Paula Deen is no secret to scandal, but the TV chef has found herself in her worst one yet!
RadarOnline.com has learned that Paula’s brother-in-law, Henry Groover III, has committed suicide after being dealt some jaw-dropping news.
A source told the site that Henry had been served with a copy of a lawsuit that accused him of being a “sexual predator.”
The news is made all the worse by the fact that Henry was a Dominican priest whom Paula called her “spiritual adviser.”
The lawsuit, obtained by RadarOnline.com, alleges, “from the years 1983 to present…[Groover] lured and otherwise enticed the minor Ancil Harvey Gordon III into the illegal sexual acts.”
In addition, it says Henry “used LSD, alcohol, MDMA, cocaine, and other illicit substances to lure and otherwise attract” the young man for “illegal and explicit sexual acts.”
RadarOnline.com has also reported that a suicide investigation was opened on January 17, and the autopsy will take place on January 19.
The plaintiff’s attorney, Mark Tate of the Tate Law Group, told Radar exclusively, “Clearly this sad man knew that all his sins were about to be revealed in a way he could not any longer deny nor live with.”
