What the Hayell? Bishop Eddie Long Seeking to Get His Settlement Money Back

What the Hayell? Bishop Eddie Long Seeking to Get His Settlement Money BackJust when you thought the drama with Bishop Eddie Long was over, you hear something like this. It is being reported that Bishop Long is seeking to recoup a big chunk of his settlement money from the young men who accused him of sexual coercion. Long’s attorneys have informed Jamal Parris, Spencer LeGrande and Centino Kemp that they have violated the terms of the confidentiality agreement they made with Long a few months ago. As a result, Pastor Long and his attorneys are trying to get their money back, feeling that they did not get a return on their secrecy investment.
Long and his lawyers are trying to get back at least $900,000 that has already been paid to the men, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The men accused Long of using his influence, money and power to coerce the boys into engaging in sexual activities with him over a period of time. Although Long promised that the truth would be revealed, the case was settled behind closed doors.
Kemp has announced that he is writing a book about his experience with Long. He describes the book as a story of ”love, lust, power, extravagant living and travel, betrayal, deceit, rape, down-low homosexual lifestyle, molestation, church corruption, secret societies, suicide attempts and religion.”
Jamal Parris says that speaking out on the matter is therapeutic for them.
“I don’t care if this book sells one copy. But if it’s just for me, this is what my life looked like, this is my voice for the first time,” Parris told WSB-TV.
While Long continues to deny the allegations, membership in the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church has been buzzing for months over whether their anti-gay pastor might be a homosexual himself. The case appears to be far from over.
