WTF is goin’ on?!?!

We reported earlier that Eddie Long’s wife would be divorcing him, however…

Hours after announcing she had filed for divorce from megachurch pastor Bishop Eddie Long, his wife, Vanessa, issued a statement Friday saying she had withdrawn her petition.

Vanessa Long had issued a statement early Friday morning saying that she had filed for divorce Thursday from Long, the pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

By early afternoon, she had a change of heart.

“Upon prayerful reflection, I have reconsidered and plan to withdraw my petition for divorce from my husband, Bishop Eddie L. Long,” she said in an emailed statement bearing the New Birth logo. “I love my husband. I believe in him and admire his strength and courage.”

She went on to blame “years of attacks in the media” for her initial decision to seek a divorce.

Hmmm, something just doesn’t smell right about this situation but if they like it, we love it.
