It has been a rough few weeks for New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. First, his team didn't make the playofss and finished with an abysmal 31-51 record. Next, Phil Jackson talked about how he'd be better suited on another team. Finally, it appears Anthony will be separating from his wife, La La.

TMZ reported the story earlier:

Sources close to the couple tell us the actress and NBA superstar are now living separately. La La moved out of the family home last week and has her own place in NYC now.

We’re told the couple’s had ups and downs in the past, but the current NBA season has been extremely stressful on the marriage for several months. Carmelo’s been plagued by trade talks … with the Knicks looking to move him to another team.

Our sources say the split is still amicable. They were together just this past weekend at their 10-year-old son Kiyan’s basketball game.

We’re told La La and Carmelo have NO plans to uproot Kiyan from his friends and school in NY.

It's always a shame when a high-profile couple splits up, but hopefully the two will be on to bigger and better things in the future. Sometimes these things work out for the best.
