Gospel singer James Fortune is being sued for allegedly leaving his 4-year-old stepson with severe burns with over 45 percent of his body. The suit says that Fortune picked up his stepson from pre-school after the boy was “misbehaving by coloring on a table.” The suit also says he scolded the boy the entire way home, put him in timeout once home, and beat the child with a switch. Then, Fortune is accused of pushing the toddler in scalding water and holding him down. Fox 26 out of Houston has the story:

A popular gospel singer is accused of doing horrible things to his 4-year-old stepson.  Now he’s being taken to court.

According to a civil lawsuit, gospel music singer James Fortune burned his stepson leaving the boy disfigured with severe burns over nearly 50% of the child’s body.  Fortune, who is from and still lives in the Houston area, is named in the lawsuit with his wife Cheryl Fortune.
According to the suit filed against the couple, James picked up Cheryl’s 4-year old son from pre-school and the teacher said the boy “misbehaved by coloring on a table”.  The documents claim the gospel singer “scolded the toddler” on the way home, put him in time out at home, “continued to yell and berate the child” then started “preparing a scalding bath” for the 4-year old boy.
