Carmelo Anthony, La La Anthony Split
Carmelo Anthony and wife La La Anthony have split, Gossip Cop has learned. The actress reportedly moved out of the home she shares with the NBA star last week and is staying at an apartment in New York City.
The couple’s separation comes after nearly seven years of marriage and more than a decade together. La La, a former MTV VJ, became engaged to the New York Knicks star on Christmas Day in 2004. They got married in July 2010 at Cipriani’s in New York City, a ceremony that aired on VH1 as part of the couple’s reality series, “La La’s Full Court Wedding.” Among the many famous guests at their nuptials was Kim Kardashian. A follow-up series chronicling the couple’s marriage, titled “La La’s Full Court Life,” aired from 2011-2014.
Anthony and La La share a 10-year-old son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, who was born in March 2007 and served as the ring bearer at their wedding. According to TMZ, the couple’s separation has been amicable and they even attended their son’s basketball game together this past weekend. The website further says that Anthony’s NBA career took a toll on their marriage as there’s been recent talks of him being traded by the Knicks.
Earlier this week, Knicks coach Phil Jackson confirmed the team was exploring trade options, telling reporters that Anthony “would be better off somewhere else.” La La, however, reportedly plans on staying with their son in New York.
