Eight years of marriage ended with three kids and an expensive divorce. Not what Malaysia Pargo and Jannero Pargo had in mind when they first met at a party in Los Angeles and later married at California's The Wattles Mansion, in 2006. The couple had everything going for them, even brought in kids into the mix not knowing that they'd be soon co-parenting them. They separated in 2012 and divorced in 2014.

They seemed done for good but Malaysia hoped they tried counseling because, according to her, they love each other still, she admitted to her feelings on one episode of 'Couples Court: With The Cutlers'. Again, this was in 2017 and a lot must have changed between then and now.

Since splitting with her ex, the reality TV star has been rumored to have dated OT Genasis and James Harden. Dallasblack.com speculated that she and James could be a "new couple" after they were spotted enjoying a Beyonce concert in Houston. While there's no confirmation on that, with rapper OT it was different. Even though the alleged couple never admitted to being in a relationship, they would share a lot of pictures of each other on Instagram, which sort of formed the basis of their relationship rumors, VH1 wrote.

Malaysia may have been slow when it came to moving on, jumping into the dating pool, but when she did she went in with a clear mind. According to reports, she won big in her divorce from Jannero. According to an Essence story, the former NBA star was told to give half of his NBA pension and 401k savings plan. In addition to this, he would have to pay up to $15,380 and $7,500 towards monthly child and spousal support. Malaysia apparently stood to receive a 2015 Mercedes Benz G550 and rights to the Three Beats LLC jewelry collection.


This was followed by a cold social fight, which was being had slyly between the former spouses. "Once a good girl has gone bad, she's gone forever," the athlete had tweeted, TMZ Sports reported, to which Malaysia responded (albeit indirectly from her feed) with a post that read: "Don't worry, I'm not f*** up about it. At All. Carry on. God bless."

But like most of her girlfriends from 'BBW', she is more than her relationships. According to Celebrity Net Worth, her current net worth is $3.5 million dollars. While most may assume that she may have amassed the wealth from spousal support and show's paychecks, there's a good chance that she earned it all from her many businesses. Malaysia worked as an influencer with The Virgin Hair Fantasy (owned by Jane and Ed Harris) and has also been associated with Vanity in the City (for skin), and Urban Skin RX for (gel masks), Hello Beautiful reported.
