Bishop Eddie Long's Fifth Accuser Speaks Out: I Was In Love With Bishop Long, He Drove Me Mad
The Bishop Eddie Long story is one with no let up. Bombshell tonight! Weeks after he was revealed to be the Atlanta pastor's fifth -- and most fabulous -- accuser, Centino Kemp is spilling the tea on their relationship. In an interview with William G McCray III's Obnoxious radio show yesterday, Centino (and his new weave) revealed that he met Bishop Long aka "Dick Tracy" (the alias he used when meeting the boys at hotels) when he was a 16-year-old college student. He claims Bishop Long raped him. He admits that although he felt ashamed and victimized, the pastor's long history of brainwashing boys (and his congregation) made him go back and, surprisingly, they embarked on a six-year relationship that came to a head in 2010 when four other men accused Bishop Long of sexual misconduct. Centino says he was in love with the Bishop and he was under the impression they were exclusive -- aside from his wife, of course -- and didn't know about the four others who were dating his man. Centino said the news made him angry. "I was mad as hell. I wanted to mess [him] up," he told William. He he was so distraught, he tried to commit suicide and with Bishop Long's help, checked into an Atlanta psychiatric hospital where he finally found his voice and decided it was time to pick up the pieces and move on with his life -- but not before joining the lawsuit brought by the bishop's four other jumpoffs and settling out of court for an unspecified amount of cash. This sort of thing is a systematic problem among preachers in Atlanta. Sidebar: He says he never confronted the two-timing rapist about his lies.
