After the news went viral that pastor John Gray bought his wife a 200k Lamborghini for her eighth wedding anniversary, he has taken to social media to defend his decision.

Pastor John Gray, who leads Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina, and still preaches at Lakewood Church in Houston, is responding to people who criticized him for the lavish anniversary gift he gave to his wife for their eighth wedding anniversary on Dec.11.

In a video captured by R&B singer and actor Tyrese, Gray surprises his wife Aventer with a Lamborghini Urus. According to the Kelley Blue Book, the 2019 luxury SUV starts at $200,000.

Pastor John Gray teared up at times during a Facebook Live video Thursday as he defended buying a Lamborghini for his wife.

Gray said the luxury sports utility vehicle was bought with “not a nickel, not a penny,” from Relentless Church in Greenville.

Gray said he has saved and planned his money for years, drawing on a variety of sources including his second book deal and the fourth season of his OWN channel reality show.

“My wife has pushed for my dreams and my vision and she has toiled with a man who is still trying to find himself,” Gray said. “That carries a weight. I wanted to honor her for how she’s covered me.”

Gray said the Lamborghini wasn’t bought by a pastor, it was bought by a husband who happens to be a pastor and did not involve money from Relentless Church.
