Nia Long Breaks Her Silence On Ime Udoka Cheating Scandal

Long had reportedly moved to Boston two weeks ago.

Ime Udoka and Nia Long have been together for a long time. The two have a 10-year-old son together and have been engaged for seven years, but not married. When Udoka landed his role as head coach of the Celtics, Long was extremely supportive and could even be seen cheering him on during the NBA Finals.

Unfortunately, Long is going through a rough time when it comes to Udoka. The head coach was sidelined for dating a Celtics staffer. This relationship has resulted in a year-round suspension from the team and his future with the franchise remains uncertain.

According to TMZ, things have been made worse by the fact that Long and her son officially moved to Boston two weeks ago. They began house hunting with Udoka, who had not told Long of his transgressions. Speaking to TMZ, Long noted that in the days leading up to the report, Udoka became clear and she was devastated. Now she needs all the support she can get.

“The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and the community during this difficult time means so much to me,” Long said. “I ask that my privacy be respected as I deal with recent events. Most of all, I am a mother and will continue to focus on my children.”
