Pastor John Gray of Relentless Church in South Carolina has gained national attention after he released a video showing his wife's anniversary gift, a brand new Lamborghini SUV worth over $200,000.
The pastor received so much bad press, after going viral, that his wife is now defending him on social media..
In the below video, Pastor Gray is seen showing wife, Aventer Gray, her 8th wedding anniversary gift, a Lamborghini Urus SUV that starts at about $200,000.
Since the video posted, MILLIONS of people have commented on Pastor Gray, mostly in a negative manner.
Pastor Gray's wife took to Instagram on Sunday, to defend her husband's lavish gift. On the caption, she claimed that her husband got the money from his business ventures - including book deals, silent endorsements, movie and TV productions.
“I don’t see anyone screaming about how basketball players drive what they do while you paying $$$ to see them play in arenas and on fields. We don’t live for people! We live for God!” she wrote.
Then Pastor Gray defended himself in a Facebook Live video on Thursday.
“It wasn’t a pastor that bought the car — it was a husband that bought the car. Get that in your spirit,” Gray said. “I’m a husband first. Don’t confuse what I do with who I am. What I do is I pastor God’s people. Who I am is a husband and a father, and I’ll do anything to honor them.”
