ATLANTA, Ga. – The FOX 5 I-Team has uncovered that there was a fifth accuser in the Bishop Eddie Long sexual misconduct case. He never filed a lawsuit and his name was kept a secret, but Centino Kemp’s allegations of sexual misconduct against Bishop Long brought him front and center into the recent settlementnegotiations.
Senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell has crisscrossed the city of Atlanta searching for the mysterious fifth young man. Centino Kemp
, sometimes called Centinio
, is young– barely 22. We’re told he met Bishop Long
years ago. He has Long’s name tattooed on his wrist, and he is currently recording songs written from the perspective of an angry lover.For nearly two months, Russell searched all over
Atlanta for Centino Kemp
, and finally caught up with him leaving this small recording studio. He was happy to talk about his music. But he didn’t want to talk about anything else.The well-known sex scandal involving Bishop Eddie 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.Now, the I-Team has learned that after the initial lawsuits were filed
, Centino Kemp
came forward with similar allegations of sexual misconduct against Bishop Long
. Our sources say he became involved in the settlement talks. He was the mystery man. Though his name was never made public, the I-Team has learned he may have played a significant role in the mediation.
Our source says Kemp has been taking part in countless $100 an hour sessions in Atlanta recording studios for the past two months.Some are profanity-laced, sexually-charged stories of angry, jilted lovers, like Kemp’s song titled Pornography.According to various social media posts, Centino Kemp is 22 years old, single, tattooed, and always sporting different looks. He tweets openly of gay rights, and dreams of taking the recording world by storm.One source says Centino Kemp, who was raised in the Bahamas, met Bishop Eddie 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 Eddie Long’s name on his wrist, followed by the words, “Never a Mistake, Always a Lesson.”Sources say Kemp joined in the settlement talks after he heard about the other young men’s lawsuits and though he never sued, he became a part of the final settlement.One lawyer familiar with the case confirmed Kemp was involved and was “different from the other young men,” “one piece of the puzzle that never fit,” and he made the case “more difficult.”Bishop Eddie Long had no comment about Centino Kemp. And Centino Kemp had nothing to say about the bishop. After walking away from our question, he later sprinted to an awaiting stretch limousine. The secret accuser in the Bishop Long sex scandal, drove off, still a mystery, still dreaming of stardom.
We want you to answer...
After viewing last night's episode of VH1's Basketbal Wives, do you feel Meeka's lawsuit has validity?
What are your thoughts, we want to know...
Basketball Wives’ Meeka Claxton Sues Tami Roman For Assault!
22 Jul 2011
This all stems from a nightclub fight that took place in Rome, Italy last month. And yes this is the same fight that will be shown on the upcoming episode of the VH1 show. According to reports, things came to ahead between both ladies when Tami decided to punch Meeka in the face leading to a fist fight.In the lawsuit filed yesterday in New York, Meeka alleges Tami “assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved” her causing serious injury.Meeka is seeking unspecified damages stating the incident cost her a day of filming — and put her through an emotional and physical hell. Tami has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
While we confess that we don't know a great deal about Mrs.Claxton, we do know Tami on more of a personal level. Tami gave us an exclusive interview for our online magazine (Cruz Inc, The Magazine) June 2010 issue.
She was very candid and shared the good and the bad about herself. Tami gets a lot of attention because she is out-spoken and doesn't like to be played. Many people often misunderstand Tami, generally those people don't know anything about her.
Those who know her, understand her passion and drive. She is very business savvy and a perfectionist. She is very kind-hearted, which her detractors may take for weakness. Like any of us, she has her limits as to what you can do or say to harm her family, reputation or career.
Do we endorse any type of violence...honestly, only if it comes to protecting ones self. Knowing Tami, I would venture to say Tami was defending herself or Meeka became an obvious threat.
Before you judge Tami, allow her time to respond to this suit via the proper channels, which would be through her attorney and through the courts. Keep her in your prayers and get to know the person before hating the person.
This is from an email that is circulating around the country:
Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only 30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500..
If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer's contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working (me) you'd have $892,919.98.
If you took out only 3% per year, you receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years, and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had.
Entitlement my rear, we paid cash for our social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make our benefits some kind of charity or handout!!
Congressional benifits, aka. free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call our retirement entitlements!!!!!!.....scroll down..............
WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!
April 12, 2011 Calif. Daily Bulletin paper, ran two articles on the front page side by side :
> 1- Calif 's 20 Billion Dollar Budget Deficit
> 2- The Calif Supreme Court ruling that ILLEGALS can attend college and get benefits. Why don't they just deport them when they arrive to register?
> 3- Last year they ran an article on the yearly costs to Calif Taxpayers from Illegals using Hospital Emergency Rooms for their general health care. At just one hospital the cost to tax payers totaled over 25 million a year.
Someone please tell me what's wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey . And now Pakistan--home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when its time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.
Sad isn't it?
Well, if you didn't miss her, you are probably not alone. In fact you can say that Royce is a "Non-factor". With the out-dated babydoll clothes she wears she looks like a Goodwill reject. Following behind the other cast for validation.
Somebody tell me again why she is even on Basketball Wives. Oh, she slept with a NBA player and had a baby. What a great thing to be noted for and to rise to recognition for.
Well, if anyone else can name 3 reasons why Royce should remain on BBW; please submit them, because I can't think of one!
It was no surprise to this observer that Flocka wants to leave the industry. It is hard to pretend or be fake when you are real person and use to real people.
It's all about grand-standing and pretentious ass people, who seldom care about the people who help them to acquire their fame and riches. The fan, the movie goers and watchers, the concert goer, etc...
These arrogant people make millions and we feed their egos; while they could care less. Those pompous pirates, whine and bitch if their sparkling waters aren't the correct temperature...what the hell were you drinking before the fame...tab water...damn it!!
Have we all lost our damn minds, people get a few thousand followers on Twitter and become apart of certain so-called elite groups and they have an air that their shit don't stink...news flash, it does!
In the streets if you don't like someone, you don't like them; both parties know what time it is. You sincerely like someone, you have their backs. In the industry, you only as good a your last favor for someone or if you can assist them to get to the top. After that you are "a non-factor".
There more I can say and will say later, but for now, Flocka...I salute your non-talking ass...real talk; at least you are trying to keep it real...so homie go back to the streets...smoke some more weed, drink a forty, have 100 babies and be with your real niggas...dueces!
Next time, I will go in on those parents in the industry who want to be managers; but are stumbling-blocks for their child(ren) success.
