Pastor John Gray recently received a social media tongue lashing for purchasing his wife Aventer Gray$200,000 Lamborghini for their eighth wedding anniversary, and now he’s surrounded in even more controversy.

Not too long ago, the pastor admitted to his congregation at Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C. that he had an affair. Aventer was right next to him, and the couple said they were extremely close to getting a divorce.

“We had to keep smiling because even though we were struggling, even though I was failing as a husband, I was already in front of the people, and the people can’t really receive my brokenness, because where do leaders go when they bleed?” John told the congregation. “So I had to bleed alone.”

“And what’s strange is I traveled the whole world and the Holy Ghost showed up and people got saved and me and my wife just kept smiling and nobody knew we were getting ready to get a divorce,” he added. “Because as long as I kept producing, nobody cared what was happening at home. I started listening to the wrong voices and let some people get too close. She found out, and she set it off, just like a good wife should.”

“Was I upset? Yes. Was I heartbroken? Yes,” Aventer continued. “But you better learn how to get in there for the — what’s the vows? — better and worst so when the worst shows up you don’t run away.”

So now people are connecting the affair with the purchased Lamborghini. At first, John responded to those who said that a pastor nor his wife should own something so pricey. He was also accused of using some of the church funds to buy the vehicle, which he denied. His wife also came to his defense.

John said the money came from his book deals, as well as his OWN reality show and now folks are saying the luxury car was a makeup gift for the affair.

Reportedly, John was grateful that his wife kept silent about the affair and didn’t try to take down his ministry. While rumors have spread that the mistress is allegedly pregnant, there’s no confirmation if she is actually with child or not.
