La La and Carmelo Anthony Spend Mother’s Day Together Amid Separation
La La and Carmelo Anthony put their marital problems aside to spend Mother’s Day together with their son Kiyan in New York City.
The familia was spotted by TMZ heading into a sushi restaurant and maintained straight faces in front of the paparazzi. After dinner, La La crossed the street to get frozen yogurt with her son as the NBA star followed behind.
Earlier in the day, La La took to Instagram to express how Kiyan has helped her get through her “darkest days.”
“Kiyan Carmelo Anthony….life takes many unexpected twists and turns BUT as long as I have you I know I can get through ANYTHING! You are my strength in my darkest days. You are the reason I can smile in the midst of anything life throws my way. I know I did something right to be blessed with you. THANK YOU GOD FOR MY BIGGEST BLESSING! MOMMY LOVES YOU! #happymothersday,” she captioned a photo of the 10-year-old.
She also gave a similar shoutout to her mother while hosting Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms on VH1 saying, “I definitely want to take a minute to acknowledge my mother Carmen Surillo who has been there for me through the best times, the toughest times, everything. Thank you so much mom for being my rock.”
The former MTV host attended the Met Gala alone earlier this month after reports of her surprising split with Carmelo. It was there at fashion’s biggest event of the year that she made a statement by wearing a ring on every finger but one, the ring finger. The pair had been together for nearly a decade and married for seven years. The Knicks player allegedly had an affair leading to a separation.
