Everyone woman has their breaking point in life and with the multiple cases of molestation charged against her husband, Bishop Eddie Long, Elder Vanessa Long has reached the point of no return.

Throughout the extremely public proceedings, Vanessa Long managed to stay in quiet support of husband Eddie Long, who seemingly had a consistent slew of accusations charged against him for having relationships and coercing young boys into having sex with him through monetary gifts and items. Interestingly, Long has continued to vehemently deny all the accusations — even as the evidence still piles up against him.

But now with evidence being almost insurmountable, the alleged victims speaking out, and Eddie agreeing to a settlement, Vanessa Long has decided to part ways with her husband of 21 years. The couple have 3 children together.

Yesterday, she went to the Dekalb County Clerk’s office in the Atlanta area and filed the official paperwork. According to close friends, she is no longer attending New Birth and now attends Bishop Dale Bronner’s church, Word of Faith Family Worship cathedral.

In a statement to the press this morning, Vanessa says she wants this matter solved quickly and wants privacy:

“After a great deal of deliberation and prayer, I have decided to terminate my marriage to Bishop Eddie L. Long. Accordingly, I authorized my attorneys to file for divorce on December 1, 2011.

It is my sincere hope that this matter can be resolved expeditiously, harmoniously and fairly. I ask that you respect my privacy and that of my family, as my attorneys and I have agreed that we will not try this case in the media, and I do not intend to make any further statements concerning this matter.”

I have a feeling this is still the beginning of the drama in this family. Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted, stay tuned.
