Yesterday we told you the sad news about Carmelo, 32, and La La Anthony, 37, deciding to separate. They are reportedly living apart as La La moved out of the home they share together in New York City. The original report was that the stress of his now finished NBA season and the constant trade rumors that encircled Carmelo heavily impacted their marriage. But the new claim is that another deciding factor in the couple’s decision to separate was that Carmelo Anthony cheated and impregnated another woman.
According to TMZ Sports, sources told them that Carmelo engaged in an affair with a woman who works at a gentlemen’s club in NYC. And while this alleged woman hasn’t come out publicly and said anything on her own, the sources claim that she is more than six months pregnant with a child by the New York Knicks small forward. Sources that are actually close to the strained couple admit that their marriage has been having a hard time for a while now, and honestly, the pregnancy wasn’t actually the straw that broke the camel’s back. There were too many other issues hampering the relationship. TMZ reports that despite no divorce papers being filed just yet, reconciliation doesn’t seem likely.
While there have been no statements from either Carmelo or La La about their split, La La hasn’t decided to hide out. She shared a few new posts of herself and her son on social media in the wake of the news:
She also stepped out for brunch today with friends without her ring on:
The pair married in 2010 and have 10-year-old son Kiyan together.
