- Carl Lentz attended a private post-Super Bowl party held for Jennifer Lopez last year in Miami, a report says
- The disgraced pastor reportedly flirted with several women during the bash
- He and another pastor allegedly recorded videos of celebrity attendees at the exclusive event
Carl Lentz flirted with several women and acted “celebrity-obsessed” during a private post-Super Bowl party held for Jennifer Lopez last year, a report says.
The disgraced celebrity pastor, who was fired by Hillsong Church earlier this month for infidelity, attended the bash held on a yacht in Miami with another famous pastor pal, Rich Wilkerson Jr., Page Six reported. An unnamed eyewitness told the outlet that the two were “partying their a–es off” and “acting really weird.”
The insider also described the 42-year-old preacher as a “womanizing manw—e.” He allegedly flirted with several women during the private bash and some sat on his lap at one point, the report said.
Another unnamed source told Page Six that Lentz’s wife, Laura, was also present and sitting on his lap.
Lentz and Wilkerson reportedly acted like fanboys during the “super exclusive” party, something that didn’t sit well with the other attendees. The two pastors allegedly recorded videos of the other partygoers, such as rapper Too Short, to later brag about their connections with stars, an unnamed tipster told the outlet.
“They were celebrity-obsessed. They were running around like inappropriate superfans,” the insider added.
Meanwhile, Lentz and wife Laura put on a united front over the weekend, nearly two weeks after the celebrity pastor admitted to having an affair. They were spotted enjoying a family dinner with their kids in Los Angeles Sunday, Page Six reported.
On Monday, Lentz stepped out for a solo swim at the beach. He was photographed shirtless while talking to someone on the phone. The preacher was also spotted meditating at one point.
Prior to Lentz’s sightings, an unnamed insider earlier told Page Six that he wasn’t answering any calls from his friends and appeared to have gone into hiding.
Hillsong Church fired him on Nov. 4 due to “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.” A day later, Lentz publicly admitted on Instagram that he had cheated on his wife of 17 years.
“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 wrote.
In his post, he said that he plans to begin a new journey with his family and to take some time to work on and heal his own life. He also promised to seek help.
Lentz and his family moved to Los Angeles after they sold their $1.5 million home in Montclair, New Jersey, just days before his scandal broke.
Lentz was Justin Bieber’s former spiritual mentor and preached to celebrities such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Chris Pratt and Kevin Durant, among many others.
