Nia Long speaks out after fiancé Ime Udoka suspended from Celtics coach for alleged affair


It’s been 24 difficult hours for Nia Long. After the actor learned that her fiancé, Ime Udoka, had been suspended as head coach of the Boston Celtics for the 2022-2023 season, she also found out why: Udoka is reportedly having an affair with a staffer. On Friday, Long was ready to speak out.

“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization and my family for disappointing,” Udoka told ESPN reporter Malika Andrews in a statement. “I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult position and I accept the team’s decision.”

Udoka, who led the Celtics to the NBA Finals during his first season as head coach, certainly has his supporters. But Long has amassed a legion of loyal fans for generations. From classic comedies like “Friday” to admirable charity work, she’s widely loved – including on Twitter.

The exuberance of Bowman’s tweet caused some ridicule, but the lawmaker wasn’t alone in showing support for the cherished actor:
