Days after it was revealed that La La Anthony has split from her husband Carmelo Anthony, it has been reported that she has gained primary custody of their son.
According to TMZ, the estranged couple have agreed that 10-year-old Kiyan will live with his mother in New York City, spending ‘a couple of days a week’ with Carmelo.
The website reports that the two are intent on ensuring that their offspring remains in a stable environment with both his parents in his life as they part ways.

However, while TMZ has stated that the temporary custody agreement was achieved amicably without court intervention, La La and Carmelo ‘are absolutely getting divorced, even though legal docs haven’t been filed yet’.
The former couple announced their separation earlier this month, amid claims that basketball player Carmelo, 32, slept with a New York-based dancer who now claims to be six and half months pregnant with his child.
But TMZ has reported that the prenuptial agreement he and La La, 37, reportedly signed prior to marrying in 2010 may still work in his favour should they push ahead with their divorce, due to the sportsman’s considerable earning power.

Carmelo is understood to be midway through a lucrative $124 million contract with the New York Knicks, while additional income is generated through his work as a brand ambassador for Nike Air Jordan and global footwear chain Foot Locker.
Conversely La La – a former MTV presenter – has made her own money through a variety of hosting and acting jobs, amongst them reality show For The Love Of Ray J and US dramas Power and Law And Order: Special Victims Unit.
Separate business endeavours, such as the publication of autobiography The Love Playbook in 2014 – a number 1 on the Barnes & Noble bestseller list – and a producer’s credit on Broadway show Eclipsed in 2016 have also boosted her coffers.

However, should La La receive less than expected from the reported agreement, TMZ reports she has grounds to challenge – a move that could result in a settlement from the basketball star.
The website previously reported that Carmeo is alleged to have slept with a dancer based at a gentlemen’s club in New York, with ‘multiple sources’ claiming the dancer is pregnant and expects him to pay for her medical expenses and other costs.
MailOnline has contacted Carmelo’s representatives for further comment.

A source told TMZ on Monday that the couple, who have 10-year-old son Kiyan, are now ‘living separately’.
‘La La moved out of the family home last week and has her own place in NYC now,’ the source said.
The split was put down to Carmelo being stressed over the possibility of being traded by the New York Knicks.

Speaking about her marriage last year, La La – who is close friends with Kim Kardashian – told Access Hollywood they had their ‘up and downs’.
She said: ‘If anyone says in 10 years you don’t go through ups and downs, they’re lying to you. We’re in a real relationship.
‘We have our ups and we have our downs, but we definitely work through them, and we’re great right now.’
The couple began dating in 2004 and got married in 2010, with the ceremony shown on their reality series La La’s Full Court Wedding.
