Since Udoka’s infidelity surfaced, netizens have wondered what the “Boyz n the Hood” actress’s next move would be. While fans await the actress’s response, Dorsey offered to fill the gaps.

Being a part of his child’s life meant having a relationship with the TV personality and her fiancé. However, it appeared Dorsey did not mind the scandal, as he had nothing but kind words for the disgraced coach.
It is important to note that the entertainer’s words are his opinions about Long’s current stance with her fiancé as the “Love Jones” star has not publicly shared her thoughts on the situation.
Nonetheless, the Black Reel Award winner’s ex-boyfriend claimed the couple might survive this storm. In the actor’s words: “We talk as a family, and it’s all about unconditional love, and that’s what she’s giving him. We’re sticking by him 100%.”

Before her ex-boyfriend’s interview, The Blast reported that the “Are We There Yet?” actress opened up about mental health in a cryptic Instagram post. The contents of the entertainer’s message read:
“A tip for mental health.. learn to distinguish who deserves an explanation, who deserves one answer, and who deserves absolutely nothing.”
