Vanessa Long, the wife of shamed megachurch leader Bishop Eddie Long, has moved out of the couple’s Atlanta mansion.
Vanessa Long has left the New Birth Church altogether and has started worshipping instead at the Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral, which is under the ministerial direction of Bishop Dale Bronner.
As Reported By The Voice Online:
Sources close to the couple claim that Vanessa Long moved out of their Atlanta mansion over the weekend, taking one of the children with her.
Her departure comes after months of speculation about Bishop Long’s inappropriate relationship with male members of his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.
Last year it was alleged that the popular TV pastor has coerced four male parishioners of his church into sex.
One suit detailed Long’s sexual interactions with plaintiff, Anthony Flagg, 21, stating: “Long shared a bedroom and engaged in intimate sexual contact with plaintiff Flagg including kissing, massaging, masturbating of plaintiff Flagg by defendant Long and oral sexual contact,” the suit says.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Bishop Long had settled out of court with his accusers so that the sexual misconduct case would not go to trial.
