The Bishop Eddie Long sex scandal saga continues! A fifth accuser has been revealed and his name is Centino Kemp (seen below). Kemp never filed a lawsuit against Long but his involvement in the allegations of sexual misconduct brought him front and center into the recent settlement negotiations.
22 year old Kemp, who was raised in the Bahamas, met 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 (seen below) Eddie Long’s name on his wrist, followed by the words, “Never a Mistake, Always a Lesson.” omg!
You may remember, the well-publicized sex scandal involving 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. After the initial lawsuits were filed , Kemp came forward with similar allegations of sexual misconduct against Long. Our sources say he became involved in the settlement talks. He was the mystery man. Though his name was never made public, we’ve learned he may have played a significant role in the mediation.
Kemp said in a recent interview that he wants to put the past behind him and focus on his music career in Atlanta. He’s been taking part in countless $100 an hour sessions in Atlanta recording studios for the past two months and he’s currently recording songs written from the perspective of an angry lover.
