Dinesh Dâ€™Souza posted the statement on his website after the board of The Kingâ€™s College announced his resignation Thursday.
The evangelical magazine WORLD reported he was engaged to one woman while still married to another. He says leaving the college will allow him to address â€œpersonal matters.â€
Dâ€™Souza directed the political documentary â€œ2016: Obamaâ€™s America.â€ He says he and his wife have been separated since 2010.
Dâ€™Souza took his fiancee to a Christian values conference last month in South Carolina. Organizers confronted him after concluding he shared a hotel room there with his fiancee. He insists they stayed in separate rooms.
