The founder and senior pastor of the City Harvest Church in Singapore, Kong Hee, along with five other church members, has been found guilty of funneling $35.5 million in church donations into his wife's failed U.S. pop career. Kong Hee's wife, Reverend Ho Yeow Sun (known by her stage name Sun Ho) attempted to break into the U.S. music market in 2007 with her single "China Wine."

The music video was directed by Wayne Isham and featured Wyclef Jean and Elephant Man. After the single failed to chart in the U.S., Sun came back in 2009 with her Joseph Kahn-directed video "Fancy Free.""Fancy Free" was supposed to be the lead single to her debut U.S. album, but her album never came out because police ended up investigating the misuse of church donations in 2010.

Just where did some of that money go?

$1.5 million to Wyclef Jean (co-writer and executive producer on her album)

$1.5 million to Missy Elliott (a music video appearance)

David Foster (GRAMMY-winning music producer)

Wayne Isham (directed her "China Wine" music video)

Joseph Kahn (directed her "Fancy Free" music video)





Kong Hee, who was found guilty, faces 11 to 12 years in prison. Back in October, a judge described his wife (pictured above at the 2010 GRAMMY Awards) Sun's U.S. success as being "inflated."
