It looks like NYC’s ‘Bling Bling’ Bishop, Lamor Whitehead, is back in headlines for allegedly faking bank documents to finance his New Jersey mansion, NY Post reported. 

Whitehead first gained international notoriety in 2022 after being robbed at gunpoint at his Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Brooklyn, New York during a live stream. The 44-year-old received enormous backlash from critics about his choice to sport designer labels and luxury cars. Since then, the Bishop has been having a hard time dodging the media. As of recently, he faces federal fraud charges for allegedly faking important documents to receive a quarter-million dollar business loan in 2018.

According to the outlet, Whitehead applied for a business loan and allegedly provided a

“bank account that did not in fact exist.”

The documents made it seem that his company, Anointing Management Services LLC, had over $2 million in assets, however, 

“during that time period [the business] had an average ending balance of less than ten dollars.” 

Reports reveal that although Whitehead did not receive the loan in 2018, he applied again in 2019 with

“forged documents”

to receive a $1.3 million mortgage on his home in Paramus, New Jersey.

“We are going to be fighting those allegations. Lamor Whitehead will be pleading not guilty when he is arraigned on the … indictment and denies those charges,”

Whitehead’s attorney Dawn Florio told the outlet.

Back in December, Whitehead was arrested by federal agents for allegedly stealing $90,000 from one of his church members’ retirement fund, and spending it on luxury items. He was later freed on a $500,000 bond. In 2006, the pastor was also convicted of identity theft after using victims’ personal information to purchase cars and motorcycles.
