Powerball Winner Marie Holmes Sued By Her Pastor For $10 Million
Mo money…mo problems! Weeks after Powerball winner Marie Holmes was served with a criminal summons for harassing and threatening a woman, she’s been slapped with a $10 million lawsuit by her pastor!
Here’s the scoop via Black America Web:
Pastor Kevin Matthews says he is experiencing emotional and mental distress due to her backing down from a verbal contract they had regarding $1.5 million to purchase land to build a retreat facility.
“Because of the emotional distress and mental stress, they put me through, I had to start taking more medicine for anxiety and depression due to this situation,” says Pastor Kevin Matthews.
Holmes’ attorney, Ruth Sheehan, of The Francis Law Firm, said she was not aware of the situation or the lawsuit.
In a recent interview with EURweb, Pastor Matthews says: “God led him to her house and he prayed with her.”
He later met Holmes and ministered to her on several occasions at her new home. He also said he ministered to three other people at her home, and then he eventually asked her to consider giving him money to purchase land to build a retreat. He gave her three different amounts that he needed ($1 million, $1.5 million and $2 million). After several meetings, she agreed to give him $1.5 million to help purchase land to build a retreat center that he says he had been praying about for years.
