The day the boat spotting happened was La La’s 36th birthday so, minus Carmelo, she celebrated in New York City with Kim Kardashian. However, the celebrating wasn’t limited to NYC. They also partied in Atlantic City.
La La and her traveling entourage set up camp at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. According to People, the group enjoyed Japanese fare at Izakaya, played blackjack at Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge, stopped by Moneyline Book & Bar and danced the night away at Premier nightclub. She sparkled in an off-the-shoulder, glittery Peter Dundas dress and Manolo Blahnik heels.
Amid all the partying and fun times, a reporter for People asked her for a comment without directly asking where was Carmelo.
“My whole family is here. My cousins, my best friends. My uncle is here, my brother is here. Atlantic City is just such an easy drive from New York, so everyone was able to just hop in the car,” she responded to People. “I love gambling, I love partying, great restaurants. … You have it all right here in the hotel, and you never have to leave.”
So what about her actual B-Day, June 25? What happened? Who showed her love? She gave credit to her son Kiyan for his efforts to make his mama happy.
“He gave me the nicest card, he hung out with me, balloons, flowers. He’s really a great kid, and we ended up having a really good day as well.”
She was also asked what Carmelo was able to do for her on her birthday, even though he wasn’t there in person. Her response was flat compared to what she said about her son:
“He’s overseas at Fashion Week,” she said. “He sent me some nice gifts and posted something really nice, so I was appreciative.”
And that’s that.
