Carmelo Anthony and Lala Anthony‘s marriage went from bliss to finding out who Carmelo Anthony‘s preggers side chick really is.
Despite what TMZ previously reported, the Mia Angel Burks is not a New York stripper. The alleged side chick is a graduate from Northwestern University who works in an educational setting.
One of the Burks‘ ex-friends, Anthony Jacobs, gave insider info about what the deal is. He claims that the pair met last summer in Chicago at Nightclub called Room Seven.
They said that Melo and Mia wanted to handle the situation quietly, but one of Mia‘s friends leaked her name out to debunk the stripper story. And they’re saying that until Melo can get a paternity test done, he’s “taking care” of her.
This ex-friend said, “I’ve known that [they’ve dated] for months now.”
He added, “Carmelo wasn’t taking her serious to the point where she started to buy her own plane tickets to see him.”
Mia would fly on her own dime to visit Melo in NYC and the source doesn’t think Lala knew that the affair existed or that it was happening in New York either.
The ex-friend aka the source defended his friend saying that Mia never intended to harm Lala and Anthony‘s marriage.
The source said, “She was more giddy about it than anything. When this type of girls talk to hose kind of guys, I don’t think that’s the premise in the back of their head, ‘I’m gonna go destroy this happy home.’ It’s fun. It’s perks.”
The NYPost tried contacting the side chick and said that whoever answered her mom’s phone hung up on them.
And it’s no surprised that a rep for Melo declined to comment, but they said a source close to Melo insisted, “It’s not true.”
