Carmelo Anthony and his estranged wife, La La, are learning the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished.
Monday, the basketball star accompanied by La La traveled to the Bronx to meet the family of Lesandro Guzman-Feliz.
Several gang members killed Lesandro 15, also known as Junior, during a case of mistaken identity.
Via social media, La La shared a few pictures where she and the former New York Knicks player paid tribute to Lesandro at a memorial and visited the teen’s mother, Leandra Feliz. La La gave Leandra a jersey and white, high-top sneakers as a gift.
Via social media, La La, who was celebrating her birthday, said: “This is what I wanted to do for my birthday today. Thank you to the gram for connecting me to this family. I wanted to offer our love and support to Lesandro “Junior’s” family. His sister @__octobersveryown__ reached out and told me he loved Melo. So I asked Mel to go with me. I can’t imagine this type of pain and sadness. His family is strong and may God bless them forever. Seeing his family smile when we walked through that door is something I will never forget. Putting my arms around his mom is something I will never forget. Being in his room is something I will never forget. Pls, go to his sister in laws page @c0co__amor to donate to this family. (& before it starts…we did more than bring jerseys and sneakers) just do what YOU can even if it’s $1.. this family will be in my heart forever #justiceforjunior #justiceforjunior.”
She added: “I just landed from LA & came straight to the Bronx to say a prayer & pay my respects to Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz. I had chills in this spot. So much love out there tonight for him. This innocent boy and his family have been on my mind & my heart nonstop…it’s heartbreaking what happened to him. I’m posting this because I have a platform to spread love and light on his life because most of what u see on the gram is the horrific way he died. Praying for you Junior and your mom and your whole family. Would love to help his family in anyway I can. If anyone can connect me pls do. There is also a go fund me account. This hurts ???Rest in heaven & be at peace Junior ????? #justiceforjunior #justiceforjunior.”
Like her BFF, Kim Kardashian, La La is being dragged for reuniting with her estranged husband during a sad event and using it as a PR stunt on the gram.
