JUSTIN Bieber's wife Hailey unfollowed her pastor pal Carl Lentz after his "secret girlfriend" came forward about their "affair."
The pastor revealed he had cheated on his wife, while Ranin talked to The Sun about their relationship.
Hailey, 23, unfollowed Carl on social media yesterday as he deals with the demise of both his marriage and his career.
The model and her husband, Justin, were very close to the pastor and in fact, they both got baptized in their adult life by him.
The singer, on the other hand, still follows him as he let the ousted pastorstay at Justin's NYC apartment.
Hailey's social media activity comes after the worship leader was axed for “a recent revelation of moral failures,” according to a statement that was allegedly sent out to church members.
Following his firing, Carl took it upon himself to confess that he had cheated on his wife.
Admitting that he "did not do an adequate job of protecting my own spirit, refilling my own soul and reaching out for the readily available help that is available," he confirmed he had had an affair and was now working on building back trust in his marriage.
He wrote that this was a "hard ending to what has been the most amazing, impacting and special chapter of our lives."
Carl spoke of the honor he felt at leading the church, before sharing that when you "lead out of an empty place, you make choices that have real and painful consequences."
"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.
"I am deeply sorry for breaking the trust of many people who we have loved serving and understand that this news can be very hard and confusing for people to hear and process."
He continued: "I would have liked to say this with my voice, to you, in person because you are owed that. But that opportunity I will not have. So to those people, I pray you can forgive me and that over time I can live a life where trust is earned again."
However, his remorseful statement did not sit well with one church leader who claimed to have known about his infidelity for years.
A woman, who was involved with Hillsong for years before allegedly being “silenced” and “kicked out,” exclusively told The Sun that the affairs have been going on since at least 2017 – and the church apparently knew about them.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Carl was “in love” with brunette beauty Ranin, a 34-year-old designer, who claims they started their affair after meeting in May at Domino Park in Brooklyn.
She alleged Carl initially refused to give her his last name because he did not want to be “Googled” and told her he wanted her to “get to know him in person.”
Ranin, who wants to keep her surname private, also claimed he told her he was a sports agent, and she only found out the truth about his church fame after paying to flip his phone number online.
She told The Sun: “I wasn’t there for just sex, we both found comfort and a deep, special connection with each other. I am very hurt because we both feel the same way about each other.
“He loves me and I love him. It was a love relationship that wasn’t planned. It wasn’t just a fling or just a sexual relationship.
“He didn’t tell me that he was married at first, he doesn’t wear a ring. A few dates in, I had a feeling something was up so I asked him if he was married.
And he admitted that yes, he had been for 17 years and has three kids."
Though his secret was out, they allegedly continued dating and the Egyptian and Palestinian beauty admitted they began having sex early on into the affair, and would hang out “a few times a week” for several months.
She says Laura finally found out about their affair after discovering "naughty photos" – which were connected to his work computer at the church office while several other co-workers were also present.
But despite claiming "my life is over" and being concerned about losing his job and his wife not forgiving him, she alleges they were intimate once again during an emotional goodbye.
His wife Laura is a also a lead pastor at Hillsong East Coast Church.
The couple met at Hillsong College, a school affiliated with the international organization, and have three children, Ava, Charlie, and Roman.
