Since last fall when allegations broke that Mr. Long engaged in sexual relationships with four young men, Mrs. Long has remained largely out of the public eye.

Now, it appears, the scandal has finally taken its toll.

“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,” Vanessa Long said in a statement.
