Gospel Superstar, Tye Tribbett, finally broke his one year silence about the extra-marital affair that was speculated to have led to the demise of his group G.A. and almost ended his 11 year marriage to wife, Shante. Tye Tribbett struggled with is voice during the interview due to hoarseness but he was very transparent in his revelation. He described the reason he cheated was “being drawn away by his own lust” and being insecure. “I aint start getting cute until I started getting money”, Tribbett said with a hint of laughter. “I wanted attention.. looked for it and prepared for it even while I was getting it from my wife, but it wasn’t enough”. Tribbett named Bishop George Searight, Pastor Ken Robinson and Joyce Meyer as people that gave spiritual guidance to the couple during their restoration process. “I heard Joyce Meyer say that lust has no conscience”, said Tribbett. He also said that his wife fell to the same sin but did not go into detail he and wife Shante are in a “surreal place” and they pray more than ever before.
With regards to the group that made him famous, G.A. (Greater Anointing), he said the reason he ended the group had nothing to do with his extra-marital affair, but more to do with prayer. On day 50 of a prayer sabbatical, God revealed to him that he is doing a new thing…a fresh thing in his life. Thus the title of his new single “Fresh”. “The hardest thing was releasing my mom as my manager and no longer ministering with G.A. but death to something brings life to something else”.
