Tye Tribbett follows Da'T.R.U.T.H. into moral controversy
FURTHER revelations about the moral character of leading American gospel acts have rocked the American scene following the earlier announcement that best selling rapper Da'T.R.U.T.H. was taking a sabbatical because of a "moral indiscretion". It has now emerged that Tye Tribbett, leader and founder of the Greater Anointing (GA) choir, has also fallen into sin. It has been revealed that in May, Tribbett's wife Shante found out that he was having an extra marital affair with a member of GA who had previously had a child by another member of the choir. When Tye's adultery came to light, it was agreed that Da'T.R.U.T.H., a long-time friend of Tye and a married minister, would counsel both Tribbett and his wife. But instead of bringing a reconciliation between the estranged couple, Da'T.R.U.T.H. began an extra-marital affair with Shante.
In a separate development Da'T.R.U.T.H.'s record company Cross Movement Records have announced "the suspension of the promotion and forwarding of the artist, minister and ministry of Da'T.R.U.T.H. aka Emanuel Lambert Jr, due to recent findings of moral failure in his marriage." So far neither Tye Tribbett nor his record company Integrity Music have made a public statement about the revelations.The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms.
