New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reportedly wants to salvage his marriage to La La Vazquez.
According to TMZ, Anthony has been texting Vazquez nonstop and is keen to make amends with the 37-year-old actress.
The entertainment website reported that Anthony, 32, wants another chance with Vazquez and has suggested the two go on dates and holiday together. He reportedly “insists La La’s the only woman for him and has no plans to be with anyone else.”
Anthony has apparently taken his plea for forgiveness to social media. After La La uploaded a photo of herself onto her Instagram page Wednesday (April 26), the baller — and 200,000 plus people — liked the picture.
Anthony and Vazquez have been married for nearly seven years when news broke that the two had separated. She moved out their family home and is said to be living in her own apartment in New York City. Vazquez was granted primary custody of their 10-year-old son Kiyan.
According to several news outlets, Anthony impregnated a 24-year-old Chicago woman. The two reportedly met at a party in Chicago last summer, and began a relationship shortly after, according to Anthony Jacobs, a friend of the woman.
“[She] met Carmelo at Room Seven, a club in Chicago when he was here for the NBA draft doing press,” Anthony Jacobs told Chicago’s WGCI radio station. “She’s not a stripper… she works in education setting up programs. I’ve known that [they’ve dated] for some months now.”
“Melo’s tagline was, ‘She’s married, I’m not.’ That’s how he would justify it. His attitude is that all professional athletes do it, and many of them do. La La has put up with a lot. She knew it was going on, but I guess this time she’s had enough.”
Though there is no word of a divorce, Vazquez has recently been photographed without her wedding ring.
