Anti-gay preacher Kim Burrell sued by ‘I’m not gay no more’ viral sensation

The man who says he was “delivered” from homosexuality in the “I’m not gay no more” viral video is suing anti-gay preacher Kim Burrell.

Burrell, a gospel singer and preacher who was featured on tracks with Pharrell and Frank Ocean has been hit with a defamation lawsuit by Andrew Caldwell.

Caldwell rose to viral fame in 2015 when he declared passionately that he had been “delivered” from homosexuality and that he was straight.

He later said God put him in the spotlight.

But he has now taken umbrage with Burrell who was earlier in January dropped from a performance with Pharrell on the Ellen Show.

Caldwell says Burrell mentioned him in the clip of a sermon she led which cost her the Ellen performance, and that she mentioned his “delivarance” from homosexuality.

She said it made a “mockery of the church”, and that it was an example of the “enemy”, according to Caldwell’s lawsuit.

Burrell preached: “The minute somebody comes up with a deaf and dumb spirit, a mute spirit, one that can’t even talk that has a perverted spirit saying that ‘I am delivered,’ he goes all the way to Jimmy Kimmel. You think the enemy is not trying to make a mockery of the church?”

Speaking on Facebook Live, Caldwell said he had served Burrell with the subpoena and that he planned to file a restraining order against her.
