Pastor Carl Lentz & Justin Bieber
Celebrity Pastor Carl Lentz — who has worked with Justin in the past — reportedly told TMZ he spent a week doing intense Bible study with Justin last month, right after he was being extorted by whomever possessed the videos of him telling racist jokes and using inflammatory language when he was 15.
JB’s team were reportedly contacted two months back by a man demanding a million dollars to not release the videos to the public.
Justin’s reacquaintance with religion reportedly included studying passages in the Bible and attending services, and culminated in a baptism performed in a friend’s bathtub.
TMZ reported the reason Justin got baptized in a bathtub was so he could keep things private — until the N-word videos went public and JB’s team needed to leak a story about his rediscovering religion.
