And sources tell the site that La La has been separated from Carmelo for a while now, but remain friends and everything about the divorce ‘is amicable.’  

The pair share a 14-year-old son named Kiyan, who they are making a priority as they work to make a smooth transition from estranged spouses to coparents. 

In 2017, the former couple broke up amid rumors he cheated on her, but within a year they had already rekindled their relationship. 

By mid-2019, the exes’ relationship was already ‘strained’ when they were rocked by ‘more cheating speculation’ as they pushed through on ‘shaky ground’ under quarantine.

In April 2021, she spent some quality time with her pal Kim Kardashian, who filed for divorce from her husband Kanye West. 

The friends even rocked matching two-pieces as they enjoyed a girls trip to Palm Springs.

La La and Carmelo were engaged for six years when they finally exchanged vows at Cipriani 42nd Street in 2010.

Fans were able to tune into the wedding as it was filmed for her show La La’s Full Court Wedding. 

The couple have endured their fair share of trying times since saying ‘I do’, and in 2018 they split up amid rumors Carmelo fathered a child with 24-year-old Mia Angel Burks.

While they reconciled, it wasn’t long until Carmelo found himself in hot water again when he was was photographed with another woman on a yacht in 2019, sparking cheating rumors.

Making matters even worse, the images were released on La La’s birthday. 

While Carmelo initially denied the cheating speculation and claimed the woman he was photographed with was married and that they on a business trip with her husband, it was since reported by numerous gossip websites that the woman was not married. 

In May 2019, prior to the cheating speculation, La La spoke to Us Weekly about her marriage and how it continues to have its difficulties.

‘Marriage is hard,’ she confessed. ‘I tell everybody that, and it’s one day at a time, and that’s what we’re doing. Just trying to take it one day at a time.’

However, the estranged couple were quarantining together with family at the start of the pandemic, which La La described as ‘smooth sailing.’ 

‘To see my son just so happy, even in the midst of what’s going on in the world, to me, is what’s important and what matters to me,’ she told Access Hollywood in April 2020.
