"I do not know Post Malone, and I have no idea why he would say reckless things about our church, which he has never visited," he continued. "Justin has not given our church $10 million, and we do not have gold ceilings. We do not even own a church building. So that gives you a little insight about how serious you can take his observations about anything to do with us."
Despite the tension, Lentz added that he's still a Post Malone fan. "He is a very gifted artist," he said, "and I wish him nothing but the best."
In Rolling Stone's original, wide-ranging story, a source close to Bieber also denied that he's donated $10 million. During the same conversation, Post Malone labeled the mega-church "a total cult" while praising the Purpose singer as a "fucking awesome, great dude" and "genuine friend."
