Vanessa Long - Where is She Now?

April 25, 2024

Vanessa Long, a pastor and media personality, is best known for being the wife of late Bishop Eddie Long. The two were married for 23 years and shared three children together. She was also a board member of North Carolina Central University.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Long died from an aggressive form of cancer at the age of 63. Many of his family members and followers took to social media to pay their respects and offer condolences. One of those was Long's daughter, Taylor. In a heartfelt Instagram post, she remembered her father as an "amazing man of God" and urged the church to continue to pray for his family.

In recent years, Long has come under fire for sexual misconduct allegations against him. Four young men accused him of coercing them into sexual relationships while they were teenagers. Long denied all of the claims and eventually settled with each accuser for an undisclosed amount.

Long's wife, Vanessa, responded to the accusations by filing for divorce in December 2011. She later withdrew the petition, but it was clear that she would be standing by her husband through this difficult time.

Two years after the allegations, Long made a public appearance looking very thin. He addressed the scandal, but did not talk specifically about his health. Recently, however, a video of Vanessa Long speaking at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church has emerged, and she opened up about her decision to stand by her husband through the controversy.
