The latest breakup heard around the world is star athlete Carmelo Anthony and wife Lala Anthony have split. The couple share one 10-year-old son and has been almost everyone’s #relationshipgoal after six years of marriage but the rumor now is that there was always trouble in paradise.
Lala is most famous for her hosting skills and small movie roles, but became a household name when she started dating and eventually married New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony. Apparently, in addition to suffering loss after loss with his team, the 32-year-old ball player was having problems at home. It has been reportedly that Lala filed for a separation from her husband and was spotted in public without her usually sparkling diamond ring. The 37-year-old actress has moved out but has decided to stay on the east coast with the 10-year-old son they share in her attempts to keep things amicable according to E! Online.
It may be hard to keep things amicable if recent allegations are true. Carmelo Anthony allegedly has had a history of unfaithfulness. From telling women that he met on the road “Lala is married, I’m not,” to simply viewing his marriage as a business arrangement to keep up the image that they portrayed, the latest rumors may have caught the athlete red handed.
According to TMZ, the basketball player got one of his side chicks pregnant. You heard that right, while having multiple extramarital affairs Carmelo is allegedly going to be a new father very soon. The woman is said to be a dancer at a gentlemen’s club but after more digging, it turns out that’s not true. Carmelo Anthony’s new baby mother is actually a very educated woman with a degree in social work. It seems as if Lala found out about the baby and decided that it was the last straw to an already failing marriage.
This may not be the first time the two have separated. A source close to the couple said that they split up all the time, spend some time apart, and then reunite. However, there was never a possibility of a new baby on the way. Lala is a beautiful woman who has built quite the successful career on her own and the case may be that she doesn’t want to waste more of her time with someone that doesn’t value her. Carmelo on the other hand has recently been distracted by his basketball career and with a possible new baby on the way, it might be better for everyone involved to turn that separation into a divorce.
Do you think the couple should kiss and break up or call it quits? Let us know in the comments below!
