The judge extended the injunction on Friday against Karleisha Tarver because according to court documents, her actions “may ultimately lead to the death of one of the plaintiffs, their family, their friends, church attendees and/or staff.”

“I would love to comment, but I can’t because this case is pending,” said Faith Johnson, Jakes’ attorney, according to the Star-Telegram.

The short-term restraining order will be in place until a court hearing next week that will determine whether Tarver should be ordered to permanently stay away from Jakes.

Since 2011, Tarver has made several attempts to trespass Jakes’ Fort Worth home and reportedly tried to hit a security officer with her car after he turned her away from entering the property.

She was expelled from the church in 2011 however later that year, Tarver attended a Bible study meeting where she disturbed the gathering by yelling uncontrollably. According to the lawsuit, police issued a criminal trespass citation at the time.

Statement from Bishop T.D. Jakes

An attempt in last Sunday’s sermon to distinguish myself from an American television program portraying preachers in a manner that I found unseemly has caused some offense in Kenya. For that I apologize.

My intent was to show the extensive humanitarian efforts by TD Jakes Ministries through its MegaCARE arm as a means of further distinguishing this organization from the TV program’s exclusive focus on the personal material wealth of the individual ministers over the works of the Gospel.

The attempt was to highlight one well and one hospital wing in Kenya as one example of this ministry’s worldwide efforts. It was by no means meant to take responsibility for an entire nation or to minimize the contributions of its people.

My focus has always been about the mission of helping hurting people in every circumstance of life, anywhere in the world.

The extemporaneous comments when taken out of context convey a meaning far from the intent of my heart. I meant only to communicate to my constituents that my love is for people as demonstrated through years of practical ministry.

The fact that these heart-felt words have been taken to mean anything other than their original intent deeply saddens me.

I love Kenya and the entire continent of Africa. I am proud of its efforts and grateful to have had an opportunity to minister to its people on numerous occasions.

I trust that this explanation will end this apparent misunderstanding.

In His service,

Bishop Jakes
