Last week, La La Anthony opened up about her personal life in a sit-down interview for The Hollywood Reporter’s series “Emerging Hollywood” hosted by Charlamagne Tha God.
The topics, among others, included La La’s pending divorce with Los Angeles Lakers forward Carmelo Anthony, co-parenting and her hopes for love in the future. Regarding love, La La expressed that she’s uncertain if she will find an eligible suitor — given the reported infidelities that occurred in her last relationship with Carmelo — despite having options.
On May 7, it appeared La La took a leap of faith after being spotted with her “BMF” co-star Da’Vinchi. Although the pair’s relationship status is unclear, La La and Da’Vinchi were seen holding hands as they hung out at an undisclosed location.
As photos of the rumored couple began circulating online, including on social media blog site The Neighborhood Talk, many praised the 39-year-old for perhaps getting back out there in the dating field.
“As she should.”
“How La La got her groove back!”
“I’m here for it because that man is fine.”
“Nah he is mad fine ok let her have a lil happiness she can’t have fun melo was having fun.”
“She deserves every bit of happiness. After everything she has been through. I hope he treats her like the queen she is.”
Among the positive responses, others defended La La after she received some flak for allegedly dating Da’Vinchi because he is 13 years younger than her.
One person wrote about the double standards women face in society when it comes to dating a younger man, “Why y’all so worried about women dating men younger than them if she was man it would be normal stfu.”
Another said, “Why does age matter though. They both grown as f–k.”
La La and Da’Vinchi have yet to respond to the dating claims.
