UPDATE: Carmelo Anthony Allegedly Got Dancer Pregnant Prior To Split From Wife La La
UPDATE: In the wake of the rumors of Carmelo Anthony allegedly cheating on his wife La La by knocking up a stripper, sources close to the pair have come out of the woodwork to shed light on the situation.
According to Page Six, one source close to Carmelo said,
“Melo’s tagline was ‘She’s married, I’m not’. That’s how he would justify it. His attitude is that all professional athletes do it, and many of them do. La La has put up with a lot. She knew it was going on, but I guess this time she’s had enough.
Multiple sources also told Page Six that Melo would often flirt or hook up with women while he was on the road with the Knicks.
New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and his wife La La are splitting up. TMZ has now learned one of the sources of conflict within what they termed as a marriage that has been rocky for awhile. According to TMZ, citing multiple sources, a woman claims that she is six and half months pregnant with Carmelo’s child, and La La is pissed.
The mystery woman is described as often working at a gentlemen’s club in New York, and has reportedly made it clear that she expects Carmelo’s assistance with medical costs “and other baby related costs.”
According to the New York Daily News, the couple has been fighting, and “the marriage has always been a rocky one, so this is no surprise.” These allegations by another woman would certainly be a cause for some fights. Anthony who has been dealing with rumors the New York Knicks were looking to trade him for months while he and the team struggled on the court. That can’t have been easy on the marriage.
Carmelo and La La got engaged in 2004 and were married on July 10, 2010. The ceremony was filmed for a VH1 reality series. The couple has a son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, who was born on March 7, 2007. There are no plans for either parent to move and they have no desire to uproot their 10-year-old son from his life in New York.
Sad news for Carmelo and La La who were one of the NBA’s most recognizable couples.
