Powerball winner Marie Holmes became infamous for bailing out her boyfriend Lamarr “Hot Sauce” McDow four separate times. Now the lotto winner is being sued by her pastor for allegedly not fulfilling an oral agreement to give him $1.5 million to build a retreat facility.  This Pastor, Kevin Matthews, is apparently off his medication.  No one owes him any money for anything.  Too many of these “pastors” are after money and will do anything to get it.  According to Black America Web:

The 27-year-old mother of two took home a $127 million lump sum payment following her lottery win in February, 2015.

Pastor Kevin Matthews says he is experiencing emotional and mental distress due to her backing down from a verbal contract they had regarding $1.5 million to purchase land to build a retreat facility.

“Because of the emotional distress and mental stress, they put me through, I had to start taking more medicine for anxiety and depression due to this situation,” says Pastor Kevin Matthews.

Holmes’ attorney, Ruth Sheehan, of The Francis Law Firm, said she was not aware of the situation or the lawsuit. In a recent interview with EURweb, Pastor Matthews says: “God led him to her house and he prayed with her.”

He later met Holmes and ministered to her on several occasions at her new home. He also said he ministered to three other people at her home, and then he eventually asked her to consider giving him money to purchase land to build a retreat. He gave her three different amounts that he needed ($1 million, $1.5 million and $2 million). After several meetings, she agreed to give him $1.5 million to help purchase land to build a retreat center that he says he had been praying about for years.


  1. IMO, Pastor Matthews is impugning the spirit of Christ. If God led him to Holmes’ house, then God would lead Holmes to purchase land and donate it to the church. But, the Pastor wants the money in his hand, and that is not how God works.

    • Exactly!!! Far too many of these wolves in sheep clothing are seeking the hand of God and not His face. Fortunately… their motives are becoming clearer and clearer. Unfortunately… many are still falling for their trickery which comes in many forms. So sad. Perhaps they will institutionalize this clown since he is suffering from so much “emotional distress and mental stress”.

      • So many people depend on pastors to teach them the nature and ways of Christ. So, when pastors tell them that God told them something, or led them to someone, they seldom question it. Who the Son sets free is free indeed, and no one should be manipulated by being told that God led them to the person for anything that serves solely their benefit. If God wanted that pastor to have the money, he would have given him the winning lottery numbers. 🙂

      • That’s why the word says
        2Timothy 2:15 says “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” If not, you will be fooled everytime. I remember someone telling me that the Lord had told her to tell me something. I immediately told her that that was strange. She asked me why. I told her that the Lord had just told me to ask her when
        did he tell her that. She shut up. Boom……….


  2. There are too many of these hypocrite vultures out there. Ridiculous. Praying and visiting is a pastors JOB, not to go begging money then sue when it doesn’t come. If that were the case, many of us would be in the poor house for absent mindedly filling in donation forms when we were children!

  3. Wow, the fact that he had the audacity to sue over a verbal agree that its apparent he set up is beyond ridiculous. Who ask for that kind of money from someone and had the nerve to put God’s name on it. Just crazy!
