Nia Long is taking a look at the people in her life as she deals with the fallout of cheating allegations against fiancé Ime Udoka.

The Fatal Affair actress, 51, returned to Instagram on Tuesday — nearly two weeks after her Udoka was suspended from his role as head coach of the Boston Celtics last month following an alleged affair with a female staff member.

“A tip for mental health,” she wrote on Instagram. “Learn to distinguish who deserves an explanation, who deserves one answer, and who deserves absolutely nothing.”

Following Udoka’s suspension, Long issued a statement exclusively to PEOPLE.

“The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and the community during this difficult time means so much to me,” Long said at the time. “I ask that my privacy be respected as I process the recent events. Above all, I am a mother and will continue to focus on my children.”

The Celtics suspended Udoka, who was named the NBA team’s head coach in June 2021, in an official statement on Twitter on Sept. 22.

“The Boston Celtics announced today that the team has suspended Head Coach Ime Udoka for the 2022-23 season for violations of team policies,” the statement read. “A decision about his future with the Celtics beyond this season will be made at a later date. The suspension takes effect immediately.”

The disciplinary action came after Udoka allegedly had a consensual intimate relationship with a woman on the team’s staff, which sources previously confirmed to PEOPLE.

Udoka broke his silence following news of the suspension.

“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down,” Udoka wrote in a statement, which was obtained and shared online by ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

“I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision,” the statement continues. “Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment.”
