Reader, I found the above post on my timeline this morning and thought it was interesting; especially the comments. COGIC Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake and his lovely wife Mae in August listed their longtime Beverly Hills Mansion for sale.
The 13,094-square-foot estate has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There’s a racquetball court, sauna, gym, two family rooms and French doors that open to the property’s outdoor garden and swimming pool, according to listings details. It also has a gated circular driveway and four-car garage. The couple purchased the home for $4.3 million in 2002, property records show.
Bishop Blake is currently named in a $15 million lawsuit filed in October 2016 by Pacific Mount Olive COGIC in L.A. The suit alleges Blake and two other church leaders tried to take control of Pacific Olive’s building and several of its properties including an apartment complex. The case appears to be pending.
