Carmelo Anthony & La La Are Breaking Up—And It’s Already Getting Messy
Carmelo Anthony’s professional life is in turmoil right now. The New York Knicks aren’t very good, and if you believe some of the things Phil Jackson has said recently, the team is just about ready to part ways with its star player, assuming he agrees to waive his no-trade clause and get out of town. But Carmelo’s personal life might be in just as much turmoil, and it could lead to a very long summer for him and his family.
According to TMZ, Carmelo and his wife of seven years La La have decided to call it quits and end their marriage. They have reportedly been living under separate roofs, and while they are trying to do what’s in the best interest of their 10-year-old son, it doesn’t sound like there is any chance they are going to get back together in the near future. And for Carmelo, that’s not even the worst of it.
TMZ is also reporting that one of the reasons the couple is ending their relationship is because Carmelo cheated on La La recently and got another woman pregnant. That woman is apparently six months pregnant and wants Carmelo to play an active role in the child’s life, at least as far as finances are concerned. She has reportedly asked Carmelo to pay for all medical expenses and baby-related costs in the months leading up to the birth, and once the child is here, she could ask for a substantial amount of money in order to raise the child.
Surprisingly, it doesn’t seem like this wrinkle in the story was necessarily the final straw for La La. TMZ says Carmelo and La La’s marriage has been “rocky” for quite some time now, and the New York Post is even reporting that infidelity has been a major issue for the couple for years. But all of this is obviously not going to bode well for Carmelo or La La, and it has the potential to get even messier than it already is. The rumor mill surrounding this story is going to be every bit as insane as you would expect it to be.
Thus far, Carmelo and La La have been mostly silent with regards to the stories surrounding their breakup. But it’s going to be difficult for them to stay out of the public eye for long, especially since they live and work in the biggest city in the country. For their son’s sake, we hope the New York tabloids don’t go too crazy with reports about their issues. But if we had to guess, this is only the beginning and it’s only going to get worse for them as they move forward.
