THE DIVORCE

On January 26, 2010, Suzanne officially separated from Benny and filed a petition for divorce in Orange County Superior Court on February 1, 2010. According to her, the reason for the divorce was irreconcilable differences, as revealed by the court papers.

The senior advisor to Benny revealed that Benny and his immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of the news as it came as a surprise to them as the divorce petition was filed without notice.

Throughout the divorce saga, Benny expressed that he hoped God restored his marriage, and even though things between them were terrible, he had been faithful to his wife throughout the time they were married, while Suzanne refused to speak about it.

When asked what might have caused their divorce, Benny said their marriage died for two reasons: he put his ministry above his marriage, and the other being that Suzanne was on some drugs that affected her emotional stability at the time.

RECONCILIATION AND REMARRIAGE

For Benny, the divorce period was the most agonizing two and a half years of his life. The end of his marriage woke him up, and he believes that the Lord used it to show him that he cannot function properly without his wife and family.

On Suzanne’s part, she decided that she needed professional help to gain freedom from her chemical dependence. For three and a half months, she underwent exhaustive treatment.

She described it as a hard process, but it gave her a better understanding of what she had been through. The main reconciliation came when Suzanne hosted a Christmas party for herself and her family, with Benny in attendance.

The pair spent time together bonding and decided to spend time together afterward. The pair remarried in front of a thousand friends and family, with Pastor Jack Hayford and Reinhard Bonke officiating the wedding ceremony.

Benny even said that the friendship between himself and Paula had to end in order for peace to reign. Aside from his rumored relationship with Paula White, Benny has also had to deal with some allegations from the media about his way of life and finances.

His nephew, Costi Hinn, admitted that although Benny was his uncle, he began to grow uncomfortable with the prosperity preaching that was going on all the time in the ministry. He added that the Hinn clan was like a hybrid of the royal family and the mafia.
