The Rev. Jamal Bryant has broken his silence on the recent controversies surrounding him and his secret son. As previously reported, rumors surfaced that Bryant had a 10-month-old son named John Karston Bryant, whom the public nor his congregation was aware of. Last week, he took to Periscope to speak out. While he wouldn’t directly address the validity of the rumor because his lawyers had advised him not to, he did say:

Over the last week, a lot has been said and a lot has been suggested and like you I was thrown into a tailspin. I had to shut down for a minute so that my response would not be that of a man but be priestly as a man of God. To that end, let me say to you I am one of those rare people who are flawed with character. That with all of my issues I don’t run from them I stand right next to them. Those of you who have been with me you are fully aware that some eight, nine years now, I went through a divorce and claimed all of it my responsibility. The worst mistake you can ever make is to repeat the exact same mistake.
