They caught Nia Long coming out of Whole Foods in LA with her son.
The paparazzi could have left here alone especially because she was with her son, but they pushed ahead and asked her about Ime Udoka and her thoughts on him cheating on her with multiple Celtics female staffers.
TMZ has more about the interaction.
Nia Long doesn’t have much to say about her partner’s cheating scandal — but her body language and accessories speak volumes.
The actress was approached by a photog Saturday in L.A. — where she surfaced for the first time with her son, Kez — and the obvious was asked … how’s she feeling about the fact that Celtics HC Ime Udoka was found to have been in an extramarital affair with a staffer?
She stayed mostly silent, saying she didn’t want to comment — but when asked if she’s working things out with Ime, watch how she reacts … it’s telling. Since the news broke of her fiancé’s infidelity, she’s kept a low profile — and hasn’t been seen publicly until now.
Also of note … it doesn’t look like Nia’s wearing her engagement ring.
Meanwhile, we now know that Ime was allegedly making some crude remarks to the woman he was caught having an affair with before they started sleeping together.
he independent law firm probe into Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka found that he used crude language in his dialogue with a female subordinate prior to the start of an improper workplace relationship with the woman, an element that significantly factored into his one-year suspension, sources told ESPN.
Those investigative findings — which described verbiage on Udoka’s part that was deemed especially concerning coming from a workplace superior — contribute to what is likely a difficult pathway back to his reinstatement as Celtics coach in 2023, sources told ESPN.
The power dynamic associated with a superior’s improper relationship with a staff member was the primary finding and policy violation in the law firm report commissioned by the Celtics and completed early last week, sources said.
At a news conference last week, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck said the suspension — which extends through June 30, 2023 — was a product of multiple violations of team policies, and sources told ESPN the Celtics won’t stand in Udoka’s way should he have the chance to become a coaching candidate elsewhere. There are teams that have tried to gather a preliminary understanding of the full explanation for Udoka’s suspension in preparation for possibly evaluating him for future coaching employment, sources told ESPN.
