La La Anthony and her husband Carmelo Anthony have experienced ups and downs in their marriage. However, these things only made their relationship stronger. In 2004, there was an incident which could have destroyed Carmelo career.
According to reports, La La ex-fiancé and Carmelo had a fight in a certain club. Some people adored him for defending his woman while others fear that he might lose his endorsement opportunities. Later on, when Carmelo was interviewed he said that “he only did what any man would have done for their woman.”
Now, despite the fact that the couple is having a strong relationship, La La still recalls the abuse from her ex. During her interview at Sway In The Morning to promote her new book, she said:
“You know and it was my first love and I felt like he was controlling me because he loved me and that’s how he’s showing me that he loved me. And it was later on that I realized that was completely wrong and that’s a message I want to get out to young women out there. That’s not love.”
She also chatted about the worst moments in this abuse, she revealed:
“Throwing plates of food at me. Breaking glasses. Always being really angry and upset. I was like, ‘This can’t be love.’ Love shouldn’t feel like this. I would tell myself that and continue to stay. It could be the smallest thing–that could be your breaking point. And I remember calling my dad like, ‘Dad, I need you to come and get me.’ I hadn’t even talked to my dad because I had isolated anyone who wasn’t a fan of the relationship. Anyone that didn’t say anything good, I didn’t want to talk to them. I said, ‘Dad, you got to come get me.’ Literally, my dad just got in the car and drove up there to come pick me up. It’s a defining moment to my life that I’ll never forget.”
