Relentless Church pastor John Gray gave his wife, Aventer Gray, a Lamborghini Urus this week.

The gifting was recorded and posted on Instagram, but the video has since been removed.

Fortune magazine described the Lamborghini as priced starting at $200,000 in 2017.

Singer Tyrese attended the couple’s anniversary vow renewal and posted on Instagram: “Honored to have been there to see and witness every moment. Pastor John Gray and his beautiful First Lady renewed their vows after 8 years of marriage. Fairy tail (sic) grace and magic. Honored and honored again to have been in the room and apart of you guys magical evening.”

In response to the Instagram post showing the car being given to Aventer Gray, there have been many comments criticizing the gift, particularly questioning where the money to pay for it came from.

Aventer Gray took to Instagram in defense of her husband, saying John Gray has many sources of income and is generous to many people.

“MY HUBBY IS A HARD-WORKER, HE WORKED HIS WHOLE LIFE AND HE SAVED TO BLESS HIS WIFE!!! REALJOHNGRAY AUTHOR X2, SILENT ENDORSEMENTS (YOU KNOW BECAUSE EVERYONE DOESN’T HAVE TO BRAG ABOUT WHO THEY ARE SIGNED TO) SIX TV SHOWS, MOVIE PRODUCER, SONG WRITER, TOURS,” she posted. “Gives away cars, full houses of furniture, coats off his back, checks before pastoring and tithes that in its entirety between 2 churches AND those he feels lead to at any given moment.

“I don’t see anyone screaming about how basketball players drive what they do while you paying $$$ to see them play in arenas and on fields. We don’t live for people! We live for God! Back to my regularly scheduled grocery store trip!!! Happy Sunday!”

The Christian Post reported that Gray’s wife gifted him the “‘green box’ Rolex,” referring to the Rolex Explorer II, with an $8,000 price tag.
