“Marie Holmes, North Carolina’s $188 million Powerball lottery winner is back in the news again.

This time Holmes is not spending $21 million on bailing her boyfriend, Lamarr McDow, out-of-jail for the fourth time or harassing and threatening his side chick, but a pastor is allegedly suing her for $10 million for reneging on a verbal contract.

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.”

So be honest. How many of you guys thought this Pastor was black? It was a shock to us too!

What a bunch of mess. Emotional distress??

What Pastor sues a single Mother on a promise? There’s no way this case will ever see the light of day in court. Hey preacher man? Why don’t you try selling a few doughnuts and raise the money to open up the retreat yourself?

What do you all think?

Does this petty Pastor have a right to Marie’s millions because of a verbal agreement? Let us know what you guys think.

    1. R.Matthews is not a man of GOD. He’s a snake a liar and the son of all lies.He’s a convicted child molester. And not just once. He was convicted in the courts of Robeson county.

    2. I’m one of those girls I’m 32 now do you know where I can find him I want to go to his church until the congregation of his sins

      1. If your mother was honest with you and not allowing the devil to use her in this malice she has toward me, she would be truthful with you.

        I welcome a polygraph with all to check if stories are true. She has made it worse for you and I hate that. I am guilty of what I am guilty of and paid for it.

        God forgives and restores…wish people did as well. The gifts and calling are without repentance…other words God still uses when there is repentance and wrong doing so that He gets the glory.

        If you have problems, they come from your mother, but once something happen with your brother. Don’t know what…we didn’t really get into it when it happen. And don’t know if it was just that time.

        1. Are you serious right now? If she has problems it’s because of YOU. Congratulations, you found another way to make yourself despicable. I’ve never seen anything so disgusting. Do not try to defend yourself here.

        2. You disgrace to yourself and the good name of God, sir. His arm is not shortened such that he needs a trouble single mother to fund his will, given his ownership of “cattle on a thousand hills”. God have mercy on your soul. He does indeed forgive and restore. He’ll forgive, but there’s nothing here to be restored to you, only the aftermath of your actions for which to account. Pfffft.

        3. Hay un elemento que se llama pala. MUY BUENA PARA TRABAJAR. El diesmo es un fraude. El VERDADERO TEMPLO ESTÁ EN CADA SER HUMANO. CUIDADO!!!! Existe algo que se llama karma y es mucho más peligroso que el invento del infierno. Sería bueno dejar de leer tanto la Biblia y hacer cosas por la humanidad como realmente se debe. Se empieza trabajando y no siendo un pedigüeño. NADIE REDIME PECADOS CON DINERO.

        4. Kevin Matthews, I refuse to call you Pastor, you do not deserve that title. You are one which has the devil within yourself. I am a man that has not been to church in many years and hearing things like this is what keeps people like myself from wanting to give to any church . You are the cause of many other house of god lose members. If you are a true believer, you will return what you stole from her, if not we will all know the truth and I will go as far as to call for a larger and deeper investigation. Shame on you and all involved.

        5. James 5: Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. 2 Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. 4 Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. 5 You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.[a] 6 You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.

  1. I think ths is a lie and it is coming out of the mouth of a known liar. This person was my ex husband whom i divorced because he molested my children. True story he went to prison out of Robeson Cty. I have tried so many ways to let the people in his church know but he’s cunning and blocks it. He did the same thing with his. 4th wife. The woman he is married to now is his 5th. You can’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth. Wish the people of his church know they were being led by a wolf in sheeps clothes. He was assisting our pastor, when we were married and the whole time ,molesting my children.my youngest was only weeks old when he started with her, then moved on to my 7 yr. Old girl

    1. Be careful…YOUR sins will find you out. Truth will make you free. I am guilty of a lot of things as most people are in the past, but my God forgives and re-establishes again. I am free. Why are you still bringing up stuff from 25 years ago and lies on top of that. B/c the devil still has you in his grips. Not forgiveness…malice!

      Be careful what you say…there are laws against such as you are doing. And my God knows and has an account of all that is and was done. He will hold all men accountable.

