During a recent interview on EXTRA with AJ Calloway, La La Anthony opened up about what’s been going on in her personal life while in the midst of a rumored divorce from her husband Carmelo Anthony!
Other than her now infamous “MET” gala instagram post, this is the first time that we’ve had a chance to hear ANYTHING from Mrs. Anthony since the news broke of her separation due to “alleged” infidelity!
Underneath her post, La La wrote ‘Unbreakable,’ and when asked what she meant by that La La stated:
“I wanted people to know that no matter what life throws at you, you got to be strong, you have to be fearless, things are gonna happen, life is amazing and guess what life sucks sometimes too, you have to be unbreakable, especially to have to go and walk that carpet alone. It’s not the easiest thing in the world.”
While she didn’t go into much detail, La La did say that she’s not only trying to shield her son from all of the media attention but also that she finds MOST of her strength in her mother.
When Kiyan recently asked why the paparazzi had been following him, La La stated:
“It’s getting hot outside and they’re trying to get summer fashions for the magazines, and he followed up and said, ‘Mom I’m wearing a sweat suit, that’s not summer fashion.’ I kind of try to make it fun for him so he doesn’t view it as a negative thing.”
Similar to the behavior we’ve recently been shown from little North West. [She hates the PAPS!]
On finding strength within her mother, La La points out:
“My mom has common sense…. I’m coming at her with all this complicated stuff, and she’ll just give me the most simple answer… and it always makes sense. I have a great support system of friends and family, but when it gets down to the nitty gritty, I’m like ‘Mom.'”
La La goes on to say that her Mother’s Day, spent with both Melo and Kiyan was fun, and that right now she’s just focused on her professional life.
