Word is evangelist and self-proclaimed prophetess Juanita Bynum says her arrest last week over a debt owed to a promoter was an “unfortunate event” stemming from fraud perpetrated by another party.
The Christian Post reports Juanita is now out telling her side of the story, saying her arrest was an “unfortunate incident.” She claims that it was the other party that was fraudulent, not her. The target of her disdain is Al Wash of ALW Entertainment, who claims that Bynum took his money and never repaid it.
Bynum issued this statement:
Until recently, it was my understanding that a resolution had been reached involving a business dispute between Mr. Al Wash, of ALW Entertainment and myself, reads Bynum’s statement on the April 18 arrest in Dallas, Texas.
I was wrongfully detained, by the Dallas Texas Sheriff’s Dept. for failing to appear in court several months ago, for a civil court appearance, of which I knew nothing, involving the prior mentioned business dispute.
Sources reports Bynum stands by her innocence, claiming that she has not been found guilty of anything. The promoter who sued her, Al Wash, is now trying to support her, even though his last comment on Twitter says that Juanita hasn’t paid him his money back yet.
Relevé Entertainment responded to accusations by Juanita Bynum.
“I am deeply saddened by Ms. Bynum’s baseless accusations, which are not only false but also slanderous. I will continue to keep her in prayer,”
Holly Carter told The Christian Post. Carter is president and CEO of Relevé Entertainment, a faith-based management and production company.
Bynum $140,000 debt claimed in the lawsuit was reportedly linked to a fee the Georgia-based minister was paid for an engagement she never honored.
Comments made by Wash on April 19 on his Twitter account indicate that Bynum owed him a past debt of $125,000, with no further updates made to his account since.
