Thomas Dexter Jakes Sr., often known as T. D. Jakes, is an American bishop, author, and filmmaker who was born on June 9, 1957.
He serves as the bishop of the nondenominational American megachurch The Potter’s House. The Potter’s Touch airs Jakes’s church services and evangelistic talks.
The field of gospel music is currently rife with conflict. Bishop T.D. Jakes’ eldest daughter Cora Jakes-Coleman divorced her husband Richard Coleman earlier this year. Richard is now being charged with molesting their adopted daughter sexually.
Cora Jakes-Coleman Announces Her Divorce
In June 2011, the pair exchanged vows in a private ceremony. Her father officiated the wedding as well as led her down the aisle.
She looked stunning in pictures from the wedding that went viral, wearing specially created, glittering, crystal-studded suede Christian Louboutin shoes.
They have been upfront throughout their marriage about their inability to conceive and battle with infertility.
They decided to adopt as a result, and they did so for two kids: son Jason and daughter Amauri. They have posted family images online and spoken at conferences about how to de-stigmatize adoption.
Jakes-Coleman announced their separation in January 2022. The 34-year-old Faithing It author stated, “It is with a heavy heart that I announce that my husband and I have decided to divorce.” Jakes-Coleman is also an associate pastor at her father’s church, Potter’s House of Dallas.
“This is a very private and personal problem,” she wrote, “and I politely ask for your prayers as I prioritize my own well-being at this time, as well as, most importantly, that of my children.” No explanation for the break was given at the time.
Her Husband Is Arrested for Sexual Abuse of A Minor
Their breakup was the subject of debate over whether adultery or the pandemic’s effects were to blame. But according to well-known Christian vlogger Larry Reid, the root of the problem is more grave.
He revealed that Richard was detained on suspicion of child molesting on his YouTube show. According to a person close to the family, Richard allegedly groped their 13-year-old adopted daughter improperly.
According to the insider, it’s probable that something “further” than touching happened. On the evening of May 4, he was detained for sexual assault.
The Biological Mother of One of The Children Speak Out
The couple is also dealing with further serious allegations from the biological mother of their adopted son on top of the divorce and sexual abuse charges.
More claims were made against the famous couple on social media by the woman, who claimed they had manipulated her into approving the adoption. The biological mother was using religion as a means of manipulation.
She worries that Richard’s incarceration led to harm being done to her daughter, the Colemans’ adoptive daughter, while she was in their custody.
