Former Los Angeles Lakers star Carmelo Anthony has been through some challenging times in the past few years. After the end of his long-term marriage with Alani Nicole “La La” Anthony, the NBA veteran finds himself out of a contract this season. While Anthony continues to have a healthy co-parenting relationship with his ex-wife, the infidelity rumors involving Melo led La La to confess that she had no intention of getting married again. Now, three months after Carmelo Anthony’s cheating revelations, his former wife disclosed her biggest regret regarding her marriage with the former Lakers star.

Recently, La La Anthony made an appearance on the latest edition of The Shade Room alongside host and founder Angelica Nwandu.

In the recent iteration of the YouTube show The Shade Room, the host Angelica Nwandu questioned La La Anthony about what would she have done differently in love after everything that had happened in the past. In response, she stated, “I probably would have…I started off really young in my relationship. And maybe would have tried to took my time a bit more and learned more about love and partnership and marriage. And kind of not just jump right into such a heavy, heavy relationship so quickly.”
