: There's some DRAMA going on in Gospel music. MediaTakeOut.com just learned that Christian rapper Da Truth (Gov. name, Emanuel L. Lambert) was suspended indefinitely from his record label Cross Movement Records.
What did he do, you ask? Well he reportedly has been HAVING AN AFFAIR with his best friend's wife. And not just any old best friend, the dude whos wife he's allegedly screwing is a gospel artist also named Tye Tribett.
Here's how the website, DaGospelTruth.com is reporting it:
Apparently Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s "indiscretion" was an extramarital affair of his own. As the facts are slowly unfolding, and as much as it sounds like an episode of the Young & The Restless, the affair was allegedly with [Tye] Tribett's wife Shante. Yes, you read that correctly!
Confused? Well, here's the recap in a nutshell: Tye cheated on his wife with a choir member who was his good friend's baby's mother. Da' T.R.U.T.H., Tye's mentee, cheated with Tye's wife. And it's all going on in gospel. Who would have thought?
Well how do we know that this is all true? We can't say for sure. But Da Truth has all but admitted to it, when he posted an apology on his personal website shortly after the gospel world started buzzing with the rumor. The apology was for a "moral indiscretion." Here's a portion of the apology:
In light of a moral indiscretion in my personal life, I will be taking a sabbatical from music ministry and teaching upon fulfilling my current commitments to work closely with my pastor, church and restoration team.
I have repented first to God and then to my wife and family. It is my prayer that my family, supporters and the brethren in Christ will collectively be able to forgive me.

not DA Truth and Mr. Tribbett
well we're not all perfect, we are all humans/ And we all fall short in the grace of God but thats really foul if they are best friends. Atleast he seems to have realized what he's done, and is remorseful, apologized and repented. Some of us wouldn't even care or feel bad about committing a sin like this but REAL christains will admit their wrong(s), apologize, repent, and be willing to be dragged under the bus of humility in order to gain forgiveness.
Keep ya head up TRUTH, God still with ya.
This is why I have a problem with Tye Tribbett. He is the first to say not to support secular singers and not to buy their clothing. He even told his brother not to play drums for R&B singers. Now this joker is caught BANGING his FRIEND's WIFE??? The gospel industry in general is very judgemental, they look down on people who don't sing gospel or if others who r in other genres sing gospel. But yet he can do what he want to do? AND I know this is true because...let me stop. I just have a problem with people doing wrong but they are quick to call others out. Get outta here with that...
honestly fucken hate christians not all but a large percentage of them muthafuckas. honestly i would never get married because u get tired of banging the same bitch every night. also another thing that gets me about these godamn jesus christ groupies whenever something bad goes wrong in their life they wanna blame satan, thats like a muthafucka killing his whole family blaming it on the devil. in all words fuck these damn chrisitans
Tennessee8, Tye's wife cheated. Tye cheated. Does it matter who did it first? It is wrong for them both to go outside the marriage. I think it is wrong to say Tye need a divorce. Let them figure that out without others interferring. They can still work that out. I have a problem with people preaching dont sleep around, dont buy diddy's clothing, dont play R&B music...but they do it. Looka here...people do wrong all the time and everyone have faults. that's all. but dont call others out and you doing what others do.
@ Tastysis im just venting out my anger. i just find christians not all very annoying especially when they try to force they religion on others by saying "if u dont accept jesus christ as your lord and and savior then u are going to hell" my grandma instilled that shit in me thats why i got baptized because she kept scaring me with that shit
I love the way we Christian, well so called 'Christians' love to throw the whole we r all humans and none is perfect mess...WE r called to live a faithful and righteous life, WE r suppose to be different. The world should be able to distinguish between a Christina and a non-believer. Honestly this hurts; I thought Da Truth was one of the few who actually lived by what he preaches? You can't even blame some of the negative comments being posted about Christian's. The bible is clear the gate to Heaven is narrow, and only the remnant shall enter.
Ur a mess! Lmao! I'm happy ur on here today as well, and Ill tell everyone the wedding is back on! Anyway I think the catholic church is the biggest sesspool of them all! But its my opinion! Hey MsCali!
MR TYE TYE IS SWEETER THAN COTTON CANDY AT A CARNIVAL. IN FACT, HE LOOKS LIKE HE BELONGS IN A CARNIVAL...HIS WIFE NEEDED VIRILITY IN HER LIFE...SHE'S TIRED OF ALL THE SOFTNESS YOU CAN PLAINLY SEE IN THIS IN-THE-CLOSET DUDE. HE NEEDS TO GO FIND HIMSELF A MAN!! THAT NEGROID DEFINITIELY HAS A SWEET TOOTH FOR PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCO.
