Lala Anthony Surprises Slain Bronx Teen’s Older Sister With Graduation Party
Last week, Lala Anthony spent her birthday in the BX visiting Lesandro “Junior’s” Family. Through a simple Instagram connection, her and Melo were able to connect with the slain teen’s family to do all they could to help keep them strong. Since then, it appears Lala has made some forever friends.
After hearing the news that Junior’s older sister, Genesis, couldn’t make it to her high school graduation due to the fatal stabbing of her younger brother. Lala once again extended out a hand to the family – this time to rightfully celebrate Genesis’ accomplishments.
During Sunday (July 1) night’s celebration, a happy Genesis was surrounded by genuine support and love. Having met the actress only a week prior, the gesture was completely heartwarming.
In an IG post by Lala, the Brooklyn native expressed just how much love she has for the Genesis and the rest of her family.
“It’s a celebration!!!

After the celebration, Genesis also posted on her Instagram account to thank Lala for everything she’s done.
“Thank you so much @lala for giving me a genuine smile throughout these hard times . I’m so glad that I have real friends by my side that I can count on for anything .
