The Power star, 36, won big on the slot machines and was up $68,000 (£54,000) after deciding to try her luck in the early hours of Sunday morning. Yup, she decided at 4am to play with $200 (£160) and won not once, but twice, as she bagged a cash prize for just over $53,000 (£42,340) and another of $10,000 (£7,990).
Erm, we’re lucky if we win £2 on a scratch card.
La La (real name Alani Nicole Anthony) revealed her big win on Instagram, telling fans: ‘So… it all started when I put $200 in a slot machine in NOLA at 4am this morning.’ What followed was a video of La La pretty much losing her cool after bagging her first huge jackpot. Can you imagine? Screaming, La La is heard saying: ‘I can’t believe it, what is going on?’ before then revealing that the machine didn’t stop there and bumped up her total even more. What’s going on is that you’re $68,000 richer La La, and we’re not jealous at all.
Her win will no doubt come as a very welcome distraction for La La who reportedly chop from husband Carmelo Anthony recently for the second timeThe couple initially tied the knot in 2010 and chop seven years later in 2017.
They had reconciled in 2018, but it seems things haven’t worked out for the pair. They are parents to 12-year-old son Kiyan, with a rep for basketball star Carmelo saying the pair ‘will remain loving and committed parents to their son’. Sources have told People that La La is now proceeding with legal discussions over their chop, after Carmelo was pictured on a yacht with another woman.
They claimed: ‘As La La and Carmelo have been living apart for quite some time, La La is proceeding with legal discussions as the next step in their relationship.’ Carmelo has denied any suggestion of him being unfaithful and declared his love for La La while wishing her a happy birthday at the end of June. He wrote: ‘Some of the most beautiful things worth having in your life come wrapped in a crown. ‘Your heart is full of love and affection. Your hands are always caring. I am lucky to have you as my wife. HAPPY BORN DAY QUEEN I LOVE YOU @lala.’
