READ MORE | Eddie Long ‘Wildchild’ lashes out at megadaddy imageThe latest accuser unearthed in the Bishop Eddie Long gay play sex scandal may run from a TV camera, but he left a trail of bread crumbs hinting at his ties to the case big enough for most anyone to find. You met the flamboyantly fabulous Centino “Wildchild” Kemp (photo) on Wednesday, thanks to an amusingly well-researched report from Fox 5’s Dale Russell. By the time we recovered from Kemp’s sprint to his awaiting limo – waiting for him outside the studio where he’s spending $100 an hour to record songs including “Pornography” – we caught up with Russell again for part two of his report. Yes, like a bad two-night fix of “American Idol,” you just can’t do with one night of Kemp when you can have two.
Our sources say after four young men filed sexual misconduct suits against Bishop Eddie Long, Centino Kemp came forward with more allegations of sexual misconduct. One source says Centino Kemp, who was raised in the Bahamas, met Bishop Eddie Long years ago during a visit to New Birth Missionary Baptist Church while he was a teenage student in a Florida college. The relationship meant enough for him to tattoo Eddie Long's name on his wrist, followed by the words, “Never a Mistake, Always a Lesson.” He didn't know the other young men and never filed suit, but our sources say he was part of the settlement in the Bishop Longcase.
In the second installment, Russell lays out how Kemp – apparently bound by the terms of the settlement from discussing it publicly – left hints all over his Facebook page. When the settlement was inked between him, at least four others and Long, he offered this on Facebook: “I may be bad but I got piad [sic] perfectly good for it.” You go, you Rihanna wannabe. Did that help Kemp score a ticket to see Rihanna work her lesbian niche in Atlanta last month? And then he sprinted off to a recording studio, his efforts and stretch limo ride underwritten by the still-undisclosed settlement with the megadaddy megachurch preacher.
