3 passengers didn’t see pastor’s wife assault flight attendant
Vail, CO Colorado
HOUSTON ” Three passengers have told a Houston jury that they didn’t see any signs that the wife of megachurch evangelist Joel Osteen assaulted a flight attendant.
Continental Airlines flight attendant Sharon Brown claims in her lawsuit that Victoria Osteen began yelling at her and then threw her against a bathroom door and elbowed her when a spill on the armrest of her first-class seat wasn’t quickly cleaned up.
But three first-class passengers on the plane testified Wednesday that they never saw or heard anything to indicate that Victoria Osteen assaulted the attendant.
The alleged incident happened before the start of a 2005 flight from Houston to Vail, Colorado.
Brown is asking for an apology and 10 percent of the net worth of Victoria Osteen, the co-pastor of Houston’s famed Lakewood Church. Osteen’s lawyers would not discuss her finances, so it was unclear how much 10 percent would be.
