It appears we now know why La La Anthony is filing for divorce from Carmelo Anthony. The former MTV VJ reportedly filed for divorce from the NBA superstar on Thursday after 11 years of marriage and one son together.
According to TMZ, La La, 41, filed the paperwork in New York and cited “irreconcilable differences.” An insider told the outlet the former couple have been separated “for a while,” but “remain friends.
According to Hollywood Unlocked, it seems to be something deeper going on as a young lady exposed the Portland Trail Blazers star as being the father of her premature twin babies.
“The woman explained that she met Carmelo in New York in 2020. After turning him down a few times, he insisted that he was not trying to hit on her but just wanted to be “cool” and “hang out.” Because of his good energy and vibe, she went along with it and kept in contact with him. She said during 2020, they talked almost every day and the two eventually hung out and later started hooking up. She noted that although she knew Carmelo was married, he came off as a single man because he would FaceTime her in his bed at his home, who he shares with LaLa Anthony, and noted that he didn’t even spend holidays with his family!
While she admits that she’s no angel, she says she honestly didn’t feel bad about seeing Carmelo because she alleges that she also knows “who’s f*cking LaLa too!” Aside from that, in September, the woman found out she was pregnant with twins! The plan was for her to get an abortion in LA, which Carmelo agreed to as neither of them wanted it to turn into a bigger situation. The woman, 38, said she needed a medical abortion, which means she had to be accompanied by someone. But Carmelo never flew back from Portland to LA to show up for the procedure.”
Unfortunately, it became way too late for her to have an abortion, so the both of them devised a plan for her to fly out to London to have the babies with the agreement that he would come out there and visit when his season was over.
“To note, the woman said as the two were figuring out what they were going to do, Carmelo suggested making the babies British citizens. She said she figured he would say that because it’s hard to update the birth certificates, and knew she would eventually want his last name on it. She said she went ahead and did so, but quickly reversed it because she knew it was the wrong move.
The babies were born in April, prematurely as they came out two months early! Sadly, they are still in the hospital as they have to remain there until her due date, which was scheduled for mid-June. (This is common for premature babies). However, the woman shared that her son developed problems with his brain and lacked oxygen, so he needed surgery.
The surgery happened earlier this month, and she tried to contact Carmelo as doctors told the woman her son was not waking up. However, she alleged that Carmelo never answered.”
He then allegedly emailed the young lady and stated he threw his phone against the wall for some unknown reason and wasn’t able to contact her.
She even dropped messages to prove things she was saying.
The woman admitted to having suicidal thoughts because everything became so overwhelming.
“As for her reason for speaking out now, she says she realized she’s been “living a whole lie” and it’s been eating her up inside. She has not told her family or close friends about her kids and even previously denied pregnancy rumors to protect Carmelo and his family.
Although he has provided a place and some money, she said that’s not enough for her kids who need to know who their dad is. “I’ve seen my wrong in the situation and I should’ve never let this get this far, but I don’t want my kids to suffer.” She even noted that she’s open to speaking with LaLa, but doubt she would give her the opportunity to talk things over.
She also noted that one of Lala Anthony’s close friends got involved and even hired a private investigator to find out who she was. However, the woman didn’t want to get too deep into those details as her main focus is to get her story out and grab Carmelo’s attention.
She added that her motive is not to ruin Carmelo, “be messy or hurt people” adding, “I don’t want to destroy, their family.” She goes on to admit, “I just can’t function like this.”
Not a good look for Melo.
