Christian singer Michael English had an affair with another Christian artist, Marabeth Jordan. In an interview with CBN.com, Michael English explains that the affair started during a musical tour.
The affair with Marabeth Jordan occurred in the late 1990s, which was the same time period when English was experiencing an addiction to painkiller medication. His struggles with an affair and addiction led to his divorce, and in his words, he did not feel "whole again" until he met Marcie Stambaugh, who he married in 2002. The fallout from his affair, divorce and addiction caused Michael to lose much of the support he had gained in his years as a musician, though he expressed in the CBN.com interview that he has regained some of that support as his career started growing again.
