After La La Anthony’s recent outing with actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, the television personality faced a significant wave of backlash, because a lot of people condemned her for cheating on her husband, Carmelo Anthony, in broad daylight with the Aquaman star.
The two celebrities were spotted going out for breakfast together on Tuesday in Tribeca, and after a photograph of them was uploaded on the Internet, all social media platforms were quickly filled with comments talking about the end of the relationship between Carmelo and La La Anthony.

Our good sis La La Anthony was spotted leaving breakfast with chocolate actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II yesterday morning and while it instantly sparked rumors of dating, a source states that the duo are JUST FRIENDS, and confirms that La La and Carmelo are back together: ——————————- "That’s a mutual friend and Melo and La are doing just fine. They are back together. They are just friends, they have been working out together and Yahya has been giving her tips on acting. People shouldn’t be quick to jump to conclusions — especially if she’s seen leaving a restaurant." ——————————- A native of New Orleans, Yahya recieved a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Yale School of Drama and though I love my good sis, she can use a few good lessons. The 33-year-old Yahya portrayed the Black Manta in “Aquaman” and currently stars as Cal Abar in HBO’s “Watchmen,” where he showed his pee pee. The source continues: ——————————– La La should take the opportunity however, to enjoy herself since Carmelo not only cheated on her, but also had a daughter named Genesis…who was not a part of their family portrait…but I digress. ☕️☕️💅#teonnyspears #somelikeithaute #celebritynews #celebrities #carmeloanthony #lalaanthony #lala #louisianablogger #theanthonys #portlandtrailblazers #portland #theportlandtrailblazers #batonrouge #neworleans #newyork #houston #atlanta #chicago #miaburks #yahyaabdulmateenII #candyman #calabar #watchement #blackmanta #aquaman
However, the swirling rumors that the 38-year-old reality TV star was being unfaithful to her husband of nearly ten years were quickly addressed by a mutual friend of the celebrity couple, who claimed that things were perfectly beautiful between La La and Carmelo.
Yahya, who gained recognition for his portrayal of Cadillac in The Get Down, the Black Manta in Aquaman, and his current role as Cal Abar in Watchmen, has been helping La La with her acting since he holds a Master’s degree from the Yale School of Drama.
A source said: “That’s a mutual friend, and Melo and La are doing just fine. They are back together. They are just friends, they have been working out together, and Yahya has been giving her tips on acting. People shouldn’t be quick to jump to conclusions — especially if she’s seen leaving a restaurant.”
Even though Carmelo and his wife had a rocky relationship and during the summer, it was believed that the two of them might get divorced soon because of Melo’s cheating scandal. They eventually got back together.
Meanwhile, from La La’s Instagram page, it could be seen that she and her spouse spent the Christmas holidays together with their 12-year-old son, Kiyan.
The actress shared a picture of the family, in which the trio wore matching shirts in white and red stripes, and everyone looked happy and relaxed.
One fan had this reaction: “As she should be dating!! Sis needs some new. He looks, sexy girl …. have fun it’s your time smh women STOP SETTLING. He’s so beautiful! ”
Another backer wrote: “I just saw Melo and Lala this wild summer. She needs a new man seriously that whole “we tryna be a family for the kids” is dead. She needs a man that will cherish her soul.”
A critic said: “She’s a married woman smh if she wants another man she should get a divorce, stop letting others’ behavior dictate how you behave ladies, it’s low and vulgar!”
This person wrote: “I’m not sure who’s promoting this dint be apart of the child’s life but to each there own but me as a woman mother wife I would make it possible by all means to be active if not me my husband for sure!!! Idk!!!!especially if I’ve been cheated on lied too etc. I probably would’ve started also dating by now, but she’s to showboat for that it’s cheaper to keep her.”
La La is trying to take her acting career to the next vel.
