The Rockets’ Ime Udoka is «paying $32,500 a month in child support to Nia Long» for the former couple’s 12-year-old son, a judge ruled a year after his affair with a Celtics employee led to his departure from Boston.

Houston Rockets coach Ime Udoka will reportedly have to pay ex-partner Nia Long $32,500 a month in child support for their son Kez following their highly publicized split in 2022.

TMZ reports that the actress is getting the majority of the parenting time, although the two will have joint custody.

The website also reports that Udoka earns significantly more than the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress, citing court filings that claim he has a net monthly disposable income of $400,000 compared to her $20,000. Breaking up the time in custody favors Long because Udoka practices for much of the NBA season, which runs from fall to late spring.

The actress and Udoka were engaged until 2022, when it emerged that the now-former Boston Celtics Coach had an inappropriate relationship with a fellow employee, previously revealed by to be Team Services Manager Kathleen Nimmo Lynch.
