A girl wants to correct the record.
After being spotted holding hands with former B2K member Omarion while walking the red carpet at the You People Los Angeles premiere on January 17, Nia Long made her relationship status very apparent.
Omarion shared a video of the couple during the event on Twitter. He also added a smiley face emoji with a blush. His message was shared on Instagram by the user @TheShadeRoom, who added the description, “The smile on #Omarion’s face says it all!”
Then, Nia entered the chat. “Everybody simmer down…,” she wrote under the group’s Jan. 20 Instagram Post. “I’m single AF.”
The change in her relationship status follows the breakup of her 13-year relationship with Ime Udoka, which a representative for Nia confirmed to E! News in December. Kez, 11, is the kid of the ex-couple. Massai, Nia’s son from a previous relationship, is 22.
Two months before news of their split broke, the Boston Celtics announced on Sept. 22 that Ime was suspended from his role as head coach for “violations of team policies.” Earlier that same day, ESPN reported, citing multiple sources, that he allegedly had “an intimate relationship with a female member of the franchise’s staff.”

Ime has not responded to the accusations in the media. Yet, he provided the following statement to ESPN reporter Malika Andrews at the time of his suspension over the team’s decision: “I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down. I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision.”
Nia has also expressed her displeasure with the Celtic’s choice to make the specifics of his suspension public.
“It feels like no one thought of me, of my children,” Nia told Entertainment Tonight Dec. 7. “I think the Celtics were irresponsible, and it was hurtful.”
