"I'm not crying just because I was kicked or I was choked. There's more to it than that for me. I know that scars heal, but I lost somebody that I loved very much. I know people go through this saying I loved him. No, I love him," said Bynum.
Bynum said she will probably never stop loving her husband, but the pastor and accomplished author said she was finished with what she called an abusive marriage.
"My love for Bishop Weeks I don't think will ever die. I said this to someone yesterday, my love for him, separating what I experienced in that parking lot, I have enough love. It's so much until I think I can marry him twice, but this one is over," Bynum said.
Bynum said she gave her attorney the go-ahead for divorce proceedings last week. She admitted she thought the routine blow-ups in their near five year marriage were normal initially.
"This was not the first time that we had had a physical altercation. It's never been to this degree, never. Shoving. He's never physically drawn a fist back and hit me, but it's been pushing and shoving," said Bynum.
Bynum said she gave her attorney the go-ahead for divorce proceedings last week. During her press conference Tuesday she announced that she would launch a new ministry to help other women who have suffered violent attacks at the hands of the men who were suppossed to love them.
