Photographs of Carmelo Anthony relaxing on a yacht near an unidentified woman in a swimsuit have surfaced online, resulting in rumors that Carmelo is cheating on his wife, LaLa Anthony,33 on her birthday.
In a video, Carmelo addressed the rumors, stating that he’s currently on a business trip with a married couple and their family. He also said that he’s only going to address the issue one time.
“Keep my family out this man. I’m over here trying to do my business retreat. I’m over here trying to have a good time. I’m on a boat with some friends,” Carmelo said before stating that his friends are married and don’t have anything to do with anything.
“Y’all are exposing somebody’s wife. Y’all are exposing somebody’s kids. Come on! Leave that alone. That ain’t cool.”
Carmelo went on to say that his friends are “discreet” and that people need to let them live their lives.
