Is there a new romance brewing between Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley and Larsa Pippen, the ex-wife of former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen?
A recent photo of the duo that surfaced on November 23 is raising a lot of questions while Beasley’s wife Instagram model Montana Yao has suggested knowing nothing of this growing affair. In the photo snapped in Miami, Beasley and Pippen can be seen holding hands while wearing masks and walking out in public; Pippen was sporting a plunging black bodysuit and Beasley was seen in a vibrant color-blocked orange and yellow sweatsuit.
Beasley's wife Yao has taken to Instagram to express how shocked she was by the news. She was apparently blindsided and only got to know about the budding romance through the photos, a report said. Her Instagram story read, “I’ve always and will forever remain true to who I am and GOD has never let me down. The truth always comes out one way or another.”
Followed by another story where she said, “Appreciate all the love y’all for real.” The 23-year-old Yao, who shares a child with Beasley, has also posted a picture of their daughter with the caption “I got you” and “you got me.” Her latest story reads, "Wow.. I don't even know this man... this is wild y'all I'm seeing it for the first time just like y'all."
A report also revealed that Yao expected Beasley to be home in Minnesota for his 24th birthday on November 26 but she was taken aback when Beasley didn’t make it back. After that, Yao came across the photos of Beasley and 46-year-old Pippen.
Beasley and Yao are having a rather difficult year. The 24-year-old NBA star was charged with felony threats for pulling out an assault rifle on a family that was looking for homes in the neighborhood on October 30, prosecutors had said. He was charged with felony threats of violence and fifth-degree drug possession.
At the same time, Montana Yao, his counterpart also faced charges for drug count when nearly two pounds of pot was found at the couple’s Plymouth home on September 26, a police report said. According to the police report, they responded to two separate 911 calls and found Beasley to be pointing the firearm at a family telling them to get off his property.
The victims got back onto the road and saw Beasley pointing the rifle at them as they drove off. The police obtained a search warrant to locate the rifle, and upon entering the residence, also began searching for marijuana given the overwhelming odor coming from inside. While conducting the search, officers found three firearms, one matching the description of the assault rifle, the complaint stated.
They also discovered more than 835 grams of marijuana in the basement living room and main floor office. The Basketball player has signed a contract with Timberwolves in a four-year deal worth $60 million. He averaged 20.7 points in 14 games with the Timberwolves before the 19-20 sports season was halted in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Beasley, however, started the 2019-2020 session with Denver Nuggets. Beasley hasn’t responded to the present situation yet.
