Watch Melo fiancée LaLa Vasquez lose her shit at last Mavs game
What made LaLa Vasquez, the former MTV star who's Carmelo Anthony's fiancée, so unbelievably angry during the last Nuggets-Mavericks contest? She offers her explanation in the following statement:
LaLa Vazquez became distressed during a heated playoff game, after being verbally attacked by some opposing fans, who were using racial slurs, calling her child crude names and throwing ice cubes. She sent her son home early and was preparing to leave herself when she was physically pushed. Although shaken, she left the premises on her own will and is happy to be at home with her fiancé and child.
"Obviously the play-off games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable," states LaLa. "The fans were totally out of control. What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn't show the abuse that was taking place."
When asked about the incident during a post-game news conference, Anthony expressed confidence that Vasquez can take care of herself. Bet you'll agree after watching the clip above. Mark Cuban, you've met your match.
