La La is not letting her marital drama ruin her shine or her grind.
Over the weekend HipHollywood caught up with the Power actress and spokeswoman for McDonald’s Black and Positively Golden campaign where she revealed who’s helping her stay positive these days.
“I would definitely say my mom,” she explained. “She’s not in the business, but she has the best advice and … she’ll just send me these gems and help me pick myself up.”
La La’s trip to Essence Festival comes on the heels of news that she will move forward with the legal process to end her marriage to husband of nine years Carmelo Anthony.
On July 3 a representative for the star gave PEOPLE an exclusive statement, sharing that “As La La and Carmelo have been living apart for quite some time, La La is proceeding with legal discussions as the next step in their relationship.”
Less than a week ago her world was likely flipped upside down (yet again) when pictures of her husband Carmelo Anthony chillin’ with another woman on a yacht in France surfaced online.
The day the pics were snapped was her actual birthday, but La La didn’t let it stop her turn up as she celebrated with BFF Kim Kardashian in NYC.
“She just came to New York and we had dinner and had milkshakes and fried Oreos, we just really had a good time,” the mother of 11-year old son Kiyan revealed.
But the party didn’t stop there. A few days later she jetted off to Atlantic City for a b-day bash at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa before arriving in New Orleans with her girls.
While in the Big Easy for Essence Festival La La got the best birthday gift ever … winning 68K at the casino. On Sunday she revealed to her 8.9 million Instagram followers that she took a gamble and struck gold on the slot machine turning $200 into $68,000. “Thank you NOLA!” she wrote. “I love you!”
