California mega-church leader Bishop Noel Jones is the father of 'X-Factor' finalist Stacy Francis' second child.

Rumors began swirling when a very-pregnant Francis, now 42, appeared on VH1's 'Beverly Hills Fabulous' and told hairstylist Elgin Charles, “I just finished going through a divorce. We were actually separated and we were going through the divorce and it’s not his baby.”
It has since been discovered that Francis was going through a divorce from her husband and the father of her first child, Darwin Kyle Hayes, when she had an affair with the Bishop, 62, resulting in the birth of Anastasia Noelle Jones.
The Bishop runs the City of Refuge Church. He is brother to singer Grace Jones and has been previously linked to NeNe Leakes and LisaRaye.
