The Beullah 'Lisa' Wilkes depicter on the NBC sitcom 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' has been granted sole custody of 12-year-old son Kez, whom she shares with the basketball coach.

AceShowbiz - Nia Long has won a custody battle against her ex Ime Udoka. The "Missing" star, who split from the professional basketball coach more than a year ago, has been granted sole custody of their son, Kez.

The 53-year-old will have a 95 timeshare with Kez, 12, while her former partner will have the other 5. According to court documents, the head coach for the Houston Rockets will be given reasonable visitation rights as his and the actress' schedules permit.

"If the parties are unable to agree upon Udoka's visitation with Kez, they shall consult and work together with Kez's treating therapist to encourage the visits with Udoka, and the therapist will inform the parties of what is best for Kez," the docs read. "The parties shall work together to facilitate Udoka's visitation."

Still, Nia will need to share joint legal custody with Ime. Thus, the exes "shall share the right and responsibility to make decisions relating to Kez's health, education, and welfare."

"Long and Udoka shall confer with each other before making such decisions and confirm their decisions in writing," the docs state. "If the parties are unable to agree, then Long shall have the authority to make the decision for Kez provided Long has given Udoka 24 hours' advance written notice that she is making the decision."

Nia will also get $32,500 monthly child support. Although the amount is slightly about half as much as the court initially said she might be entitled to, Nia and Ime agreed upon it.

Ime's affair was exposed to the public back in September 2022. The pair, who had been together since 2010, called off their engagement after he was reported to have had an "inappropriate relationship" with a female staffer.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nia blasted the Boston Celtics for making public Ime's infidelity. "I think the most heartbreaking thing about all of this was seeing my son's face when the Boston Celtics organization decided to make a very private situation public," she said. "No one from the Celtics organization has even called to see if I'm OK, to see if my children are OK. It's very disappointing."
