People have long been speculating on the status of Nia Long and her cheating fiance Ime Udoka. The pair have been keeping a low profile since he was booted from the Boston Celtics following an inappropriate relationship with a co-worker. Long has to give subtle hints on social media about her moving forward but has yet to confirm if she would be sticking beside her man or moving on. Yesterday she posted and deleted photos of a new place with a telling message.
Following the reveal that Ime had been sleeping with a woman on his staff in Boston, the team suspended him for the year. Nia, who had moved to Boston to be closer to him with their kids, but was spotted pretty quickly back in Los Angeles with her son and without her ring. When questioned by TMZ if she had plans to sort things out, Long seemed more eager to get to her car but seemed to scoff a bit at the question.
She’s thrown herself back into work, promoting upcoming projects, including The Best Man’s upcoming television series on Peacock. “VWe’re not just friends, we’re family ❤️ Stream #TheBestManFinalChapters December 22 on @peacocktv,” she shared in one post. Nia was clearly in the celebrating mood because yesterday she posted a picture of an empty kitchen with the caption, “thankful for the gift of new places and spaces.”
She quickly deleted the post, but blogs had enough time to capture screenshots, and it seemed like she was getting mostly love from her supporters, including Yung Miami, Niecy Nash, Keyshia Cole, and more. One person commented, “Love this so much for Nia! She’s gonna get exactly what she wants, like, frfr, I feel that energy!” While another said, “This don’t mean she single this could be they new place together 🤷🏾♀️.” It is unclear if Long and Ime are still together or not. He was speculated to be taking the head coach position with the Brooklyn Nets, but that has since been overshadowed by Kyrie Irving’s drama.

Some close friends, including Marlon Wayans and Nia’s baby father, Massai Z. Dorsey, speculated that she would be staying, but it’s still unclear.
