Even though we often see them as superhumans with a dream-like life, NBA players are just like everybody else. They go through more or less the same personal issues as the rest of us. If you don't take our word for it, just ask Los Angeles Lakers forward Carmelo Anthony.
The NBA legend is going through a bit of a rough patch lately, as his lifelong wife La La just filed for divorce amid several cheating scandals. And, even though Melo has plenty of cash to spare in the breakup, he could lose a big chunk of his $140 million net worth.
According to multiple reports, the former New York Knicks star cheated on La La with a dancer and fathered one of her sons. The story, true or not, was what eventually led the couple to call it quits.
Carmelo Anthony Could Lose A Big Portion Of His $160 Million Net Worth
"Anthony’s divorce with La La won’t come easy, however. As is the case with such proceedings, they aren’t ever done without a significant amount of money being involved usually. All of it will come down to the prenups that La La and Carmelo have agreed upon as well as the actions of the Lakers star. If it can be proved that Melo was involved in acts of infedility, then La La could stand to gain a significant of money from her ex-husband," reported Sportsrush.
"A dancer at an NYC gentlemen's club allegedly believes Melo is the father of her unborn child, according to TMZ, and is asking the basketballer to fork over cash for medical expenses and the cost of raising a child. Depending on how the prenup was written, La La could argue what she deserves if it is determined that Melo cheated,"added New York Daily News.
Needless to say, it's not like Melo will sleep on the couch and struggle to find a place to crash in the meantime. But even for those as wealthy as Carmelo Anthony, losing half of your money could be a massive blow.
