Ever since Lakewood pastor John Gray gifted his wife a $ 200,000 Lamborghini truck to celebrate their marriage vow renewal and anniversary, he’s been catching heat for it all over social media. Now he’s fighting back.

In an Instagram video taken at the celebration Sunday, Gray, now the pastor at Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina, led his wife to a bow-wrapped car and handed her the keys while saying “Lamborghini Urus.”

He wrote on Instagram Tuesday, “God helped me to make my wife’s dream come true. Why not? She’s made mine come true!” On Thursday in a Facebook Live video, Gray stated that vehicle was purchased with “not a nickel, not a penny” of his salary from the church or other church money.

He said he saved money for years and drew on a variety of sources financially including his second book deal and the fourth season of The Book Of John Gray, his television show on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network to pay for the vehicle. He also shared the story of how on his honeymoon eight years ago, he and his wife Aventer were so broke that they had to share a shrimp cocktail.

Aventer defended her husband on Sunday on Instagram saying, “I don’t see anyone screaming about how basketball players drive what they do while you paying $ $ $ to see them play in arenas and on fields. We don’t live for people! We love for God!”

She added, “[He] gives away cars, full houses of furniture, clothes off his back!”

Gregg Leakes Defends ‘Overwhelmed’ Wife Nene After Her Comments About Him

(Photo Credit:  PR Photos)

Gregg Leakes is not here for online trolls coming for his “overwhelmed” wife, which is why he’s defending NeNe against critics who slammed her after she blasted her cancer-stricken husband on social media for being “Mean, Grouchy,” and “Evil”.

After the public backlash against NeNe for her insensitive comments, Gregg took to social media to praise his wife, saying “She’s given so much of herself.” He added that NeNe always “steps up to the plate. Something a lot of women can’t do or wouldn’t.”

Gregg wrote:

“I never even [thought] about someday we might be in this position but here we are in the struggle of life Damn! This woman right here has put a mountain on her back and carried it with grace. She’s given so much of herself. You Nene, steps up to the plate, bats and knock it out the park every time. Something a lot of women can’t do or wouldn’t. So what she hit a wall and her cup run over! Pray for her, encourage her, lift her up. What good is tearing down gonna do? I’m not bed stricken and i’m not dying of cancer! I’m kicking cancers ass”.

As we previously reported, Mr. Leakes took to Instagram last week to share an inspirational message about love, forgiveness and not being so quick to react out in anger.

In a since-deleted comment, NeNe slammed her husband for not following his own advice.

“Well u need to do everything you posted! Practice what you preach,” she replied, later adding: “You need to pray for yourself! This mean, grouchy, evil stuff u pulling these days are NOT cool.”

After a user called her a “cool piece of work” and noted the “tables can easily turn,” Leakes clapped back.

“Chileeee shut up!” she wrote in response. “Gregg has done so much s—. It didn’t just start! While u commenting saying s– to me, ask him what has he done! Oh, and by the way, Gregg isn’t bed stricken and needing daily help! You got it twisted.”

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star then noted her frustrations on Twitter, writing “I would just think if I have or had cancer, I would see life so differently! Not be mean, grouchy and evil for no real reason! But that’s me. Pray for me.”

But when a follower replied, “Unfortunately the closest person receives the undeserved lashing out, stay strong Sis… just breathe,” Leakes responded, “Naw I don’t think I can do it.”

She also fired back at another social media user who called her “so evil” and told her to “go to hell.”

“You don’t know S–T about Gregg and NeNe Leakes and you have no idea what he has done!” Leakes replied. “Ask him [a–hole].”

(PR Photos)

Bobby Brown’s outspoken sister Leolah Brown Muhammad is back at spilling the family tea…  and this time she claims her brother doesn’t own the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity House, a shelter for domestic abuse victims located in Mableton, Georgia.

Leolah took to Facebook to reveal that Bobby’s wife and manager Alicia Etheredge Brown owns the non-profit organization. She also accused Alicia and her sister-in-law Pat Houston of conspiring to murder Bobbi Kristina — who was pronounced dead in July 2015 at age 22 after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her townhouse six months earlier.

Read Leolah’s Facebook post below.

“Listen FB, I’m going to be completely honest wit you. My brother Bobby doesn’t even OWN his daughter BOBBI Kristina’s Serenity House!

As noted by theJasminebrand, Muhammad wants inquiring minds to stay tuned because she plans to tell-all about Whitney’s true cause of death… murder.

…And Alicia is literally the whole dam reason my niece could never even spend 2 minutes with her father after her mother was murdered! I don’t know what’s wrong with my brother! They got him SO MESSED UP! Man they came straight in my family with all this conquer & divide madness.. But y’all just hold on I had a big meeting tonight… We just got done..

