BOMBSHELL: A Glover bombshell dropped last week.
Kenyon Glover, 45, was abruptly released from his role as an FBI agent in the human trafficking series ‘E40S’ (Every 40 Seconds) produced by Chong Kim. The high-profile New York Times acclaimed Korean-American filmmaker removed the actor from the production last week.
The London Journal broke the story. Kim told the outlet, “He has been removed and is no longer associated with E40S.” Glover is facing allegations of sexual violence and assault, the L.A. Reformer has learned.
This is not the first time that Glover has experienced legal trouble, highlighting a disturbing trend of predatory behavior. Glover has per public records, been the subject of multiple allegations of assaultive behavior, all following a similar pattern. Glover’s defense team has not stepped forward to refute the latest allegations.
In the wake of sexual harassment and abuse allegations against Hollywood elite in recent years, many in Hollywood are calling for sweeping changes to the entertainment industry to prevent assaultive behavior from being normalized. Kim’s decision to remove Glover from ‘E40S’ is not solely an act of accountability but also a reaffirmation of the film’s mission and the cause it aims to champion.
Kim, IMDb qualifier’s 8 & HalFilm’s 2023 Best American Director, is a renowned human and civil rights advocate with a long-standing history of effecting change.
As a respected filmmaker with worldwide influence, Kim had to weigh the potential impact of Glover’s presence on the project’s message and the safety of her cast and crew. Film Daily reports that Kim’s bold decision to cut Glover from production underscores the importance of upholding ethical standards within the entertainment industry.
The bombshell London Journal report concludes Glover’s legal dilemmas in an exclusive investigation. Here’s what we know. Thursday everything came crashing down as it was reported that Glover is the subject of two active violence restraining orders in different U.S. jurisdictions. The court orders range from the West Coast to the American South, with allegations of sexual misconduct, assault and stalking.
The damning report also revealed several victims are involved, uncovering that prosecutors had charged Glover with a domestic violence offense for one woman and that a judge recently found him guilty of assault for another woman. Rolling Hype reported that Glover has readily admitted to being charged for domestic violence.
Since the news broke, Kenyon Glover has not commented publicly on any of the accusations or the judge’s rulings.
Culver City Times details court information from Glover’s assault case in Los Angeles County. According to court documents and legal sources in Los Angeles, Judge Alfred A. Coletta, a 30-year veteran prosecutor and former Deputy District Attorney for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office ruled against Kenyon Demorio Glover. The judge said he believed Glover “exceeded what he felt was perhaps permissive behavior that would have caused him to act that way,” determining the actor assaulted a woman.
In her testimony to the judge, the victim stated, “He [Glover] did a lot of stuff to scare me, to intimidate me, and it was to provoke fear in me.” The victim spoke directly to Glover on the impact of the assault and said, “Yes, Sir, you did attack me. Yes, Sir, you did use threats, emotional manipulation, trickery, and coercion,” according to the court report.”
According to court records, Glover told the victim on the day of the assault, “I almost killed a man. I got off because it was self defense, but I almost killed him.”
The woman described Glover — a former NBA and University of Maine basketball player — at the hearing as having a “temper,” a “narcissistic sociopath” and the victim told the court the baller was a “predator,” court documents state.
The victim is documented to have told the court “he’s a very scary and dangerous person, and I’ve seen firsthand now behind the scenes,” according to court records.
Judge Coletta, appointed to L.A. Superior Court by Governor Newsom, who had reviewed numerous cases, called the testimony “disturbing,” court records show. The judge pointed to Glover’s actions after the fact to suggest he acted wantonly, and gave merit to the victim. “I do find her credible,” the judge stated to Glover, according to a report from Cinetalk. Court records show that the court ruling was made on “clear and convincing” evidence.
Turmoil has been brewing for the actor as controversies and allegations mount. Last month, UltimateSportsDaily reported that a judge in Caddo Parish had issued a Louisiana Uniform Abuse Prevention Order against the Louisiana native. Glover has been accused of rape and nonconsensual violence – in Shreveport – prompting the judge to grant a sexual assault protective order against him.
According to the report, detailed by CelebWired, Glover was ordered not to abuse, harass or assault the victim in any manner whatsoever. The order was also put in place to prevent Glover from stalking, following, tracking, monitoring, or threatening the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.
