Sometimes when all is lost on the basketball court, you can only launch a desperate shot and pray that it goes in. Ironically, that scenario could describe Carmelo Anthony’s personal life right now.
The New York Knicks star has been staring at an impending split with his wife, La La Anthony due to allegations of cheating and neglect. But he’s not letting her go without a fight, and sources say he has sent a blast of love notes La La’s way, begging for forgiveness.
Sources have told TMZ that Carmelo has been sending his estranged wife text messages, telling her that he’s still in love and doesn’t want her to leave. The NBA All-Star is reportedly apologizing and asking for a change to wine and dine her on dates or even a couples’ getaway.
La La Anthony is an award-winning author and television personality who married Carmelo in 2010. The pair have been fighting off-and-on for years but remain on friendly terms for the benefit of their son, 10 year-old Kiyan Anthony.
