1st Time Seen Since Scandal

Nia Long doesn’t have much to say about her partner’s cheating scandal — but her body language and accessories speak volumes.
The actress was approached by a photog Saturday in L.A. — where she surfaced for the first time with her son, Kez — and the obvious was asked … how’s she feeling about the fact that Celtics HC Ime Udoka was found to have been in an extramarital affair with a staffer?
She stayed mostly silent, saying she didn’t want to comment — but when asked if she’s working things out with Ime, watch how she reacts … it’s telling. Since the news broke of her fiancé’s infidelity, she’s kept a low profile — and hasn’t been seen publicly until now.
Also of note … it doesn’t look like Nia’s wearing her engagement ring, although she doesn’t always rock it when out and about. Still, at a time like this — it seems important.
As we reported … sources tell us Nia felt blindsided by the whole thing, especially since he had moved her and their kid to Boston somewhat recently — even though the investigation had been taking place for months, with no one giving her a heads up until it hit the fan.
We’ve also been told that the cheating hits close to home — because the woman with whom Ime hooked up was actually known to Nia personally. She actually helped Nia move to Boston, and was involved in team-related travel too.
