Bishop Eddie Long’s Wife, Vanessa Files for Divorce!!!

2 Dec

This morning, Vanessa Long, wife of the scandalized Bishop Eddie Long released the following statement:

After a great deal of deliberation and prayer, I have decided to terminate my marriage to Bishop Eddie L. Long. Accordingly, I authorized my attorneys to file for divorce on December 1, 2011. It is my sincere hope that this matter can be resolved expeditiously, harmoniously, and fairly. I ask that you respect my privacy and that of my family, as my attorneys and I have agreed that we will not try this case in the media, and I do not intend to make any further statements concerning this matter.”

Vanessa and Eddie have been separated since June. She, and the couple’s three children, moved out of the family compound.

Last year,  Maurice Robinson, Jamal Parris, Anthony Flagg and Spencer LeGrande sued Long, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and the LongFellows Youth Academy, alleging sexual misconduct on the part of the bishop. The four alleged that Long took them on trips and gave them expensive gifts in turn for sexual favors. The suits resulted in a multi-million dollar out-of-court settlement.

Vanessa also no longer attends New Birth Church.  She attends Bishop Dale Bronner’s church, Word of Faith Family Worship cathedral.
