"She's not a stripper, she works in education."
Carmelo and La La Anthony are reportedly headed for a divorce and today a Chicago man has stepped forward with details about the woman that Melo allegedly got pregnant.
Melo's mistress is reportedly 24-year old Mia Angel Burks, who graduated from Northwestern University with a master’s degree in health communication last year, and she's been seeing the Knicks All-Star for quite some time.
The two allegedly met last Summer in Chicago.
According to Page Six, Anthony Jacobs, a former friend of Mia's, said she's not a stripper and that her and Melo have been dating for months now.
“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 says he roomed with Burks for a while but had a falling out over a rent dispute. He alleges he found out about her pregnancy with Melo through a mutual friend.
