This week Lala Anthony celebrated her birthday with friends and family while Carmelo Anthony was in foreign waters. On that same day, photos of the NBA baller relaxing on a boat with another woman set the internet abuzz and added even more weight to the couple’s already strained marriage.
The mystery woman that was in a bathing suit with the basketball player on a yacht in the south of France has been identified as 28-year-old model Sara Smiri. According to Carmelo, she is happily married to a man who keeps a low profile that he claims was also on the boat.
Judging solely on the photos that were released, the general public does not believe Carmelo was telling the truth. It became even clearer that there was trouble in their already rocky relationship with Lala posted and deleted a photo that showed a picture of a knife through the heart.
A source told US Weekly: ‘Things between La La and Carmelo are strained. It has been difficult for La La to move past the infidelities, the child out of wedlock … Those actions rocked La La to her core.’
The baby out of wedlock was conceived with model Mia Burks who also added her opinion to the conversation when she uploaded an Instagram Story that read: ‘N***** out here explaining how they’re laid up on a boat with another man’s wife but can’t explain why they can’t spend time with their daughter. #explainthat #p****overdna #tmzaints***.
As you can imagine, it’s hard for the Power actress to give up on her family when they’ve been through so much already. An insider spilled on her recent efforts to put herself first.
‘[She is] seeking therapy on her own to work through her trust issues. She [is going] to gain a better understanding of her own feelings and what is realistically possible for their family as they move forward.’
Do you think the couple will stick together?
