Tullian Tchividjian tried to reconcile with ex-wife and asked woman to pray for brother's death, women allege

Rev. Billy Graham's grandson Tullian Tchividjian had tried to reconcile with his ex-wife a month before he remarried and had asked a woman to pray for the death of his brother Boz, according to two women.

In a report posted by blogger Nate Sparks, one of two women claimed that Tchividjian had sent her a text message asking her to pray that his brother Boz dies. Another report features the women describing Rev. Graham's grandson as a serial manipulator and accusing him of making sexual advances to them and other women while still married to his then-wife Kim.

In addition, the women revealed that Tchividjian had tried to reconcile with Kim in August. However, Kim discovered his relationship with his current wife Stacie, and he married the latter in September.

"My bro is mean as a snake. He hasn't called me one time (not once) in a year but he goes on Twitter and interacts with all my haters and sends these passive aggressive tweets that everybody knows are intended for me," Tchividjian allegedly told Lisa (not her real name) in a text message. 'He doesn't know anything about the situation at all. At all. Pray he dies :)."

When asked by The Christian Post about the recent allegation, he pointed to a Facebook entry and answered that he has "nothing else to say." On Wednesday, he released a statement on Facebook apologizing for the pain he has caused other people and said some of the allegations are true and some are not, but he could not go back and correct all the wrong things he had said and done in the past.

Tchividjian previously made headlines when he resigned as pastor at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Florida last summer after he admitted his involvement in an affair. He initially told The Washington Post that his wife was the one who had an affair first and that he only fell into an "inappropriate relationship" when he leaned on a friend for comfort.

Last September, Tchividjian began working at Willow Creek Church, but was fired after a few months after the truth about his 2014 affair surfaced. After some time, he re-emerged from the scandal as Stacie confirmed their marriage on Nov. 19. He had delivered a sermon at the Spring Hills Community Church in California.

Sparks has voiced out concern that Tchividjian may be aiming to come back to his ministry despite his personal woes. However, the embattled minister told RNS that he was no longer a pastor but will do the Lord's will for him because he is still a Christian.
