Now that there is speculation that La La Anthony is going to walk away from her marriage to Carmelo Anthony, her hot girl summer has officially commenced.
She was down in New Orleans over the weekend for Essence Festival, and wasn’t taking questions about her personal life, but did let people know how she was feeling. While enjoying good music and company (of former Think Like a Man co-star Terrence J), she took the stage and the microphone at an event to shout out all of the independent women in the house.
“All my ladies, if you don’t give a f–k about a n—a make some noise!” she said. As the women in the audience screamed, and Terrence J looked on and grinned in surprise, she added, “I really don’t, though. I really don’t, though.”
La La went on to dedicate the City Girls hit “Act Up” to the women, which is of course, a hot girl summer anthem.
“This next song is going out to all my independent ladies who don’t need a n—a for sh-t!”
La La and Carmelo Anthony have been in the news since he was photographed on a boat with a woman who was not his wife around the time of her birthday. While Carmelo maintained that the woman was the wife of a business partner whom he was traveling with around the south of France, La La posted an illustration of a heart with a knife it in it on her social media before quickly deleting it. She has since, through her rep, confirmed that she’s currently participating in “legal discussions” to figure out the future of her marriage.
“As La La and Carmelo have been living apart for quite some time, La La is proceeding with legal discussions as the next step in their relationship,” the rep said in a statement. “They will remain loving and committed parents to their son.”
After announcing an engagement in 2004, the couple wed in 2010. They separated in 2017 following rumors of cheating on his part (and the unconfirmed conception of a child), but they reconciled in late 2018.
