THE DOWNFALL OF GRAY'S PUBLIC IMAGE

Currently, the pastor faces two separate lawsuits, including one that is trying to evict him and his congregation from the facilities owned by Ron and Hope Carpenter. Despite this, Gray and his wife Aventer are considering other TV and film opportunities following their show cancellation.

Gray's bad publicity sprung from when he gifted his wife a Lamborghini Urus for their eighth wedding anniversary, which people bashed endlessly.

DEFENDING HIS ACTIONS

After receiving flack from people, especially those that attend his church, he defended his actions saying it was him who bought it, and it had nothing to do with him being a pastor. 

“First of all, it wasn’t a pastor that bought the car. It was a husband that bought the car. Get that in your spirit. 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. And I won’t ask permission from anybody to do it. No man should."

FACING TWO LAWSUITS

Shortly after that, he revealed he wanted to end his life after allegations of his infidelity came to light.

The latest of his woes came after the Carpenters, who co-founded the Redemption World Outreach Center in Greenville, South Carolina, gave him and his church a lease termination notice after their business relationship fell apart. 

His other lawsuit came after Richard Travis Hayes, his former chief operating officer for Relentless Church, filed a lawsuit against the church and Gray for more than $75,000 in unpaid money.
