NEW YORK (AP) - A scholar behind a high-grossing conservative documentary that condemns President Barack Obama is under investigation by the evangelical college he leads in New York.

The board of The King's College is questioning school president Dinesh D'Souza about his relationship with a woman who is not his wife.

The newsmagazine WORLD reports D'Souza last month attended a conference in South Carolina on Christian values with a woman he called his fiancee. Event organizers told WORLD they confronted D'Souza after learning he and the woman shared a hotel room. D'Souza filed for divorce in California a few days later.

D'Souza told The Associated Press on Tuesday he and his wife have been separated for two years. He denies staying in the hotel room with the other woman.

D'Souza directed the film "2016: Obama's America."
