At the time, she and Carmelo were attending the launch for the skincare line Lumiere de Vie Hommes in New York City, where they were seen kissing and acting playful with each other. There’s also a photo of the “Power” actress sitting on Carmelo’s lap.
“We’re good. I mean, we’ve been together for a really long time, so we’re figuring out how to make it work for what is best for Kiyan and what is best for us,” said La La, mentioning the 11-year-old son she has with Carmelo. “We’re having fun. I have my husband here, my friends here, it’s a really exciting time.”
The on and off couple married in 2010 and separated last April amid swirling rumors of Melo being unfaithful. According to a Page Six source, Melo got a Chicago woman named Mia Angel Burks pregnant, but that report hasn’t been substantiated.
This isn’t the first time that La La talked about a possible reconciliation between herself and Melo. Last year during an interview with Wendy Williams, she said their rough patch may just be a difficult season and nothing more.
“Marriages are tough, and you know that, we all know that,” La La explained. “It’s filled with ups and downs. We are just going through a time right now … I don’t know what the future holds.”
“I just know that we are doing an incredible job being parents to our son,” she added. “We are the best of friends. I’ve been with Melo since he was 19 years old. You’re not with someone that long and it just goes out the window. I love him with all of my heart, and we are the best of friends.”