      1. Pastor I think that your wrong sueing this woman God knows the truth and if I am correct he would never tell anyone to sue another person for money. If what your saying is true and God wanted you to build a retreat he would make sure that it would of been done by now. People who want things that are not of the Lord’s will not get it. Read the Bible again a pastor that I know has been doing what God wants him to do and he gets the money that he needs. You need to pray and trust in the Lord that he will do what is right. Maybe he doesn’t want you to build a retreat did you ask him? Seek and you will find knock and the door will be opened for you.

      2. Have you forgot to humble yourself before the Lord thy God, it would seem so. Remember our teacher The Christ who was favored by God above all others NEVER OWNED A THING except robes on his back and the sandals on his feet. What he did was to Glorify God can you say what you have done Glorifies the Father. Only you and God can look into your heart the only difference is you may fool yourself but you cannot fool God. Sir I am a Pastor I have never taken a dime for the guidance and the hope I have given. I do this because God told me too so I humbled myself and did as the Lord commanded. Can you say the same?

  2. He missed the sex offenders manditory registry by a year. They should make all of them register, even if it was before the registry started.

  3. God gives us all opportunities in life, and all have a calling to do something for the Kingdom of God. Miss Holmes was given an opportunity to do that and said clearly that she would. It was verified by her accountant, Dexter Perry, which we had a e3 hr. conversation about Marie and testifying how God got us to where we were. I have that all recorded. His last word to me was that I would get the money, for the MINISTRY, all legal non-profit by the state of NC, by the end of the year for tax purposes. I understand he was fired after this event.

    I have it on tape her boyfriend saying that she might come off the original amount (1.5 mil) some, which I replied “that was fine”. Only after talking to a Carmel Wheaton did I see Miss Holmes in Walmart and asked about the conversation with Carmel did Miss Holmes say that she was seeing them next week to find out what happen and get back with me. Never seen or heard from her again.

    I never brought a suit b/c I couldn’t find a lawyer to handle the case. Everyone basically said there was no case regardless what I had on tape, unless I had Miss Holmes saying something to that affect. So, no lawsuit was filed.

    What happen was VERY unprofessional by Miss Holmes and her side. If she changed her mind, all she had to do was call and say so…or get her accountant or lawyer to call. There was no accountability on their part. Such as what happens in the church arena these days and that is unacceptable.

    Its amazing to me that most people want to blame me for something and don’t even acknowledge that she made a vow and then, I believe was steered away from that vow when she really wanted to do it. Her boyfriend or family. I never did anything to these people and was even up front with her, as I am with everyone, to say that if she didn’t win I wouldn’t be there. That she owed me nothing. That I was only there being sent by God. I told her that she was even more important that the money. B/c I was not blind to things happening and wanted to mentor her if I could. Iyanly come along to help there.

    Say what you will about things that happen…there is right and wrong and God has an account of it all. And people will reap what they sow just like I have in my life. My conscience is free and wish that I could bring all involved, and those from my past that want to damn me, to a public accounting. Dr. Phil, T D Jakes. I have even called to try to get on these, but have not heard back. I told them I would appear and not hold anything back if everyone showed up and truth prevailed. Lie detectors would be involved.

    God forgive them for (maybe) they know not what they do…I am

    Pastor Dr. Kevin Matthews

    1. Good day Pastor Kevin Matthews. I’m certainly not Dr. Phil, but I would love to hear your side of the story if you care to share. Send me your info and we’ll try to make it happen!

    2. You are the scum of the earth. I can’t wait for God to bring his wrath upon you. You are the devil. A user and you are a miserable human being. Con artist praying on the weak. This young lady has low self esteem and you sought her out after hearing her story with the boyfriend and donating to the other church. Sorry piece of shit.

    3. Ok, let’s pretend it was right to sue her for the other half she “promised” why then sue her for 14x the amount ? You really think that’s what a man of God would do? That’s disgusting.

    4. Why don’t you buy a lottery ticket and pray to your God if he can five you a favour… Or just go to hell and make a favour to everyone around you man.

