Hat Tip: D. Aileen Dodd, Atlanta Journal Constitution
In a statement released by attorney Louis Tesser of Kessler, Schwarz and Solomiany, Weeks says he still hasn’t received notice that a divorce filing has been made by his wife national evangelist Juanita Bynum.
“The Bishop Thomas W. Weeks has hoped and still hopes that the marriage can be reconciled,” Tesser said. “If that is possible he is committed to working things out amicably and will only litigate as a very last resort.”
Word of the pending divorce spread after Bynum spoke of it on a news broadcast. A relative also confirmed the divorce filing Thursday.
Tesser said if Bynum has a divorce attorney he is ready to meet with the lawyer and discuss the matter privately.
Amy Malone, Bynum’s publicist, said she had no comment on the issue.
Bynum has resurfaced in the public spotlight calling herself “the new face of domestic violence,” referring to the alleged beating by her husband. The minister told police Weeks beat, choked and stomped her in a hotel parking lot on Aug. 21.
Weeks, 40, was charged with felony aggravated assault, felony terroristic threats and two counts of simple battery in connection to the incident. His appearance in Fulton County Superior Court originally set for today has been postponed indefinitely.
The case has been reassigned to a different judge. Weeks could face up to 27 years in jail if convicted.
Is this Negro for real? Doesn’t he know that he’s going to jail?
