Fix It, Jesus: Pastor Jamal Bryant's Baby's Mama Wants Him in Jail

The television host is in some hot water.

Pastor Jamal Bryant has found himself in the middle of some baby mama drama.

According to, the mega church preacher's ex has come forward claiming he carried out a series of shady acts against her — and she even wants him thrown in jail for it.

The site reports that LaToya Odom is accusing Bryant of screwing her over and blowing off a court order. She says he has repeatedly refused to follow the court order that's in place.

Going into more specifics, Odom said the popular pastor refused to provide her with his address for their son's medical card and she also added that he has not received any policies, adding that he's "late time to time" on his payments to her.

To ensure that he pays on time, she's asking that a revised court order be put in place and she also wants him locked up for contempt until he purges himself.

This all dates back to 2016, when Odom sued Bryant for failing to pay child support. In addition to the child support suit, she also demanded both primary and legal custody of their son, John Karston Bryant, who was born in 2015. 

The pastor responded to her request, admitting he was the child's father and adding that he had been paying child support and wanted to handle that matter outside of court. However, he said that once she began continuously "harrassing" him, he stopped making the payments and put it all in the judge's hands.

Odom and Bryant eventually reached a settlement in the case back in November 2016, in which she was awarded primary physical custody of their son and Bryant got visitation. While the amount he was required to pay in child support was sealed from the public, it is known that Bryant was ordered to cover Odom's legal bill of $13,500.
