Velvet Marquez, Wife of Georgia Cult Leader Eligio Bishop, Speaks Out After His Arrest

Velvet Marquez, the wife of Georgia cult leader Eligio Bishop, is speaking out after his recent arrest.

Eligio Bishop, also known as “Nature Boy” and “Th3 3God,” was reportedly arrested on Wednesday, April 13, in Decatur, Georgia, on charges of rape, false imprisonment, and three counts of sexually explicit transmission.

He is the leader of a cult currently known as “Carbon Nation”, and formerly known as “Melanation.”

Velvet says Eligio forced her to marry him after having his daughter in 2019.

She said he lived off of other cult members’ PPP loans and life savings.

During their relationship, she said she gave him her $3000 college fund.

After four attempts, Velvet successfully ran away with her daughter.

Velvet says she fell in love with an idea because he pretended to be someone he wasn’t.

I fell in love with an idea because he pretended to be someone that he wasn’t.

He literally held me hostage. He took all of my identification, my passport, my birth certificate, my social, my bank cards, everything, you name it, medical documentation.

I was forced to engage in sexual activity that I did not want to do.

I was beat… still strangled on multiple occasions so I had to, like, willingly engage in these sexual activities because of… to keep myself safe.

He would abuse me in front of the women.

There was no medical attention given to us. 

So when I actually went into labor, I had to be rushed to the hospital two hours away.

My child is important. I don’t understand how anybody could leave their child to be with him or to go live with him.
