[The Sun] Disgraced pastor Carl Lentz was allegedly caught having sex with a young celebrity by his dog walker, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
Lee Martin, who was the Lentz family dog walker in New York for many years, says he walked into the apartment and heard the pair having sex in one of the bedrooms.
He then saw megachurch pastor Carl and the star — whom The Sun has decided not to name — come out of the apartment “looking flushed.”
“They lived in a building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where I had the majority of my dog walking business,” Lee told The Sun.
“I walked into the house one day to walk their dog and I didn’t see or hear any people in the apartment at first.
“So I took it that no one was there and went in and got their dog on a leash.
“And as I went to exit the apartment, I walked past the bedroom and I heard sex noises – it definitely sounded like two people were having sex.
“I was kind of shocked but I do walk into stuff like this quite a lot.
“I knew that I wasn’t supposed to be there because nobody would be making those kinds of noises if they knew someone was around.
“When I walked out of the door, I accidentally let the door close behind me too loud.
“And so by the time I made it to the elevator, Carl and the star were right behind me.
“He didn’t look me in the eye, and didn’t talk to me or acknowledge me, which was very unlike him.
“They both seemed kind of flushed – like they had been having sex.
“I didn’t see into the bedroom but I know what I heard and I believe what I heard was Carl and the celebrity having sex with each other.”
Lee said there was a significant age gap between the pair, with the star being much younger than the pastor.
He said he only told a few close friends about the November 2014 incident, and didn’t consider coming forward about it out of respect for his client’s privacy.
However he said he changed his mind after hearing Carl had been fired from the Hillsong Church for inappropriate behavior.
The hipster pastor was formally sacked by Hillsong, a church founded in Australia, for a “revelation of moral failures,” according to a statement sent to church members on November 4.
The 42-year-old admitted being unfaithful to his wife in an Instagram post on November 5 – a day after he was fired.
New York designer Ranin Karim, 34, exclusively told The Sun to she had a six-month affair with Lentz, who is married to Laura Lentz, 40, and has three children: Ava, 16, Charlie, 14, and Roman, 11.
An insider has since told The Sun that at least three more women have come forward to claim they had an affair with him – as part of Hillsong’s investigation.
“I always found he kind of put out this manipulative, almost grooming vibe,” Lee said.
“And I started to look at his interactions with people over the years, videos and pictures and things, and it just seemed inappropriate for a pastor.
“I would see him parading around the neighborhood with his shirt off, wearing thousand dollar leather pants, on an electric scooter, smoking an electric cigarette. It just doesn’t seem like a pastor at all.
“I always had a weird vibe about him and then after I heard the allegations against him and watched videos of him it started to hit me that maybe I need to come forward with this story to help other people who might have had similar experiences.
“I feel like the story here is that Carl Lentz is a super manipulative man, who puts out this sex vibe thats inappropriate for a pastor, and who has celebrities and young people hanging off his arm and listening to his every word.
“The church has a policy against sex outside of marriage.
“So he’s telling people how they should live their life, but doing whatever he wants in his own life.”
Lee said Carl used to make him feel uncomfortable, as he was always trying to pressure him into coming to their church.
“There was always a group of celebrities and model-looking type people, all wearing expensive black clothes, hanging in the lobby of this building trying to get people to come in,” he said.
“I remember him with a blonder, taller guy. And he had that guy stand next to me in the elevator and say, ‘Why don’t you come to our church?’ And I was like, ‘Well, I’m just not interested, I have my own beliefs that are working for me, but thanks’.
“And he replied, ‘Don’t you know who this is? This guy has changed so many people’s lives. You’re really wasting an opportunity.’
“And they really tried to make me feel guilty for being ungrateful.
“This was at least a dozen times that I had to have this conversation with either Carl or one of his followers.
“Other times girls would show up at the building in tears because they couldn’t find where the latest service was taking place – they would move around a lot at that time. It was almost like an addiction for these people.”
Lee said he also had a number of other “uneasy interactions” with Carl and his family during the time he worked for him.
“For a number of months, they didn’t have me to walk their dogs – they traveled a lot and things,” he said.
“Then when I started walking their dog again I saw they had got rid of their old dog and got a new one that looked similar.
“But when I asked them, they said it was the same dog. I knew it wasn’t – it was just weird behavior.
“He was just always very pushy towards me.
“I remember one time he was looking at me and saying ‘You must make a lot of money walking dogs, what do you make about $100,000 a year? I felt like he was sizing me up.
“It made me feel uncomfortable – that and the fact he would not take no for an answer for me to come to his church really was off putting to me a lot of the time.
“I was certainly not surprised when I heard he had been fired. I feel there will be more people who will come forward with allegations when they read this.”
