Justin and Hailey Bieber 'cut all ties' with pastor Carl Lentz as 'shocked' stars unfollow ex-mentor in cheating scandal

JUSTIN and Hailey Bieber have cut ties with their former close pal, Carl Lentz, following the cheating pastor’s affair being exposed, The Sun can exclusively report. 

After shocking details of the former Hillsong leader’s infidelity came to light, the pop star and his model wife are “distancing themselves” as the “irreparable damage” has been done. 

Both Justin, 26, and Hailey, 23, are “shocked” and “furious” by Carl’s secret romance with Ranin, The Sun can exclusively reveal. 

A source close to the Bieber’s said: “Carl’s cheating has caused irreparable damage with many people he was close with, including Justin and Hailey. 

“They were both extremely shocked and disappointed when Carl’s confession came out.”

However, the insider dished that while Hailey “quickly became furious” with the pastor’s cheating, Justin was “sympathetic to the man who had helped him so much.”

The Sorry singer has credited Carl in the past with helping him overcome his own struggles with relationships and also with drug abuse. 

However, the informant added: “After talking with Hailey, who has become really close with Laura [Lentz] over the years, they’re both going to keep their distance from Carl. 

“Justin and Hailey are both very good friends with Laura too and consider her family. 

“Their heart is with her and their kids right now but they just feel sad about the whole situation.” 

Justin unfollowed his mentor on Instagram today while the supermodel severed their social media relationship earlier this week. 

The superstar couple has been friends with the Lentz family for years – with Carl and wife Laura even attending the Bieber’s wedding in 2019. 

Hailey and Laura are often seen together on social media, where as the boys Justin and Carl have appeared inseparable over the years. 

The Yummy crooner wrote a lengthy note on Instagram earlier this year that confessed to “drug abuse” which began at age 19. 

He then talked about how he "abused all of my relationships” and that his fame and fortune led to him being"resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry.”

Justin moved in with Carl for several week in 2014 for an “informal detox” and to become "refocused on his religious faith.”

He then credited Carl and his now-wife, whom he said helped him “turn his life around.”

In the years since, Carl and Justin are regularly spotted together and the hit maker appeared to become close to the fired church leaders three children. 

As The Sun exclusively reported yesterday, Laura was also fired from her job as a lead Hillsong pastor due to her husband-of-17-years affair. 

Hillsong announced last Wednesday the famous Christian figure was no longer a member of the church due to “moral failures” and “breach of trust.”

In a statement posted one day later, Justin Bieber’s pal admitted he was unfaithful but assured fans he was “building back trust in his marriage.”

Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively spoke to Ranin, a 34-year-old designer from New York City who opened up about dating the married church leader for over five months before their emotional breakup just days ago.

She explained that the pair met in May at Domino Park in Brooklyn, New York, when he approached her to flirt and make small talk. 

However, she claimed Carl lied about his true identity and told her he was an unmarried sports agent. 

Their relationship took an explosive turn last week after she claimed Carl’s wife saw all of their messages – including "naughty photos" – which were connected to his work computer at the church office while several other co-workers were also present.
