Carmelo Anthony Confirms Relationship Status With Wife Lala Vazquez
NBA Knicks baller Carmelo Anthony is finally speaking out to clear up the immediate break-up rumors that surfaced following his heated (and humorous) altercation with Boston Celtics player Kevin Garnett, who allegedly told Melo that his wife Lala’s milkshake brings all the boys to the yard……cause it “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Sources have told the Daily News that Anthony and his wife have been having marital problems and are living apart. She didn’t show up at the event as expected, but Anthony said there is no trouble in paradise.
“We have our time. We have our down time,” he said. “She works. I work. We make it work. Communication is the key.”
Carmelo also had this to say in response to KG’s below-the-belt jab at his wife, when asked what would be the first thing he eats after recently finishing a 15-day fast:
Just days after Boston bigmouth Kevin Garnett riled him by reportedly saying, “Your wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,” Anthony turned his rival’s heckling into humor.
“I’m definitely going to get a bowl of that, for sure,” a mellow Melo said at the launch of his new signature sneaker, Air Jordan Melo M9, at Cipriani on Wall St.
So between this and Lala’s two cents last week, only one solid piece of information is known: Lala really does taste like Honey Nut Cheerios. 50 points for Melo.
