Kemp was identified as the fifth accuser in the Eddie Long sex scandal that involved four young men suing the world-known preacher and founder of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church for sexual coercion. In 2004, Long led a march of thousands through the streets of Atlanta protesting, among other issues, gay marriage.
Long reached a settlement with his accusers in May 2011 that included a confidentiality agreement.
Kemp is not the only accuser to continue speaking about the case. In August 2011, accusers Jamal Parris and Spencer LeGrande gave in-depth interviews that were published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV.
