NEWS: The Legendary “Pastor Chris Okotie” Announces Crash of His Second Marriage

[UPDATE]

Pastor and Former presidential candidate Chris Okotie has dispelled on-going rumours suggesting he’s planning to walk down the aisle again this year.

Speaking through a Household of God Executive, Okotie says the stories are baseless, totally false and ridiculous.

The public is hereby informed that Rev. Okotie never announced any plans to remarry this December or at any future date’, said Ladi Ayodeji in a statement, adding that:

Okotie …remains committed to his pledge not to speak on his marriage.

Any story in this regard should therefore be seen as the handiwork of mischief makers.’

[PREVIOUSLY]

Following an outburst by Stephanie, about why her marriage to the Pastor crashed, Chris Okotie for the first time since their breakup, tongue-lashed his ex-wife, referring to her as a ‘Jezebel’.

According to reports, Pastor Chris openly spoke against Stephanie during sermon on Sunday, August 12.

During the sermon, he was said to have been bitter as he related ‘his experience in the hands’ of Stephanie. He verbally attacked her, thereafter comparing her to Jezebel in the Bible. Pastor Chris said he was free to judge her, as he kept saying that ‘he suffered much in her hands’, but failed to say what exactly was her offence.

He was also quoted to have said she is free to say whatever she likes about him, and if she likes, she could go to CNN or BBC but he would never accept her back into his life. Since their divorce, Pastor Chris was also said to have taken back the gift of two cars, a Benz S Class and a BMW X6 he bought for her during their four years marriage. It would be recalled that in June this year, Pastor Chris Okotie, who is also the head of Household of God Church, Lagos, announced his marriage break-up to his second wife, Stephanie Henshaw.

The glamorous marriage between him and his beautiful wife crashed less than four years after their big wedding. In a dramatic announcement after a moving ministration, he told his church their differences were irreconcilable and that they had divorced.

Stephanie and I are no longer married. We have separated. You can see she’s not in church today.

It’s due to irreconcilable differences and you should please respect our wishes at this time because there is no going back.”

[PREVIOUSLY]

Stephanie, the beautiful ex-wife of Reverend Chris Okotie, has broken her silence barely a week after their glamorous marriage crumbled and after the couple vowed to keep mum over what led to the break up.

The split, she said in an unusual outburst on Facebook, was caused by hateful members of Okotie’s Household of God Church with some even labelling her a witch and a mermaid.

Lies, not from the world but the church, accusations not from the world, but the church, where are the spirit-filled Christians, the ones who fear and hear the Lord?Stephanie lashed out.

The mother of three and now ex-wife to three men seemed to be struggling with emotions and sentences as she narrated how Chris Okotie, a former pop star turned pastor and politician was fed with false information concerning her.

“My husband loves and adores me, he is not the one saying these things; the enemies from within who hate me…they hate the grace God showed me, they hate the mercy God has had on me, so they come up with all kinds of lies,” she said.

In one post on Facebook, Stephanie accused Okotie of conniving with some unnamed members to accuse her of witchcraft and of possessing the spirit of the water goddess, popularly called mammy water or mermaid.

The post gave a hint that the members Stephanie was referring to are female admirers in the glamorous church.

My going can bring one Mrs. Okotie, what happens to the rest of you?

You bring shame to the body of Christ out of your jealousy and selfish desire and in the process expose your pastor,” she said.

The work he has to do cost Jesus His life. Don’t joke with it; our friendship is not based on marriage.

You manipulate things at the expense of God’s Work and name.

It’s not about me, it has never been, it’s about the will of God.

She also added that: “For the four years they were together, he never fell ill, but today I am called all sorts of names, witch, mermaid spirit.

I have served Jesus with clean hands and a clean heart, I have loved all that have come my way and if I don’t live through this pain and hurt, as sure as Jesus lives, my children will see my vindication.”

Stephanie, who has since changed her profile on the social internet site with her name now as Stephanie Adie Henshaw, said it was the hearsay from church members who crashed the much publicised marriage, adding that she had since packed out of Okotie’s house in Opebi, Ikeja.

Today makes it three weeks I was asked for a separation, and a week and four days I packed out,” she said.

Going scriptural, Stephanie quoted Romans 8:28, which reads: ‘all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.’

She said she was obedient and submissive during the four years the marriage lasted.

Lord, I left that home blameless. Before you I have loved, but have never been loved, I have given but has not received, but that is contrary to Your word. Lord, so today I ask your word be made manifest in my life,” she said.

She confessed that she had known Reverend Okotie for 20 years and that they were very close friends for 15 of the 20 years.

I prepared all his meals for 10 years including the four years we were married.

“The day I was asked to leave, I prepared his meal, served it and I left,” she lamented.

Stephanie’s outburst on Facebook came to many who know her as a surprise and she has not denied the posts.
