On Dec. 21, 2023, a video emerged containing information that implicated several different entertainers of illicit behavior. TikToker @mackmaxwell4 shared an audio recording claiming that singer Cassie Ventura provided evidence to the FBI concerning rapper Diddy amidst an ongoing lawsuit against him. Cassie had previously accused Diddy of violence during their relationship and is prepared to take him to court.

This new evidence supposedly places Diddy at several unsavory parties. Shockingly enough, Diddy wasn't the only prominent celebrity named in this video.

Among them, Pastor TD Jakes has also been implicated. With drama around his reputation continuing to surface, many are curious as to who his children are. Here's what we know about his family.

His oldest son Jermaine is a filmmaker and has reportedly directed several religious films. His second song Jamar writes and produces music, many of which have been played at the pastor's events. His daughters Sara and Cora have taken after their parents as religious leaders and youngest son Thomas Dexter Jakes Jr is a successful businessman.

While the Jakes family has garnered an enormous reputation among the American Christian community, Pastor TD may face some rough waters ahead. His name has come up several times in evidence pertaining to the ongoing lawsuit against Diddy, with whom TD is reportedly best friends.

Burner phone emails suggest that TD Jakes had attended many of Diddy's shady parties and participated in infidelity of his own.

According to the evidence obtained, TD Jakes allegedly slept with multiple men at Diddy's parties. While these claims have yet to be confirmed as of this writing, the news has created buzz around the family. As of now, the comments on the pastor's social media accounts are currently limited during this time of crisis for the family.
