LeBron booed outside Anthony's wedding

NBA star Carmelo Anthony tied the knot with actress LaLa Vazquez in New York Saturday — but the event was almost upstaged by guest LeBron James.

James was greeted by a round of loud boos from angry New Yorkers outside the wedding in Cipriani 42nd Street when he arrived with his girlfriend Savannah Brinson, reported.

The basketball player star has attracted plenty of criticism since his televised announcement Thursday to join the Miami Heat.

The self-proclaimed "King James" spurned the New York Knicks, as well as the Chicago Bulls and most bitterly his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers in the high-profile television spectacle.


James received a scathing letter from Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert who accused the star of quitting on the team in last year's playoffs.

Gilbert called him heartless, callous and narcissistic after James did not talk personally to the owner before making his decision.

James’ was undoubtedly the star at Anthony’s wedding despite other high-profile guests including Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams, Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Ludacris.

Denver Nuggets player Anthony, 26, wed “You Got Served” star Vazquez, 31, after a five-and-a-half-year engagement. They have a three-year-old son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony.
