But something did happen between the two men. They did get into a fight after all.
“I wasn’t ever going to bring up the Honey Nut Cheerios incident again, but since I’m writing this book, I might as well set the record straight,” LaLa wrote in The Love Playbook. “Kevin Garnett in fact had never said that I tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
But what did he say? What was exchanged between the two that led to an altercation? No one may ever know.
“I did notice during the game Melo and Kevin were jawing a lot at each other, but that’s basketball,” LaLa reasoned. “I really didn’t think anything of it… I knew it had to be more than an in-game beef.”
But the whole Honey Nut Cheerios incident allegedly led to some royalties for the celebrities — giving the cereal attention.
“Not for nothing, but we ALL deserve a check or some free cereal 4all the publicity we’ve given Honey Nut Cheerios! LOL #cantbelieveeverything,” she tweeted back in 2013.
Nevertheless, they’re acting like two grown men again.
“…Melo and Kevin are cool today, and now it’s nothing but a faint memory.”
