A source close to the former couple told ET that La La and 32-year-old Carmelo's split after almost seven years of marriage has been "a long time coming".
"La La moved out of the family home last week and has her own place in NYC now", notes the outlet.
The couple married in 2010 in NY, and Carmelo Anthony soon after began seeking a trade from Denver to the Knicks. They share one child together, 10-year-old Kiyan Carmelo Anthony. The couple now has no plans to uproot Kiyan from his school in NY. According to reports, the couple now has no plans to file for a divorce.
La La Anthony has separated from her husband of seven years, basketball pro Carmelo. The unidentified woman is reportedly requesting that Carmelo pay for her medical expenses and take care of additional costs for the baby.
The basketball player has never been a stranger to rumors of infidelity, but now sources close to the star say that he used the "La La is married, I'm not" excuse to do as he pleased! Carmelo's future with the New York Knicks seems to be bleak, and just last week coach Phil Jackson revealed it was likely time for him to go.
Allegedly, Carmelo Anthony's side chick is a dancer at a NY gentlemen's club and he got her pregnant. "[Patrice] is jealous of their friendship, but there's no truth to her cheating with him at all". The pair, who reportedly have no current plans to divorce, have been dodging separation rumors for months. "Or, rather, someone. They were missing Carmelo Anthony", observed Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times of the performance of the Los Angeles Clippers against the Golden State Warriors earlier this year.