L.A. Reformer contacted the Deputy Chief of Police Antwoione White with the Shreveport Police Department through his administrative assistant Cherita Moore to learn more about the case and any updates regarding the investigation but did not receive a response.
Glover, also a minister, has also sparked controversy with provocative imagery and false social media posts. Sources say the faith leader has become known for displaying seemingly unending explicit imagery online, not conforming with generally accepted standards of behavior, especially in relation to sexual matters.
We looked into it and the L.A. Reformer found numerous social media posts depicting sexually suggestive content that has been shared onto Glover’s official TikTok, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Sources with direct knowledge informed the L.A. Reformer that although Glover promotes himself as a minister, the apparently “unbothered” spiritual advisor has continued to constantly stir the pot with “distasteful antics” and by inappropriately posting “offensive and vulgar content.”
“Watching him make obscene gestures and post sexually suggestive pics and videos and sometimes half nudity, and then promote himself as a minister is troubling. That’s just my opinion. But I’m not the only person to express the same sentiment,” one onlooker told the L.A. Reformer. “He is thirsty for clicks,” another source noted.
“I have been with a lot of women, I mean a lot of women,” Glover is alleged to have told a former employee who shared with the L.A. Reformer that the fitness trainer has a habit of labeling women as “his assistant.” But, rather a way to camouflage sexual interest and that behind the scenes he is constantly preying on “all the women.” The source stated, “He is cycled. He pursues and chases women, wooes them, sleeps with them, and then he ghosts them. That’s his lifestyle, that’s who he is.” While stopping short of labeling Glover as a human trafficker, the source did allege that “He is a womanizer.”
“I am not aware of any of this. I have never heard of this information before. This is the first time I’m seeing this.” said Kisha Jordan, the CEO and founder of The Champion Network, who has been one of Glover’s top online supporters. “I don’t know him personally. I never met him face to face. I just saw him in a short christian movie” said the apostle who has been linked to Glover through Facebook.
Jordan’s broadcasting company based in Brooksville, Florida, airs shows on Inspiration TV, boasts thousands of followers, and has expressed a strong interest in collaborating with Glover. However, after the latest series of incidents and narrative surrounding the minister has decided not to link her brand to Glover. Jordan stated, “We will not be reaching out again.”
Some have also questioned Glover’s qualifications – for being a minister, leading him to “constantly have to prove himself” the insider pointed out. Sources with direct knowledge tell the L.A. Reformer, Glover had previously posted a certificate around August 2021 on his official Instagram account confirming he was an ordained minister. However, sources close to the situation say the post is no longer public on Glover’s Instagram page and that it disappeared from his account during the first week of October 2023, amidst him facing public scrutiny for a series of controversial actions, both online and offline.
The L.A. Reformer was able to locate a post of a Bachelor’s degree Glover claims to have received on his transformative journey. The degree supposedly was issued by Angelic Anointed Ministries Bible Institute, based in Bartonsville, Pennsylvania. The company is registered as a non-profit under 501(c)(3) of the United States Code, with an EIN issued by the IRS as 47:2053360.
We made an attempt to reach Angelic Anointed Ministries Inc., Bishop Dan McEaddy and Dr. Shakirah Moore, whose names are printed on the degree in question, however the website belonging to the organization has been deactivated and no phone number was provided. An attempt to reach the organization via facebook proved futile.
The L.A. Reformer found that the validity and issuance of the degree from the bible institute is skeptical, because the date on the degree Glover posted online is June 24, 2023. However, public records show the company was last seen December 31, 2022.
Glover has been readily believable on his social media because of probable elements therein, however the latest scandal has uncovered massive digital deception. The London Journal uncovered in their investigation that Glover had falsely claimed that he was inducted into the Hall of Honor at his high school in late 2022.
The school officials confirmed to the outlet last week that Glover had not received the distinction. “Kenyon Glover was not inducted into any Hall of Honor at Neville.” the London Journal report reads.
A recent report from Men’s Vanity magazine reported that Glover linked himself to a talent company and speakers association who both claimed that he is not connected to him. Representatives from the National Speakers Association North Texas told the outlet that “Kenyon Glover is not a member of our organization” — even though Glover asserted online that he was.
