The Eddie Long drama never seems to end. The notorious Bishop’s wife, Vanessa had decided once again to seek divorce. Check out the details…
The reconciliation of Vanessa and Eddie Long didn’t make it through the day, as the wife of the charismatic New Birth Missionary Baptist pastor has decided against withdrawing her petition for divorce filed late Thursday afternoon.
“Mrs. Long continues to hope that this matter may be resolved expeditiously, harmoniously and fairly; however, she has determined that dismissal of her divorce petition is not appropriate at this time,” Kilpatrick Townsend partner Michael W. Tyler said in a prepared statement.
“To avoid any undue confusion, Mrs. Long’s future statements, if any, will be issued through her attorneys,” he said. A spokesman for Kilpatrick Townsend refused further comment.
Vanessa Long released three statements to the media Friday. First she announced she was seeking to end her 21-year-marriage following “a great deal of deliberation and prayer.”
Then, around lunchtime, in a statement sent through New Birth’s public relations firm, Vanessa Long said, upon further “prayerful reflection,” she was withdrawing the divorce petition.
“I love my husband,” she said in the second press release. “I believe in him and admire his strength and courage.”
