Brittany Koper, the granddaughter of TBN founder Paul Crouch Sr.,
and former chief financial officer of Trinity Broadcasting, filed a lawsuit Jan. 29 against her former company and its top bosses for allegedly threatening her with a loaded gun when she objected to “unlawful distributions” of $100 million to themselves and others.

“The nature of these illegal activities involved the systematic diversion of defendant Trinity Broadcasting’s charitable assets through unlawful distributions to defendant Trinity Broadcasting’s directors through numerous channels. The magnitude of these unlawful and related financial schemes uncovered by or disclosed to plaintiff Brittany Koper is on the order of $100 million,” alleges the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court Central District of California.
