Filed under : Entertainment

Sad day indeed….

According to newsreports just coming in, Elder Vanessa G. Long, the wife of embattled, Bishop Eddie L. Long, has filed for divorce.

Bishop Long, the pastor of the Atlanta-based, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, has been accused of sexual allegations involving four young men and most recently, a lawsuit by filed by former New Birth members, who accuse him of getting them to invest in a Ponzi scheme that wiped out at least $1 million in their retirement savings.

Elder Vanessa 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.I also ask that the public pray for my entire family during this difficult period of transition.

Apparently this is Bishop Eddie L Long‘s second marriage.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Long family, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and especially all those who have been affected and/or impacted by all of the events.
