Earlier this week Knicks president Phil Jackson proclaimed Anthony "would be better off somewhere else." Soon after suffering through yet another losing season and being directed toward the door by Jackson, it was revealed that Anthony and his wife, television personality La La, had split up and were on their way to divorce.
A report from TMZ Sports may have shed some light on their breakup:
Carmelo Anthony was messing around with a woman who now claims she's pregnant with his baby — and as you can imagine, his wife, La La, is pissed … TMZ Sports has learned.
Multiple sources tell us … the other woman often works at a gentlemen's club in NYC, and we're told she's claiming to be 6 and a half months pregnant with Melo's child.
The unfortunate combination of Anthony's perceived aloofness and his rough past week has led him to find himself on the wrong side of some, I'm sorry to say, absolutely hilarious roastings, most of which have been culled by Reddit user clutchtho:
"it's the low effort D"
"lost the only ring he can get"
"thrives in isolation"
"at least he can finally shoot"
"Lala wanted to build the relationship around Kristaps"
Here's to hoping Melo ends up in a situation in which he's actually appreciated next season
