ESPN reported that Udoka had a “role in an intimate relationship with a female member of the franchise’s staff” just before the Celtics statement went online.
Later, the claims were verified.
Udoka later provided a comment regarding the alleged relationship to ESPN’s Malika Andrews. I’m sorry for disappointing our team, fans, the whole Celtics organization, and my family, the player added. I respect the team’s decision and apologize for placing them in this precarious position.
He closed his statement by saying, “I will have no further remark out of respect for everyone concerned.”
Since 2021, Udoka has served as the team’s head coach.
YG has already discussed his label problems. The 32-year-old revealed in an insightful interview with No Jumper last year how his last record deal was “fucked up for 10 years straight.”
He remarked, “Like, my record deal was fucked up for ten years straight when my sh*t started moving. My stuff was terrible. Since the release of my last record back, I have never owned any of the music I have produced. I simply left that because I don’t own anything.
“I ain’t making no money with none of my songs, I gotta do other shit,” he continued. As a result, I became a small, or whichever you want to refer to me, business n-gga with a name.
YG is not the first artist to slam Def Jam, though. Logic has voiced his displeasure with the label throughout his nearly ten-year stay, complaining in an Instagram video in April that it had been “fucking up my releases.”
In 2010, at the age of 19, YG became Def Jam’s first West Coast signing in fifteen years. On the label, he has put out five studio albums, among them My Krazy Life, Stay Dangerous, and My Life 4Hunnid.
The 4Hunnid head continued the campaign for I Got Issues on Friday (September 23) with the release of a new song and video dubbed “Maniac,” despite his problems with Def Jam. It comes after the earlier tracks “Toxic” and “Scared Money,” both of which feature J. Cole and Moneybagg Yo.
Regarding the significance of the album’s title, YG said to Power 106 Los Angeles in February that it will demonstrate his personal development.
“I’m just growing, that’s all. Like, where I’m at in life and in my thoughts,” he remarked. “I believe the entire COVID epidemic thing, I hated it, but I also look at it like, this shit kind of helped me get to where I’m at with myself, mentally,” the speaker said.
