Despite reports of estrangement, it seems LaLa and Carmelo Anthony are not looking to split up anytime soon.
The couple was spotted together in London, as the NBA star has a game with his fellow New York Knicks teammates against the Detroit Pistons at the O2 Arena.

LaLa and Carmelo looked happy, as she flashed a smile and held his arm while showing off her wedding ring as the couple left Scott’s Restaurant following a dinner date.
They have been together for nine years and married for two-and-a-half.
Last week, it was made public that the couple has been living separately for months, and LaLa’s hard-partying ways may be to blame, in addition to her hectic schedule as a television personality, multiple news reports said. LaLa has a reality show on VH1 titled "LaLa's Full Court Life," which chronicles her juggling a married life and raising their five-year-old son, Kiyan.
The New York Post’s Page Six said that LaLa, who is best friends with Kim Kardashian, has been with her girlfriends at clubs and lounges across the country, which has made Carmelo angry.
“She’s been living in L.A. while Carmelo has been in New York," another source said. "LaLa used to go out to the games and wanted to be seen. ... Now she’s always off doing her own thing.”
But this past weekend, Anthony told reporters while at his new sneaker launch, “We’re good. We have our time. We have our down time. She works. I work. We make it work. Communication is the key.”
The couple became the center of a media frenzy after Carmelo became upset with Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett for allegedly making a comment about LaLa tasting like Honey Nut Cheerios.
It remains unclear what Garnett, 36, said to infuriate Carmelo, 28, but the Knicks forward said, "There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man. I felt like we crossed a line, but, like I said, we both have an understanding right now; we handled it the way we handled it."