    5. You know the story ..What was the greatest trick the devil played ..Pretending he never existed…you played the same trick Prentnding to be a Pastor but in reality You are the devil . You recorded her on purpose to make sure you got all you wanted ..know pastor that I know would ever do that ..they are God fearing men ..God does not tell people to sue to get more money ..God is not that kind of man ..you were greedy and wanted more ..pain and suffering my ass ..so now you living a good life with all that money and I bet you have not shared all your pain and suffering with the good people of your town ..You may call yourself a pastor but your not ..just the devil and you will pay dearly for your sins ..I can’t wait for Karma to get you and it will ..I hope you live in fear that will get paid back for what you did in your life !

    6. You’re a sick person.you should not be allowed to act as a pastor, you clearly have no idea what it is to be so. But that’s okay. You’re going to suffer the worst of anyone, your God will see to that. Lol you need to be reported and you need to loose your title to act on God’s behalf. You’re the devil in desguise

    7. You wouldn’t have won the suit. You have no written agreement. You should have been happy with the gift she gave instead you sue for more. How is that a man of faith. Accept God’s will and have faith that another blessing is coming. The mental stress and I need to take more medication, that typical legal talk and shouldn’t you be looking to prayer for help, not medication. Is that not what you would tell your flock? You shouldn’t have made any promises until you actually had funding. Telling her she will reap what she as sown, look what you’re reaping now.

    8. Listen to yourself Pastor Kevin Mathews. You really believe the other person is in the wrong. Let me tell you something you already know. You do understand that anyone can openly say they will pay you something. I bet you had a lot of people tell you that. How many of those people actually acted on it? If they did not wheres the lawsuits against them????? Your a pastor and if you really study the word of the God you will know that the apostle Paul has something to say about this in 1 Corinthians 6. Lets take a real look Pastor shall we.
      1 Corinthians (KJV) 6 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. 14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. 15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
      The fact that your a pastor and your supposed to Shepard in members of your congregation every week makes this story worse. Your supposed to be the example pastor Jesus Christ in the flesh not a phony or a fake. You mentioned this caused you to increase your medication. Should a man of God as you claim to be really be that stressed out. When Jesus Christ gives peace to all who believe in him. I also find it interesting that when your accusers came on here you placed blame on the person your suing. I dont care about your past and what accusations people have brought up. I am concerned with your present just as Christ is. Your not doing a whole lot of convincing to get people to believe your right by placing blame elsewhere. Didnt Adam and Eve do that in the garden when they were found out? I wonder if will do this when you meet your maker.
      Listen pastor, the time will come soon when Jesus returns and you have the right to choose to do whatever it is you want out of this life. Thats clearly up to any of us. However, only one path leads to everlasting eternity in heaven with Jesus. All other roads are headed for destruction. Are you ready sir?

    9. So, God gave you this opportunity to SUE a lottery winner for you to buy a piece of land for $1.5M. Are freaking retarded??? Where did you crawl out from??? I slimy, creepy crawly and hideous fecal worm . . . crawl back into the cesspit you crawled out from . . . you and the unethical lawyer that filed the lawsuit for you. Both of you will burn in hell!

    10. Basic law, you cannot sue on a promise unless there is consideration (to the promisor by the promisee). No one will believe your BS, God didn’t talk to you and tell you to go minister to her, you went hoping to benefit financially from her. Hell, if I were her, I’d have sued you for the $700K back, as you were not entitled to that money either, and I’m sure the only reason she gave you that was because you talked a simple young overwhelmed woman into it! If I loved in NC, I’d sue you for her for FREE, for the sheer pleasure of suing a disgusting greedy SOB like you!!!

  4. June Roman is a manipulative liar and has manipulated Sarah, Becky and son Billy all of their lives! When we were younger, Billy use to brag at school about how he and his little sisters would take baths together and he would finger them and have sex with them in the bathtub, and his Mother, (aka) Ms Cookie back in the day, allowed it! Said her girls were going to KNOW how to PLEASE A MAN!! DAMN woman was a CRAZY BITCH!! I saw a lot and heard a HELL of a LOT! He was never charged with RAPE of his sisters! Wonder why that was??? Because she wanted to put blame on Mr Kevin! He wanted a divorce from her crazy self, and Billy said she was going to ruin HIS life because she didn’t want Mr Kevin to leave her! That BITCH was CRAZY! I felt bad for the girls though…this is SHIT that should of been kept in the PAST! Ms Cookie will NEVER ADMIT to ANY of this…but this SHIT with Billy molesting his sisters DID HAPPEN and Billy’s childhood friends knew it went on back in the day! The damn girls are scared to death of their Mother and Billy! They’ll never fess up though! Why should they now after all these years?

