It seems as though more and more of our favorite celebrity couples are hitting Splitsville, and unfortunately La La and Carmello Anthony are the latest to fall victim to the plague hitting hollywood marriages.
News broke out Sunday night that basketball player Carmelo Anthony (32) and wife La La Anthony (37) are separating after 8 years of marriage. According to TMZ, the couple was already have marital issues, and that this current NBA season added extra stress on the marriage due to trade talks surrounding Carmelo Anthony.
Carmelo who currently plays for the New York Knicks, has been plagued with trade rumors the past few seasons but it seems like now the Knicks are seriously ready to trade the 10 time All Star player.
As if separating from your husband of 8 years wasn’t hard enough, TMZ reported today that the reason La La left and moved into her own place in New York was because Carmelo is allegedly the father of a dancer’s unborn child. The woman who has yet to be identified is claiming to be 6 months pregnant with Carmelo’s 2nd child and is demanding that Carmelo supports the child with medical expenses and financial support. He and La La have a 10 year old son together.
Even though divorce papers have yet to be filed, sources close to the couple are saying that there is no chance of reconciliation between the two. I hate to see such a beautiful couple split up, especially in this manner.
