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?
