The spouse of Jessica Hahn, the secretary at the center of the scandal involving Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, has applied for divorce. Tuesday (11 July), Frank Lloyd filed for divorce with the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents obtained.
Lloyd requests that their attorney fees be split and that they waive their claim to spousal support from one another. Lloyd asserts that he and Hahn have been divorced since 2018, despite their 2009 marriage.
While the former couple has kept their relationship relatively private, the former Playboy model stunned the world in 1987 when she claimed that Jim had r*ped her at the age of 21 in 1980. Later, he admitted that he had once had s*xual relations with her, but insisted that they were consensual.
Do you know that Camille and Kelsey Grammer’s nearly 14-year marriage hasn’t ended despite their legal divorce in February 2011? The cast member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and the renowned “Cheers” actor no longer appear to share any interests besides Mason and Jude:
After the Charlotte Observer began investigating Jim and Tammy Faye’s finances, Hahn spoke out. At the time, the two were reportedly known for a multimillion-dollar Christian-based business conglomerate known as PTL. The South Carolina-based organization was comprised of a Christian broadcasting network, a theme park, an aquatic park, and a residential complex.
Among the newspaper’s findings was that Jim made a $279,000 payment to Jessica, a church secretary at the time. Later, Bakker was convicted guilty of 24 counts of fraud and given a 45-year prison sentence. He was paroled after approximately five years in prison.
In a 2020 interview with the Charlotte Observer, she discussed her post-scandal experience –
“I go out and sometimes people, rarely, but once they hear my name, they’re like, ‘Oh.’ I get embarrassed. I never used to get embarrassed. I guess because the reality of it hit me. It’s ridiculous.”
As the husband of Jessica Hahn, a central figure in the Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker scandal, files for divorce, the world is reminded of the tumultuous history that unfolded decades ago. The details surrounding their separation and the dissolution of their marriage have emerged through court documents, shedding light on the irreconcilable differences that have led them on separate paths.
While Jessica Hahn’s allegations of r*pe against Jim Bakker captured global attention in 1987, the aftermath of the scandal continues to impact her life. The revelations brought to light the complexities of the Bakkers’ Christian-based businesses and financial dealings, ultimately leading to legal repercussions for Jim Bakker.
Reflecting on the years that have passed, Jessica Hahn acknowledges the lasting impact of her involvement in the scandal. Despite the challenges she has faced, she remains resilient and looks toward the future with a sense of self-awareness and growth.
As this chapter of their lives draws to a close with the divorce filing, the public is left to ponder the long-lasting consequences of the Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker scandal and its profound impact on the individuals involved.
