benny-hinn Orange County, Feb 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Pastor Benny Hinn’s wife Suzanne Hinn has filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage. Evangelist Benny Hinn’s ministry is a multimillion-dollar operation. He is also under investigation by the Sen. Charles Grassley over whether he compiles with the IRS non-profit rules. Pastor Benny Hinn claims in his defense, that he has also complied with the IRS rules, and 88% of the money he collects is given to the ministry.

Suzanne Hinn married the pastor in 1979, and has also borne four children with him. She filed for divorce on the 1st of February 2010, at the Orange County Superior Court. She wants to end the marriage because of some “irreconcilable differences” between her and her husband. There had been reports of problems amongst them, & both of them also claim that they had tried to make the marriage work, but things now have come to such a stage, that they have no option but to call it quits. However when news spread like wildfire that Suzanne had filed for divorce, then Pastor Benny Hinn said that he was taken by surprise.

“Pastor Benny Hinn and his immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of this news without any previous notice. Although Pastor Hinn has faithfully endeavored to bring healing to their relationship, those efforts failed and were met with the petition for divorce that was filed without notice,” Benny Hinn Ministries said Thursday in a statement.
