NBA star Carmelo and actress LaLa Anthony have been in the news a lot lately due to their marital troubles. While the future of their marriage is uncertain, it is definitely certain that LaLa won’t have to spend her life alone. Recently, famous comedian, Chris Rock, took to publicly announce his attraction for the lovely La La.
LaLa Has Options And Mel Is Livid:
While promoting his Total Blackout World Tour, comedian Chris Rock stopped by the daytime talk show, Wendy. While on the show, Wendy Williams asked the newly divorced Rock, 52, if he was friends with Carmelo and La La. In a conversation with Wendy, the daytime diva asked Rock if he attended the Met Gala. Rock jokingly called the ball the ” Jet Ball” referencing the number of African-Americans present. Admitting that he saw LaLa, he also mentioned how fabulous she looked. Chris shared with Wendy that while he wasn’t necessarily friends with LaLa and Carmelo, they were “friendly”. Then, Rock took the opportunity to shoot his shot.
If La La is interested in going short next time,’ Chris began. ‘La La is bad, woo! Hey, they’re married; you’re not supposed to mess with other team’s players. But she’s hot though. She looked great the other night,’ Chris continued, speaking about a photo of La La at the Met Gala in New York City. ‘La La will you? La La let’s go to ‘La La Land!’

While the audience laughed, one person was not laughing. A source close to Carmelo Anthony told The Daily Mail that Carmelo was pissed at Rock’s comments. Melo was so angry that he allegedly sent a text message to several of his friends venting about Rock’s advances towards LaLa. After sending the text message, the NBA star took it a step further and allegedly called director Spike Lee to warn Chris about staying away from his wife.
He sent a text to several of his friends asking “Did y’all see this bulls**t? This n**** on TV trying to scoop up my wife.”
While Carmelo was allegedly livid, his wife, however, was reportedly flattered. The actress allegedly told her friends that she was very tempted to post the clip on her Instagram with three heart emojis as a caption.
She felt like Carmelo needs to realize that just because he didn’t respect his marriage vows doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t want her. The only reason she didn’t post the clip is because she knew it would fuel more headlines about their split, the source revealed to The Daily Mail.
According to The Daily Mail, La La’s friends don’t think it’s such a bad idea as they have encouraged La La to go out with Chris. Daily Mail also learned that LaLa’s best friends, Kim Kardashian and Ciara, have both been pushing their friend to quietly go out with Chris.
They both know she’s clearly not ready to date anyone, but both feel she may as well go out with a man that thinks she’s hot, have a good time and a whole bunch of laughs while doing it. Both feel it would really teach Carmelo a lesson too,’ the source revealed.
It’s interesting that her friends would encourage her to date Chris Rock who is reportedly in a relationship with 33 year-old actress Megalyn Echikunwoke. The Anthonys aren’t in the best place but it appears that Carmelo really wants to salvage his relationship with his wife. The couple spent Mother’s Day together as they went to dinner with their 10-year-old son Kiyan at the New York City sushi restaurant Neta. Even if La La does decide to stay with Mel, this should be a lesson to him that if he doesn’t appreciate La La, another famous, wealthy man will.
