LaLa Anthony and Honey Nut Cheerios have been a hot topic for the past few days now. And it all started after her husband New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony got heated with Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett during the Knicks-Celtics game on Monday night after Garnett allegedly told Carmelo that LaLa “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios”. Knowing the trash talking that often goes down on the basketball court and is used as a way to throw players off of their game, not many expected Carmelo to take Garnett’s taunting too seriously. But he indeed did as Carmelo Anthony went straight to the locker room tunnel and then made his way outside to the Celtics’ team bus to confront Kevin Garnett about what he said about LaLa. The recent incident that Carmelo was involved in resulted in a one-game suspension for him, Carmelo losing out on thousands of dollars. While some thought that KG was being too reckless with his comments about LaLa, there are those who think that Carmelo may have reacted in that way because of the rumored problems that he and LaLa were having in their marriage.
Rumors have suggested before that the couple’s marriage was on the rocks. And now it was been said that they are separated from each other, distance supposedly playing a huge role in the alleged separation. As for the Honey Nut Cheerios comment that Kevin Garnett was said to have made, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers claims that those words never came out of Kevin Garnett’s mouth. And according to LaLa, it was never said as she laughed off the whole thing off and joked about needing some money for all the free publicity this whole situation is giving the cereal:
Not for nothing,but we ALL deserve a check or some free cereal 4all the publicity we’ve given Honey Nut Cheerios! LOL #cantbelieveeverything

As LaLa took to time to address the alleged Honey Nut Cheerios comment, we find it interesting that she didn’t at all respond to the talk about her marriage being on the rocks.
