A celebrity pastor fired from a popular international church sold his Montclair mansion days before his cheating scandal hit the tabloids.

Carl Lentz and wife Laura sold their Heller Way home for $1.5 million on Oct. 23, a Halstead sales associate told the New York Post.

Eleven days later, Hillsong Church's founding pastor announced Lentz had been fired due to "moral failures" and "breaches of trust."

Lentz -- Justin Bieber's former "spiritual advisor" -- said on Instagram the following day that he had, in fact, cheated on his wife.

NJ Parcels shows the 2,928-square-foot home at 59 Heller Way was purchased for approximately $1.2 million in May 2017, although the buyer's name had been redacted by request.
