Sources close to the couple tell TMZ that the actress and NBA superstar are now living separately. And La La moved out of the family home last week and has her own place in NYC now.

The couple are said to have had ups and downs in the past, but the current NBA season has been extremely stressful on the marriage for several months. Carmelo’s been plagued by trade talks … with the Knicks looking to move him to another team.

It is reported that the split is still amicable. They were together just this past weekend at their 10-year-old son Kiyan’s basketball game.

And neither of them is talking divorce yet. The estranged began dating in 2004, had a son in 2007 and got married in 2010.
