Without Walls International Church senior pastor Paula White and worldwide televangelist and faith healer Benny Hinn posted statements on their websites recently denying a National Enquirer report that they are romantically involved.
White, who could not be reached for comment at her Tampa church, called the article “misguided and untruthful” in the statement.
“The publication, which is known for its bias and slanting of the truth, tries to mislead readers regarding the ministerial relationship and friendship I have had with Pastor Benny for over 20 years,” she wrote.
The article appears in the Aug. 2 issue of the tabloid, now on newsstands. It includes photos identified as Hinn and White holding hands on a supposed “romantic trip to Rome.”
Hinn’s statement, directed to “my precious partner,” said he “forcefully, categorically and absolutely renounce(s) the lies that have been spread about me and want to set the record straight with you. There is nothing inappropriate or morally improper about my friendship with Paula White. There has been no immorality whatsoever!”
