It looks like the problems for Bishop Weeks didn’t end with his divorce from Juanita Bynum. A former employee wants him thrown under the jail for not paying her the dough she’s owed per a previous court order:
A former employee of Global Destiny Church has asked a Gwinnett judge to put Bishop Thomas W. Weeks III in jail for contempt of court because he failed to repay a debt to her.
A petition for contempt was filed Tuesday by Suzanne Ellis. The petition says that Weeks, and his church empire Global Destiny Inc. and TWIII Ministries Inc., never reimbursed Ellis for about $90,000 worth of items she was asked to buy as an employee.
After Ellis filed a lawsuit seeking repayment and reimbursement for attorney fees in 2007, Weeks’ attorneys reached an agreement to reconcile the debt last year. But Weeks did not make the payments as set forth in the agreement, the petition says.
The petition asks that Weeks be jailed for contempt of court for a time not to exceed 20 days and be compelled to comply with the earlier agreement.
Weeks launched his ministry in Duluth with his famous wife, Juanita Bynum, an author, gospel singer and pastor. Bynum divorced Weeks after claiming that he beat her in an Atlanta hotel parking lot on Aug. 21, 2007.
A Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge will have to hear evidence to determine whether Weeks is in contempt, however a hearing date has not yet been scheduled.
What person in their right mind would front $90K worth of church sh*t? Jesus himself would say, “We’re putting this on the church’s card, right??” SMH
