Marlon Wayans Basically Advises Nia Long to Stay with Ime Udoka | WATCH
Nia Long and Ime Udoka
*Nia Long’s ex, Massai Z. Dorsey, claims the actress is sticking by her cheating fiancé, Celtics coach Ime Udoka, after his reported affair with a team staffer.
“We talk as a family, and it’s all about unconditional love, and that’s what she’s giving him,” Dorsey told the DailyMail.
Udoka has been suspended for a year for having an inappropriate relationship with a female staff member on the team. Shams Charania of The Athletic initially tweeted that Udoka “had an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff.” Charania later reported that the relationship may have not been that consensual.
“Team leadership was led to believe by both parties that the relationship was consensual,” Charania wrote, as reported by The Ringer. “But sources said that the woman recently accused Udoka of making unwanted comments toward her—leading the team to launch a set of internal interviews.”
Ime Udoka – Nia Long
We reported previously that Udoka’s sexual relationship with this unnamed woman is considered a violation of the organization’s guidelines. After conducting several internal interviews, the team decided to suspend him for the 2022-23 season, per a statement released Thursday night, ESPN reported.
Udoka and his mistress were allegedly caught by the home security camera at the residence she shares with her husband.
“We’re sticking by him 100 percent,” said Dorsey. “Ime made a mistake. Every man needs another chance. Like the Bible says, the flesh is weak. He’s not a bad guy. Hopefully, he’s learned from this.”
According to TMZ, Long, Udoka’s longtime girlfriend/partner of 12 years, knew nothing about the affair and she didn’t find out until a few days before the world did! Sources close to Nia claim she and the couple’s 10-year-old son moved to Boston just 2 weeks ago to settle down. But, unbeknownst to her, Ime was prepared for the scandal to go public and he didn’t warn her about it.
Ime’s mistress reportedly organized Long’s travel for away games, and assisted her move to Boston, TMZ reports. Insiders tell the outlet that one of the woman’s duties as a staffer for the Celtics was planning travel for Udoka and Long.
Dorsey is the father of Long’s first son, 21-year-old Massai Dorsey II.
“All I could say is good things about Ime,” Dorsey said. “He’s a good man. All these years. I’m happy he’s in my son’s life.
“It’s easy to get to the top, but to stay at the top it takes a different type of person. Right now in this season, you have to be very sensitive with women, unfortunately, because they hold the cards right now.”
Ime Udoka & Nia Long
As the fallout from the Ime Udoka sex scandal continues to reverberate through the media world we have come to the point on the ride where individuals who have no business talking about the sex lives of others are allowed to talk about the sex lives of others simply because those others are famous or otherwise in the limelight
Recently, actor/comedian Marlon Wayans was asked by media personality Leah A. Henry for his take on the situation. Other than the fact that he has appeared on a few shows with Nia, why is this an appropriate line of questioning for Marlon? Well, because clicks and likes. That’s why.
Anyway, here’s how she posed the question.
“Nia Long’s fiancé, the NBA coach, is all up in the headlines,” said Henry. “One of the NBA players said, it’s not about who you’re cheating on for men. It’s more so that men get bored. I know that in your industry a lot of men have kinds of access to women all the time.”
Leah Henry added: “I just think, personally, working in entertainment, do most high profile men not have an understanding with the women they date?”
Marlon Wayans could’ve either taken the bait and talked about how Hollywood dudes get down, thus providing the reporter with the type of banter she wanted.
However, in light of the current “men ain’t sh*t” vibes that currently permeate the media, Marlon’s answer was a little unexpected
“When you are unbreakable then the media embarrassment and other women cannot break you because ‘I’ve found love, I’ve found my partnership, I’ve found my forever,’ the funnyman explained. “And, in order to find forever, you have to live in a way that bends but it don’t break.
“That’s your best friend, and I would say to Nia Long ‘Sis, if he’s all those things, then never mind all the media. I would say this to my daughter. I would say this to my sister, ‘Are you happy? Before this moment, were you happy? Right, so work on your relationship.”
Wayans wrapped it up with this: “As a father, I’m going, ‘He’s a good man. He provides, he’s there for you, you seem so happy when y’all are together. I like him, the family likes him. He has all these great qualities. You gonna break up with him because he slept with another woman? Yeah, she probably thinks the same thing you thinking. He’s a dope dude, why would you throw a dope dude away for her to have him?”
