Although La La was busy making a name for herself on the big screen, she still found time to find the perfect man to give her his last name. On December 25, 2004, former Denver Nuggets star, Carmelo Anthony proposed to the MTV personality with a nine-carat diamond ring.
While it took what seems like a decade to set a date, the couple finally tied the knot Saturday, July 11, 2010 at Manhattanâ€™s Cipriani restaurant. La La hit Twitter first thing the next morning to let her friends, family and fans know just how great she was feeling. "Best night of my entire life. Thank u to all my family and friends who shared tonight with me. I love u. I'm on cloud 9 right now ... "
The now first lady of the NBA was certainly bringing in her own pay checks before she became Mrs. Anthony, but after saying those two precious words, â€œI do,â€ La La added an additional $60 million to her name, Carmeloâ€™s current net worth. Melo is currently bringing in $18.5 million in annual salary from the New York Knicks; a contract that rakes in $80 million over the next five years.
