Nia Long And The Single Life

Long’s appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show comes over a week after she squashed rumors about her and Omarion being an item. 

A now-viral video captured at the You People premiere showed the actress and the “Touch” singer posing for photos together before briefly holding hands. 

Omarion later posted the clip on Twitter with a blushing emoji.

Long straightened out all the speculation after The Shade Room reposted the clip with the caption, “The smile on Omarion’s face says it all!”

The actress took to the comments and said, “Everybody simmer down… I’m single AF 😘.”

Long and Udoka officially ended their relationship in December 2022 after 13 years together. 

The former couple’s split followed Udoka’s alleged cheating scandal with a staffer for the Boston Celtics. 

Long seemingly confirmed Udoka’s infidelity when she called out the Boston Celtics for making “a very private situation public.”
