Pastor Carl Lentz’ Alleged Mistress Spilled Her Guts To The Sun
The mistress speaks! It’s the moment we all hope for when a cheating scandal breaks, and for Justin Bieber’s former slick and sleazy Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz, that moment has arrived. A 34-year-old designer from New York City, who only revealed her first name, Ranin, has given an interview with The Sun. Is it as juicy as the interview Ruth Perez Anselmi gave about her alleged affair with Hailey Baldwin’s dad Stephen Baldwin? Sadly, no. We may never reach those heights again. But Ranin did say that the defrocked pastor (or more accurately here, skinny jeans stripped pastor) told her he was “an unmarried sports agent” and even though he broke off their months-long romance after he was caught, they’re still in love.
Last week it was announced that the alarmingly culty Hillsong Church had relieved Carl of his post as pastor of their New York City congregation due to “a recent revelation of moral failures.” Tips sent to Instagram gossip site Deuxmoi suggested that it might be “drinking, drugs n women that did it,” which turned out to be at least partially true (tequila and pussy have been confirmed!). Carl admitted to being “unfaithful in my marriage” in an Instagram post and apologized to his wife Laura Lentz adding he will now “begin a journey of rebuilding trust.” In which case, Carl should be thanking Ranin because she’s done the hard work of full disclosure for him. According to Ranin, this wasn’t just some fling. It was TruLove4Ever (which in this case was about 5 months).
Ranin, whom wishes to keep her last name private, revealed to The Sun she wanted to tell her story so Carl’s followers know “there was another person on the other side of his statement that got hurt.”
She said his Instagram post about his firing was “offensive,” and made it seem like they “just had a fling.”
The stunning brunette said: “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.”
Ranin says she had no idea who Carl was and certainly didn’t know he was the one responsible for dunking Justin Beiber’s head in a toilet (presumed) in the name of Jesus Christ. Ranin says they met in May when Carl approached her in a park in Brooklyn.
“He told me the most beautiful women come from the Middle East and we kept talking from there. We walked and talked more for a little bit and exchanged numbers.
“He told me his name was Carl but that’s it, he wouldn’t tell me his last name. And he told me that his job was as a sports agent,” Ranin claimed of his alleged secrecy regarding his occupation.
She claimed Carl, 42, refused to give his last name because he did not want to be “Googled” so she can “get to know him in person.”
Sounds like a professional to me, but after she found out he was married, Carl told her he’d never done anything like this before! Apparently “God told him to tell me that I need to know my worth and there’s something special about me.” Really, God? You didn’t have anything more pressing to manifest?
The New Yorker continued: “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.
“He texted me later that night and he said something like, ‘It was great getting to know you more. Sorry if you were bummed to find out I am married, I could tell you kind of were.’
Ranin says that by this point, she knew something other than his Moses staff was up. So she did a reverse phone number search and found out he was fame adjacent. They continued to fuck. They just couldn’t quit each other.
Ranin said that she called Carl out and he came over to her place that night to explain himself with a bottle of their favorite alcohol, tequila.
She even alleged while Carl was with his wife of 17-years, Laura, on her birthday, he sent Ranin a message saying he “doesn’t know how to stop” their relationship.
The Sun has viewed emotional texts and video messages Carl sent to Ranin.
She claimed she told him: “‘I wish I never met you at the park.’ I would tell him I want nothing to do with him but he would keep coming back despite me telling him to leave me alone.
“Every time I said I’m done, he would come back and pursue me. He was always the one who pursued me.
Things finally fell apart when Laura “saw all of their messages – including ‘naughty photos’ – which were connected to his work computer at the church office while several other co-workers were also present.” So sloppy, maybe he’s an amateur after all! After Laura and his earthly bosses found out (the Big Boss upstairs was watching the whole time, creepy!), Carl came over one last time for a farewell fuck.
“He sat on my bed and kept repeating ‘My life is over. I’m going to lose my job. I don’t know if my wife is ever going to forgive me.’”
Ranin says that Carl’s parting words to her, presumably after “Jesus Christ, I’m coming! I’m coming so hard,” were that they were both “beautiful, broken people who found each other and collided.” So romantic! But then he added that they both “need help.” But from the sound of it, Ranin already went ahead and helped herself. Carl better hope God picks up the phone as fast as The Sun does.
