After releasing two conflicting statements in one day, Vanessa Long has once again decided to divorce her husband, Bishop Eddie Long.
Her lawyers released the following statement Friday evening:
“Consistent with her original statement made this morning, 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.”
Bishop Eddie Long released his own statement on New Birth Missionary Baptist Church’s Facebook page saying:
“God has blessed us with a wonderful family. Vanessa is, and has always been, a loving, dedicated and committed wife and Mother. My love for her is deep and unwavering. It remains our sincere desire to continue working together in seeking God’s Will in these circumstances. We will do so as privately as possible and with a spirit of love and sensitivity to our family. We ask that you be in prayer for our family and that we be allowed to privately pursue this important path without need, or request from the media, for further comment.”
The AJC reports that in the divorce filing, Vanessa Long said her 21-year marriage to the megachurch pastor was “irretrievably broken” and there was “no hope of reconciliation.” The couple has been in a “state of separation,” according to the petition.
