"I made some mistakes," sings Gospel star James Fortune in his 2008 single "I Trust You". One of those mistake has come back to haunt him and his wife Cheryl Fortune. A multimillion dollar lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Fortune's stepson and Cheryl's son.

From Examiner.com:

According to an article and news video from My Fox Houston, popular Houston gospel music artist James Fortune and his wife Cheryl Fortune have been named in a five million dollar lawsuit related to the abuse of James Fortune’s stepson and Cheryl Fortune’s son.

The incident, which happened in 2001, resulted in the 4-year old child having severe burns over nearly 50% of his body. The lawsuit states that the child has had to undergo skin graft operations and is permanently disfigured. In 2003, James Fortune pled guilty to felony injury to a child and received six years deferred adjudication.

The child is now 15-years old and the family has stated that the money from the lawsuit would be used to pay for plastic surgery to correct the disfigurement from the abuse.

James Fortune is from and still lives in the Houston area. He and his group FIYA are multiple Stellar award winning artists known for the hit gospel songs “I Believe” and “I Trust You.”

      According to (Sly)FoxNews:

      According to the suit filed against the couple, James picked up Cheryl's 4-year old son from pre-school and the teacher said the boy "misbehaved by coloring on a table". The documents claim the gospel singer "scolded the toddler" on the way home, put him in time out at home, "continued to yell and berate the child" then started "preparing a scalding bath" for the 4-year old boy.

      The lawsuit goes on to say "James instructed (the child) to remove his clothes and began to whip the naked toddler with a switch". Then the suit accuses James Fortune of "pushing the toddler in the scalding water and holding him down causing second and third degree burns to 47% of his body". The little boy was flown by "life flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital. The doctors determined the injuries were too extensive and the boy was flown by life flight to Shriners Burn Hospital in Galveston where he remained for 63 days" according to the lawsuit.

      Very..very...unfortunate situation, but hopefully he has repented for this act that was committed on this child and is allowing the Lord to make him better. His songs are very heartfelt and spirit-filled.

      NO ONE is perfect and just because he's a gospel singer does not mean he's perfect. All human beings have sinned. Romans 3:23

      I really hope this child who is older now, heals physically and emotionally and I feel very bad for what he has endured.

      More than likely, they couldn't prove that the father was actually trying to cause harm to the child. Perhaps what he thought was just a "hot bath" to soothe the switch wounds was, in fact, too hot for the child? Maybe it wasn't intentional? :shrug:

    • Iheart

      @Bcinks, Naaa man :nono: he held the child down so he had to have felt that hot as water spalshing back on him. And for the child to have burns on that much of his body, it was some intention behind that IMO...

      I read LadyCN's post and I literally want to cry. Who and why would you do that to a 4 year old?! A little slap on the hand and scolding is good enough. HIS MOTHER wasn't even HOME at the time! No way you gonna put hands on my kid and i'm not home to watch. Poor judgment. Very sad situation.

      ^^^^^^^^^^
      the use of a switch on a 4 y.o. can be considered abuse, let alone trying to soothe said swith wounds w/ a SCOLDING bath. it dont take a whole day to recognize sunshine. furthermore, he PLED guilty (not no contest) to felony injury to a child -- he admitted his intent :yes:

    • goat76

      You don't plead guilty or settle out if you're innocent. You fight that shit to the death of you.

      This is horrible but again, folks need to stop judging people by what they profess and instead judge them by how they live. Some people are honest with themselves, most aren't. So him being a "gospel" singer means squat to me.

      I will say the woman is nuts because clearly he has some issues and I would not allow them to be taken out on my children....but women stay for worse :shrugs:

      I will not judge this man for something that happen 10 years ago. If it happen and the young man has medical bills I hope he agrees to pay them. Just hoping it's not a get rich quick scam by the father.

      -------------
      I don't really believe it either. I was just trying to find a reasonable explanation as to why he didn't spend time in jail. If I can judge the correct bath temp for my dog, surely a father could do the same for his child.

      ^^^^^^^^^
      soooooooooo ..... is it sneaked or snuck ? ? ? :hahaha:

      :pc: answer : The past tense of sneak is sneaked, according to the AP style guide. Snuck is becoming more popular and may supplant "sneaked" but not officially....thus far.

      sneaked

      Due to common usage, the dictionary now lists the rather vulgar snuck as an option, but sneaked is the original past tense form.

      The fact that this man did this to her child and she is STILL with him and he is still living in breathing I can't even comprehended.

      James Fortune issued this statement:

      I recently became aware of a civil suit pending against my wife, Cheryl Fortune and I, for an incident that occurred in 2001 involving my stepson. There was a criminal investigation and all matters were resolved in 2003. Since that time, my family and I, including my stepson, have continued with family traditions and always have a loving family environment. We are shocked by this lawsuit but understand people are free to use the court system to pursue claims, whether they contain merit or baseless matters. We are confident through this process, if it proceeds to a judge or jury, the ultimate decision maker will render a decision that is favorable to the circumstances and timing surrounding this situation. We believe in our American justice system and know it will work for us as it has for millions of other Americans.

      I love all my children, including my stepson, and I ask for your prayers as we deal with this matter privately. Thank you for your continued support for me, my family, and ministry.

      I'd believe his music was heartfelt and spirit filled if the father didn't have to sue for this money. If he was spirit filled he would have been paying that child's medical bills already. I siding towards him being a wolf in sheeps clothing as the best case scenario. More than likely he's Satan's minion regardless of what his music sounds like.

