Bishop Eddie Long’s Accusers Penning Book

Two of the men accusing Bishop Eddie Long of sexual coercion are risking their settlement money and penning a tell-all book.

Jamal Parris and Spencer LeGrande agreed to speak with Channel 2 reporter Jodie Fleischer Wednesday, a bold move that could cost them  the reported $5.5 million they received after Long settled with them and two other young men.

In the investigative report they tell Fleischer that no amount of money could cover the emotional scars they suffered.

“It’s just not enough anymore. I thought I could cover the pain up. I thought I could move, start over and everything will go away. I was terribly wrong, “says Parris.

He adds,

“Before I used to look at you like you were the man. You ran everything, but now I got a voice. Like you got a voice.”

Now Parris and LeGrande are planning to release a book, a book the say will reveal truths kept secret from the public.

Speaking on the book, LeGrande promises that it will be shocking and give full details of ten years of abuse they felt at the hand of Long.

“Ten years of details, each person, it’s gonna be a book full of ‘wow’s’ and ‘ahh’s’ and ‘Oh my God’s.”

Parris and LeGrande contend that the four young men who sued Long are all heterosexual and never had intercourse with him.

In June a fifth man came forward, Centino Kemp ,who has the Bishop’s name tattooed on his arm with the words “Never a Mistake, Always a Lesson.”
