Paul Crouch, a self styled minister of God is caught in tangled web over a homosexual affair.
According to Enoch Lonnie Ford, he and Crouch had a homosexual relationship eight years ago. Ford who was later dismissed from his duties at the Trinity Broadcasting Network was paid $425,000 in exchange for not mention the sexual relationship to any one. Ford, though, has had a change of heart and now wants to go public.
Crouch is fighting back claiming that Ford is a liar, and has a long history of drug abuse.
What Crouch is afraid of losing is the public image of one of the world's most successful televangelists and, potentially, the fortunes of the broadcasting empire that Crouch and his wife, Jan, built over the last 31 years.
The more notable of televangelist who also share the same limelight as Crouch is Jimmy Swaggert and Jim Baker.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
