Hillsong Pastor and Justin Bieber's One-Time Spiritual Confidant Carl Lentz Fired for 'Moral Failures' https://t.co/Vdzt8iCypx— People (@people) November 5, 2020
• Lentz was known for drawing big names to Hillsong, most notably Justin Bieber. The two seemed to have had a falling out around the time of Bieber’s marriage to fellow Hillsong member, Hailey Baldwin.
• Yesterday Hillsong’s founder announced that they were terminating Lentz’s employment with the church, due to “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”
• The statement also appears to have dismissed Lentz’s wife, Laura (his co-pastor and lifelong Hillsong member), from the church’s employment as well.
• IG gossip account DeuxMoi has posted a few unverified messages that speculate on the “moral failings” alleging that the firing stems from politics and others alleging substance abuse and infidelity.
