Anthony engaged to MTV Veejay

DENVER: Carmelo Anthony finally has some good news about his personal life: He’s engaged to MTV veejay La La Vasquez.

The Denver Nuggets star said recently that he made his proposal, accompanied by a nine-carat ring, on Christmas Day. They haven’t set a wedding date.

The engagement follows a series of unflattering off-the-court news about Anthony. He was charged with misdemeanor drug possession in October when he was found with marijuana. The charge was dropped after a friend said the marijuana was his. In November, three men were arrested on suspicion of trying to extort $3 m from Anthony with a videotape of a bar fight that broke out after someone spit a drink on Vasquez in New York in September. — AP
