TMZ Sports is reporting that New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is separating from his wife La La after seven years of marriage.

Carmelo Anthony and his wife La La are separating, per TMZ Sports. The New York Knicks forward and the Hollywood actress have been married for seven years after meeting back in 2004. They have one son, Kiyan, born in 2007.

La La, while not a star on the level of Carmelo, has made a name for herself as an actress. She has a recurring role on the critically acclaimed tv show “Power.”

According to TMZ, the split was amicable, and they’re not talking divorce yet, just a separation.

This puts Anthony’s public “feud” with Phil Jackson into perspective over the team president’s controversial remarks during his press conference. The ten-time All-Star has more important things on his mind than basketball right now.

No matter what you think of Carmelo Anthony you have to feel for him in this situation. With trade talks surrounding the 32-year-old all season long and sure to continue this offseason, it will be a long summer for one of the most polarizing superstars in NBA history.
