Nia Long and Ime Udoka are trending for the wrong reasons. The wild allegation that Ime cheated on Nia Long with a staff member isn’t going to sleep anytime soon because the internet is yet to find out who this woman is. Trust the internet to fish out this woman who Udoka cheated on Nia with.
Nia Long has subtly reacted to cheating rumors with a cryptic post on Instagram via TPS;
A cryptic video appeared Wednesday on Nia Long’s Instagram Story, which happened to be the same day Celtics coach Ime Udoka was accused of engaging in an “improper intimate and consensual relationship” with a female staff member, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
The video below features sunlight hitting the trees in a lush forest with an accompanying message that focuses on finding light after “darkness.”
“When you see people change their whole life and start walking down a path of enlightenment, hugging trees, connecting with nature, loving themselves, embracing positivity, letting that light shine, understand one thing: that light that you see, understand one thing about that light: they had to go into the darkness to get it. No shadow, no light, know shadow, know light,” the video said.
Long and Nia were first linked in 2010 and have a son together.
Long had been going viral as she cheered on Udoka during the Celtics’ playoff push in late May, which included an NBA Finals appearance against the Warriors.
Udoka is said to be in violation of the organization’s code of conduct over the apparent romance with an unnamed staffer.
He has since been suspended for the entire upcoming season.
We now have information that Long found out Ime was cheating when Woj was about to leak it.
Nia Long says she’s gonna need all the support she can get after getting blindsided by her fiance, Celtics Coach Ime Udoka … who we’ve learned kept her in the dark about his affair, even though the team busted him months ago.
Sources connected to the team and the couple tell TMZ … Nia had moved to Boston with Kez, her 10-year-old son with Ime, just 2 weeks ago, and the couple was house hunting.
The sad twist for Nia is that when she moved, Ime was already fully aware his affair with a married front office staffer was about to blow up. We’re told Ime knew way back in July the team was aware of the affair, and would be taking action.
Meanwhile, we’re told Nia only found out about it in the last few days … and only because Ime knew it was about to go public.
Nia tells TMZ … “The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and the community during this difficult time means so much to me. I ask that my privacy be respected as I process the recent events. Above all, I am a mother and will continue to focus on my children.”
