The separation of Carmelo and La La Anthony has graced headlines all this week and the talk of an alleged “side baby” points to a looming divorce.
With assets such as those possessed by the Anthonys, the D word brings up the not so pleasant topic of prenuptial agreements.
Prior to their 2010 marriage, La La and Carmelo signed a prenup which will serve as a guide to how their $200 million plus fortune will be split up.
Sources connected to the couple tell us they signed a prenup before getting hitched in 2010. We’re told the prenup benefits Carmelo way more than La La, and for obvious reasons. He in the middle of a $124 million contract with the Knicks and has earned north of $200 in his career.
Melo has a lot more in the money dept. He’s been a top brand ambassador to the Jordan brand and Foot Locker.
As for La La … she was making money as an MTV VJ when they met and has continued to work through the marriage as an actress, model and producer, but obviously she’s made way less than him.
All that said, prenups are not necessarily airtight and are frequently challenged by the person who ends up with the short end of the stick. These challenges almost always result in a settlement where the person with the money antes up more than required under the written agreement.
It is unknown whether the agreement contained a cheating clause which is not uncommon. If so, that could make things a little more murky for Carmelo; and perhaps La La as well since she had her own little alleged cheating scandal with rapper Maino.
Flip the pages for the young lady Melo is accused of risking it all for.
