On Tuesday, the Power actress went on The Wendy Williams Show where she spilled the tea about her relationship with the NBA star. In case you forgot, the two split in April after seven years of marriage.
Although they have been estranged for a couple of months, the former MTV VJ isn’t going to divorce the athlete “right now”! She told Miz Williams:
“Not right now… You know marriages are tough, and you know that. We all know that. It’s filled with ups and downs. We are just going through a time right now… Him and I are the best of friends and our No. 1 commitment is to our son Kiyan, and we have to set an example for Kiyan and that’s what’s most important to me.”
On Sunday, Carmelo celebrated his former flame’s 38th birthday with a touching Instagram post where he called her his “earth.” When Wendy remarked, “He seems to want you back,” La La replied, “Why wouldn’t he?”
“Listen, If I could predict the future we would all be multimillionaires… I don’t know what the future holds. I just know that we are doing an incredible job again being parents to our son. We are the best of friends. I’ve been with Melo since he was 19 years old. You’re not with somebody that long, and it just goes out the window. I love him with all my heart, and we are the best of friends.”
Most importantly, the TV personality is focusing on herself by living a healthy, fit lifestyle.
“I’m trying to get myself in order… I’m in the gym every day. I’m eating right. I’m taking out all the bad stuff in my life and just really dating and focusing on myself, which is something women need to do more often, put ourselves first.”
