Bishop Thomas Weeks releasing tell all book online

Posted by Media Outrage on February 27, 2008

Bishop Thomas Weeks and Juanita Bynum

Bishop Thomas  Stomp A Nucca down to the white meat  Weeks’s PR firm XXPosure has decided to release his tell all book about his turbulent marriage to Prophetess Juanita Bynum entitled “What Love Taught Me”.

Via eurweb:

According to Weeks, as previously reported in an exclusive interview with EUR’s Lee Bailey, “… Juanita said when she heard about the book she felt like someone had hit her over the head with a bat.  It was a very dramatized statement, but I heard it and felt it from a husband’s perspective.”  Weeks seemed to still have a heartfelt emotional attachment to his estranged wife.

      He held back, but there was a caveat to that choice: XXposure had the right to release the book “if the drama continues.” Bynum has been a consistent no show to appointments, an AP article states, which is holding up legal proceedings in the case. Bynum’s absences were apparently enough agitation to cause Weeks’ representatives to re-issue the book.

      Angelo Ellerbe, head of the New York based firm exclaims, “The truth is no longer on strike and Bishop Weeks has been silent far too long. The book speaks the truth — no more drama, no more tears, no more lies. Enough of this ‘confusement’ park! This book must be released!”

      “The Cover of What Love Taught Me” depicts a photo of the now forlorn lovers dancing at their wedding with a rip between them, a metaphor for the permanent erosion of their relationship.

Mediaoutrage– Well at least it wasn’t him who gave the greenlight to release it.

Juanita Bynum responds to Bishop Weeks statements.

Posted by Media Outrage on November 24, 2007

Juanita Bynum

I know what happened that night. I was there … and those marks are not from me,” Weeks asserts.

This is what Juanita Bynum had to say in response to statements that her estranged husband Bishop Thomas Weeks had to say in regards to Juanita Bynum’s interview she did with Essence where she speaks very candidly about their troubled marriage.

“Bishop Weeks is doing exactly what he promised he would do and that is, “TRY” to destroy my name with lies, fabrications and exaggerations. His behavior is to be expected! Yet, the facts and photos that were taken by the district attorney’s office of me two days later and the doctor’s report from two different hospitals could not be forged nor entered into the court system as legal documents for evidence, otherwise the District Attorney’s office would not have been able to pass down an indictment. When it comes to facts the courts are different from the media. In court you have to present real facts and witnesses run the risk of perjuring themselves, therefore I cordially invite all of Bishop Week’s witnesses to the stand.

      I am not the one on trial, therefore I have nothing to defend.  How can I choke myself until the blood comes to the surface of my skin and then kick myself in five other places, one of which could not be photographed because it was in a private area [?]  At this stage of my ministry/career with major projects pending, I would not have had any motive to stage my own attack and bring worldwide negative press to myself. Having been in ministry for 20 years and reaching world wide status prior to me meeting Bishop Weeks I am confident in the power of truth! I was Juanita Bynum when I walked into this marriage and I will continue to be Juanita Bynum as I exit from this marriage in spite of all false allegations that have come against my name. As I have stated from the beginning, this too shall pass!

Wow the war is on!

Bishop Thomas Weeks denies Juanita Bynum’s claims made in Essence Magazine!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 22, 2007

Bishop Thomas Weeks

Bishop Thomas Weeks III has denied Juanita Bynum’s recent account of the trouble and  abuse that supposedly existed in their marriage as she told in Essence Magazine’s December issue. He says her depiction of the troubled marriage is not true and exaggerated and used to vilify his character.

Here is what he had to say….

Anyone who knows the truth about our marriage, knows what is in that magazine is a bunch of conjectures, misstatements, and dramatized events,” Weeks said in a statement released after a press conference at his church Wednesday.

Weeks said the interview made him look like a “villian” and that he is looking forward to being “vindicated” in the court system.

Bynum has accused Weeks of choking, beating and stomping her to the ground during an Aug. 21 attack in an Atlanta hotel parking lot. The pastor discusses the details of the incident in the magazine article.

Weeks has been charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and simple battery in connection with the incident. He later denied the account of abuse.

I look forward to the mountain of evidence that will clear me at the upcoming trial,” Weeks said. “I am extremely disappointed that my wife, who swore to me, before she asked me to marry her, that she would never publicly embarrass me, that she would never let me fail, or see me suffer. I believed her.

Juanita Bynum’s Indepth Interview!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 8, 2007

Juanita Bynum

Juanita Bynum did an in-depth interview with Essence for their December issue. Thanks StyleRazzi!

This woman has been through the fire! After the alleged physical assault by her husband Bishop Thomas Weeks III that quickly became very public in the media her reputation has come into question. Now we wonder how that can be? She was the one assaulted. How can people attack her and say she is fake after she was the one assaulted? This guy was allegedly making up new pop-lock-n-drop it moves mixed in with a little old A-Town Stomping while she lay defenseless on the ground. SMH.

Anyway in an interview with Essence she addresses the situations confronting her and what she has been through.

On Breaking Her Silence:
“All of what I’m going through right now has to do with the loss of my marriage, the love of my husband, and the jeopardizing of my integrity at the hands of my husband. I don’t want anyone to think that my silence meant consent. My silence was meant to wait for the cool of the day. This is not about anger or retaliation but integrity and truth on behalf of my name.”

On Why She Stayed in the Marriage:
“I don’t want anybody to think I was stupid for staying; I stayed because of who I was—I had to be careful. My thoughts were, I can’t get a divorce. What would people say? How would they view me? I just felt like I needed to pray more. And I did, and it did

Juanita Bynum’s $4.5million home set for auction next month for non-payment of taxes!

Posted by Media Outrage on October 16, 2007

Juanita Bynum

Evangelist Juanita Bynum’s $4.5 million South Georgia compound is scheduled to be auctioned off next month for nonpayment of property taxes, officials said.

Ware County Tax Commissioner Steve Barnard filed a lien against the 23.6-acre property owned by Juanita Bynum Ministries on June 7, citing failure to pay $32,007.56 in 2006 property tax.

According to the lien, a $3,200 penalty and $2,240 in interest is also owed.

It’s the latest legal drama involving the nationally known Pentecostal evangelist, who has been in the news in recent weeks after alleging she was beaten by her estranged husband, Thomas Weeks.

Barnard said Tuesday that the property, on St. Bernard Trail near Waycross, will be sold at auction on Nov. 6 on the steps of the Ware County Courthouse. The auction will be canceled if Bynum Ministries, which still has ownership, pays the full amount before that date, he said.

Bynum’s Waycross-based ministry bought the property for $4.5 million last year.

Barnard said there is a 7,487-square-foot house, a 6,748-square-foot house and a 1,366-square-foot house on the property. Bynum lives in one of the homes, he said.

Barnard said someone from Bynum’s office called him last month, “wanting to know if they could set up a payment plan, and I told them if she sent me $25,000, I’d take it out of the [Nov. 6] sale, and she’d have 60 days to pay the balance.

That partial payment was supposed to be made by Sept. 28, Barnard said.

“I never received anything, and then last week, I received a check for $5,000 and someone from her organization called and wanted to know if we got the check,” Barnard said. “I said, well, we got a check for $5,000 that was supposed to have been $25,000, and they wanted to know if that would take it out of the sale and I told them, no.”
