Please Say It Ain’t So: Could Lala and Carmelo Be Headed For Splitsville?

While her show may not be the most entertaining, I think it’s safe to say that Lala and Carmelo Anthony are one of reality television’s favorite couples, but recent rumors imply that they are the latest victims of the reality television curse. Since Monday night’s Knicks vs Celtics game where Carmelo fouled Kevin Garnett and offered him a few choice words after K.G. allegedly told him that Lala “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios”, all sorts of rumors regarding turbulence between Lala and Melo have surfaced. There is no real evidence to prove whether not these speculations are valid, only conflicting stories from anonymous sources.

According to Page Six, Lala and Carmelo are living separately right now; however sources provide varying reasons as to why. One source suggests that it is because she is busy filming her show, Lala’s Full Court Life.

“It is true they haven’t seen much of each other in the past few months,” says a friend of the couple. “She’s been away a lot filming her show, ‘La La’s Full Court Life,’ in London, New York and LA. They are not separated and are still together. She and Melo have a house in LA — so she’s always there when she’s doing auditions.”

Meanwhile, another source suggests there’s more to the story than that.

“They have been living separately for several months now. She’s been living in LA while Carmelo has been in New York.La La used to go out to the games and wanted to be seen . . . now she’s always off doing her own thing.”

 The Daily News, which referred to Lala as Carmelo’s “estranged wife” in a recent article, also suggested that the couple’s marriage is going through some sort of rough patch.

When asked by a Twitter-user about her feelings on Garnett’s comments to her husband, Lala chose not to address the drama and instead tweeted, “Living life. Counting blessings, not burdens.”

The most intriguing part is that it seems like these rumors came completely out of nowhere. Of course, marital problems don’t always equate to divorce. They could just be experiencing issues that they’re working through right now. Whatever it is, we hope they work it out.

What do you make of all of this? Do you think Lala and Carmelo are headed for divorce or is this just some ploy to get us all to tune into the upcoming season of Lala’s Full Court Life?

    I hope they aren’t headed for divorce, but having marital problems almost seems inevitable when both are traveling so much and doing their own things. You have to make time to be together, to turn off the cameras, and it seems like that isn’t happening. I hope they can work it out. I don’t watch Lala’s show but i like it when celebs (and anyone) actually stay together.

  • Reese

    I never really cared for them as a couple. Why did it take him so long to marry her? But I hope this isn’t true. But as the saying goes where there is smoke, there is fire.

  • lovely


  • Sharon

    Every marriage goes through some challenges. I don’t watch her show. I have to agree, with Guest, she do need to leave the reality show alone and focus on her marriage. Hopefully that what that is and hope they won’t ended up divorce. It would be sad if they do.

  • Britt

    Melo and Lala are my favorite couple. So just like people almost had a conniption when rumors of Will and Jada breaking up came out, this would break my heart. The timing of these rumors are suspect to me. If this KG-Melo situation never happened, I doubt these rumors would be out here. Also, Lala was at the the Knicks game Monday night.

  • Meyaka

    He is a cheater an a liar. I hope they can work it out.

    • inessa

      how do you know that?

      • Meyaka

        Well aside from one of his groupie putting his text messages and twitter Messages on blast on the Internet not too long ago, I was acquaintances with a video vixen who lives in New York and she showed me pictures and videos of her and different industry men most if them married. I guess she was trying to impress or intimidate me but Carmelo was one of those men.

        • Britt

          If that were true, I highly doubt LaLa would have been at the Knicks game Monday night. Also, she posts about him on her blog.

          • Reese

            People put on fronts everyday trying to convince themselves as well as other people that they are happy or that their home life is happy.

          • Meyaka

            You right,no wife in the history of this industry has stuck by a cheating man.

  • Dski

    There seemed to be a disconnect or a lack of chemistry between the two of them. It never really felt like there was a comfort level or passion, and Melo never looks at her in the face. So if it is true….sorry but not surprised.

    • Kenedy

      I agree….either that or Melo hates cameras & he’ll do alot to avoid them including eye contact with Lala

    I have never convinced that Carmelo is in love with Lala. And it’s really a shame because she’s such a lovely girl and you can tell that she works really hard to maintain the relationship. In relation to her, he’s either indifferent, at best, or mildly hostile, at worst. I couldn’t believe how he treated her when she asked him to have another baby. That’s when I really knew he didn’t love her – he seemed downright angry at his wife for wanting to have another child. I mean, they are married, they have money, they only have one child, so what’s the problem? I just feel bad for Lala.

    • Britt

      How was Melo angry with her, when she told the cameras to leave so they could have a private conversation about having another baby? We don’t even know what was said.

      • EXACTLY! And just because you are rich doesn’t automatically mean you should have more than one child! Hence the discussion! I hate how we always try to insinuate things about somebody’s marriage from the outside looking in when none of us really know what the hell is going on. Speculation is the enemy of black folks lol

  • awet

    Of course I hope the rumors are just rumors but on the few episodes I saw of her show, there either wasn’t much chemistry or he wasn’t comfortable being on camera.

  • Guest

    I hope its not true. I like them but he never really seemed interested in her (at least from her show). But I hope they can work things out and stay together. Been engaged for decades, married for minutes only to end in divorce….I hope not. Time for Lala to quit her show (boring anyway) and focus on her marriage.

    • Senorita

      I agree with everything you said until the end. Yeah, the show is boring but I don’t think she should completely stop doing the things that made her who she is before she was married to solely focus on the marriage. I guess a better way of putting it is for her to learn to balance career and marriage as should Carmelo, especially when the season ends. I hope they work it out too!

      • Guest

        Yeah that’s what I meant…….didn’t come out right. Thanks.

  • JaneDoe

    It was only a matter of time… Melo like most men prob wanted to try the marraige thing for his son’s sake but that doesn’t always work.. He never seemed 100% happy with her.. OH IMO

    • Reese

      Like my grandmother says the worst reason to marry somebody is because you have a child with them. Some people are better parents than they are spouses.

  • Ms. Bee

    Lol I dont care.

  • shebaby

    naw that ninja was mad he was waiting for him but i dont think they are broken up carmelo was just heated about the comment
