Carmelo Anthony, wife La La divorce could be held up by prenup
Carmelo Anthony and his wife La La appear to be headed for a divorce, but there will apparently be a number of legal hurdles they must clear before any official split can be finalized.
According to a report from TMZ, Anthony and his wife signed a prenup before they got married in 2010, and it “benefits Carmelo way more than La La.” Carmelo, who is entering the final year of a five-year, $124 million contract he signed with the New York Knicks, has made more than $200 million on the court in his career. He also has lucrative endorsement deals with Jordan, Foot Locker and other brands.
The prenup is obviously designed to protect Carmelo more than La La, but Mrs. Anthony was earning money as an on-air personality for MTV when she first met Carmelo. She has also continued with some actress, modeling and producer work.
Many prenuptial agreements are altered or voided if one person cheats, and there are rumors that Carmelo has cheated on La La for years and impregnated a stripper. Those allegations — if La La is even the one making them — would need to be sorted through in court.
Page Six has been reporting that Carmelo and La La have had marital problems for years, and one source told the gossip publication that their marriage has been “more of a business arrangement” for quite some time. They apparently split three years ago and ended up getting back together, though some of the details surrounding this rough patch (read more here) make that seem unlikely this time around.
In any event, a high profile split is rarely a simple situation. Carmelo and La La, who have a son together, will almost certainly be no exception.