      Now that chit's stuck in my head. :mad:

      @Y'all, yep Cali has been doing it. They ship inmates to privatized prisons in AZ regularly, then charge the taxpayers while they get kickbacks from the prisons they're shipping them too!

      @Goat I understand and I feel the same way but sometimes people would rather ensure they can see the light of day again than chance the court systems. In this case though, he more than likely did it.

      Yea, what was up with that was it like the Jim Jones version of his quick music video when he was driving to his momma. I cant wait for next week though when Jose tell Mimi about the baby. DAMN! He knew who the hell the baby was by and i guess we know what happened to the baby now.

      :dead: The only one with some sense in that situation is Mimi's friend. I'm still confused as to which man is running the show over at the studio

    • Gigi26

      Rasheeda is living in epic denial. I felt so bad for her :no: Matter fact, nope I don't. WTF?! And why Kandi always co-signing some fukk shyt all in the damn video :no: Her rhymes are trash. She's pretty though. And when she was sleeping n shyt when she was introducing herself to the "world" I DIED :rofl: Bish please!

      Now why oh why Mona decide to play Trey Songz "Heartbreak" when that shim was peeing on that stick?! I can't with them?!

      And why are all these idiots hyping Stevie J like he the Dream or something?! Nigga singing on the piano like he's Ray J, this show is epic comedy.

      I have a confession: I think Scrappy is cute. Judge me. :shrug:

    • Xena68

      Mimi is an old fool.

    • yallcrazy

      Therapist, ION think that $5M is alot, counting the numerous surgeries that'll be necessary. One surgery/hospital can easily hit $200,000 IMO

      Plus he's gotta live, he can't work, where will he live at physically?

    • NaijaGal

      Prison has always been a huge business and money maker...where else can you pay someone 3 cents an hour for products that you charge society $20 for...cheap labor and these young black men out here keep giving them employees

      I'm tripping on MiMi seeking a 10% commission for the use of Stevie's Dyck.

      Then when he was on the piano singing, all I could think of was K-Ci and JoJo and he sounded like he was trying to sing Jo-Jo's parts.

      Why the hell was she running around with that unwrapped pee stick in her handbag and why was everybody "handling" it?

    • yallcrazy

      This month Essence magazine had a small article on For Profit prisons @Naija.

      105-they also make the prisoners buy EVERYTHING from them.

      That's what I was saying, don't you actually have to pee on it to get results. It also sounded like that stick was the only thing he was carrying in his purse...

      @ Goat....I was like :blink: Is she really running around like that? Then he talking about, what you showing me this for? I think he just lost interest cause if that dude wasn't hinting at her getting rid of it, iono what he was doin. :no:

      We got photoshoots, and videos and stuff to do, we ain't got time for no morning sickness.

    • htown-chick

      Yall know I'm normally lurking but this "nobodys perfect" comment really disturbed me! Bew bew being perfect has nothing to do with having enough compassion NOT to punish a 4 year old by burning him in a tub...dude obviously has issues and Cheryl u have to too...true enough she left him when it first happened..I'll give her that..but u went back and had 3 kids from this maniac! No way in hell man

    • http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qkt7Dx_uK5Y MzDimplez1123

      @ Cousin....The babymama was trying to pimp him. The Sidepiece be checking his ass and the other women around him. (S)he told old girl she don't know if she's agreed to him working with her yet. :rofl:

    • NaijaGal

      OTB and I also take issue with a woman emasculating a man, especially her husband...although they claim the cameras are second nature, you know the ish is there

    • goat76

      LOL @ hints...the only thing he didn't do was drop kick her in the uterus.

      That shit was sadfunny....lol

    • yallcrazy

      Boot, it's about to get worse IMO if we allow it :shrug:

      People better wake up!

      The state are Promising the private companies that they'll be sure to have a certain amount of prisoners :wtf: They (state) will not stop building these buildings if they know they'll be bought. The private compaanies will not stop purchasing them from the states if they are guaranteed a prison population. It's all kinds of fukced up...

      We need to fight for prison reform before it's too late. This should be on everybody's minds... :coffee:

      @Yall Did you hear about the Judge in Pennsylvania who had an unwritten agreement with the privatized prisons in that State? This fool was handing out years YEARS of incarceration sentences to teens for petty crimes like truancy and grafitti. The Judge and a bnunch of his staff were indicted and sent to prison when the sentencing for pay scandal became public....all to keep the private prisons profitable...fool got a 1 Million dollar kickback....sentenced to 28 years... :blink:

      I saw the documentary on that. Sickening. But the only thing that kept going through my head was "They're only focusing on that particular case because they were doing it to yt kids".

    • howmanylicks_07untiluswallow

      That's what i was saying about the baby cause everyone was like what happened to the baby she obviously "handled" it. I know he couldnt be that dumb and not know who the father was. My hubby watched last night and was cracking up at them showing the dramatic peeing on the stick part. He was like why they all up in the bathroom wit her.

    • Destinee

      First, I know the Fortune family. We attended the same church Higher Dimension. He was our praise leader for about 5 yrs. They have a beautiful blended family. They treat all their children the same. The same son that they are speaking of attends church with them as well. They are a happy family. I don't know the specifics about the burning. It wasn't because James did something intentially to hurt her son.I'm pretty sure they are trying to get more money because of his CD sales for the few years have increase substantially. This is a Godly family with Godly values. James and Cheryl are good parents.
