He rose to fame as one of the pastor BFFS to Justin Bieber.
Sadly, that fame could have possibly played a part in Carl Lentz’s personal life, as the popular Hillsong Pastor admitted he cheated on wife Laura, who he’s been married to for 17 years.
The news was first reported by ReligionNews.com, who obtained an email sent by Hillsong lead pastor Brian Houston to staff at Hillsong NY.
Carl was reportedly fired for “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”
On Thursday, November 5, just one day following the revelation, Carl opened up about his situation, confessing that he “was unfaithful in my marriage.”
