The news isn't too surprising considering the scandalous fallout surround the Boston Celtics coach's suspension.

In September, it was announced that the NBA team suspended Udoka for a "violation of team policies."

It was later reported that the 45-year-old's suspension stemmed from "an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff."

Udoka issued a public apology after the explosive reports circulated around the internet.

"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. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment," the statement read.

Long, who had been engaged to Udoka since 2015, attempted to maintain a low-profile after the cheating allegations dropped. However, the The Best Man star recently called out the NBA for it's perceived lack of care for her and her sons.

"If you're in the business of protecting women – I'm sorry, no one from the Celtics organization has even called to see if I'm OK, to see if my children are OK. It's very disappointing," she expressed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Here's to wishing Long the best after all the drama.
