Well, look what we have here! LaLa Anthony and her estranged husband Carmelo Anthony all coupled up at Melo’s fashion event in NYC. Are they back on? Let’s discuss inside…
Before slaying her way to Rihanna’s Diamond Ball, LaLa Anthony stepped out to show support for her estranged husband Carmelo Anthony’s newest venture.
LaLa and Melo, who recently signed with the Houston Rockets, were all boo’d up at the NBA All-Star’s “Melo Made” capsule collection event that was held in the Meatpacking District of NYC.
Back in April 2017, it was reported La and Melo, who share 11-year-old Kiyan Anthony, had separated with La La having moving out of the family’s New York home and into her own place after 7 years of marriage. The breakup news came as rumors were circulating that Melo had allegedly got a NYC stripper pregnant. That hasn’t been confirmed as of yet.
In June 2017, LaLa revealed on the “Wendy Williams Show” that she didn’t have any plans on divorcing the NBA star and that she was totally focused on raising Kiyan in a healthy environment. La and Melo have been spotted together since the split – at Kiyan’s basketball games, out to eat with Kiyan and they both went to visit the family of slain Bronx teen Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.
The “Power” star was also spotted courtside at Madison Square Garden when Melo had a “homecoming” game against the Knicks after he was traded to the OKC Thunder.
However, this is the first time we’ve seen them together all hugged up since announcement of the split. Maybe all of that extraness Melo was posting on social media to desperately get LaLa back worked.
The Think Like A Man actress played with prints in this Stella McCartney number which paired with yellow pumps for the event.
“Melo Made” is an ongoing series of brand collaborations with the baller’s favorite fashion brands. The first collection will include pieces by Rag & Bone and the Jordan Brand collection of sneakers and T-shirts, including a new interpretation of the Air Jordan XX, and a separate five-piece apparel collection, according to WWD.
This is his first multibrand collaboration in ready-to-wear and accessories.
“I’ve been around fashion for a while, observing and being involved, but taking my time and figuring out what I can do to differentiate myself from what everybody else is doing,” the Houston ROcket player said before the event. “I found out a lot of brands wanted me to do collaborations, capsules and lines, so I said, ‘why not make this my own: Melo Made/House of Melo, and just put all the brands under one roof.’” Nice!
