First the domestic violence and now her home! According to the Associated Press, the televangelist, who was allegedly beaten and stomped by her husband in a hotel parking lot, is about to lose her home in Ware County, Ga. Bynum’s house, owned by her company Juanita Bynum Ministries Incorporated, will be auctioned off next month unless she can pay nearly $39,000 in back taxes, interests and penalties, reports AP. Ware County Tax Commissioner Steve Barnard told The Florida Times-Union that the home has already been advertised among the houses up for sale at the county courthouse on Nov. 6th. Barnard says the property tax bill on the house is $32,007.56 and Bynum must also pay more than $6,944 in interest, penalties and costs. Barnard said someone from Bynum’s Waycross office called and asked how to resolve the matter. The caller agreed to pay $25,000 on the tax bill and the remainder before the tax sale, “but so far we’ve gotten only $5,000,” he said. According to tax records, the 6,748-square-foot house sits on more than 23 acres. Because Bynum does not live there, the house does not qualify for homestead exemption. Her Waycross-based ministry bought the house August 18th, 2006. Meanwhile, Bynum has filed for divorce from her husband, Bishop Thomas W. Weeks, who is accused of beating her in the parking lot of an Atlanta hotel. Weeks has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and making terroristic threats. He’s currently free on $40,000 bond and is not allowed to have contact with Bynum.
