James Fortune Speaks On His Recent Arrest And Allegations


Having released seven albums and currently hosting a nationally syndicated radio show, “The James Fortune Show,” Fortune knows the news of his arrest has had an impact on both his music fans and radio listeners.

“I would also like to thank my fans for their outpouring of love and support,” he concluded.

In 2012, Fortune was sued by his then 15-year-old stepson’s biological father in a civil lawsuit for $5 million for child abuse.

His stepson’s father alleged that Fortune had abused his son when he was four-years-old by putting him in scolding hot water as punishment for coloring on a table.

At the time, Fortune attributed the allegations by his wife Cheryl Fortune’s ex as an attack on his “increased profile and financial viability” and contested the matter in civil court. The stepson, now 17, has had “continuous uninterrupted open visitations” since 2001 and was actually living with Fortune during his summer break when the civil suit was made public.

The negative press generated from the lawsuit was Fortune’s inspiration for penning the song ‘Live Through It’ from his 2014 release via eOne Entertainment, “Identity.”

Last fall in Atlanta during a live recording for “Identity” and when discussing ‘Live Through It,’ he said: “the song was a word of encouragement that God gave to me. We all have to go through different struggles, different storms in this life, as believers, but we can live through it if we pray through it. God says I’m only allowing it because I know it will make you better.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
