Nine days ago, Justin Bieber (23) announced that he was ending his Purpose concert tour because he was tired and wanted to ride a bike. But after a couple of days it turned out that the matter was not in the bicycle, but in faith in God, to which he decided to devote himself entirely and completely. And Karl Lenz (38) decided to help him find the path to enlightenment, who has known Justin for many years and more than once "helped him to find faith."
Karl Lenz is the pastor of the "modern" Hillsong Church in New York and an atypical priest. For his love of leather jackets, perfect hairstyles and tattoos, he was nicknamed "the hipster pastor."
During these nine days, Bieber and Lenz never parted. This is not the first time they practice - a couple of years ago, Justin lived with Karl and his wife to "be closer to God." They go jogging together, have breakfast together at the Mastro’s cafe, go to buy Supreme x Louis Vuitton bombers together, and every time they have to part, they talk on FaceTime.
But Justin is not the first person Lenz (a priest in jeans, hoodies and aviators) is trying to set on the right track. By the way, he is also the spiritual mentor of Selena Gomez (25), Kevin Durant (28) and Kendall Jenner (21), but Karl has never been with anyone as close as with Bieber. They even dress the same! And so it happens: first you agree on love for Virgil Abloh (36), then wear the same shoes, and then he - bam - and gives you into the hands of God. And who knows there? Maybe he loves Off-White too.
