It's been a rough year for New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. It started well with an Olympic gold medal, but when the NBA season started things came crashing down. His team is bad, his GM calls him out every chance he gets, his team can't run the triangle well, his best teammate left the country and doesn't seem to want to come back, another teammate has no knees and the other can't his a shot (and got himself suspended). As if the on court drama wasn't enough, now Melo has new issues at home.
According to the folks over at TMZ, Carmelo and his wife, actress La La Anthony, are separated after nearly 7 years of marriage. According to celebrity news website, La La has moved out of the family home and now has her own place. The pair are the parents of a 10 year-old son, and at this time it appears that they have no plans of relocating him at this time due to the split.
While no official reason has been given for the split, it is well known that a major reason for Carmelo wanting to stay in New York to play is that La La prefered the city over places like Chicago and Denver. Could Carmelo's fiction with Knicks GM Phil Jackson and a potential new team for Carmelo be the reason for the sudden split? Or is there another kind of "triangle" that Melo or La La doesn't want to play?
As more details come out we will let you know what the entire story is.
