A boujie Brooklyn bishop showed off his massive closet filled with designer clothes and shoes more than a week after he was robbed at gunpoint by three men while live-streaming a sermon.
Lamor Whitehead showed his followers his flashy display of thousands of dollars in clothes during a live-streamed video obtained by World Star on August 1.
The pastor was robbed on July 24 while speaking to his congregation while the men burst into the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in Brooklyn, New York. However, the stolen jewelry appears to be only a dent in the pastor’s pocket.
Whitehead styled a white beanie and hoodie saying: ‘Good afternoon, good afternoon everybody. This is the bishop, Bishop Whitehead, and I’ll walk down to my prayer closet.’
Whitehead proceeds to give an over-the-shoulder view of his ‘prayer closet’ painted in white and lime green. Shelves of clothing are seen along the walls while sealed bags of clothes and boxes lay untouched on the ground.

A section of his closet was reserved for his church robes
The young pastor had a variety of colored suits in his collection. He breezed through his clothing that hung in his massive white and lime green colored apartment
‘One would think that, “wow, look at your closet,”‘ he said while giving a closer look at his designer clothing.
‘Got all my priestly robes and more. Designer coats, you name it – Gucci – Loui – you name it. Fendi, you name it,’ he said before turning his attention to the unopened boxes and clothing bags on the floor.
‘More coats,’ he said before turning into a secluded section of his closet for his shoes.
‘Every designer wear. Designer wear for days and days and days and days,’ he said.
Whitehead pointed out a majority of his clothing while insisting that he had it all, including all the big designer names
In a small room inside his closet, the pastor walked into his secluded shoe closet. Loafers, dress shoes, tennis shoes, and more were displayed along the three walls
‘Designer wear for days and days and days and days,’ he said while showing different portions of his shoe collection
Whitehead was robbed at his church prior to the video being taken. On July 24, the pastor was preaching to his congregation while dressed in a maroon suit while styling a long gold chain and a large ring on each finger.
Whitehead was videoed telling his faithful before the men arrived with guns: ‘How many of you have lost your faith because you saw somebody else die?’
He is then seen falling to his knees when he sees the robbers, is also heard saying: ‘All right, all right.’ The men are then seen circling around the stage as they rob the bishop, his wife and the congregation.

Police confirmed that the robbery stole $400,000-worth of jewelry in Canarsie around 11.15am.
Mr Whitehead later told his followers on social media that his congregation is now ‘traumatized’ by the incident along with his young daughter.
Later on Instagram, Whitehead said when the three men, which he described as black, burst in he was concerned for his congregation.
He said: ‘To come into a church and traumatize young women and children. The children are still crying. The women are still crying. My wife is crying. You did this to the church and the church where your grandmother praised the Lord.’
Whitehead founded his Brooklyn-based ministry, registered as a for-profit business since March 2014. The Bishop has been active in raising funds for it through self-created youth mentorship programs
Describing the events of Sunday, he explained on Instagram that the robbers aimed a gun at his back while they took his bishops cross and the jewelry he was wearing from on top of and under his shirt.
Bishop Whitehead said: ‘I told everyone to get down. I didn’t know if they wanted to shoot the church up or were coming for a robbery.
‘They took all my wife’s jewelry and all my jewelry.’
The churchman also said he ran after the robbers and saw them take off their masks and get away in a white Mercedes.
