Recently, Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant's ex-husband (and current boyfriend) Pastor Jamal Bryant was accused of fathering a child by a member of his congregation. The reality star, who split with her husband in 2009 over infidelity, is addressing these fresh rumors which surfaced just as they're working to bring their relationship back on track.
"That is all the way a lie," Bryant told Andy Cohen during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. "Clearly we're very important if people are going to make up these lies."
She continued, "Put some respect on Jamal's name. He's doing wonderful things in Atlanta."
Pastor Bryant himself addressed the rumors in a video posted to his church website last week.
"I have been in a tailspin over the last 24 hours," he said. "Reckless and irresponsible bloggers who went on with no facts, no evidence, and might I add, no truth to make baseless accusations that I had fathered a baby in April, May, February, January — here in Atlanta — and was hiding this baby from some mother in Atlanta or in my church. That, no. 1, is 1,000 percent untrue. One thousand percent faulty."
Sounds like the rumors aren't sidetracking the progress Gizelle and Jamal have made on their relationship. She told Cohen that they are "doing good, even in the quarantine."
"He's in Atlanta, but we've been trying to see each other," she said.
