Televangelist and gospel recording artist Juanita Bynum has confessed to having had sexual relationships with women in a radio interview. She told listeners that, “I’ve been there and I’ve done it all. I did the drugs, I’ve been with men, I’ve been with women. All of it.”
When the radio host, who seemed incredulous of Bynum’s confession, again posed the question about her past preference for women, the powerhouse speaker replied, “It’s not a line, it’s my life!”
The spiritual prophetess made headlines back in 2007 when her then-husband, Bishop Thomas Weeks III, kicked, choked and stomped her in a hotel parking lot. The couple had been married for five years.
Weeks tried to flip the beating around, stating that Bynum attacked him. Weeks eventually pleaded guilty to a single count of aggravated assault. He was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and agree to violence and anger counseling. The couple divorced in 2008. The details of their separation were famously aired on “Divorce Court.”
The “No More Sheets” author, who is known for being a dynamo on the mic and keeping it real by coming clean with her life choices, encouraged the program’s listeners to take ownership of their actions as she has done in her life.
“I took full responsibility in every area because every choice that I made, nobody put a gun to my head, she said. “These were my choices and I made these choices due to a lack of wisdom.”
