Speaking with Yahoo! over the weekend, Nia Long held back tears thinking about the road to 2023.

“I’ve had some pretty devastating moments in my life over the last couple of months,” Long said. “And I’ve had to just say, ‘It’s alright. You’ll pick yourself back up and’ — oh my god. I’m about to cry. ‘You’ll pick yourself back up and keep moving,’”


At the moment, Long is enjoying the single life. Fans are attempting to put her in a new situation, however. Long was posing on the red carpet for her latest film, You People, with Omarion, and the two flashed bright smiles, leading The Shade Room to wonder about their relationship status.

Stomping out the fire of “The smile on Omarion’s face says it all!”, Long entered the comments and set the record straight. “Everybody simmer down… I’m single AF.”
