Nia Long is is moving on.
According to reports, the Hollywood legend broke up with her fiancé, Ime Udoka, following the wild cheating scandal that resulted in him getting suspended from his position as Boston Celtics head coach.
The scandal happened three months ago. Ime allegedly had an affair with a team employee. U.S. Weekly reports the “mystery woman” involved in the is team service manager Kathleen Nimmo Lynch, a married mother of three.
People reports a source close to the ordeal says, “The situation is unfortunate and painful, but Nia is focusing on her children and rebuilding her life.” The source says the two are only committed to co-parenting their 11-year-old son right now. Last week, Nia told the Hollywood Reporter,
“I think the most heartbreaking thing about all of this was seeing my son’s face when the Boston Celtics organization decided to make a very private situation public.”
In September, the Celtics confirmed Ime’s suspension for “violating team policies.” Around the time, Ime spoke out and said, “I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down. I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision.”
Ime remains suspended from the Celtics. He was rumored to replace Brooklyn Nets Steve Nash, but the team decided to go with Jacque Vaughn.
Nia and Ime were together for 13 years.
