Where is David Shamblin Now?

January 31, 2024

David shamblin is a popular name when it comes to the latest docuseries on HBO Max, “The Way Down God, Greed, and Gwen Shamblin Lara’s Cult.” People are curious about his whereabouts as he was Gwen’s ex-husband. He is a private person and prefers to keep his personal details away from the public.

The couple met and married in 1978, a few years before Gwen founded the Weigh Down Workshop, a Christian dieting class that catapulted her to fame. During their marriage, he supported his wife as she became a popular religious figure. They were able to grow the business into a multimillion-dollar empire, but they were eventually unable to cope with the demands of their work and personal life. They divorced, angering a congregation conditioned to believe that divorce is a sin.

After her divorce, Gwen remarried in 2018 to Joe Lara, an actor known for his role in the movie Tarzan. The couple lived together in a mansion in Brentwood. The two children they had together, Michael and Elizabeth, continue to lead Remnant Fellowship Church.

The tragic plane crash in May 2021 that killed many leaders of the church, including Gwen and her new husband Joe, was caused by a pilot’s misperception of the angle of the aircraft. Joe Lara, who was the jet’s pilot, also happened to be a member of the church. This made the plane crash even more painful for many of the families of the victims.
