Carmelo and La La Anthony have separated

Times are tough for our man Melo.

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at New York Knicks Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

This is sad. NBA super-couple Carmelo and La La Anthony are separated at the moment, according to TMZ Sports:

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.


Our sources say the split is still amicable.

Let’s keep the Phil Jackson jokes to a minimum, folks. Melo and La La have been married for seven years and have a 10-year-old son, Kiyan. Neither you nor I have any idea of how this will or will not affect his basketball-related decisions this summer, so it’s better not to speculate.

One thing is certain, this news adds to the very public list of indignities suffered by Melo in the past few days. His professional business was laid out in a press conference last Friday by an extremely critical Phil Jackson.

Phil is certainly a jackass, and perhaps his relationship with the Knicks cannot be saved, but family is forever. Hopefully Melo, La La and Kiyan all find peace and happiness.
