winter 2020.

The fourth season of “Queen Sugar” premieres in June.

Lee Daniels: ‘Empire’ Has Been On A Rollercoaster Since Smollett Incident

1f440.png


LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Empire” co-creator and executive producer Lee Daniels says the weeks since cast member Jussie Smollett was arrested and charged with fabricating a racist and homophobic attack have been “a freakin’ rollercoaster.”

In an Instagram video that doesn’t refer to Smollett by name, Daniels says since “the incident” he and his cast have “experienced pain and anger and sadness and frustration and really don’t know how to deal with it.”

 

 

Daniels had been among the first to voice his support for Smollett after he made the report in January.

Daniels says the situation nearly made him forget to tell audiences that the Fox drama returns to the air Wednesday. Daniels and other producers removed Smollett’s character from the season’s final episodes after his arrest in Chicago.

Smollett has pleaded not guilty.

While Kris Jenner may have thought the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson cheating drama would lead to the 21-year-old’s demise, it looks like it actually had the opposite effect.

According to The Blast, Jordyn’s widely watched sit-down with Jada Pinkett Smith on the Red Table Talk earlier this month has led to her being “flooded with calls from companies who want to get their brands seen with the star.”

Let the gossip site tell it, Jordyn is on her way to London with her and manager and mother Elizabeth Woods at the end of the month to sign “several new deals” that includes her designer line of eyelashes.

In addition, The Blast writes that after her London trip, she’ll head to the Middle East and Dubai to make several appearances and “[lock] up some ‘huge financial deals.”

Jordyn found herself caught in the crosshairs of the Kardashians’ nonsense when rumors swirled last month that she had slept with Tristan Thompson, the baby daddy and ex of her best friend’s sister, Khloe.

Yet, Jordyn was vindicated on the Red Table Talk when she denied any wrongdoing and stressed that while she attended an afterparty at Tristan’s home, she never made a pass at him. In fact, it was Tristan who came on to her by kissing her without her consent.

 

Just think, just a few weeks ago, she feared the powerful reality star family would punish her “professionally, socially and monetarily,” according to TMZ.
