According to Page Six, the woman Carmelo knocked up is actually not a dancer but a master’s degree holder who works in education.
The publication writes:
Mia Angel Burks, who graduated from Northwestern University with a master’s degree in health communication last year, started seeing the 10-time All-Star in Chicago last summer, the source said.
It’s unclear when she got pregnant, but Melo, who is splitting from his wife, La La, believes the baby is his and is “taking care” of Burks, 24, until a paternity test can be performed, according to the source.
The pair planned to deal with the baby quietly — but one of Burks’ former pals claims to have leaked her name to a blog to set the record straight after false reports emerged that Melo had gotten a stripper pregnant.
That ex-friend, Anthony Jacobs, told Chicago radio station WGCI-FM this week that Melo and Burks fell for each other at a nightclub in the Windy City.
“Mia met Carmelo at Room Seven, a club in Chicago, when he was here for the NBA draft doing press,” he told “Chicago Morning Takeover.” “She’s not a stripper … she works in education setting up programs.”
“I’ve known that [they’ve dated] for some months now,” he added.
Jacobs alleged that Burks would fly to New York to see Anthony on her own dime — and said La La likely didn’t know a thing about it.
“Carmelo wasn’t taking her serious to the point where she started to buy her own plane tickets to go see him,” he said.
Jacobs added that he heard about Burks’ pregnancy through mutual friends, and said she never intended to harm Anthony’s marriage.
So she’s a college educated thot. Makes sense.
I don’t understand why any woman would be ok with being a side chick but ok.
Wait what? She didn’t mean to harm the marriage? Thots these days smh. These women who’s chase ballers are so calculated. An educated hoe who was tired of being a teacher ended up in a club when NBA players would be there and slept with the married one with no intentions of breaking up the marriage. Tuh. Fuxk her! And all who are like her. Flying to New York in her OWN dime to sleep with a married man. Well she should use her OWN dimeto take care of her baby and kept her mouth shut with her I have no intention of dying a marriage having arse. Lala should sue the hell out this hoe fir sleeping with her husband.
Sounds like she’s thirsty and has low self esteem.
A thot with a Masters is still a college-educated thot…..semantics!
