Nia Long and Ime Udoka have called it quits less than three months after news broke of the NBA coach’s alleged affair.
Long, 51, and Udoka, 45 — who started dating in 2009 — are “no longer together but remain fully committed to co-parenting their son [Kez],” the actress’s rep confirmed to People.
“The situation is unfortunate and painful, but Nia is focusing on her children and rebuilding her life,” a source told the outlet.
A rep did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
The pair’s split comes after the Boston Celtics announced in September that Udoka would be suspended after allegedly cheating on his fiancée with a female staffer.
The organization announced that Udoka had violated “team policies” during a press conference, which blindsided the “Boyz n the Hood” star.
Long has since spoken out about the “devastating” impact the alleged affair has had on their 11-year-old son.
“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,” the actress told The Hollywood Reporter last week.
“He still has moments where it’s not easy for him,” she continued, adding that “no one” from the organization even called to check in on their family.
Although the actress felt as if her “heart had jumped out of [her] body” after learning about Udoka’s affair, she relied on her closest friends and family to guide her through the tough time.
Following news of his affair, Udoka — who was suspended from the Celtics for one year — apologized to the organization and his family in a statement shared to Twitter.
“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down,” Udoka said. “I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment.”
The former couple, who welcomed their son in 2011, got engaged in 2015.
