Following an outburst by Stephannie, about why her marriage to the Pastor crashed, Chris Okotie for the first time since their breakup, tongue-lashed his ex-wife, referring to her as a ‘Jezebel’.
According to reports, Pastor Chris openly spoke against Stephannie during sermon on Sunday, August 12.
During the sermon, he was said to have been bitter as he related ‘his experience in the hands’ of Stephannie. He verbally attacked her, thereafter comparing her to Jezebel in the Bible. Pastor Chris said he was free to judge her, as he kept saying that ‘he suffered much in her hands’, but failed to say what exactly was her offence.
He was also quoted to have said she is free to say whatever she likes about him, and if she likes, she could go to CNN or BBC but he would never accept her back into his life. Since their divorce, Pastor Chris was also said to have taken back the gift of two cars, a Benz S Class and a BMW X6 he bought for her during their four years marriage. It would be recalled that in June this year, Pastor Chris Okotie, who is also the head of Household of God Church, Lagos, announced his marriage break-up to his second wife, Stephannie Henshaw.
The glamorous marriage between him and his beautiful wife crashed less than four years after their big wedding. In a dramatic announcement after a moving ministration, he told his church their differences were irreconcilable and that they had divorced.
“Stephanie and I are no longer married. We have separated. You can see she’s not in church today. It’s due to irreconcilable differences and you should please respect our wishes at this time because there is no going back.”
