Lala Anthony Explains Her Decision To Divorce Carmelo Anthony

Lala Anthony filed for divorce from her NBA superstar husband Carmelo Anthony almost a year ago.

Lala taken some time to reflect and heal, and now she’s talking a little bit about her divorce.  Lala sat down with Charlamagne Tha God revealing to him that making the choice to walk away from her husband was an “incredibly hard” one. Lala did acknowledge that people warned her about the risks of being in a relationship with a basketball star, but she said she “didn’t think that was gonna happen,” addressing infidelity rumors’ that surfaced during a past breakup.

“It happened, and it was a learning experience, and it’s just another chapter in my life that I can learn from,” Lala told Charlamagne.

The actress made it clear that walking away was “an incredibly hard decision” for her.

“Walking away on your own and trying to rebuild a life by yourself… I was with him when he was 19 years old, like that’s all I’ve known.”

“To step away from that and try to build my own life and still keep my sanity and keep things normal for my son who only knew his mom and his dad together – that wasn’t the easier decision, but I had to make a decision for myself. So now it’s like, wow, if I could do that, I could do anything.”

Anthony went on to share that she and Melo are happily co-parenting their 15-year-old son, and are trying to “be a great example” for him.

“We’re still a family and we do things together. I don’t want my son to look at his parents like they didn’t get along. He’s looking at us as an example.”

Good for them doing the right thing.
