Hours after the news spread like wildfire on social media Monday evening that NBA star Carmelo Anthony and La La have separated, came the allegation that the reason for the split is because Melo got an exotic dancer pregnant.
TMZ Sports has reported that Anthony and his wife of seven years have split because he allegedly knocked up a stripper who works at a gentlemen’s club in New York City. The media outlet also reported that the unidentified woman is six months along and fully expects Anthony to step up and pay for medical bills and support for their child.
A source close to La La said that she of course isn’t happy about this news, but there have been other issues in their marriage that have pretty much made a split inevitable. The source also said their breakup is amicable, in fact the former couple do not even live together anymore. So it looks like we can expect divorce papers to be filed soon.
Anthony and La La began dating in 2004 when she hosted MTV’s Total Request Live. They tied the knot in 2010 and share a 10-year-old son named Kiyan.
Twitter has been reacting to the New York Knicks star’s alleged infidelity with tons of memes and GIFs.
