Televangelist Benny Hinn, who late last month announced that he was reconciling with former wife Suzanne Hinn has cleared up the reason for his divorce. It boiled down to addiction.
Suzanne Hinn filed the papers in Orange County Superior Court on Feb. 1 2010, citing irreconcilable differences, after more than 30 years of marriage. The papers note the two separated on Jan. 26 and that Hinn has been living in Dana Point, a wealthy coastal community in southern Orange County. Benny Hinn is one of the best known advocates of the prosperity gospel, which teaches that Christians who are right with God will be rewarded with wealth and health in this lifetime.

“Suzanne started taking certain prescription medications to help her cope with some of her personal struggles. She became dependent on those for nearly 15 years, and those medications made her behave erratically at times,” As her husband, I did not know the extent of her reliance on these medications, nor did I fully understand just how much harm they were causing to her, physically and emotionally.” -Hinn wrote in a message on his ministry website.
