As I told you earlier this week, socialite LaLa Vazquez and NY Knicks star Carmelo Anthony are headed to divorce court. But sources say they are taking the scenic route to get there. Why? Because LaLa wants to wait until the 3rd season of her reality show, LaLa’s Full Court Life, gets underway before she cuts ties with ‘Melo, aka her meal ticket.
Most celebrities are narcissists, so they often forget who brought them to the dance. But VH1’s bosses have gently reminded LaLa that she is a nobody without Anthony.
From Page Six:
Carmelo and La La Anthony have been living separately, sources say, but friends close to the Knick’s wife say she’ll stand by her man and won’t split from the NBA star.
“It is true they haven’t seen much of each other in the past few months,” says a friend of the couple. “She’s been away a lot filming her show, ‘La La’s Full Court Life,’ in London, New York and LA. They are not separated and are still together. She and Melo have a house in LA — so she’s always there when she’s doing auditions.”
But others say they’ve been going through a more rocky period. “They have been living separately for several months now,” says a source. “She’s been living in LA while Carmelo has been in New York.” The source added, “La La used to go out to the games and wanted to be seen . . . now she’s always off doing her own thing.”
According to multiple sources, the pair had been seeking a new home over the summer and were checking out apartments in TriBeCa for up to $25,000 a month. But the search cooled along with the relationship. “During the summer they were looking for a new apartment constantly,” said a source. “About two months ago, that completely dried up. They don’t even return their brokers’ phone calls anymore.”
