Bishop Eddie Long's divorce on hold

TOGETHER?: Bishop Eddie Long and his wife Vanessa

BISHOP EDDIE Long and his wife, Vanessa, have put their plans to start divorce proceedings on hold, according to the DeKalb County Online Judicial System.

Last year the embattled pastor's wife of 21 years filed for divorce days after Long settled a lawsuit made against him by five young men from his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, who had accused him of sexually abusing them.

The latest notes on the divorce record reportedly show that the case had been 'dismissed without prejudice' at the request of the couple.

The news comes after Vanessa made a statement via her attorney in December claiming she was 'determined' to split with her husband, despite speculation that she was having second thoughts.

The couple have yet to confirm their reconciliation.
