Tina Atkins-Campbell revealed to Ebony Magazine how she caught her husband cheating on her with a friend, the couple is now on a 30-day fast to save their marriage.
Tina Atkins-Campbell, one half of Gospel singing duo Mary Mary, made up of sister's Tina and Erica Atkins revealed earlier this month to Ebony Magazine that her husband, Teddy Campbell, a drummer on The Tonight Show had an affair with a friend of hers.
“Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband… I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff. I did physically try to stab him. Several times… I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words… My words hurt,” she told Ebony.
Tina Campbell told Ebony Magazine that her husband conducted the affair with the family friend for two years, only confessing to it recently.
Now in an apparent last ditch effort to save their marriage the couple has resorted to a 30-day period of prayer and fasting.
"Hi fans and friends. It’s Tina. I hope all of you are well and I thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown my sister and I over the years. Well, I'm actually writing you on behalf of my husband Teddy and I. I’m assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness & despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself." Tina wrote to fans on Facebook
The gospel singer continued with her public plea for help from her fans over the weekend.
"My husband’s struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over 2 decades. The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adult. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight. Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance & restoration. If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayer and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other. We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help."
The couple have four children together as well, Teddy Campbell is the father of a child from a previous relationship. Publisher of Christian Women's magazine, Precious Times, Marilyn White applauded the Campbells for their public decision.
"When two or three or gathered things change. I thank God that those two are coming together to sustain and restore their marriage because it’s easy to just leave even for Christians," White continued "I pray that God comforts Tina and provides her the direction in which she needs to go.”
On WeTV's second season of Mary Mary, Tina Campbell attempted to spend more time with her family, sacrificing touring dates and other engagements in order to fix her deteriorating family situation.
