On Tuesday we learned that Carmelo and La La Anthony’s marriage of seven years was pretty much over for many reasons including La La discovering that Carmelo had allegedly knocked up a stripper. Neither have filed for divorce. TMZ seems to think that if and when it does happen, there’s a lot of money that they could be fighting over.
Sources say that Carmelo and La La signed a prenup when they got married seven years ago, and the person it benefits most is Carmelo. He has a $124 million contract with the Knicks and has earned more than $200 million during his career as a professional basketball player. He also has contracts with Nike Jordan and Foot Locker. La La, on the other hand, came into the marriage as an MTV VJ.
So here’s where it could get messy. TMZ brings up the fact that many prenups have cheating clauses. It’s not known if Carmelo and La La had one in theirs, but if they did, she could use his alleged baby with his side piece as a bargaining tool. They also have a 10-year-old son named Kiyan, which could also factor into a divorce battle.
TMZ thinks that if La La were to challenge their prenup (like bringing up his cheating), Carmelo might just cut her a huge settlement check. I know he’s got major money, but a cheater’s bank account is no match for an ex-wife scorned. I hope Carmelo has a good relationship with Foot Locker; he might need to get a part-time job there after this divorce is done.
