La La and Carmelo Anthony have reportedly split up after almost 7 years of marriage. The former MTV host and NBA star are living some real drama after a woman claimed she got pregnant by Melo and is expecting a baby. According to TMZ, "the other woman often works at a gentlemen's club in NYC, and we're told she's claiming to be 6 and a half months pregnant with Melo's child." The site also adds that the stripper wants Carmelo to take care of the medical expenses and costs around the pregnancy.

After the fall out, TMZ reports that La La Anthony has moved out of the home she kept with the basketball player and is living in NYC. "Our sources say the split is still amicable. They were together just this past weekend at their 10-year-old son Kiyan's basketball game," TMZ writes. The drama continues to unfold as details of the separation are scarce. Neither party has confirmed or denied the allegations and the reports have all been speculation up until this point, but La La was spotted without her wedding ring. The Anthony's had a reality show on VH1, now would be the perfect time to start rolling those cameras for Season 5 of "La La's Full Court Life."

Carmelo Anthony plays for the Knicks and recently has been rumored to be on the move to another team. Recently Slam Magazine ranked Melo as the No. 15 best player in the league, and the Knick's forward did not agree with the position and took to social media to voice his displeasure. He replied to Slam Magazine’s Instagram post by saying “slamonline all credibility lost in my eyes.”

Anthony is viewed by many as one of the best pure scorers in the league, but his ranking by Slam Magazine may be justified. Defense, passing, team chemistry and lack of post-season success can all be made as an argument to keep Anthony out of the top 10. Anthony has only made it out of the second round of the playoffs once in his entire 13-year career, and he isn’t exactly getting any younger. Let’s also not forget that there are a lot of other (Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving) players that have graced the game lately who will be featured in the top 10.