  5. A phony, fresh-off-the-inkjet-printer “doctorate” from a crappy unaccredited “Bible Skool” doesn’t entitle one to call himself a ‘Dr’.

  6. This whole thing is just foul and makes me sick to my stomach. It doesn’t matter what this woman used her winnings for. Her winnings were hers to flush down the toilet if she wanted and if she changed her mind and decided to do something else that was her prerogative. She gave this Matthews man a crap ton of money out of the goodness of her heart but that just wasn’t good enough for this greedy man. To sue her after she gave him all that money well that is the lowest of low. Take your money and run. This is why people belittle Christians these days. Criminal and mentally ill deviants just use whatever scripture they need and spew hellfire and damnation anytime they want to justify their bad behavior and criminal acts and make it hard for real Christian’s to practice their faith.

  7. I agree with you she did give him money that should of been the end of it. Did he let them know that he was recording them? If not it can not be allowed in a court room. My husband is a paralegal and knows the law. He sounds like a greedy person just looking for someone to hurt. God knows the truth and those will be held accountable for their actions. Maybe God does not want him to build the retreat that could be why he hasn’t gotten all the money that he needs to build the retreat. Pray to God see if that is really what he wants and not what you want.

  8. This whole thing is hilarious. The guys track record involves rape, molestation, prison time, 5 wives and now greed. With easy access to the internet, how does this guy even have a church? Those people are dillusional. Then, this clown comes on the thread and tries to defend his sorry ass. What a joke! This guy is a narcissist.

  9. Guy is scum. And he is right we all get judged. And have no fear man. Your judgement will come too. Wonder how that will turn out for you.

  10. You are a piece of trash. I left NC because of you. You lie to get around everything. A man of God does not have to defend his self like this. You made passes at me and I left the church because of you. You need to stand up and tell the truth. Two things I can not stand is a lier and a thief and you sir are both!

  11. I read she gave him $700.000 and he wanted more and then asked 1.5 million and when she refused that is when he decided to sue her which is so messed up. Man of God my ass. I also read this greedy bastard won and got 10 million which is outrageous if true.

    Also since when does the court ask for 21 million bail on an alleged drug dealing charge. It’s the South and the Racism is rampant

    The curse of the Lottery . . .

  12. I’m a Pastor and I have to say this guy is not much of a pastor. Apparently he has forgotten many parts of the Bible. Pastor remember all you do is for God’s Glory not yours. It is a shame when the path that Jesus laid before us is sometimes made difficult by people who throw rocks upon it. Pastor you still have time, I would suggest you need to have a very long heart to heart with the Father, from him you cannot hide he will know you for what you are and you will be judged by him accordingly. I pray that the Spirit fills you and show you your error and that you make amends.

  13. anyone with a brain knows that the federal gov’t gets at least 50% of the winnings right off the top, before the winner gets a dime. Idiot pastor should have known that much at least: also he should never count on a darn thing until it is available.Never count your chickens before they hatch. He most definitely should NEVER EVER have promised something he did NOT EVEN have

  14. he pushed her into agreeing in the first place by making her agree in the first place. then he harasses her again and again. he is not a representative of god and is a fraud then. he stresses over abusing gods power. that is wrong with this country and live now a days this is the leadership of god? get rid of him..women do that to men all the time as well….

  15. So if the pastor gets away with 10%, one wonders how many others will come and lay similar claims. She should take the rest of her money and move away from the U.S. for 10 years . . . cut ALL ties with all these mooches coming after her money. Pastor, $750,000 is not enough for you???? Go F@&K yourself!!!!
