Besides immoral behavior, the record of heavy-handed behavior by PL is widespread. Read some of the testimonies of people who attempted to serve God under this man's leadership. Witness Lee's "personal chef" ran a very messy kitchen.
Current elders would claim it is rumors and hearsay which is why I tend to draw parallels between Living Stream Ministry and Isaiah 5:20.

If it was rumors, how come there was no lawsuit against the LA Times? Philip allegedly threatened to sue brothers for wanting to use hymns from the hymnal LSM publishes.
