Following the reports, the Celtics team started investigating and found out that the news about Udoka’s affair was true. As a result, citing the violation of the team’s policies, Ime was suspended for the 2022-23 season.
Amidst all these scandals, the identity of the female staff was kept secret but not for too long. In the following month of October, Kathleen’s name as Udoka’s secret lover came out in the media.
With regard to the allegation, the close source of the investigation team revealed,
the affair was consensual, short lived, and had ended by the time investigators got involved
At present, Lynch is out of contact with the media and is unreachable to anyone who wants to reach out to her.

Right after the Boston Celtics found Udoka guilty of violating the team’s policy, they decided to suspend him in September, just a week before the 2022-23 NBA season. After getting the suspension letter, Ime gave his statement which said,
“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down, “I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision.”
The head coach further added,
“Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment.”
On the other hand, Kathleen whose name is involved with the coach has not given any statement regarding this. Also, the team has not taken any disciplinary action against Kathleen yet.
How Is Lynch’s Condition After Her Name With Udoka Leaked?
After Lynch and Udoka’s extra-marital relationship surfaced in the media, Kathleen is reported to have been devastated and feeling guilty. Lynch’s close source told,
‘She’s been left devastated and afraid to show her face in public these days, wanting to avoid scrutiny given her name and photo have circulated widely.’
They further added,
‘She can’t even go to a grocery store,’
Seeing this, we can say that she is probably going through some mental breakdown in the midst of all these revelations or let’s say allegations. On the other hand, following the divulgence of their illegitimate relationship, Udoka broke up with his partner, Nia Long with whom he was in a relationship for 13 years. In case you don’t know, the head coach shares a son with her longtime partner Nia.

“I know the whole story front and back,’ It’s as basic as can get. All the acts were 100 percent consensual.”
Depending on this statement, it can be said that the Celtics staff Kathleen had an extra-marital affair with coach Udoka.
It Was Kathleen’s Husband Who Reportedly Revealed Her Affair With Udoka
In a shocking turn of events, it was Kathleen’s long-term spouse Taylor who reportedly snitched to Boston Celtics about what had been going on between his wife and Ime Udoka as per the headlines made by Black sports online. However, since the scandal surfaced in the online portal, Lynch’s husband hasn’t faced the media yet.
