Bishop Eddie Long’s Wife Files For Divorce

100

December 2, 2011 by The ReadyWriter


According to CBS Atlanta 46, the long-suffering wife of embattled Atlanta prosperity preacher, Bishop Eddie Long, has filed for divorce.

Vanessa G. Long released a statement early Friday morning announcing her decision to terminate her marriage to Bishop Long, who is the leader of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, GA.

The statement reads as follows:

“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.

Thank you, and may God continue to bless and keep each of you.”

The divorce proceeding follows a tumultuous year for the Bishop, who, earlier this year, settled sexual misconduct lawsuits brought on by 4 former Longfellow Youth Academy students, and a fifth man who was not included in the suit.

    She used the term “terminate”….guess the marriage has become too much of a job to her…Bless her heart. He totally embarassed her….its one thing to have jumpoffs but messing with boys!!! 😦 if you ask me she was in it a year too long. I pray for that church family…It wont be long before he is renting out a store front to have service…

I am sure this has been very hard on her and I am sure she has shed plenty of tears. I pray that she gets the privacy she requested. As hard as this decision was for her to make, I believe the hard part is behind her. From this day forward, Vanessa will be fine.

      I saw this coming….These pastor wives always do this when there husband is exposed publicly. Im standing by my man act first then they leave when the smoke has cleared. Probably been sleeping in separate rooms since all this started and not really speaking in private but smiling and putting up a front in public. I believe she knew or heard about his secret lifestyle but as long as the public was fooled it was ok. She was living a great lifestyle being married to him. Money, Power, traveling, Mansion, private plane, rubbing shoulders with VIP’s. Im sure she didn’t want to leave all that. I bet many women in that church wanted to be in her shoes. Everything that glitters sure ain’t Gold.
