Throughout their 11-year marriage, the NBA star has been accused of cheating on multiple occasions.

The couple first split in 2017 after cheating rumors surfaced. At the time, Carmelo was accused of allegedly impregnating another woman and La La was none too pleased.

The woman who made the claims reportedly worked at a gentleman’s club in NYC.

Then in 2019, more cheating speculation surfaced after Carmelo was reportedly spotted on a yacht with another woman in France.

He called the claims completely false!

Carmelo told TMZ Sports that the “other woman” was actually on the boat with her husband and family; however, no one else appeared to be on the boat at the time the paparazzi photos were captured.

He said the cheating rumors and speculation were affecting his family.

"The only reason I'm addressing this is because this is affecting my family now and you got me out here looking crazy. Usually I won't address this, but I had to address this,” Carmelo said.

During this time La La called their relationship “strained” and it remained on shaky ground.

The family of three quarantined together in 2020, but prior to the divorce filing they were separated.

They did this to ensure a smooth and easy transition for their teenage son, Kiyan.
