Fox 5 is reporting that Bishop Thomas Weeks was in huge financial deficits prior to the alleged attack of his wife, gospel singer Juanita Bynum. FOX 5 News uncovered court documents that show Weeks led a ministry in D.C. called, Center of Hope Community Development Corporation. Court records reveal a $63,000 judgment against Weeks from copier giant, Xerox Corporation, a $22,000 judgment against Weeks from jewelry store Tiffany and Company, a $13,000 judgment from a credit card company and a $6,000 judgment from Ford Motor Credit. Combined, Weeks owes more than $100,000 in judgments. Three of the creditors say he has yet to pay the debt. Family members have confirmed to FOX 5 that Weeks and Bynum began leasing a $2.5 million home with six bedrooms in the St. Marlo golf community in Forsyth County in early 2006. Earlier this summer, a court gave the order to serve an eviction notice. Dispossessory documents dated for June 26, 2007 indicate Weeks owed $54,000 in past due rent at the luxury home, the station reported. According to the eviction notice issued at the magistrate court in Forsyth County, when deputies went to Weeks’ home to serve the eviction notice, Weeks and all of his furniture were gone. A source familiar with the housing arrangement told FOX 5 News that after Weeks defaulted on the first contract, he made a payment toward the debt and entered into a new contract agreement to buy the high-end home by April of 2008. Weeks is facing assault charges for allegedly beating his estranged wife in the parking lot of the Renaissance Hotel, located near the Atlanta airport.
