The split between Nia Long and Ime Udoka is getting nastier … the actress is now asking for primary custody of the couple’s child — after she claims the NBA head coach has been failing to support the kid.
Long made the allegation in a court filing in Los Angeles last week … while requesting a judge give her primary legal and physical custody of their 11-year-old son, Kez.
According to the docs, however, she did ask the judge to allow Udoka a reasonable opportunity to visit their kid to the extent “consistent with the child’s best interest.”
A ruling on the petition has not yet been handed down. Udoka has yet to respond.
As we reported, the couple broke up in late 2022 after 13 years together … following allegations that Udoka had an affair with a team staffer while he was the Boston Celtics’ coach.
Long had said at the time that the scandal was revealed that she was heartbroken … adding that it was all “devastating” to her and her family.
Udoka, meanwhile, has since landed a new gig after the affair led to his ouster from Boston — the 46-year-old just became the head coach of the Houston Rockets this offseason.
