Megachurch preacher Paula White has married rock and roll star Jonathan Cain, making the occasion both her and Cain’s third marriage.
White, 49, is known for founding without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida with her second husband Randy White. She turned the church over to him years after their divorce in 2007. White hosts the television show “Paula White Today,” which airs on TBN and BET, and now serves as leader of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida.
She also considers herself a life coach, authoring books such as “The Ten Commandments of Health and Wellness,” “Simple Suggestions for a Sensational Life,” “I Don’t Get Wholeness, That’s the Problem—Making Relationships Work” and “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not.”
White’s first marriage was to Dean Knight, who she married as a teenager. The two have a son together, named Bradley.
Jonathan Cain, 65, is known for his roles in the bands Bad English and Journey, especially for penning the Journey hits “Don’t Stop Believin,'” “When You Love a Woman” and “Who’s Crying Now.”
His first marriage was to singer Tané McClure, who he divorced and later went on to marry Elizabeth Fullerton, with whom he has three children. Cain recently divorced for the second time, and married White last month.
Cain continues to tour with Journey, and posts about his concerts on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, such as he did earlier this month when he played a casino in Las Vegas.
“Journey is in the house. Craps anyone? @ The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino,” he Tweeted.
“I know you will rock it tonight,” White messaged to him.
She also shared a photo on her own Instagram, writing, “I love this pic of my baby rocking it last night @jonathancainmusic—missing him tonight.”
In addition to playing secular music with Journey, Cain is also a winemaker as a part of Finale Wines. He thanked Vegas’ Southern Wine and Spirits for carrying his wines in a status earlier this week.
White’s ex-husband Randy says he is supportive of her re-marriage.
“I am so happy for Paula and Jonathan,” he wrote on Facebook on April 20. “I pray they have a great marriage and do great works for the kingdom! I said I would never marry again until I made sure Paula married someone else.”
However, others have expressed concern over the matter, pointing to biblical commands against divorce and remarriage.
“She obviously thinks the parts in the Bible that condemn and severely restrict any justification for divorce (i.e., adultery) do not apply to her,” one commenter wrote.
“This is why the institution of marriage is mocked,” another stated.