The outlet also discovered that Glover had proclaimed he was affiliated with American Talent Management, located in Burbank, during a time when he was not on their roster. “We do not represent Mr. Glover, and haven’t for some time,” Spencer Flomar, a partner and talent manager with American Talent Management told the magazine.
Glover, a former California resident, according to Patch Pasadena, has been a staple in the entertainment industry securing film and TV roles over the past few decades. He has appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Devious Maids, The Young and The Restless, and others.
Prior to TV features, Glover was a stand out athlete beginning in his hometown of Monroe, Louisiana, then on to the University of Maine where he is believed to have played for the college prior to reportedly playing professional basketball in England.
More recently Glover has been widely promoted online by Maurice Townes, President of Senwot Network Films, as an endorser for his SNFilms, a subsidiary of Senwot Nella Media. Senwot is a television broadcast and motion picture industry development and production company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
According to the website, the mission of Senwot Network Media’s film division is to produce motion pictures and television shows that provide viewers with current, candid and resourceful information on controversial topics and misinterpreted issues that affect the beliefs of society. Through its films, documentaries, drama series, and news series, the company claims to reach more than 30 million households.
According to the movie site faithhopegrace.com and also on Glover’s Instagram, the actor is currently starring in the film by the same name playing the role of a pastor. Faith based companies Romans VIII Entertainment, Romans VIII Films, DreamFrame Capital, and FHG Christian Films are the creators behind the project.
A new report suggests that Glover fled from California to escape his past and start anew in Texas. Sources close to the situation told FemmeTheFashion that Glover was maintaining employment and a new identity employed at a fitness gym in Coppell, Texas, where he goes by the name “Ken.” According to the fashion magazine, the model and actor was served legal documents at a fitness gym by Dallas County law enforcement.
Earlier this year, Kim and Glover were all smiles as seen photographed together in Irving, Texas. However, in light of the latest media scandal, Kim has chosen to distance herself, as well as her company Chong Kim, LLC, from Glover.
The beloved filmmaker, in alignment with her commitment to upholding the integrity of her project, made the difficult but necessary decision to remove Glover from the cast of ‘E40S.’ This move ensures that the film remains a powerful platform for addressing crucial issues without compromising the principles she vehemently advocates for.
Kim’s decision to disassociate the film series from Glover raises pertinent questions about the responsibility of those in positions of authority and the measures required to maintain integrity and accountability within the industry.
“Glover’s swift removal from ‘E40S’ underscores the entertainment industry’s increasing intolerance for sexual misconduct. It serves as a powerful reminder that individuals will be held accountable for their actions, irrespective of their professional status,” said author John Carter.
Others told the L.A. Reformer that the women’s allegations are indicative of a broader trend during Glover’s career.
“Kenyon has stepped on so many people to try to achieve fame and is using God’s name as a way to promote himself while not having any pastoral duties under his leadership for the past several years,” according to a source. “All people have to do is look at his social feeds to see he is not authentic, especially when it comes to the achievement levels. I feel sorry for the Christian women who do not realize he is a predator,” the source contended.
“Between the allegations of sexual misconduct, that domestic violence charge, shameful pictures on social media and those restraining orders that’s not good for him and has certainly cast a shadow over his career,” a casting director who works out of Santa Monica told L.A. Reformer. “He’s in a tough place trying to navigate the faith based sector too,” the entertainment executive explained.
Once celebrated as a rising star in Hollywood, Kenyon Glover’s career has taken an unexpected nosedive, marked by a severely tarnished reputation and potential legal repercussions stemming from unsettling claims of misconduct.
“This situation underscores the evolving approach to handling such allegations, irrespective of an individual’s standing in the industry. Hollywood is witnessing a paradigm shift, emphasizing accountability and transparency in a way that was previously unprecedented,” Hollywood reporter and entertainment insider Paul Smith said.
With the rapid spread of the disturbing news in the states and abroad, the L.A. Reformer wanted to present all entities Glover has been linked to an opportunity to respond based on their association with him.
Glover’s representative did not immediately respond to the L.A. Reformer’s request for comment. An inquiry to Glover’s talent agent, T. A. Goldberg Entertainment went unanswered. Request for comment on the FaithHopeGrace movie website went unanswered.
The University of Maine didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. In a statement, one of Glover’s former publicists called the London Journal report “spot on.”
Emails sent to Senwot Network Media went unanswered.
