La La Talks Explaining Her Split From Carmelo Anthony To Their Son
When the news hit that LaLa Anthony and Carmelo Anthony were splitting, social media was set ablaze, per usual. There were GIFs, rants, and just commentary overall on the new status of their relationship ranging from outraged to dramatic and comical. And as strangers didn’t take the news well, we can only imagine how their 10-year-old son Kiyan reacted.
In a recent interview with ExtraTV, Anthony spoke about how she explained the situation between her and his father to Kiyan. While she said she tried to give him excuses as to why the paparazzi were out in full effect during their family Mother’s Day outing, which included her estranged husband, he didn’t believe them.
“He said, ‘Mom, the photographers have been following me everywhere,’” she reenacts, giggling. “I said, “Well, it’s getting hot outside, and they’re trying to get summer fashions for the magazines.’ Then he followed up and said, ‘Well mom, I’m wearing a sweatsuit. That’s not summer fashions.’”
When the interviewer followed up by asking LaLa and Carmelo have said to their son about their split, she offered, “We explain it in a way that works for a 10-year-old.”
