The board of The Kingís College announced school president DíSouza was stepping down immediately. DíSouza has said heís done nothing wrong. He could not be reached for comment.
The resignation was announced two days after the evangelical magazine World reported that DíSouza spoke at a Christian values event in South Carolina and brought along his fiancee. Organisers said they confronted DíSouza after concluding that he and his fiancee had shared a hotel room while attending the gathering.
DíSouza said he did not share the room. In a brief interview Tuesday with The Associated Press, DíSouza said he and his wife, Dixie, have been ďliving in a state of separation for two yearsĒ.
DíSouza filed for divorce in California a few days after the South Carolina conference, according to court records. He told the AP he had called off his engagement.
The Kingís College, located in New York City, aims to shape young Christians as future leaders in all parts of society. DíSouza is a former policy analyst under President Ronald Reagan and an author known most recently for his critical works on Obama. His film has become one of the most successful political documentaries ever released, grossing more than $32 million to date.
