UPDATE: Gospel Singer James Fortune Facing 15 Years for Almost Killing His Wife — WITH A BAR STOOL!
Lord, have mercy it's been rumored that James Fortune kids called an ambulance after dad kicked and stomped mommy pelvis and legs and the hospital called the police after treating her injuries. This is truly horrible!

Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love and support in light of the recent news. I am truly sorry for the negative attention this situation has brought my wife, family, friends and business partners. Because it is a pending legal matter, I cannot comment on what has been reported. However, I understand the seriousness of this matter and ask that you respect the privacy of my family as we address this together.
Note: all this negative press could put a damper on the star studded birthday celebration.Update: James Fortune legal team speaks:
My name is Dorian Cotlar. I am a criminal defense attorney in private practice and I represent Mr. James Fortune on an allegation of domestic violence. Like many in the Houston-area, I saw a very brief news story about this situation yesterday evening on the local news. The primary "contributor" to this story is attorney Toni Jones-Stroman. Ms. Jones-Stroman's statement that she "believes" that Mrs. Fortune suffered either a broken pelvis or a broken leg is reckless and absolutely not true. Mrs. Fortune went to the hospital only briefly. I personally visited with her at my home on Sunday night. She displayed no injuries or signs of injuries whatsoever. Mrs. Fortune is also stating that her husband did not assault her. Ostensibly, Ms. Jones-Stroman practices both family and criminal law. One would hope that she would understand the presumption of innocence and not put baseless facts into the media. Although Mr. Fortune is anxious to make a public statement, I have instructed him not to do so. We are denying these allegations and this case will be aggressively defended where it is supposed to be - in a Fort Bend County Court, not in the media. Please contact me if you have any additional questions.
Thank you. Dorian Cotlar
