Atlanta-based megachurch pastor Eddie Long, accused of coercing young men into sexual relationships, canceled a news conference and a radio show interview Thursday after a third suit was filed against him, his spokesman said.

Art Franklin told CNN on Wednesday the suits, which allege Long coerced young male church members into sex, are “a case of retaliation and a shakedown for money by men with some serious credibility issues.”
