Bishop Eddie Long Update: Fox 5's I-Team Uncovers 5th Accuser In Sex Scandal

Bishop Eddie Long Had Fifth Accuser in Sexual Misconduct Lawsuit: MyFoxATLANTA.com

After a seven week long investigation, Fox 5 Atlanta’s I-Team has uncovered additional details surrounding Bishop Eddie Long’s Sex Scandal case.  

Prior to reaching an undisclosed settlement agreement with his four accusers; it would seem that Eddie Long’s sexual abuse case would soon be “swept under the rug,” especially after publically addressing his New Birth congregation—in September 2010—of the falsities behind the accusations from these four young men:

 “I am not the man that has been portrayed on television," he said. "I've been accused, I'm under attack… I want you to know, as I said earlier, that I am not a perfect man. But this thing, I'm going to fight. I feel like David against Goliath, but I've got five rocks and I haven't thrown one yet.”

However, these high expectations for a quiet settlement proved invalid, as a fifth unidentified man—who some would call a “scorned lover”—stepped forward to surprisingly enough NOT file a lawsuit, but became heavily indulged in the settlement talks and was seen as the spotlight of negotiations for the mediation because he was “different from the other young men...one piece of the puzzle that never fit,” according to one of the lawyers working the case.

Fox 5’s Dale Russell reports that this “unidentified man” is a 22-year-old aspiring entertainer named Centino Kemp from Bahamas. It is unclear when exactly their relationship started, however Centino met Eddie years ago when he was college student in Florida and he visited the New Birth Church for the first time. Even more devastating, Centino even has Bishop’s name tattooed on his wrist. Underneath the name Eddie Long, the phrase reads, “Never a mistake, Always a lesson.”

Although the case was settled back in May, Fox 5 was able to receive reliable information about Centino’s whereabouts. As previously settled stated, Centino being an aspiring artist, it is no surprise Fox 5 was able to catch up with him while leaving a recording studio that is reported to cost $100 per hour. It seemed Centino was very comfortable and quite happy discussing his music, however when asked questions about Eddie Long, he clearly wanted no parts of that interview as he retreated to a nearby awaiting stretch limo.

It is speculated that because Centino is open about his sexual orientation and in support of the gay community, Centino was the key to the success of the case settlement. #Winning

A Fried Chicken And Doughnut Sandwich From KFC Is On The Way

KFC is throwing its hat into the chicken sandwich ring but adding something sweet to the mix.

According to reports, the fast-food chain is testing a fried chicken and doughnut sandwich in the Richmond, Va., area to see if customers are interested in their version of the sweet and salty craze.

Dubbed Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts, the new sandwich will be sold at seven locations in Richmond.

“Served hot and fresh, no matter the time of day, the donuts create a tasty flavor experience in every bite. Consumers will have a variety of options to satisfy their sweet and savory taste buds,” said a spokesperson.

The "Best Fried Chicken Sandwich" Olympics seemingly began when Popeyes announced they had a chicken sandwich of their own, in essence, encroaching on new territory, particularly Chick-Fil-A territory. A friendly social media battle ensued which helped to promote both sandwiches and forced long lines across the country. Some continued to pledge their loyalty to Chick-Fil-A, while others found a new meaning of life in the Popeyes chicken sandwich.

There's no word on how long the Kennedy Fried Chicken & Donut launch will last, but if given the opportunity to taste test it, would you?

Since having her first child, Kulture, last year with husband Offset, Cardi has been very candid about her experiences with motherhood and how it's changed her outlook on life. "I just wanna be home all the time," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I don't care about going out anymore. The things that I thought matter, it didn't really matter. I'm just so focused on my kid. I don't be sad for long because whenever I'm with my baby, it's like, 'Yeah, whatever. F**k everybody.'"

The "Press" rapper also shared how her parenting style is similar to her mother's way of raising her because she wants the best for her daughter. "My mom raised me on some like, 'I'm not your friend. I'm your mom,'" she continued. "So that's how I'm gonna be with my daughter.  She most likely gonna hate it, but she gonna appreciate it when she's older. I totally appreciate my mom."
