AUSTIN (CBS11) – The Austin pastor who is suing Whole Foods over a cake he says contained a gay slur, has money troubles.

Court documents show Jordan Brown is being sued for defaulting on nearly $28,000 in student loans.

The lawsuit was filed in March.

Last week, Brown said a Whole Foods baker put a gay slur on a cake he ordered.

Whole Foods says Brown is lying and is suing him for defamation.

The company says the accused bakery worker is part of the LGBT community.

The Austin pastor who is suing Whole Foods over a cake he says contained a gay slur, has money troubles.

Court documents show Jordan Brown is being sued for defaulting on nearly $28,000 in student loans.

The lawsuit was filed in March.

Last week, Brown said a Whole Foods baker put a gay slur on a cake he ordered.

Whole Foods says Brown is lying and is suing him for defamation.

The company says the accused bakery worker is part of the LGBT community.

On Tuesday, the company released video of Brown buying that cake.

Company officials say the Whole Foods video shows the UPC sticker on top of the box, not on the bottom, like the one shown in Brown’s video.

Brown is sticking to his story. “It’s more than just a cake,” says Brown. “As a 30-year-old openly gay pastor, I have had to face years of discrimination and judgment for something that I had no control over.”

Whole Food says the bakery worker now accused of writing the slur is part of the LGBT community.

The company is suing for defamation and seeking $100,000 in damages.
