Breaking News: Eddie Long’s 5th Accuser Revealed

Investigative reporter Dale Russell of Atlanta’s Fox 5 I-Team revealed on the July 27 6 p.m. broadcast that Bishop Eddie Long had a fifth accuser in his sexual misconduct case. The accuser never filed a lawsuit and his name was kept a secret, but the settlement negotiations revealed the individual as Centino Kemp. Russell has been tracking this story for several months and met Kemp at a small Atlanta recording studio.

Kemp, sometimes known as Centinio, is almost 22 years old and was raised in the Bahamas. According to Russell’s report, Kemp met Long years ago while a student at a Florida college. Now a recording artist in Atlanta, Kemp is recording an album titled No Regrets. Some of the songs are written from the perspective of a jilted, angry lover. Kemp was happy to speak to Russell about his music, but not his relationship with Long. Kemp still has Eddie Long’s name tattooed on his inner wrist with the words “Always a Lesson, Never a Mistake.”

Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church recently settled a sexual misconduct scandal involving four young men, each accusing Long of having sexual contact with them. The case was settled in May for an undisclosed amount of money. Long allegedly lavished the young men with trips, gifts and money. Long denied the allegations in court papers. Once settled, Long issued a statement saying that it was time to move on.

Although his name was never made public, Kemp played a significant role in the mediation process.

    Another “Uncertain” trying to make it big and make money off of a scandal. I should have jumped in while the getting was good and got a piece of the pie. People are getting rich by any means necessary and “They will Reap what they Sow.”

    Eddie Long is probably gay or bi-sexual. If it was 1 or maybe even 2 accusers, I would give his defense more credit, but 5 accusers is just too many to defend especially when they all have similar stories and accusations. You can’t deny your actions when they come out of the closet into the public!

    No matter how obscure the situation may be there is always truth to it and whatever was done behind closed doors with those young men was wrong.  If it was on the up and up as Eddie Long portrays it to be there would be no court in that land that  could prove his innocence,  he would have maintained it throughout all the litigation hearings and proceedings without having to throw  money at the situation with hope that it would just dissolved. Hell that just made it worse (it makes him look guilty of something)…. now everybody is looking for their piece of the pie.  IJS

    Great journalism.  Investigative reporter Dale Russell went searching a man that wanted to remain anonymous.  The months spent searching for this clown could have been spent searching for missing children in his community.  Didn’t realize it was difficult to find a gay man in Atlanta.

      DatsLife, unfortunately searching for missing children – esp. Black children — doesn’t have the ratings lure as finding this gentleman does. Thanks for your readership, Annsonita Robinson
