Carmelo Anthony Allegedly Fathered Another Child, Only This One’s With A New York Gentleman’s Club Dancer

To say it has been a rough couple of days for Carmelo Anthony would be an understatement.


Anthony was already having an on-going feud with Knicks President Phil Jackson, creating uncertainty about the 32-year-old’s future with organization in New York.

Adding to Melo’s woes, as many sources have reported, Anthony and his wife La La have separated.


Despite their separation, the Washington Post reported, Melo and La La are on “good terms,” though La La is no longer living in the family’s home. The couple has been together since 2010, but the relationship has been troubled for a while, TMZ reported.

And Melo’s week didn’t get any better when a woman claimed that Melo got her pregnant.


According to reports, Melo allegedly had a little too much fun with a woman he met at a New York gentleman’s club several months back.


The unnamed woman claims she is six months pregnant and said that she would seek money to cover medical expenses and child support costs, MSN reported.

Though details are limited, several websites are reporting on the unfolding story.


Thankfully, the internet has been super understanding of Melo’s most recent troubles…


Well, not quite. Fans got lots of opportunities for jokes at Melo’s expense.


Ouch. Too soon? Or Too late?

Basketball fans really know how to throw out the verbal haymakers.


Good to know people got your back.


Not everyone was having a laugh. Some people were broken up over the Melo / La La split.


They tweeted their support for Melo.


And they straight up gave him life advice.


Others let Anthony know they weren’t happy with his behavior.


Lots of angry former fans letting him hear it.


And they went so far as to revoke his Rican-card.


The sarcasm was real.


A few fans smelled a break up conspiracy to get Melo out of New York City.


It might seem far fetched (and it probably is), but a few people seem to think the theory could be legit.


They even speculated on the crumbling relationship between Phil Jackson and Anthony.


Just last week, Phil Jackson commented on Anthony’s future with the team…


As ABC pointed out, Jackson threw some professional shade at Melo, saying, “We’ve not been able to win with [Anthony] on the court at this time. I think the direction with our team is that he’s a player that would be better off somewhere else and using his talent somewhere where he can win or chase that championship.”

… Anthony responded to Jackson’s comments with a single image on Instagram.


Melo kept his message short, writing, “REALLY ?? #StayMe7o”

Whatever happens to Melo over the next few months, just remember: if you’re having a bad day, it could be worse.

La La Anthony is opening up about her close relationship with Vanessa Bryant, whom she calls “family”.

In an interview with ET, the Puerto Rican actress and television personality talked about how her and Bryant are creating “life long bonds” between their children by having them spend quality time together. La La is mother to 13-year-old Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, while Bryant is mother to three daughters (Natalia, Bianka Bella, Capri Kobe).

Anthony has previous documented the two families hanging out together on social media.

She appears to have been spending a lot of time with Vanessa Bryant since Kobe Bryant passed away in January. She even posted an adorable TikTok video of the two of them doing the “Don’t React Challenge” where they listen to old school hits and try not to dance or move to the music. Fans were overjoyed to see Vanessa smiling and laughing again.

La La said that having her son spend time with Vanessa’s kids is “one of the most important parts” of their friendship. “They [the kids] look at themselves as cousins and they do a lot together,” she said. “Kiyan’s the oldest, but all the kids look up to Kiyan.” She went on to explain how Bryant’s kids are always calling Kiyan for advice and support.

La La got deep when she talked about how deeply the two women’s lives are intertwined.

“I’ve been a part of [Vanessa’s children’s] lives from before they were even thought of, so just to continue to be a part of their journey is amazing, to be Auntie La La and to always be there for them no matter what is an amazing thing and responsibility that I don’t take lightly,” she says.

She continued by saying, “That’s my family and that’s what it’s always gonna be. I’m always [going to have] their best interests at heart no matter what.”

This isn’t the first time La La has gotten candid about her relationship with Vanessa. Back in September, La La explained how much of an honor it is to be able to be part of Vanessa’s support system in the difficult months after her husband and her daughter’s deaths.

“You don’t dip out on your friends when it gets really hard,” she told ET. “And she’s going through something that is unimaginable, that I can’t even fathom what that feels like.”

“Just to be a friend and be there to make her laugh when she needs to, cry when she needs to, is a beautiful thing,” she continued. “But that’s what friends do for each other. I’m always going to be there for her and the girls and just want to see her just continue to be strong and amazing.”

Learn How Basketball Superstar Carmelo Anthony Got Where He Is Today In 21 Steps

Carmelo Anthony is one of basketball’s biggest stars. But do you know everything there is to know about the legendary player’s life and success? Anthony’s story starts as a young kid growing up in New York and Baltimore and leaves off where he is today – an international superstar, both on and off the court. Learn about where he came from and how he got to where he is today with these 21 things you’ve just got to know about Carmelo Anthony.

1. Humble Beginnings

Pinterest @ViccyLover2008

Carmelo Anthony was born on May 29, 1984 at the Red Hook Project in Brooklyn, New York to a Puerto Rican father and a black mother. Anthony’s middle name is Kyam, after his father, who passed away after a battle with cancer when he was only 2 years old. He has two brothers, Robert and Wilford, a half-sister, Daphne, and a sister, Michelle, who passed away in 2010.

2. A Basketball Upbringing

Pinterest

Anthony was raised in the Red Hook Project as a small child. When he was eight years old, his family moved to a tough neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland, where he honed his athletic skills as a diversion from the drugs and violence in the area.

