JULIANNA Zobrist allegedly cheated on her ex-Cubs star husband Ben with their pastor and marriage counselor, according to a $6million suit.

Ben Zobrist learned that his wife was having an affair with Byron Yawn, their pastor who is also accused of defrauding the ex-MLB star’s charity, after filing for divorce, the suit says.

The former baseball player, 40, is seeking $6million in damages from Yawn, who was previously a pastor at Community Bible Church in Nashville.

However, Julianna, a Christian electronic pop singer, will argue in next month’s divorce trial that Ben is “guilty of failing to preserve marital assets” because he took a leave of absence to work on their marital issues.

Her suit argues that because of the leave, Ben “essentially went from the top of his game to basically giving up, which caused a massive loss in income.”

In pretrial documents obtained by the Chicago Tribune, Julianna’s attorney states: “In 2019, he[Ben] had a contract with the Chicago Cubs for ($12 million), but since he only played for 2 months, his salary was prorated and he only earned ($4.5 million) of the ($12 million) he could have earned.”

Ben’s attorney issued a response, branding the demand as “utterly absurd.”
