Looks like Eddie Long would rather drop some major bread than have to deal with the allegations of touching little kids.
The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church preacher was accused of having inappropriate sexual relationships with four male parishioners and had embarrassing cell phone pictures hit the mainstream. Instead of going to court to defend himself, Long decided to pay the hefty fee. The number came from an interview with an unnamed source conducted by Redding News Review.
The men are to get $2.8 million each and get paid $400,000 payments incrementally until the whole money is paid in 20 years.
This makes us wonder a million things: how the hell does Long have that kind of money?! And why is he willing to spend it on keeping these boys quiet? Guilty, much?
