Christian Post – Carmelo Anthony and his wife of two years Lala are reportedly living apart following claims that the estranged couple is currently facing martial woes. Carmelo Anthony confronted Kevin Garnett following the New York Knicks’ game.
On Tuesday it was claimed that Anthony, 28, and Lala, 33, “have been living apart for at least two months,” due to alleged marital problems, a source reportedly told the New York Daily News. The news came to light after the New York Knicks small forward almost came to blows with Boston Celtics player Kevin Garnett over Lala during Monday’s game.
Garnett, 36, had allegedly told Anthony that Lala, who is also the mother of his son, “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,” which ultimately enraged the Knicks star. The players, who eventually had to be pulled apart on court, have since moved passed the incident, but critics like talk show host Wendy Williams are now questioning the status of Anthony and Lala’s marriage.
Lala, who was at Monday night’s game at Madison Square Garden, has reportedly been absent from the stadium for several weeks, which is evidently unusual considering the reality TV star attended almost every Knicks home game last season. At times, she also reportedly traveled with the Knicks on the road to remain close to her husband.
This is not the first time that the New York power couple has faced reports of marital woes. In 2011 it was claimed that Anthony was getting traded to the Knicks mainly because of an alleged love child. A source claims that upon discovering Anthony’s alleged secret baby, Lala gave her then-boyfriend an ultimatum of marriage or a messy breakup, according to Celebrity Blogger Terez Owens.
“People don’t even know the half of it. Just because her life is in the limelight, Lala thinks Carmelo wouldn’t do anything to ruin there image in the public eye … which is not the case,” the source reportedly said, adding, “I know for a FACT, he’s not faithful … Melo is a sweet talker.”
The estranged couple is yet to address reports that they are separated and headed for a divorce.
My first thought every time I hear LaLa’s name or see a photo of her is “who the fuck names their kid, LaLa?!” I know black parents come up with some original names, or try to, but LaLa is just plain lazy. Its like you wanted to be original, but you didn’t want to put in the work. Instead you just took the first sound you heard which happened to be a 6-year-old girl trying to sing- “la lala, lala, la.”
And now because of another million dollar athlete reportedly being unfaithful and going through marital woes, I have to hear her name and see her face over and over. Who doesn’t think Melo might have been sneaking around? You can give him all the ultimatums you want, LaLa, but if he’s going to cheat on you and have a baby with that chick its probably not the first or last time he’ll do it. I’m a believer that if you’re a high caliber athlete like Melo, you need to be living like Derek Jeter. No wife. No kids. A complete bachelor. Its the only way. You can’t be traveling with your team for 9 months of the year and expect there to be no temptations. That’s the ultimate long distance relationship. Never works. Never ever.
The marital woes make a lot of sense as to why Melo hunted KG down after their war of words on the court though. KG probably heard something about her- why he thinks she tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios, and relayed it to Melo on the court. Last thing a dude wants to hear when going through a breakup or rough patch is anything about their significant other. Shit never goes down well. Chicks are like gasoline to our fire. We just erupt and look to burn down everything around us. Chicks are evil, bro. Chicks are evil.
