It’s only been three days since, Bishop Eddie Long passed away, and now, former members of his church, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga., may release a tell-all book about the megachurch pastor soon.
According to a statement given to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Spencer LeGrande, Maurice Robinson and Anthony Flagg are about to drop a new book called Foursaken, which focuses on their encounters with Long.
You may recall that LeGrande and Jamal Parris broke their silence five years ago, claiming they were sexually abused by Long. All four men say the sexual advances started when they were 17, according to The Root.
All four men filed a lawsuit against Long, claiming he enticed them with cars, clothes, jewelry and electronics, and he bought all those items using money from the church’s accounts.
The suit was settled for an undisclosed amount. Despite Long’s strong stance against gay rights and same sex marriage, he fought rumors that he was gay and speculation he died of AIDS, not cancer.
TELL US: The library is open. Will you read the new tell-all book about Bishop Eddie Long?