I'm not suprised, but how did that little hobbit Kirk Franklin still around? He was sleeping around with prostitutes and passing out drunk on top of them and Donnie McClurkin was sleeping with men, and BeBe Winans was giving his wife knuckel sandwiches. So nothing these gospel artist do shocks me.
Listen folks this aint no surprise I've been raised in the church all my life and church folks is worst then regular folks you'll think this is bad you need to see the drama in mine....
Somebody seriously need to write a real tell all book about what goes on in churches cause the stuff youll report on Media aint nothing compared to what really goes on in da pews..."LET THE CHURCH SAY AAAAAMMMMEEENNNNN". And since I know soooo much let me be the one to write it....HA!
People are human no one is exempt from sin at all. The point is to pick yourself up and continue to serve the lord in everything we do. For the ppl saying my grams or mother scared me into being baptized with threats of going to hell. You r suppose to have great fear of God and you will go to hell. People think God doesnt know when someone is trying to manipulate him he is God not some idiot you can lie to. He knows whats written on our hearts.
Damn..I knew when i first seen Tyes wife on tv a few years ago that she looked like the type a girl who would cheat on him. She is fine and sexy as hell..too fine to be faithful to this ugly ass rat face ni*ga. Its a given that when u see a pretty girl with an ugly guy can bet that he's ballin. Paybacs a bitch tho Tye..u black ass alien

are u saying that Christians are of another species other than human? last I know Christians also have flesh. Yes Christians are to live a faithful and righteous life but they aint perfect by a long shot and should not make themselves out to be. And if you have never sinned in your life than I'll take 2 steps back and make way for you.
We all heard about Donnie having sexual relations with men. O.k. but he stopped (claims he did) which was the right thing to do homesexuality is a desire not they way ppl are born. And the bible calls for us all to control our desires not indulge them and use God as an excuse "God understands" give me a break he understands he said not to be gay and the enemy filled your hearts and minds with excuse after excuse. So at least Donnie is taking the steps to make sure his soul will be saved. How many of you can say the same???
Well honestly nothing surprises me anymore if a mother will sell her 5 year old for prostitution and a father will blow his sons head off because he was inappropriate with a child, is this really that shocking? I love God, but I dont go to church too much drama, some of the women there worse than your everyday corner hooker staring at my hubby like hes filet mignon, the preacher contradicting himself no thank you, but I still love the Lord nothing will change that. Problem is these artist are called to this ministry and people may come to God thru them and now feel like they are nothing more than a hypocrite. This is a sad testimony and very disappointing, Tye have to nerve to cheat on his beautiful wife looking like a fruity buck toothed donkey, and now shes returned the favor with Da truth, which I'm sure a lot of young people like and listen to his music. My point is dont look to man, they will let you down and be accountable for your own salvation.
Now Im not trying to judge anyone but so far this is what we know
James Cleveland....child molester/gay
and these are the ones we know about, hopefully they have truly repented
And David was an adulterer, Peter was a traitor. The list goes on. Every single human, whether in the bible or today, is flawed. They are all loved by God as his creations and can all be used as ways to get to know Christ. I hope everyone hear doesn't make the same mistake I did and turn away from the church because of the actions of human beings.
As someone who knows Manny personally, I will say that this has been a very unfortunate situation, both for Manny and his family, and the church of Jesus Christ. Manny is repentant and is now going through the process of restoration, not to music or ministry, but restoration back to his wife and church. Manny will probably admit to being a hypocrite in this situation. We all have been at points in our lives. I pray that God would still be glorified, even in this situation. Hopefully, this situation will stand as a reminder to those who profess to know Christ, that sin is dangerous.
Please!! We all know some of this biggest man whores are in the church. Plus I am tired of people exploited Church (financially) pimping our people and doing dumb sh*t like dis!! which is some b*llshit. Get it together you holly"er" than thow Christians. geeez!
This is just something that lets me know that theses people are human. No body is perfect and just because they are Christians does not mean they are Christ... knowing that they too have imperfections allows me to feel better in Christ and that my humane inequities are just mistakes of the flesh... thee devil can sometimes come into your life and take u by surprise,... but to understand you are wrong and ask for forgiveness is all there is to do.. The woman are just as wrong but just as human as anyone... Forgiveness is the key
after reading these blogs its atrip to see how people thik of Christians. No one is perfect but if you are walkn wit CHrist the thing is to try to walk like him but it seems to me that most people think we are supposed to be Christ... Yes we spread the word and yes we try to have as many people become Christians as God allows but Jesus Christ does this mean that they are exempt from mistakes... No! but it does mean that from reading this: people lookup to Christians weather they admit it or not so for their mistakes to be broadcasted is basically telling people that they can make mistakes.
