Confidentiality Agreement Be Damned! Bishop Eddie Long Accusers Threaten to 'Burn' Settlement Money, Write Tell-All Book
Weeks after Centino Kemp sashayed his way into the Bishop Eddie Long sexual misconduct conversation, joining four other young men who sued the popular Atlanta pastor, two of the original accusers are planning to write a tell-all book exposing the bishop's "secrets" and "weaknesses". What secrets? We all know he's a self-hating homosexual who preys on young boys and beats his wife. Young johnsons are his weakness. (Well, any kind of johnsons, really.) But we digress. They hope the book will help abuse victims find their voice and rise up against their abusers. "You ain't ready for the secrets," Jamal Parris, who this week was sentenced to a a year of probation after he was caught with weed and a gun in Miami, told WSB (video, below). "I don't care if this book sells one copy. But if it's just for me, this is what my life looked like, this is my voice for the first time.” He didn't go into details, but Spencer LeGrande added the book will feature "ten years of details, each person, it's gonna be a book full of 'wow's' and 'ahh's' and 'Oh my God's.'" Both men have previously spoken out about their unwanted sexual relationships with the bishop in more detail last fall. Jamal said Bishop Long sexted him sexually explicit photos and, as hard as he tried, he couldn't the smell of the pastor off him after they had sex. Jamal also said Bishop Long made them call him "daddy" and in this recent interview, he revealed a "JL" tattoo, which stands for "Jamal Long." Last fall, Spencer said Bishop Long drugged him then sexually abused him, then dumped him when he got too old. While we all want to learn the tea of what was going on in those hotel rooms around the and rentals homes across Atlanta and about those "wedding" ceremonies the bishop had with all of his young pieces, there's a major hurdle. Both Spencer and Jamal -- and the bishop's boyfriend of 6 years Centino, who spoke out earlier this month -- risk losing the undisclosed monetary rewards outlined in the May settlement if they publish this book because they all signed a non-disclosure agreement. They say the money is irrelevant and "feel like burning [it]." Spencer adds: “I’m going to tell the world – money does not buy happiness. When you sleep at night, the problems are still there. The money stuff, who cares about the number.” Oh, really? If money didn't mean a thing, why did you take his money in the first place? Just sayin'. Carry on.
Oh, lawd. These two are a media blitz; They spoke with WAGA, too.
