Carmelo Anthony and La La Anthony have a complicated relationship. He made her the original Wendy Williams when rumors were circling that he got his side-piece pregnant. That indeed did happen and he has a daughter with Mia Angel Burks named Genesis. La La and Anthony were going to divorce, which was probably going to be messy since he’s worth a lot of money and he cheated on her so, you know. But then it seemed like Carmelo was fighting to get La La back and maybe reconciliation was on the horizon? Well, you might want to shoot that theory to Hell because Carmelo was caught on a yacht with a woman who wasn’t La La.
La La and Carmelo have been married since 2010 and have a 12-year-old son, Kiyan. After cheating on La La and creating a whole new baby, the two broke up but Carmelo tried really hard to get her back by liking all her Instagram pictures. That huge act of devotion and redemption, must’ve worked, because La La and Carmelo said that they were still working on things back in October.
But according to Carmelo, she’s just a friend and was there with her own husband and there is nothing going on. He posted a video talking about it:

“Imma address this one time and one time only, and I’m really only addressing it for my family. Keep my family out of this man. I’m over here trying to do my business retreat, I’m over here trying to have a good time… I’m on a boat with some friends… them people are married man, they don’t got nothing to do with anything. Y’all wanna expose; y’all exposing somebody’s wife, y’all exposing somebody’s kids. …Leave that alone, man, that ain’t cool. Now I gotta deal with that: I gotta deal with that with my son, I gotta deal with that with my wife…. Usually I won’t address this but I had to address this I can’t let this one slide cause this shit ain’t cool no more.”
Page Six has a source who tells them that La La is not over Carmelo’s past cheating, and is in therapy:
“Even though they are still married they are still working on their marriage. She has trust issues, and she does not trust him fully. She is currently in therapy.”
Can I just say something about the most upsetting thing regarding this story? Rich people need to stop calling lounging on yachts “work”. I don’t care if you guys were crunching numbers for two hours earlier in the day–people can’t lounge on a yacht for a break when they work at McDonald’s. What the fuck is a “business retreat”? Isn’t he a basketball player? What basketball business occurs on a yacht? Just say you’re going on a tax-exempt vacation, already.