3. Basketball’s Young Star

Pinterest

In high school, Anthony was already proving himself as a basketball star. He started his high school basketball career at Towson Catholic High School where he soon earned himself the title of the Baltimore Catholic League Player of the Year and the Baltimore Sun’s metro player of the year in 2001. Anthony wasn’t exactly a star pupil, though – he often skipped school, which led to his suspension on multiple occasions.

4. Too Small For The Pros

Pinterest

Despite all of his early high school success, pro scouts weren’t taking any notice. Many professional scouts thought the young Anthony was too skinny and not quite ready for the physical nature of the game at the NBA level. After his junior year of high school, however, Division I college coaches were lined up and ready to recruit him to their schools.

5. A Collegiate Future

Unlike the high school-to-pro players that came before him, Anthony decided to declare his intent to play at Syracuse University before his senior year of high school began. Unfortunately, as his grades dropped below a C-average, his future of college basketball looked bleak. Anthony decided to transfer to Oak Hill Academy for his senior year, where he wowed NBA scouts with his performance at numerous big-name tournaments.

6. Senior Success

Pinterest

As a senior, he led the AAU Baltimore Select team to the Adidas Big Time Tournament’s Final Four. During the tournament, he averaged 25.2 points per game and attracted significant attention from the NBA.

7. Famous Friendships

Pinterest

At the USA Basketball Youth Development Festival later that same year, he helped the East Team win a silver medal. At the same time, he tied LeBron James for the tournament’ scoring leader position at a strong 24 points per game and 66% shooting percentage from the field. It was at this tournament that James and Anthony began what would turn into a lifelong friendship.

8. High School Success

Anthony’s high school success didn’t end there, however – Oak Hill Academy went on to win two more big-name tournaments, including the Nike Academy, where Anthony faced off against James’ St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in a much-anticipated match-up. Oak Hill won the game 72-66, but James outscored Anthony by 2 points.

9. The Future New York Knicks

Pinterest

At the 2002 McDonald’s All-American Game, Anthony made even more life-long friendships. It was there, among the crowds and the pro scouts that Anthony first played with Raymond Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire – two of his future New York Knicks teammates.

10. An American All-Star

Twitter @ballislife

Anthony’s fantastic performances at these high school All-Star Games brought him significant attention from the NBA and even brought him the honor of being HoopScoop’s number one ranked high school senior of 2002. College Basketball News ranked him at number two in the nation and All-Star Sports gave him a respectable number three rating.

11. Classroom Struggles

Pinterest

Despite all of his success on the court, Anthony continued to struggle in the classroom. By the time the spring of 2002 rolled around, Anthony had yet to produce the ACT score of 18 necessary for him to enroll at Syracuse University. This caused rumours about whether or not Anthony would ditch his college plans and head straight for the pros.

12. College-bound!

Pinterest

In April of 2002, however, Anthony managed a 19 on his ACT and decided to stick with his plans to head to college in the fall. He was officially Syracuse-bound.

13. The College Year

Pinterest

Despite all of this build-toward college, Anthony only played one season with the Syracuse Orange. During the 2002-2003 season, he averaged 22.2 points (16th in the NCAA and 4th in the Big East) and 10 rebounds per game (19th in the NCAA and 3rd in the Big East but 1st among freshman).

14. NCAA Success

Pinterest

In just one year of college, however, Anthony helped the Syracuse Orange to their first-ever NCAA tournament title. Anthony led the way in nearly every aspect as a team leader in scoring, rebounds, minutes played (an astonishing 36.4 minutes per game, field goals made, free throws made, and free throw attempts.

15. The Final Four

Pinterest

Even though he was just a freshman, during his first (and only) Final Four Appearance, Anthony wowed the world with a 33-point bonanza against the University of Texas – a tournament record for freshman. In the championship game against the University of Kansas, he fought for another 20 points and 10 rebounds, earning himself the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player Award.

16. To the Draft!

Pinterest

Although he originally intended to stay in Syracuse for two seasons, his all-star success caused him to abandon his college, career and declare his eligibility for the 2003 draft. He was chosen in the first round, third overall by the Denver Nuggets, out of a draft pool that also included veritable NBA powerhouses LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwayne Wade.

17. The Denver Years

Pinterest

While in Denver, Anthony led the Nuggets to the NBA playoffs every season from 2004 to 2010. Despite leading the Nuggets to two division titles and their first Conference Finals since in 1985, he was traded to the New York Knicks in 2011, just days before the trade deadline.

18. In the Big Apple

Pinterest

After being traded to New York, Anthony continued to impress. He achieved a career-high score of 62 points in one game on January 24, 2014 against the Charlotte Bobcats.

19. Success On A Global Stage

Pinterest

Anthony has played for the USA Olympic Basketball Team four times, winning bronze in 2004, and gold medals at the 2008, 2012, and 2016 Summe Olympics. In addition to his medals, Anthony is the national team’s all-time leader in scoring, rebounds, and games played.

20. The Infamous Brawl

Twitter @ballislife

Despite his success as a leading scorer and rebounder, Anthony has had his fair share of suspensions from the NBA, most notably, as a result of the infamous Knicks-Nuggets brawl at MSG, which earned him a solid 15 game suspension.

21. Family Life

Pinterest

It’s not all about basketball for Anthony, however. He married his fiance Alani “La La” Vazquez on July 10, 2010 at Ciprini’s in New York City before 320 guests. Their son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, was born in March 2007.
