Actress Nia Long is upset that no one from the Boston Celtics organization reached out to see if she was OK after Ime Udoka‘s cheating scandal.
Udoka, 45, was suspended for one year as the Celtics head coach after he engaged in an intimate relationship with a married subordinate Celtics staffer.
Long is speaking out after moving back to Los Angeles with her and Udoka’s 11-year-old son named Kez Sunday Udoka.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Long, 52, said the Celtics didn’t reach out to her to see if she was OK after news of the scandal broke in September.
She was also upset that someone in the Celtics organization leaked the brewing scandal to the news media.
“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,” said Long.
She said the Celtics didn’t consider her feelings or her sons when they leaked the scandal to the press.
“If you’re in the business of protecting women — I’m sorry, no one from the Celtics organization has even called to see if I’m OK, to see if my children are OK.”
The Boston Celtics did not immediately respond to PEOPLE‘s request for comment.
Long also has a 22-year-old son named Massai Dorsey II from a previous relationship.
According to THR, Long took her minor son out of school when Udoka’s alleged affair became public.
“It was devastating, and it still is,” said Long, who revealed that her son “still has moments where it’s not easy for him”.
According to sources, Long dumped Udoka after he allegedly refused to cut ties with his side piece. Long and Udoka dated since 2010.
Udoka has not released a statement since he was suspended by the Celtics earlier this year. The Brooklyn Nets briefly considered him for the head coaching job.