Don't be shocked! Christians are humans who choose to STRIVE for perfection according to the Word of God, it it could be achieved without Jesus,then Christians wouldn't need Him! Is this behavior right? NO! NO! NO! not for Christians or non-Christians!
See emmettmays85, that sh1t will turn folks against the church, but dont turn away from God, from what it sounds like you hard a ruff childhood and sometime people cant understand that if there is a God why would he let things happen to them but you are probably stronger for the things you went thru.
This is the devils playground.. due to mistakes people are able to turn theier backs and talk soo badly about God's people all are sinners... remember that... That is why we are able to repent.. But to go in on this situation is saying that u don't believe a soul can be saved and that believers are lyers.. No they are human beings!!
JESUS the devil is sooo happy right now he just won some souls
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY PEOPLE ARE SO QUICK TO BASH THE CHURCH BECAUSE OF AN INDIVIDUALS SIN? IF YOUR CHURCH IS SO CURRUPTED FIND ONE THAT ISNT...TURNING AWAY FROM THE CHURCH IS JUST A TRICK OF THE ENEMY..JESUS SAID THE CHURCH IS HIS BRIDE..HE WANTS US TO GO TO CHURCH..GET IT TOGETHER PEOPLE IM SICK OF HEARING THIS IS WHY I DONT GO TO CHURCH...SO WORRIED ABOUT THE NEXT PERSONS SIN YOU GET LOST IN YOUR OWN..PEOPLE USE ANY EXCUSE
ANOTHER THING FOR THE PEOPLE SAYING CHURCHES PIMP...THE BIBLE SAID TO GET THE LORD 10 PERCENT OF YOUR INCREASE BUT MOST PEOPLE ARE SO WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THE PASTOR IS GOING TO DO WITH THEIR MONEY..THATS NOT YOUR $ THATS GODS MONEY..I DONT CARE WHAT HE DOES WIT MY $ THATS THEIR JOB..AND ITS OUR JOB TO PAY 10 PERCENT ...YOU ROB GOD WHEN YOU DONT PAY YOUR TITHES...A THIEF CANNOT ENTER INTO HEAVEN
THE FACT IS IF YOU CALL YOURSELF REPRESENTING THE MOST HIGH, YOU NEED TO BE HELD TO A STANDARD AND YOU NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUTABLE
yes I agree Triplesixcharter, you are held to a higher standard when you're out there representing Jesus in the pulpit, look at Jimmy Swaggart getting head from prostitues while driving, Jim Baker robbing the church blind, Most of these mega pastors I have heard something negative about from cheating, homsexuality, stealing and extortion, if we say these things are acceptable whats next MURDER???
@mediaTOaddict and YohiNesZDaKween I'm not here to rag on pastors, but this is scandalous, these artist and pastors are no better than Tyrone or Shay that are doing the same thing, just not screaming Jesus and holding a Bible in their hands while doing it, thats why you dont see ME up there tryna to minister because I have plenty of flaws, I am not perfect and would not want to lead any one astray. True the Bible says we all have sinned and become short in the glory of God, but Jesus is not to be mocked and I'm sure he will hold them accountable for leading his sheep astray, weren't these people called upon by God to minister?? If not they have no business preaching or singing, there are snakes in the pulpit!!
and mediaTOaddict, seriously thats why I said I hope they repented, I do believe that they will be forgiven by the most high if they truly mean it.
I had no idea that there was drama going on between Da Truth and Tye Tribbett like that! Tye always had a strange vibe about him, I should had known. The sad thing is that my daughter is a classmate of his nephew,I know that he got to be embarrassed by his uncle being on gossip blogs online for infidelity. Tye has a beautiful wife and had cheated on her,YUCK! I always thought that he was not attractive. Gospel entertainers sure are going through controversy; Pastor Marvin Winans beat his wife down months ago.
@ Sexymom ibelieve in god true enough but i just dont believe in having the same religion as my enemies. they caused me too much grief in my life. its so funny how some blacks call say they cant stand white people and that the white man is the devil yet say they love jesus . dont they know thats how black people became christian because they slave master(aka the white man) forced it on them
It is humurous how "Christians" say that they are not to be judged, when they go around calling everybody else lost souls and demons!
