MUGSHOT PHOTO! Here again is the BeBe Winans mug shot after he was arrested in February 2009. While BeBe Winans was arrested in February, Oprah fans are questioning the logic of Winans’ subsequent appearances on the talk show even after Oprah’s covering of the Rihanna Chris Brown matter.
In February 2009, Debra Winans, married to Bebe for 16 years, claimed the singer threw her to the ground in front of their children. The story would not come out until early March as profiled here on LALATE at the time.
Debra and BeBe had divorced in 2003. A the time of his arrest, BeBe served as a judge on the BET reality tv show “Sundays Best”.
The cause – a disagreement over custody issues surrounding their two children, a 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son. B Debra tells WSMV:
“Until you realize something’s not changing, you pray all day long. The power of God is real, but one thing he’s not going to do is go against someone’s will. We make choices.”
Debra is now speaking out to help victims of domestic violence. BeBe had no comment to the report.
