La La Anthony has been staying pretty mum about her separation from husband Carmelo Anthony. In recent weeks, the actress/host has been photographed without her wedding ring, but has not commented on the split — until now.
While on the red carpet for VH1’s Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms, Anthony told reporters that her family and her faith has helped her get through this tough time. “My family is my strength,” she said. “My family and God is my strength. That’s where I’ve always found my strength my entire life, so now would be no different.”
Anthony, who was co-hosting the event with Anthony Anderson, walked the carpet with her mom and 10-year-old son, Kiyan, whom she says she’ll be spending Mother’s Day with, sans her NBA star husband.
“I just want to be with my mom and my son, and just kind of keep it low key: watch movies, eat good food, listen to music,” she shared. “It’s all about just being around family for us.”
Carmelo, meanwhile, has been making attempts to get his estranged wife back. As previously reported, the New York Knicks player has been asking Anthony out on dates and even requested that the couple go on a vacation to work out their marital issues.
La La, it seems, isn’t interested. Instead, the 37-year-old is focused on being the best mother she can be, a lesson she learned from her own mom.
“My mom just always taught me to let people live, let people be who they are without restrictions, without limitations,” La La said. “I think that’s why I was able to go so far in my life and career — because my mom always supported me, even when I had the craziest ideas ever. So I definitely would do the same with him,and just support him in whatever he wants to do.”
