New Images Of Bishop Eddie Long Raise Concerns

Eddie Long

As 2016 comes to a close, we’ve had to keep a careful eye out for the health of celebrities and known figures in the media. Bishop Eddie Long has been the subject of intense speculation as of late since the controversial pastor’s appearance has changed drastically from the start of the year.

After facing harsh criticism from social media and Sherri Shepherd’s accusation of Long having “the look” of a person with HIV during a segment on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, the bishop felt led to explain his new physical image back in September:

“I have gone total raw vegetable, somewhat vegan,” Long said in a video recorded in August. “I’m on the medicine that God gave you to feed your immune system to build you up.”

Now, more images of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pastor have spread across the Interwebs and people are talking. In photos and video clips from recent church services, Long is seen as much smaller and in need of assistance to walk across the pulpit of the megachurch.

Long, who has not issued a statement, has been more visible on social media, regardless of his health situation. Watch the video below to see the pastor’s recent physical appearance:
