Trouble in paradise on La La's Full Court Life! Days after Carmelo Anthony was suspended from the Knicks without pay after his explosive fight with Kevin Garnett, new reports are revealing that Carmelo's temper was raised because he is separated from his wife La La Anthony!
The fight got super heated between the two NBA stars and Kevin got down and dirty when he made accusations about Carmelo's wife! “Your… wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,” Kevin yelled on court according to Black Sports Online. Um… yuck, but yum?
The comment hit too close to home for Carmelo who has been keeping his marital problems out of the press for months until the explosive accusation brought things to life!

"There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man. I felt like we crossed a line, but like I said, we both have an understanding right now, we handled it the way we handled it," Carmelo said about the altercation.
"Nobody needs to know what was said behind closed doors, so that situation was handled,” he added. “I wanted to talk to KG [outside his bus]. I think it was something we both needed to get off our chest and see what really the problem was."
La La has been very quiet about her husband on twitter and made her first court-side appearance in months at Monday's game. “Living life. Counting blessings, not burdens,” she tweeted in response to the incident. Adding, “Not for nothing, but we ALL deserve a check or some free cereal 4all the publicity we’ve given Honey Nut Cheerios! LOL!”
“It is true they haven’t seen much of each other in the past few months,” a friend of the couple reveals to the NY Post. “She’s been away a lot filming her show, ‘La La’s Full Court Life,’ in London, New York and LA."
However the friend reveals they are still very much married! "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.”
However a different source, also close to the couple, reveals that's just an excuse and the couple is definitely having marital problems. “La La used to go out to the games and wanted to be seen . . . now she’s always off doing her own thing.”
One thing Carmelo isn't onboard with is La La's reported partying. She's been hanging out in Miami with girlfriends and hitting the clubs. The couple was supposed to live in NYC together but over the summer in the middle of looking at apartments they suddenly lost interest.
“During the summer they were looking for a new apartment constantly,” a source reveals. “About two months ago, that completely dried up. They don’t even return their brokers’ phone calls anymore.”
And despite Garnett's comment about La La at the game, a friend shares that infidelity is not the source of their problems. “I have not heard anything about him having another woman. La La has never slept with Garnett.”
Reps for the couple have not commented.