Gary Lucy splits from wife

OHMYGOSSIP — Gary Lucy has split from his wife.
The ‘Hollyoaks’ actress is said to be devastated after he and wife Natasha – who would have celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary later this month – went their separate ways, amid accusations she had grown tired of his wild partying and he ignored a warning she gave last September to change his behaviour.
But the former couple – who have children India, 13, Elvis, seven, and three-year-old Sadie together – insist the “difficult decision” to separate was made “mutually and amicably”.
They told The Sun newspaper in a statement: It is with great sadness that we announce the end of our marriage.
“This was a very difficult decision, but was reached mutually and amicably. No other parties are involved.
“Our priority is, as always, our children. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision, just two best friends realising it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible. We are still a family and will always be loving, dedicated parents.”
Gary and beauty therapist Natasha had been together since 2004, tying the knot in a star-studded ceremony 10 years later.
The former couple previously admitted their third child was a “surprise” and felt like the “best wedding presenter” ever.
Natasha said shortly before Sadie’s birth: “It was actually a bit of a surprise because although we’ve discussed having more children, it wasn’t exactly planned.
“But it’s like something’s been gifted to us – it’s the best wedding present ever. It’s like it was meant to be.”
But although their daughter wasn’t planned, the couple confessed at the time they’d like one more child to complete their brood.
Natasha added: “Two boys and two girls would be perfect, especially for Elvis to have another boy around when he’s a bit older.”

Chris Stapleton’s Wife Pregnant With Fifth Child, Seven Months After Welcoming Twins

Country star Chris Stapleton announced during a concert on Friday, November 2, that he and wife Morgane are expecting their fifth child, seven months after welcoming twins.

“I’ve got an announcement to make. Some of you may know that we have four children,” the “Tennessee Whiskey” singer, 40, told the audience at Madison Square Garden in NYC on Friday, according to a video posted by The Blast. “We just had twins, about seven months ago. Now there’s four of us, but we’re gonna make it five!”

Morgane, who was onstage with her husband, smiled happily at her husband after his speech.

As previously reported, the couple welcomed their twin boys in March and the singer was unable to attend the Academy of Country Music Awards to accept his Album of the Year award the following month because of the babies’ early arrival.

“Chris couldn’t be here cause Morgane’s expecting twins,” the show’s host, Reba McEntire, said as she accepted Stapleton’s award in his absence. “We just found out that those little rascals came a little bit early. Hot off the press! Twin boys.”

The couple, who recently celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary, are also parents of a girl, 8, and boy, 6.

The private pair, who haven’t publicly announced their kids’ names, shared a photo of their twins in a post on Morgane’s Instagram account in April that showed the mom cradling her newborn babies.

“We’re so grateful to finally be home with our sweet family,” she wrote on April 18. “We would like to say a special thank you to all the incredible nurses & doctors at Centennial Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Nashville. At more than a month early, we had a week long stay in the nicu & the incredible people there kept our boys healthy & happy. Words cannot express our gratitude for you all & what you did for our family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!”

Seann Walsh seen out for the first time since awkward run in with Neil Jones who banned wife Katya from speaking to him

SEANN Walsh was seen for the first time since his awkward run in with Neil Jones at a red carpet bash on Monday night.

The Strictly star, who was caught snogging Neil’s wife Katya earlier this month, headed out alone near his west London pad today – after The Sun revealed Neil had banned his spouse from speaking to him.

The comedian, 32, was all smiles as he enjoyed some downtime and grabbed a coffee.

After refuelling, Seann – who was booted out of Strictly on Sunday night – whizzed off on his bike.

The outing came after we revealed tensions were running high between Seann and Strictly pro Neil at the Pride of Britain awards earlier this week.

The dancer, 35, is still hurting from wife Katya’s betrayal after she was pictured kissing Seann during a night out at a London pub earlier this month.

Seann even took his bike for a spin

And taking a stand, Neil blocked his dancer spouse from speaking to love rival Seann at the bash on Monday, telling her: “We’re not on Strictly now, don’t you dare.”

A source said: “Neil and Katya were half way up the carpet when Seann arrived.

“Katya said she was going to say hello but Neil held her back and told her ‘We’re not on Strictly now, don’t you dare’.

“An organiser foresaw a potential bust-up so held Seann back to ensure they were kept apart.

“Neil is still clearly very unhappy with Seann, but Katya clearly doesn’t want to cut ties.”

Seann clearly didn’t let the snub ruin his night as he was later seen enjoying the attention of fans on the red carpet and waitresses inside the venue.
