Recently, Chris Rock was on The Wendy Williams Show, and while he was on, he made a pass at La La Anthony, which Carmelo clearly did not appreciate.
When Williams asked Rock if he was friends with the estranged couple, he said that he was “friendly” with them before expressing a desire for more, saying, “If La La is interested in going short next time… La La is bad, woo! Hey, they’re married; you’re not supposed to mess with other team’s players. But she’s hot though!”
Rock also expressed appreciation for an image of her from the Met Gala and asked, “La La will you? La La let’s go to ‘La La Land!'”
But Carmelo was reportedly furious over the advance, with one source close to him saying, “He sent a text to several of his friends asking ‘Did y’all see this bulls**t? This n**** on TV trying to scoop up my wife.'”
On the other hand, La La was reportedly flattered and even thought about posting the clip on her social media.
“She felt like Carmelo needs to realize that just because he didn’t respect his marriage vows doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t want her. The only reason she didn’t post the clip is because she knew it would fuel more headlines about their split,” the source said.
La La is reportedly making a concerted effort to stay out of the headlines for the sake of her son, with the source saying, “The toughest part of all of this really is making a decision that protects her son, as well as herself. It’s a very stressful time for her.”
