Carmelo Anthony Could Suffer A Huge Blow To His $160 Million Net Worth From Divorce With La La Anthony
Anthony’s divorce with La La won’t come easy, however. As is the case with such proceedings, they aren’t ever done without a significant amount of money being involved usually.
All of it will come down to the prenups that La La and Carmelo have agreed upon as well as the actions of the Lakers star. If it can be proved that Melo was involved in acts of infedility, then La La could stand to gain a significant of money from her ex-husband.
Where does the story of Melo cheating stem from? Back in 2017, a dancer from the New York City gentlemen’s club claimed that Melo had impregnated her and that she completely expected Carmelo to contribute financially.
This incident did lead to that split in 2017, but the couple was able to reconcille their differences briefly in 2018 but ultimately couldn’t make it through. The two share a 14 year old son, Kiyan, who will be transitioning to high school.
Melo is also ready to enter the next phase of his NBA career as he joins his buddy LeBron James on the Los Angeles Lakers. After having found a home with the Portland Trailblazers the last few years, the once thought to be washed star is ready to be one of the Lakers biggest role players.