I don't think anybody is upset about the infedelity, its just that when you ( as most Christians) make it a point to claim yourselves to be moral authorities, and constantly condemn the lifestyles of others, then you yourself should reflect that standard.
No one expects you to be perfect, but it seems that y'all are guilty of some of the most scandalous scenarios of all!
And the bible does not call for Christians to condemn and concentrate on the sins ofnon-believers, but to monitor the behaviors of each other!
If you all would concentrate more on the happenings of the Body of Christ as opposed to swarming gossip sites, and youtube. Maybe you wouldnt come across as so fradulent, and hypocritical.
Tye Tribbet is a perfect example...
On another note what is "DaGospelTruth"-a gospel oriented website?
SMH-not a good look
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Jesus died on the cross for all of our sins....all of them. Nobodys perfect and God knows that he is God. The blood that Jesus shed on the cross washes away all sin.
THEY ARE NOT GOD THEY ARE HUMANS NOT PERFECT THEY WILL MAKE MISTAKES TOO AND HAVE TO ANSWER FOR THEM..I STILL COMMEND THEM FOR DOING GOSPEL...PEOPLE SIN EVERYDAY BUT DO THE DEILS WORK NOT GOD WORK IM NOT JUDGING THEM YES IT WAS WRONG BUT HE IS HUMAN
The "they are human" defense is a cop out and the reason why a lot of people have a bad taste in their mouth about organized religion, mostly because these so-called "Christians" are the first ones to call someone out about their wrong doing until they're the ones caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Then they want to go "we all make mistakes" or "God knows my heart." Everyone wants to quote "he without sin . . .", but don't realize that half the time they're the main ones casting the damn stones.
@longhairdontcare I'm so glad you commented about people saying that's why I don't go to church cause the people in the church are the worse ones. I know their are crooked people every where, but I try to do what I'm suppose to do. We are not responsible for anyone else but ourselves. And the people saying this are just making up an excuse not to go to church. Which God would find as not a good reason. I've heard this too many time...I can sit home and read my Bible and listening to gospel music, but can you sit at home and still get paid at work by typing on your computer and sitting at a..
@longhairdontcare cont. desk? No you can not, so these people need to go to the Lord's House. I mean if you can go to the club or shopping on your off days, then you can go to church and don't worry about what other people are doing cause no one is perfect. Longhairdontcare you brought out a very good point, thanks girl. Cause I get so tired of hearing people saying that mess.
"screaming Jesus and holding a Bible in their hands" THE POINT IS THEY PRAISE JESUS THO!
"I have plenty of flaws, I am not perfect and would not want to lead any one astray. True the Bible says we all have sinned and become short in the glory of God, but Jesus is not to be mocked and I'm sure he will hold them accountable for leading his sheep astray, weren't these people called upon by God to minister?" IF THEY WERE CALLED UPON BY GOD HE KNEW THEIR MISTAKES BEFORE THEY WERE MADE!! GOD HAS ORDAINED THEM FOR A REASON PEOPLE ARE QUICK TO GIVE UP ON GOD.. U R A SMART WOMAN THO!
EVERYBODY KEEP SAYIN GHOW CHRISTAINS MAKE THEM FEEL LIKE THEY THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS. ITS NOT THAT ITS JUST THAT WE HAVE FAITH EVERYHTING IN OUR WORLD IS OK AND THAT GOD WILL MAKE IT IN HIS WAY AT HIS TIME AND NOT ON OUR TIME....
AND PAYING TITHES HELPS KEEPS THE LIGHTS ON AT YOUR CHURCH HELPS BUY THE INSTRUMENTS HELPS BUY THE FANS, AND THE EXTRA BIBLES, HELPS KEEP THE PROPS FOR CHRISTMAS PLAYS, AND KEEPS THE CHURCHES UP TO PAR...ETC JUST LIKE WHEN U CROSS THE BRIDGE AND HAVE TO PAY YOUR TOLL. THATS WHAT KEEPS THE BRIDGES CLEAN AND SAFE AND NOT FALLN APART...
People tend to forget the fact that THEY ARE HUMANS FIRST!!! EVERYBODY falls short of God and lives in sin. THEY made their mistakes, now they just have to forget and forgive---that's the Godly thing to do, since they preach it all the time.
yes only God can judge but come on saints of God we have to stop making these mistakes, when God blesses us with the opportunity to advance in our dreams you cant take him for granted bcuz he is forgiving. we are the salt and light to the world and we have to set the standards. Otherwise how can we enhance God's kingdom, be encouraged Tye.
