Was Kim Kardashian Responsible For Carmelo and La La Anthony’s Split?


Kim Kardashian has a lot of people upset at her right now — and she might be able to add Carmelo Anthony to the growing list.

No, not for bragging about losing a few pounds on the “flu diet.” Instead, a new report claims the reality star may have been involved in the NBA player’s split from wife La La Anthony!

As we now know, the spouses of seven years announced their separation this week, and though at first it seemed amicable, more details are emerging to shed light on the messy breakup.

Sources claim Carmelo’s infidelity was the ultimate cause, as the 32-year-old allegedly impregnated an NYC-based exotic dancer.

Though the couple hasn’t addressed these claims, La La stepped out in the Big Apple after the story broke, looking particularly upset — and without her 20-carat diamond engagement ring.

Of course, this is all new information to us, but one insider says this drama has been going on for a while now. In fact, even the basketball wife’s bestie Kim was in the loop.

A source tells RadarOnline.com the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star encouraged the Power star to leave her husband.

“La La knew about the cheating scandals and this pregnancy thing was the last straw,” the insider maintains. “Kim is her best friend and gave her the final push.”

Apparently, this wasn’t the first time the former TRL host was wronged by her longtime love.

The insider notes, “She has forgiven a lot but this time she had to leave.”

But not without a chat with Mrs. West first!

“When a marriage isn’t working you try to fix it. But when that doesn’t work, Kim told her it was time to leave,” the source states.

Sounds like the ladies have actually been in close touch throughout the ordeal, with Kim serving as her biggest shoulder to cry on.

“She’s been talking with Kim several times a day since the split,” the insider shares.


No matter the validity of this report, one thing is certain: La La needs some good friends right now.
