Malik Beasley and Larsa Pippen have been in the news for the past few days. For those unaware, a photo of the Minnesota Timberwolves star and the former 'The Real Housewives of Miami' star surfaced on November 23 created quite a stir and raised eyebrows. On the other hand, Beasley’s wife, Instagram model Montana Yao claimed that she knew nothing of this alleged affair. In the photo snapped in Miami, Beasley and Pippen can be seen holding hands while wearing masks and walking out in public.
On Instagram, the 24-year-old NBA star's wife Yao had expressed her shock after hearing about the news. She was apparently blindsided and only got to know about the budding romance through the photos, a report said. Her Instagram story had read, as reported by MEAWW, “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.” She also posted on her stories, "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."
In latest news, a source confirmed exclusively to E! News that 23-year-old Yao has filed for divorce. Montana filed for a divorce the day she saw the photos," the insider said. "Montana never cheated, and it's not in her character. She's not dating anybody. She's a family person. She's focusing on taking care of her son with her parents. They are quarantining together. Her son is her first priority."
A source had previously told E! News that the two [Pippen and Beasley] "have been texting for weeks now and had been making several plans to see each other." The source alleged 46-year-old Pippen knew Beasley was married. The source also claimed that the Minnesota Timberwolves star "played it off that him and Montana were having issues and ending their marriage."
"She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn't doing anything wrong by hanging out with him," the source said. "Larsa and Malik are still in touch and are planning to see each other again when the news blows over." The report also states that amid this controversy, Pippen took to Instagram with a cryptic message for fans: "Don't always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar."
According to Yao’s website, she was born in California and graduated from Malibu High School in 2015. She was Miss Malibu Teen USA 2016, and placed in the top ten at Miss California Teen USA 2016. The website also mentions her father Paul is Chinese and was born in Hong Kong, who immigrated to the USA in 1965 and is a United States Veteran. Her mother, Gina, is of English, Irish, and German descent and was born and raised in California. Her father is an entrepreneur and her mother co-owns the global brand JaggerEdge.
Beasley and Yao were in the news in October as well. As reported, Beasley had allegedly aimed a rifle at a couple and their teenage daughter in an SUV outside his Plymouth home, and police found a large stack of marijuana and other guns at his residence, according to charges filed on October 29. Upon the arrival of the officers, Beasley walked down the driveway yelling at them. Officers spoke to the victims who had alerted the police and said that they were on a Parade of Homes with their 13-year-old. They had pulled up to a roped-off entrance and assumed that it was closed and decided to look for another home to view.
The complaint further states that the victims heard a tapping on their window and saw Beasley allegedly pointing a firearm at them and asking them to get off his property. The victims were back on the road and saw the athlete pointing the rifle at them as they drove off. Later, in photo lineups, the victims identified Beasley as the assailant with the rifle.
These remarks were made by the internet and individual organizations, MEAWW cannot confirm them independently and nor does it support these claims being made on the Internet.
