Byron Yawn is a former pastor and entrepreneur who is well known as the CEO of “Forrest Crain and Co” which is a Tennessee consulting firm. His exact date of birth is not known but it is estimated to be between 1976-1981 in Mississippi, United States.
But before we get to know about Byron, let’s get to know about his recent scandals and lawsuits.
Accusation and lawsuits
He recently came into the limelight when the famous baseball player in Chicago namely Ben Zobrist filed two lawsuits against him claiming that he had an affair with Julianna Zobrist. She is their wife of Ben and he also accused him of defrauding Zobrit’s charity.
To address his problems with his marriage, the two-time World Series champion Ben Zobrist took four months off from the Chicago Cubs during the 2019 season. The leave was costly for him as he lost USD 8 million in income as stated by his lawsuit. So, he is seeking USD 6 million in damages from Byron.
According to the lawsuit, Zobrist didn’t learn about the alleged affair until June 2020, during his hiatus from baseball in 2019. Ben and Julianna were in a marriage relationship since 2005. They have three children together as well.
Furthermore, his lawsuit states that he has donated a large sum of money to Community Bible Church. According to some news outlets, it is also revealed that he had given USD 15000 to Byron’s family for a pastoral trip.
The lawsuit also states that “Byran often capitalized on the Plaintiff’s celebrity, asking him to sign autographs for his mother-in-law; requesting tickets to baseball games; hosting ‘Guys Night Out’ for the church at Mr. Zobrist’s home; (requesting) that Mr. Zobrist send personal videos to parishioners who were being baptized, and nominating Mr. Zobrist as a deacon of Community Bible Church in hopes that his celebrity would attract new parishioners and keep current parishioners.”
Julianna claimed that Ben is guilty
It has been public and messy since the announcement of their divorce. She has made a claim that “Ben is guilty of falling to preserve marital assets after taking a brief hiatus because of their issues.”
However, Ben’s attorney Helen S. Roger called the claims “utterly absurd” and said that her affair with Byron had caused Ben to have “extreme mental distress“. She also added, “Rather than accepting blame for having torn her husband’s heart out by having an affair with their pastor, she expected him to be able to totally focus on an elite athletic job that required (100%) of his physical and mental energy.”
Helen also claimed that Juliann “coaxed” Ben into returning to the MLB when he was not ready. She continued by saying, “It is Mrs. Zobrist, by having an extramarital affair and confessing same to her husband, and not disclosing the true extent of her affair, that caused him such extreme mental distress and difficulty that resulted in an inability to finish his long and very successful career in the way that he had hoped for and planned for.”
Julianna is currently going after the 2016 World Series MVP and two-time World Series champion for USD 4 million. Ben took a hiatus following the affair because of his declining mental health. So he had to lose USD 8 million in salary after signing a USD 12 million deal but only playing for 2 months.
Julianna claims that she owns at least half of that and this multi-million dollar price comes after Ben filled a USD 6 million lawsuit against Byron in May 2021.
However, Ben is trying to convince for a 60-40 split of assets as he has claimed that his soon-to-be ex-wife overspent their estate by at least USD 691,602.86.
Now, let’s move the topic to Byron’s personal details.
