Carmelo Anthony may just be in for a few stern words later today.

The New York Knicks star was caught ogling at pop princess Rihanna in a picture posted on Instagram earlier today. 

The snap was uploaded on to the picture sharing social media site earlier today by one 'juneambrose' who was talking about being at the same party as Riri, most likely the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday.

What she didn't bargain for however was just how much the picture would explode on places like Twitter, where members obviously spotted Melo with his eyes clearly fixed on the Barbados R&B star. 

The photo was deleted off her account and re-uploaded again, this time with the NBA All-Star blurred out thanks to some nifty filter work.

This only becomes a story though when you remember that Anthony has a wife; Alani 'La La' Anthony, to whom he has been with for over a decade. That's where those few stern words may well be emanating from.

I think @Wheres_My_Hat summed the photo up best, tweeting "Melo was visioning pure lust and filth in that pic w/ him and rihanna"