This is the problem w/ so-called religious, "godly" ppl... instead of being decent humans beings on their own, they need a divine being to tell them if their actions are right or wrong. They are taught to fear the consequences of their actions and that's what keeps most of these braindead, religious idiots in check. Fearing consequences doeasn't make you good, it makes you a cowardice slave.
If there is no judge (divine or of this earth, ie the law), what would most of these braindead idiots who seek to please themselves do? But thank goodness there are judges and there are consequences, so these animals can continue doing wtf thet want b/c all they have to do is repent... sumit or be saved.
submit* Most (so-called) religious ppl always fail to measure up because they aren't taught the true meaning of being human... humanity... empathy. Putting themselves in another's shoe before taking action doesn't work, so they need to be threatened into behaving like a dog. lol How pathetic!
singing gospel and being in the church doesn't make anyone a christian anymore than singing hiphop makes anyone a christan. a tree is known by it's fruit. if you don't practice what you preach you are a hypocrite and you are what you eat. that's why it seems that the church is a turn off to many today because folk that don't go to church know a lot of bad things about folk that are in the church. But let me assure you all this, if you see and hear anybody professing one thing and living another they are wolves in sheep clothing okay. they do not belong to the Lord.
This comes to no surprise to me. The days when "christians" at least made a concerted effort to "practice what they represent and preach" are long gone!!

I kno I am going to hell in a handbag, so I just fuck out of wedlock , No sense in pretending and ppl have to understand, I fuck mentally disable and emotional men, so I don't have to worry about them cheating, ladies crooked dick is the best dick, they put in so much effort and plus it's not hard to get them to eat ur ass either, esp homeless men...
This is why I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Savior. He knew I would fall short, He knew I would mess up, He knew I would hate, lie, steal, kill, fornicate, lust, smoke, drink, covet, envy, sex, suck, $uck, the list goes on and on and on BUT YET, He still loves me and continually "woo" me and decided He rather go to Hell for me than live without me. This is the reason He came to set the captives free, to heal the broken-hearted and save a SINNER LIKE ME!!! Thank you JESUS!!! I'm not perfect but I am forgiven from past present and future sends!!! AMEN!! Hallelujah!!
Haha yall talk about Riri for wearing horns for a promo (meaning there were people who told her what 2 wear) & when this slimeball does this yall have nothing 2 say cause he's a gospel singer? Lmao! I swear this is why I'm not Christian. The worst!
Amazing Grace - you are completely correct about your statements about the love of Jesus C hrist in our lives. Past, present and future. The thing we have to learn is to PUT THE FLESH UNDER.. We just realize that every sin we openly commit does hurt the heart of God and we have to repent daily of our sins and TRY to live in the law of love. We are strong Christians - not weak - and there must come a day when we say "NO" and mean it - run from sin and not give in. Unfortunately, our lives are the example of the walking Bible others might not ever see. We are held to a higher standard - Yes,
Thats crazy, just cus they preach the word doesn't mean they are "godly" people. One of the reasons I don't go to church, I don't believe in a lot of these peoples. You got priest molesting kids, taking money from the collection plate, sometimes they are worst than politicians. I rather have my 1 on 1 with God personally then sit down and hear someone's false teaching. just my opinion
WOW...NOT A GOOD LOOK FOR CHRISTIANS, THE SAD TRUTH IS NOW PPL ARE GOING TO START STEREOTYPING ALL CHRISTIANS AS HYPOCRITES
I AM A FIRM BELIEVER MYSELF, BUT I AM NOT PERFECT AND NIETHER ARE THESE PPL
IF GOD CAN FORGIVE THEM, THEN MTO CAN TOO
THE BIBLE SAYS
"YOUR SINS SHALL SEEK YOU OUT",..
AND THEIRS HAS
TO EVERYONE ELSE,
DRAW CLOSE TO GOD AND DO NOT BE DECIEVED...
We all are human, but sleeping with
your friends wife, that's a whole other
bowl of grains. Now suppose the wife had
a disease, then Tye Tribett could have
gotten something. Condom's break why are
people sleeping around like its Okay !!!!
I have read everyone's post on here, and I think it's interesting how quick people judge other people as soon as they fall down. The last time I checked God was the only perfect being in all of existence. Our sinful nature is the very reason He sent Christ Jesus to die on the cross for our sins; ALL of our sins. Whether you are a follower of Christ or not, none of us have place to judge anyone. We need to judge and evaluate our own selves because we all know right from wrong to some degree. And when our lives have to come to their end, we ALL will stand before the judgement seat of Christ.
