Bynum revealed on “Good Morning America” Wednesday that this was not her first encounter with domestic abuse.
Her first marriage, which inspired her million-copy selling sermon “No More Sheets,” ended as a result of domestic abuse. At the time, Bynum quietly divorced her husband and chose to move on with her life.
“He repented for what he did. I made a vow that I would not talk about that situation,” she said.
Now, as her current husband faces charges of aggravated assault and making terroristic threats, according to The Associated Press, Bynum said she has decided to speak out. (Her husband is no longer is allowed to contact her.)
“You don’t call it abuse until it’s a parking lot situation,” she said. Often times people classify such behavior as marital issues, but it’s abuse when you’re getting yelled at, Bynum added.
Some critics have accused Bynum of using the situation to gain recognition and a larger following. Bynum shot down such allegations.



He thought his dogfighting drama was put to rest with a guilty plea in the federal case last month, but suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was indicted Tuesday on two charges in Virginia: one count of unlawfully torturing and killing dogs and one of promoting dogfights. Each is a felony that could result in a five-year prison term. The new charges in Surry County come after the 27-year-old pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge of funding a dogfighting operation from his home outside Newport News, Virginia. He is scheduled to be sentenced on December 10 in U.S. District Court and faces a possible prison term of 12 to 18 months. Vick’s lawyers said they will “aggressively” work to make sure “that he is not held accountable for the same conduct twice.” “We are disappointed that these charges were filed in Surry County, since it is the same conduct covered by the federal indictment for which Mr. Vick has already accepted full responsibility and pleaded guilty to in U.S. District Court in Richmond, Virginia,” his lead attorney, Billy Martin, said in a statement issued Tuesday afternoon. Vick pleaded guilty after three associates — Purnell Peace, 35, of Virginia Beach; Quanis Phillips, 28, of Atlanta, Georgia; and Tony Taylor, 34, of Hampton, Virginia — admitted their roles in the operation and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. Tuesday’s grand jury session resulted in charges of promoting dogfighting against all three. In addition, Taylor faces three additional counts of unlawful torture and killing of dogs, and Peace, like Vick, faces one count. All four are scheduled to be arraigned October 3 and face a tentative trial date of November 27.



Prince ended his 21-date residency at London’s O2 arena with a bang Friday night giving the audience a show full of his biggest hits, including “Controversy,” “U Got the Look,” “Diamonds and Pearls,” “Little Red Corvette,” “I Would Die 4 U” and “Delirious.” He also fulfilled his wish to have British soul singer Amy Winehouse join him on stage. The troubled artist joined Prince for his afterparty concert at O2’s intimate Indigo venue to sing her song “Love Is a Losing Game” with His Royal Badness.



If all goes well, Clint Eastwood will direct Morgan Freeman for a third time in their storied careers. Following “Unforgiven” and Oscar-winner “Million Dollar Baby,” Eastwood is in talks to helm “The Human Factor,” about how the 1995 Rugby World Cup helped heal post-apartheid race relations in South Africa. Freeman would play the role of Nelson Mandela. The film is set immediately after the fall of apartheid, and after Mandela was released from a long imprisonment and became South African president. Mandela recognized the significance when South Africa was selected host of the 1995 Rugby World Cup after the team had been barred from even competing since the 1980s because of apartheid. Freeman, who stars with Jack Nicholson in the upcoming Rob Reiner-directed WB film “The Bucket List,” went to South Africa with McCreary last spring to get Mandela’s blessing on the project. Matt Damon is in talks to play the captain of the Springboks team. Freeman and Revelations partner Lori McCreary are co-producing, while Warner Bros is currently negotiating to provide financing. “The Human Factor” is an adaptation of the John Carlin book “The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed the World.”
