The New York Knicks baller Carmelo Anthony and his wife of seven years La La Anthony are now separated and the cause is reportedly a six-and-a-half month pregnant stripper of a club. The news became believable when the mother of one was spotted without a band on her ring finger. She seems to be flaunting her bare finger when she attended the AT&T and Tribeca Film Festival Luncheon. But no smile was seen on her lovely face which further fired speculations that her husband did cheat on her.

The trouble in the couple's marriage has long been a subject of speculations according to Daily News. Just one day after they announced their split, news of a pregnant woman asking Anthony to pay for her medical expenses and other baby costs when she gives birth emerged.

A source close to the couple informed that they have been fighting for about a year and the marriage has always been rocky. La La reportedly moved out of their conjugal home and moved into her apartment in New York. The couple shares a 10-year-old son named Kiyan who was born prior to their wedding.

Carmelo denied the reports about their marital woes. A source close to the couple denied that the Knicks man has gotten a stripper pregnant. The source further said that the separation was amicable and no other woman or child is involved.

Bleacher Report said that the 32-year-old basketball player's career with the Knicks might end as team president Phil Jackson said that Anthony might perform well with other teams. It was speculated that the disastrous season could have affected the already troubled marriage.

There will be huge changes in the personal life of the New York Knicks star as he becomes single again. He also has to join another team on the next NBA season. Carmelo Anthony and La La Anthony started dating in 2004 and had a child first before deciding to tie the knot.
