Disgraced Hillsong Church pastor Carl Lentz has “gone into hiding” after being fired from the trendy church.
Lentz who has preached to Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Chris Pratt, and Kevin Durant, among many other stars got the boot last week after admitting that he’d been “unfaithful to his wife! A no no in church circles based on their faith.”
Now we’re told he’s embarrassed and unreachable.
“It’s like he’s gone into hiding,” a source said, “He’s not returning anyone’s phone calls. Friends have been trying to encourage him to hire someone to navigate this situation, but he’s not responding.”
Meanwhile, we’re told Bieber started distancing himself from Lentz over a year ago which culminated with the star unfollowing the pastor after the scandal blew out!
“[Justin] quit going and it was pretty abrupt. He separated from the church a while ago. They used him,” the source said, “They were opportunistic leaches. Carl ‘Hipster too cool for school’ is a total used car salesman type of guy.”
“He was always living the pop star life, popping bottles on private planes. The infidelity was not a surprise,” the source said. “At one point, he was in Australia with Bieber at a bar with his shirt off and doing shots… He’s new age and modern, but shots and taking off your clothes in public places? Come on.”
Another insider confirmed that Bieber’s new spiritual advisor is Judah Smith, who leads Churchome.
In an interview with The Post, his mistress Ranin said that they’d had a five-month relationship after meeting in Brooklyn in May.
“We were obsessed with each other,” she said, “He was like a drug to me. I was a drug to him.”
Lentz did not get back to us. A rep for Bieber did not comment.
