La La Anthony and Carmelo Anthony support their son at his basketball game amid their divorce

La La Anthony and her soon-to-be ex-husband Carmelo Anthony didn’t let their differences get to them when they supported their son at a basketball game on Saturday evening.

The 41-year-old friend of Kim Kardashian and the 37-year-old Portland Trail Blazers power forward were seen near each other during their 14-year-old son Kiyan’s game in Miami.

Despite their ongoing divorce proceedings, the two appeared to be totally friendly with each other throughout the game.

La La took a seat courtside during part of the game while looking casual in a low-cut beige tank top and matching sweatpants.

She had her long brunette tresses covered with a white bucket hat, and she wore large hoop earrings that framed her face. 

The former MTV VJ carried a beige handbag that fit in perfectly with her ensemble, and she looked cool in matching Nike sneakers.

Carmelo looked more casual for the game in a white Juneteenth T-shirt, commemorating the date in 1866 when slaves in Texas were finally informed that they had been freed, two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and more than a year after the Civil War had officially ended.

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to make the date a federal holiday this week, and the Senate unanimously joined it, though 14 Republican representatives voted against the bill.

Carmelo also wore orange-and-white graphic shorts and a backwards black baseball cap, plus white, gray and orange Air Jordans.

The former couple seemed totally absorbed in the game, as they were both standing to watch by the end.  

On Thursday, TMZ reported that the basketball wife had filed divorce documents earlier in the day in New York, after being involved with the NBA player for 16 years.

La La — who found fame as an MTV VJ on Total Request Live in the early 2000s — was recently seen spending time with her good friend Kim Kardashian in balmy Palm Springs.

Sources told the site that La La had been separated from Carmelo for some time, but they remain friends and everything about the divorce ‘is amicable.’  

The pair share their teen son Kiyan, whom they are making a priority as they try to make a smooth transition from estranged spouses to coparents. 

In 2017, the former couple broke up amid rumors that the basketball player had cheated on her, but within a year they had already rekindled their relationship. 

By mid-2019, the exes’ relationship was already ‘strained’ when they were rocked by ‘more cheating speculation’ as they pushed through on ‘shaky ground’ under quarantine.

In April 2021, she spent some quality time with her pal Kim Kardashian, who had filed for divorce from her husband Kanye West. 

The friends even rocked matching two-pieces as they enjoyed a girls trip to Palm Springs.

La La and Carmelo were engaged for six years when they finally exchanged vows at Cipriani 42nd Street in 2010.

Fans were able to tune into the wedding as it was filmed for her show La La’s Full Court Wedding. 

The couple have endured their fair share of trying times since saying ‘I do’, and in 2018 they split up amid rumors Carmelo fathered a child with 24-year-old Mia Angel Burks.

While they reconciled, it wasn’t long until Carmelo found himself in hot water again when he was was photographed with another woman on a yacht in 2019, sparking cheating rumors.

Making matters even worse, the images were released on La La’s birthday. 

While Carmelo initially denied the cheating speculation and claimed the woman he was photographed with was married and that they on a business trip with her husband, it was since reported by numerous gossip websites that the woman was not married. 

In May 2019, prior to the cheating speculation, La La spoke to Us Weekly about her marriage and its difficulties.

‘Marriage is hard,’ she confessed. ‘I tell everybody that, and it’s one day at a time, and that’s what we’re doing. Just trying to take it one day at a time.’

However, the estranged couple were quarantining together with family at the start of the pandemic, which La La described as ‘smooth sailing.’ 

‘To see my son just so happy, even in the midst of what’s going on in the world, to me, is what’s important and what matters to me,’ she told Access Hollywood in April 2020.
