In the latest development in a scandal-filled saga that has been playing out over the last year at his ministry compound, Kent Hovind’s ex-girlfriend/ wife has taken an order of protection against the disgraced creationist, claiming that he physically abused her by ‘body-slamming her’ and has engaged in a pattern of psychological torture and gaslighting, making her fear for her life, according to KenVRLB
Hovind, also known as Dr. Dino, has a creation ministry of sorts that is run through his Alabama-based Dinosaur Adventure Land; a somewhat decrepit touristy destination where people can camp and explore the trails on ATVs and visit his creation exhibits. Routinely expressing and advocating for sovereign citizen conspiracies, he famously spent almost a decade in prison after being convicted of nearly 50 federal counts of tax fraud, at the time claiming that he didn’t owe anyone taxes (especially not Ceasar) because everything he owned belonged to God.
In the petition where it lists the types of abuse she endured, along with why she fears the defendant will cause her further abuse, Cindy Lincoln explains:
“He body slammed me causing ER Visit and damage on Chiropractors Report’…He wants to shut me up. He is dependent upon public opinion for his livelihood…(I) fear he will kill me to shut me up.”
She further notes that she was menaced with guns and experienced “threatening language from his cohorts.” She says she wants to keep him and his friends away from her home and wants to “make Kent Hovind pay medical bills for the injuries he caused by him body-slamming me. ”
She finally asks the court to have Hovind reimburse her for any pain and suffering compensation the court sees fit to grant her as a result of Hovind publicly and routinely defaming her, resulting in her being further “psychologically traumatized.”
At play here is the fact that Hovind’s personal life is in disarray and stained by sinful, selfish, and self-justifying choices,
He married his first wife Jo in 1973 and they stayed together until their divorce in March of 2016.
He then married Mary Tocco in September 2016, though no sexual adultery had taken place in his former marriage, making him an adulterer. They did not get a marriage license and instead had a private religious ceremony. That ‘marriage’ lasted a little more than a year, and then they ‘divorced’ in 2017 after she discovered that he was behaving shady with the money again, and not on account of adultery.
He then got ‘married’ again in 2018 to Cindy Lincoln, becoming twice an adulterer in a private ceremony, and then he ‘divorced’ her and put her out in 2020, also without a legal marriage or divorce.
Despite referring to Cindy on camera multiple times as his wife, in the filing his lawyers are trying to circumvent this order of protection by arguing that the nature of their relationship does not qualify for her to take this sort of spousal order of protection against him. Ie, we weren’t legally married, so this restraining order doesn’t apply.
While Cindy’s account has not been proven in court, she did post an audio recording of the alleged abusive incident, (warning: very disturbing) along with screenshots of of marriage contracts and monetary stipulations. Taken as a whole, it appears that Hovid’s desire for her money is somehow all tied up in this, as he made multiple attempts to bribe her, blackmail her and have her sign all her money over to his ministry. Truly, there is some awe-inspiring scumbaggery taking place on the part of Hovind. For more details on all dark and disturbing rabbit hole, click here.
We will hopefully have some clarity in a few weeks when the Judge is set to rule on the nature of their marriage and figure out what the heck is going on.
