As details in Carmelo and La La Anthony’s separation (and possible divorce) continue to come out, new reports claim Carmelo has justified cheating on La La for years using one simple motto: “La La is married, I’m not,” reports Page Six. Except there’s one flaw in his daily mantra – by law, if La La is married, then so are you.

A source told the news outlet that’s been his tagline. “That’s how he would justify it. His attitude is that all professional athletes do it, and many of them do. La La has put up with a lot. She knew it was going on, but I guess this time she’s had enough.”

According to another source close to the couple, this isn’t the first time the Hollywood couple has split because of Melo’s marital indiscretions.  “They’ve been living separately for several months. They’ve broken up in the past, they split three years ago, gave it some time and then got back together. They’re hoping the same works again.”

Apparently Page Six has all the connects because a friend of La La’s told them “the cheating rumors have always been out there and the majority will talk about the rumors over and over. She’s waiting on his team to respond and decide how to handle the rumors.”

Melo and his reps continue to decline to comment on the NBA star’s current cheating scandal, but that hasn’t stopped La La from removing her wedding ring from her finger.
