Nia Long is trending on Black Twitter after it was revealed that her longtime fiancé, Ime Udoka, engaged in an “improper” relationship with a young staffer.
The Boston Celtics head coach is facing a lengthy suspension that could keep him out for the entire 2022-23 NBA season.
According to ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski, Udoka engaged in an “improper intimate and consensual relationship” with a young female employee within the organization, that violated the organization’s code of conduct.
Ime and Nia have dated since 2010 and they share a 10-year-old son, Kez Udoka.
They got engaged in 2015 but never made it to the alter.
Black men on Twitter roasted Ime for cheating on Nia. Many called for the Celtics to fire him for cheating on the Love Jones actress.

Ime Udoka shouldn’t be suspended for having a consensual relationship with a female staffer. He should fired for cheating on Nia Long

Nia posted a cryptic video on her Instagram Story on Sept. 9 – the same day Ime was accused of having a “consensual” relationship with a female staff member, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
In the video, a narrator says:
“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. Them people is not the type of people that you wanna play with.”
Internet sleuths circulated a photo of a pretty young female staffer who may be a former WNBA player.
Your auntie won’t post the young lady’s photo to protect her privacy.
