NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Gospel singer BeBe Winans has been charged with misdemeanor domestic assault after a dispute with his ex-wife in Nashville.

An arrest warrant filed Wednesday says 46-year-old Benjamin “BeBe” Winans (WHY’-nans) got into argument with his ex-wife about their children at her home on Feb 13.

The warrant says Debra Winans told authorities Benjamin Winans pushed her to the ground.

He was released from the Davidson County jail Thursday after posting $1,000 bond.

Winans says in a statement that “the allegations are inconsistent with my character.”

Winans is a judge on BET’s television show “Sunday Best.” The four-time Grammy award-winner has recorded gospel albums with his sister CeCe Winans.
