Hailey Bieber Unfollows Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz After His Reported Cheating Scandal

A new report from Page Six today said Hailey Baldwin has unfollowed Carl Lentz, the Hillsong pastor, on Instagram, following his firing from the church.

In case you missed it, the mega-pastor released an Instagram statement earlier this month in which he claimed he had fallen prey to “moral failures.”

Last Thursday, Lentz announced on his social media that he had been “unfaithful” to his wife, Laura. Lentz is intimately connected to Justin Bieber and Hailey due to not only his relationship with the singer through some of his darkest times but also because he was the one to baptize Bieber in a bathtub just five years ago.

In his message, Lentz conceded that the “failure” was on him, and he took “full responsibility” for what he had done. Carl went on to say in his post that he has to start rebuilding the trust between himself and his wife, the mother of his children.

Our time at HillsongNYC has come to an end. This is a hard ending to what has been the most amazing, impacting and special chapter of our lives. Leading this church has been an honor in every sense of the word and it is impossible to articulate how much we have loved and will always love the amazing people in this church. When you accept the calling of being a pastor, you must live in such a way that it honors the mandate. That it honors the church, and that it honors God. When that does not happen, a change needs to be made and has been made in this case to ensure that standard is upheld. Laura and I and our amazing children have given all that we have to serve and build this church and over the years I did not do an adequate job of protecting my own spirit, refilling my own soul and reaching out for the readily available help that is available. When you lead out of an empty place, you make choices that have real and painful consequences. 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. I now begin a journey of rebuilding trust with my wife, Laura and my children and taking real time to work on and heal my own life and seek out the help that I need. I am deeply sorry for breaking the trust of many people who we have loved serving and understand that this news can be very hard and confusing for people to hear and process. I would have liked to say this with my voice, to you, in person because you are owed that. But that opportunity I will not have. So to those people, I pray you can forgive me and that over time I can live a life where trust is earned again. To our pastors Brian and Bobbie, thank you for allowing us to lead, allowing us to thrive and giving us room to have a voice that you have never stifled or tried to silence. Thank you for your grace and kindness especially in this season, as you have done so much to protect and love us through this. We, the Lentz family, don’t know what this next chapter will look like, but we will walk into it together very hopeful and grateful for the grace of God..

Lentz claimed he was going to “seek out the help” he needs. As it was previously reported, Brian Houston, the Hillsong founding member, confirmed the news of Carl’s firing in an email to staff members and other church attendees.

Religious News Service claimed there were “leadership issues” and “breaches of trust,” and that was the reason for his employment’s termination. Houston wrote in his message that it likely “came as a shock” to many of them, but it was for the best of everyone, including Carl, himself.

According to Page Six, Lentz still follows Baldwin, 23, and a number of other celebrities on the ‘Gram. As Mr. Houston had mentioned, the announcement of Carl’s firing has come as a surprise to many members of the congregation.

Moreover, it’s big news on account of the aforementioned relationship he has with Justin Bieber. In fact, Bieber had said in the past that Carl played a crucial role in his finding God, as well as his fight out of the darkness. Fans of the performing artist know Justin has struggled with mental health and other health issues for years.