The Sun reached out to a representative for Carl Lentz for comment.

[Optional] What is the most disturbing part of this story?
I don’t think it’s Bieber because they don’t usually put the person on the front picture.. but that one photo of him & Bieber where he’s shirtless and his shorts are so low his junk is about to pop out is totally revolting. Yuk
I would say it was J.B. there are predictors and they know who to seek out. Gomez seems to street smart after all she was dating the weeknd and broke his heart. She is hardcore so I would say Justin was the pastor victim. Whomever it is, sad in any case.
They could have just been having a mutual jerk session. You know ” coming for a higher power.”
Why are the rich so susceptible?
I’ll go with Beiber
Bad News Pearl says
Ha! Would you Bieber it?
Switching out the dogs was awful! What happened to the poor original ones?? How very sleazy of the pastor and I’m not too imoressed with the dog walker either, as he said nothing to anyone about the dog situation.
It wouldn’t be Burberry, otherwise his picture would not be part of the presentation. It would be too obvious a clue. So, you’d have to think of an associate of Bieber.
Annasophia Robb! She attended Hillsong and, stayed in the same building as Carl Lentz in Williamsburg.
The dog switching comment. Asking people how much money they make.
I am getting the vibe that this is a male celebrity. Maybe the “pastor” was working a blackmail angle? Was it Bieber? I think the dog walker would have given that tip to one of the UK papers for money so probably not.
What is disturbing is the fact that this guy preyed on young people…and he has kids of his own.
Either Bieber or that Baldwin trick he is married to
No idea but she is a victim of wanting to fit in most likely.
As someone who is a Christian and gone to one church or another for 43 years let me clear a few things up so if you are experiencing them you can get new friends or a new church immediately:
-Churches aren’t clubs you belong to
-They aren’t for the “cool kid”
-You don’t go to church to be the like the pastor or be near him or lucky enough to be invited by him
-Pastors aren’t perfect but they certainly don’t cheat on their…
No idea about the celebrity but it tells you a lot when the church becomes more about the pastor and less about Jesus.
The obvious choice is Beiber as the gender is not specified. Could also be Hailey?
The most disturbing part of this story is the photo of him with his shorts held up by his * and walking next to poor old vulnerable Biebs. Hope the ‘pastor’ goes behind bars, sounds like he is no different from other abusers of young vulnerable folk.
Bieber no? Who else.
Hailee Steinfeld would have been 17/18 in 2014
Who is the celeb: not sure , could be anyone
What is the most disturbing part of this story? Nothing … same story for the millionth time just different players
Hmmmm could be Selena? Maybe that broke her & Beiber up? Carl didn’t want Justin to marry Baldwin girl so maybe her? Most disturbing part is these so called religious leaders manipulate people for money and sex.
Raoul Duke says
Everything about it, my faith is in the middle and * like this turns me away from it or being involved. It’s social climbing, hypocrisy and everything I detest. It makes me think people who go to mega/celebrity churches just don’t get it.
Nothing indicates that Pastor Lentz dabbles in men, so I’ll guess that it was Selena Gomez.
Optnl: the betrayal of trust.
Selena Gomez OR Justin Bieber OR Vanessa Hudgens OR Nick Jonas
Hillsong is a CULT. Some people are easily led.
I’m getting Bieber vibes here.
But I also think this could be Selena Gomez.
Omg, was it Bieber? Bieber’s wife? Selena?
The most disturbing part is that the preacher man just waltzed out with his conquest and didn’t just stay in the room. Then he kept trying to get the dog walker to join the cult, wanted to know his finances, ugh, was he hitting on the dog walker too? This preacher has always kinda disgusted me.
Selena Gomez or Kylie Jenner
Justin Bieber????????? I really hope not.
The worst of the story is that this evil, manipulative man is clearly a Satanist but has put himself in the position of a pastor in order to stray people from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am so happy he is being exposed for the monster he is.
I think the blind itself is so ‘vanilla’ not noting male or female, that I’m going with another male.
Justin Beiber. Its well known they were very close and I wouldn’t be surprised at all. That kid had (has) a lot of problems going back and I can easily see him being taken advantage of like that.
Most disturbing part of this story? The fact that Carl didn’t seem to care he got caught if he managed to catch up to him at the elevator. That’s some ‘fast work’!
Poor celeb. She probably got confused when someone told her she needed a douche.
Honey, you never need a douche of anydouble.
Hmm the fact that they have been so emphatic about not revealing the sex of the celebrity makes me think we shouldn’t assume they are female.
A young male celebrity would surely be more scandalous for a married pastor.
On that basis, I’ll say Bieber.
The whole thing is gross.
