It is one thing to cheat.
Cheating with the woman helping your fiancee find a house to live in and a school to put your son in is another thing.
You can debate whether Udoka should have been suspended if the affair was consensual, but you can’t argue that he did Nia Long dirty.
She has officially broken off their engagement and relationship.
A rep for Long confirms to PEOPLE that the engaged couple are “no longer together but remain fully committed to co-parenting their son [Kez]”
Nia Long and Ime Udoka are going their separate ways.
A source exclusively confirms to PEOPLE that Long, 51, and Udoka, 45, have ended their 13-year-relationship after the former Boston Celtics head coach allegedly had an affair with a female subordinate within the team’s organization.
“The situation is unfortunate and painful, but Nia is focusing on her children and rebuilding her life,” the source says.
A rep for Long also confirms the couple are “no longer together but remain fully committed to co-parenting their son [Kez].”
The couple’s split comes after the Boston Celtics held a press conference in September to address Udoka’s suspension.
“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,” Long told The Hollywood Reporter last week.
Shortly before the Celtics statement went live, ESPN reported that Udoka had a “role in an intimate relationship with a female member of the franchise’s staff.” PEOPLE later confirmed the allegations.
BSO confirmed at least one of the affairs was with married Celtics staffer Katheleen Nimmo Lynch. No word if her husband, who discovered the affair, has filed for divorce or if she convinced him it was all the doing of Udoka.
Long and Udoka have been engaged since 2015.
