Bishop Eddie Long cannot escape the public eye. Yet another man has said that Long had sexual relations with him too.

Centino Kemp, 22, is claiming that Long had a sexual relationship with him while he was in college. The native of the Bahamas has Long’s name tattooed on his wrist and is currently recording songs written from the perspective of an angry lover, reports a local Atlanta station.

In May, Long settled a lawsuit with four other young men who accused the bishop of bribing  them with accept lavish gifts, trips, and money in exchange for sexual encounters with him. It was rumored that Long paid out $15 million in the settlement.

Sources say that Kemp was involved with the settlement talks also and that he made the case “more difficult.” His name was never made public during the allegations.

Next to Long’s full name tattooed on Kemp’s wrist are the words, “Never a Mistake, Always a Lesson.”

Bishop Eddie Long, who heads the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, hasn’t commented on the allegations.
