Justin Bieber’s pastor Carl Lentz and his wife Laura ‘will NOT divorce’ after he cheated as family quietly ‘moves to LA’ – The Sun11/16/2020
JUSTIN Bieber's pastor and mentor, Carl Lentz, and his wife, Laura, will not be divorcing after he cheated on her, The Sun can exclusively report.
An insider exclusively told The Sun that Carl and Laura are determined to make things work, and have moved to LA with their three children.
Carl, 42, and Laura were both fired from Hillsong after it emerged that he was unfaithful to Laura, whom he's been married to for 17 years.
Sources told The sun that since they are both unemployed, they plan to "start fresh" in LA.
“Carl and Laura are in Los Angeles with their kids. They were on the east coast together up until last week, and moved to LA a few days ago," a source close to Carl said.
"They are planning to start fresh in LA after the humiliation of his cheating became public."
The insider continued: "As of right now, they’re hoping to make the move permanent as neither of them have a job to go back to in New York and they recently sold their New Jersey house.
"They’re both struggling, but divorce is the last thing either of them want for their family, so they’re doing everything they can to make sure it doesn’t result in that."
The source added that despite being fired by Hillsong, they still want to abide by the mega-church's strict rules.
"Even though they’re not a part of the church anymore, it’s frowned upon for leaders to divorce, even with infidelity, so they feel extra pressure to try and make it work," the insider said.
The Sun has contacted Carl's rep for comment.
Carl – who was Justin Bieber's closest friend for years – was a Lead Pastor at Hillsong's NYC church.
They met at Hillsong College, a school affiliated with the international organization, and have three children – Ava, 16, Charlie, 14, and Roman, 11.
Earlier this month, The Sun exclusively spoke to Ranin, a 34-year-old designer from New York City, who opened up about dating the married church leader for over five months before their emotional breakup just days
She explained that the pair met in May at Domino Park in Brooklyn, New York, when he approached her to flirt and make small talk.
However, she claimed Carl lied about his true identity and told her he was an unmarried sports agent.
Their relationship took an explosive turn after she claimed Carl’s wife saw all of their messages – including "naughty photos" – which were connected to his work computer at the church office while several other co-workers were also present.
Carl has issued a public apology to Laura and his followers for being "unfaithful" since the scandal broke.
"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," he said.
"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."
Just one day after he was fired from Hillsong, the couple were spotted having a tense conversation outside of Justin's apartment.
Since Carl's infidelity was exposed, both Justin and Hailey have unfollowed him on Instagram.
A source told The Sun that the couple was "shocked" and "furious" with his behavior, and "cut him off."
Justin and Hailey were just two of Carl's famous friends, as Drake, Oprah Winfrey, Kourtney Kardashian, and more celebrities were also part of his inner circle.
