De'Londa Brice is a fictional character on HBO drama The Wire, portrayed by Sandi McCree.
De'Londa is the mother of Namond Brice. Namond’s father Wee-Bay Brice is incarcerated for multiple homicides. Although she has adopted Wee-Bey's last name, they are not married. De'Londa raises her son using funds from the criminal organization Wee-Bey worked for and she holds Wee-Bey in high regard as a male role model for Namond. She actively encourages him to get involved in Baltimore's drug trade and uses Wee-Bey's contacts to get him work.
De'Londa owns her own home and spends a relatively large amount on clothes and jewelry compared to her neighbors. She ensures that Namond always wears expensive clothes even when he has misbehaved. De'Londa enjoys regular shopping trips to New York City and visits to Atantic City while leaving Namond to care for himself. It is suggested that she has spent more than her share of the Barksdale money and endangered the longterm financial well-being of her family.
When Briana Barksdale cuts De'Londa off from the Barksdale empire, De'Londa is left fuming. She decides the only way to support her way of life is to have her son work as a crew chief. She bosses one-time Barksdale lieutenant Bodie Broadus into giving Namond a package of his own and instructs him on how best to sell it, but will not let him drop out of school for his new work. After a confrontation with her son resulting in his running away, Wee-Bey, on the advice of Howard Colvin, insists that she let the boy go to follow his own path. De'Londa relents and the season's final episode concludes with Namond having been unofficially adopted by the Colvin family.
De'Londa and Wee-Bay both have the same last name but dont mean they are married
