Gospel Artist James Hall Denies Relationship With Bishop Jeffrey Thomas Calls Him A Disgruntled Fan

Gospel artist James Hall is fighting back against  Bishop Jeffrey Thomas, who slandered his name on social media by implying to his followers that Hall was involved in a homosexual relationship with the pastor of their Cypress Hill church.    This reportedly happened after Bishop Thomas made advances towards Hall that were rejected by the singer.

According to court papers,  Hall said the Bishop got the wrong idea about their relationship, he was just showing Christian love when he helped  Thomas through a recent illness.

But the bishop had romance on the brain, and when Hall rejected his advances, Thomas embarked on a scandal campaign against Hall that drew in the musical director’s pastor and their Cypress Hills church, according to the lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Thomas, 35, and Hall met at a church-related event in 2015. So smitten was Thomas with Hall that after several more meetings, he gave up his ministry in North Carolina and moved to New York. But after several rejections — and several jealous tantrums — Thomas sought revenge on social media, posting hints about a sexual relationship between Hall and the church’s pastor, Kevin Bond, and contacting church members with salacious accusations about the church leaders.

Hall, who has recorded several gospel albums, said Thomas was trying to “destroy me and my career.”

“There is no justification for this conduct,” Hall said in the lawsuit. “There is no justification for this conduct. Mr. Thomas has never expressed any purpose to his actions other than some imagined relationship he believes he has with me, and is nothing more than a disgruntled fan.”

The suit said Hall stayed with Thomas for a while and helped him recover from an illness in North Carolina. After his move to New York, Thomas stayed with Hall until he found a place of his own.

Hall had previously took to social media to address a photograph of him and a shirtless Thomas that he says was misconstrued by the church community.

“Me and a friend were sitting on my couch acting silly as friends DO!!!! We weren’t even the only people in the room,” Hall explained. “When I saw the pic posted, I decided that it was inappropriate and could be misread especially for the climate we live in today. There’s nothing to talk about, But I get it. You think you have something, BUT YOU HAVE NOTHING!”

The church leaders are seeking an injunction against Thomas and $15 million in damages.
