IT'S A GOSPEL SHOWDOWN!!!!! LET'S FIGHT, I MEAN PRAY, I MEAN....!!!!!!!
OH NO!!!! This next story should be a SIN.....
There seems to be some drama in the Gospel world!!! According to my friends in my head, MediaTakeOut.com, Christian rapper Da Truth, has been suspended indefinitely from his record label, Cross Movement Records, because HE REPORTEDLY HAD AN AFFAIR WITH HIS BEST FRIEND'S WIFE!!!! (Geeezzzzuuuuussssssss!!!!)
Who is his best friend you ask? It is fellow gospel artist, Tye Tribett!!!! (The woman in the picture is his wife.) Oh, but the story gets extra juicy!!! Here is what Gospel Website, DaGospelTruth.com reports:
Apparently Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s "indiscretion" was an extramarital affair of his own. As the facts are slowly unfolding, and as much as it sounds like an episode of the Young & The Restless, the affair was allegedly with [Tye] Tribett's wife Shante. Yes, you read that correctly!
Confused? Well, here's the recap in a nutshell: Tye cheated on his wife with a choir member who was his good friend's baby's mother. Da' T.R.U.T.H., Tye's mentee, cheated with Tye's wife. And it's all going on in gospel. Who would have thought?
Well how do we know that this is all true? We can't say for sure. But Da Truth has all but admitted to it, when he posted an apology on his personal website shortly after the gospel world started buzzing with the rumor. The apology was for a "moral indiscretion." Here's a portion of the apology:
In light of a moral indiscretion in my personal life, I will be taking a sabbatical from music ministry and teaching upon fulfilling my current commitments to work closely with my pastor, church and restoration team.
I have repented first to God and then to my wife and family. It is my prayer that my family, supporters and the brethren in Christ will collectively be able to forgive me.
Now, if you have a demented mind like mines, you probably are wondering who is going to be the one to drown the other person in the baptismal pool this Sunday at the Church service. This is quite intense for gospel artists to be involved in, if you ask me. I guess drama is everywhere, including the Church scene...So sad.
