Bishop Eddie Long Had a Fifth Accuser

Vodpod videos no longer available.

See, I knew that there were more than just four young guys.   (I feel there were more than just five guys, too.)  And it appears to me that this young man was unnamed at the time because he is a very obvious queen who is either a transsexual or a transvestite.  I can well imagine what would have occurred if his identity had surfaced much earlier, but it may well be that the plaintiffs’ attorney, B.J. Bernstein, brought him in as a powerful incentive towards sealing that settlement deal before the trial ensued.  Can you imagine this young man on the witness stand?  As usual, Dale Russell is on the case and it came out last night on Fox 5 in Hotlanta.

The FOX 5 I-Team has uncovered that there was a fifth accuser in the Bishop Eddie Long sexual misconduct case. He never filed a lawsuit and his name was kept a secret, but Centino Kemp’s allegations of sexual misconduct against Bishop Long brought him front and center into the recent settlement negotiations.

Senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell has crisscrossed the city of Atlanta searching for the mysterious fifth young man. Centino Kemp, sometimes called Centinio, is young– barely 22. We’re told he met Bishop Long years ago. He has Long’s name tattooed on his wrist, and he is currently recording songs written from the perspective of an angry lover.

For nearly two months, Russell searched all over Atlanta for Centino Kemp, and finally caught up with him leaving this small recording studio. He was happy to talk about his music. But he didn’t want to talk about anything else.

The well-known sex scandal involving Bishop Eddie Long, began when four young men, all former members of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, filed suit accusing the bishop of lavishing money, trips and gifts on the young adult s, while having sexual contact with them.

The case was finally settled in secret back in May.   Sources tell us an undisclosed amount of money was paid to the young men. Bishop Long, in court papers, denied the allegations and later issued a statement saying it was time to move forward.

Now, the I-Team has learned that after the initial lawsuits were filed , Centino Kemp came forward with similar allegations of sexual misconduct against Bishop Long. Our sources say he became involved in the settlement talks. He was the mystery man. Though his name was never made public, the I-Team has learned he may have played a significant role in the mediation.

Our source says Kemp has been taking part in countless $100 an hour sessions in Atlanta recording studios for the past two months.

Some are profanity-laced, sexually-charged stories of angry, jilted lovers, like Kemp’s song titled Pornography.

According to various social media posts, Centino Kemp is 22 years old, single, tattooed, and always sporting different looks. He tweets openly of gay rights, and dreams of taking the recording world by storm.

One source says Centino Kemp, who was raised in the Bahamas, met Bishop Eddie Long years ago during a visit to New Birth while he was a teenage student in a Florida college. The relationship meant enough for him to tattoo Eddie Long’s name on his wrist, followed by the words, “Never a Mistake, Always a Lesson.”

Um, where does young brother get the money for  all these recording sessions? And for the stretch limo?  No, he’s not tricking.   He got his cut of settlement money from Bishop Long as well, which may be a reason why he doesn’t want to loosen his lips.  He may be under the same restrictions as the other young men regarding interviews, books, etc.  about what occurred.   And then again, Kemp is nothing like the other young men who were angry at being manipulated and used by Long.  I have a feeling that Kemp may have residual feelings for the bishop, hence the continuing existence of the tattoos.   I could see a Jamal Parris going through plastic surgery–lasers–to erase any tats with Long’s name on his body, but not this guy.

An unnamed attorney who was quoted in the above news report claimed that Kemp’s presence made Bishop Long very uncomfortable.  And why not?  Not only is he a proud gay man, he’s a flaming, proud gay man.  No wonder the bishop settled with a quickness.  Anything to keep this child of the Universe from testifying.  And I don’t mean in church.

Interesting.  It never ends, does it?

Naturally, Long’s remaining parishioners over at New Birth are still unfazed and defiant about their devotion to the disgraced cleric.

Touching.  As I have said before, this is a cult.  True believers won’t ever see reason.

This is bigger than the school district administrator who is under investigation for allowing Bishop Long’s daughter to participate at her graduation day exercises when she had not completed all of her high school credits.   Senior Taylor Long had been pulled out of high school by her parents, probably for her own protection, during the sex scandal that had enveloped her infamous father.  Unfortunately, Taylor matriculated at her father’s religious school, which may not have had the accreditation or the transferable credits necessary for her to graduate.   A student’s concerned parent is said to have learned that Long was marching with her class, and made a complaint.   As a result, Taylor was not allowed to graduate or march at that time.  The school district is trying to find out whether the administrator capitulated to Bishop Long’s celebrity and promises.

More shoes are bound to drop regarding the news about Centino Kemp, though.   Stay tuned.

One Response to “Bishop Eddie Long Had a Fifth Accuser”

  1. How many ministers and so-called “people of God” do we have to fall for before Black people start having a serious discussing about the unhealthy roles church and religion play in our community?
