Carl Lentz sells his $1.5m New Jersey home before cheating on wife as Justin Bieber ‘cuts ties’ with celeb pastor
CARL Lentz sold his $1.5million New Jersey home before cheating on his wife as Justin Bieber “cuts ties” with the celebrity pastor.
The 41-year-old was recently fired from his position at Hillsong Church following his admission of infidelity on his wife, Laura.
Just days before it was revealed that the famous pastor had not remained faithful, he sold his home located in Montclair for $1.5million, according to the NY Post.
The impressive looking house includes four bedrooms and bathrooms, a two-car garage, and a fireplace.
The property, which comes in at 11,800-square-feet, was bought by Carl in 2017 for $1.2million.
This was all before Carl issued a lengthy statement that explained he was guilty of “moral failure” after losing his position within the megachurch.
He went on to apologize to Laura, his family and members of Hillsong Church.
He wrote: “I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life and held accountable for that. This failure is on me, and me alone and I take full responsibility for my actions.
“I now begin a journey of rebuilding trust with my wife, Laura and my children and taking real time to work on and heal my own life and seek out the help that I need.”
He added: “I am deeply sorry for breaking the trust of many people who we have loved serving and understand that this news can be very hard and confusing for people to hear and process.”
The pair tied the knot in 2003 and share three kids.
A short time later, the Sun exclusively revealed that Carl’s wife was also fired from the church.
Global lead pastor Brian Houston addressed all the rumors following the aftermath of Carl’s termination, exclusively telling The Sun: “This is a season of transition. It’s a time when I’m so grateful for the team we have there, we’ve got such strong, committed and deeply loyal people who are part of the team.”
He added: “It’s always a time when there is speculation, rumor and gossip when change is made, and especially when radical change is made. But I just want to encourage you … stay close to Jesus, keep him your focus…”
Brian, 66, has now launched an investigation into the church following the scandal.
