Two days after the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office released a statement regarding Mica Miller’s death, South Carolina Pastor John-Paul Miller has broken his silence through his attorney, Russell B. Long, and is refuting claims that he “groomed” his wife.

Miller made the shocking announcement that his wife had died by suicide on April 27 at the conclusion of his Solid Rock at Market Common Sunday sermon. Since then, friends and family have been questioning why Mica would have taken her own life and have been disclosing information regarding Miller’s character and the couple’s marriage.

Shortly after making the announcement, Miller told The Christian Post that Mica had been diagnosed with “bipolar II, schizophrenic and dependent personality disorder.”

He also said that he and Mica got married in 2017, when Mica was 21, after an adulterous affair with each other. Both she and he were married to other people at the time of their affair, and they both got divorced so they could marry each other.

The couple first met when Mica was a 14-year-old in the church’s youth group; Miller is 14 years older than Mica. Mica’s friends and family said Mica told them she was groomed by Miller when she was young.

After the North Carolina Medical Examiner’s office determined that Mica died by suicide earlier this week (May 6), the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office released a detailed statement also stating that Mica died by suicide.

Miller is now addressing rumors about himself through his lawyer.

“Following the untimely death of Mica Miller, unfounded rumors and false accusations began circulating on social media and in various media outlets, suggesting Pastor Miller’s involvement in her demise,” Miller’s attorney said. “This created a buzz, causing local and national media outlets to be proliferating these falsehoods, on a mammoth proportion. Our client refutes any report that suggests he ever abused his wife.”

Last Thursday (May 2), Mica’s brother, Nathaniel Francis, and Mica’s sister, Sierra Francis, submitted sworn affidavits to a South Carolina probate court regarding their sister’s estate. In it, Mica’s sister claimed that Mica “expressed abuse and violence against her by her husband.”

Mica’s sister also claimed that Mica was gathering divorce evidence to “support her claims against” her husband’s “abuse, character, his paramours, and associates he paid off or blackmailed.”
