La La Anthony's wedding
La La Vasquez and NY Knicks basketball legend, Carmelo Anthony, was introduced by the MTV host, DJ Clue, and within four years, they had a son together named Kiyan.
Is Lala Anthony married? By 2004, Carmelo had popped the question on Christmas Day, allegedly after Kiyan began asking questions about their family dynamic. These lovebirds shared their vows on 10 July 2010 at a star-studded ceremony at their home, with 320 guests including celebrities such as Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams, Le Bron James, and Kim Kardashian, just to name a few.
"And I'm like, 'To be honest, I didn't expect that.' I didn't go into this marriage expecting that."
Alani and Carmelo have made an effort to remain friends through this ordeal for the sake of their son, Kiyan, who has just turned 17 in 2021.
"We started as best friends and I love that we still have that friendship. We're raising a kid together, there's no drama with us."
La La Anthony has not let her recent divorce with Carmelo get her down, as she has three new series and another three movies coming up in 2021. In addition, she is regularly seen out and about with Kim Kardashian, taking full advantage of the single life. And with a body like that, who can blame her.
Kim Kardashian jokes about why she divorced Kanye when she made headlines after presenting an instalment of Saturday Night Live. The media sensation made her TV hosting debut in a snug pink dress, shamelessly cracking jokes about her controversial family.
