Malik Beasley’s wife Montana Yao is speaking out after pictures of him holding hands with Larsa Pippen have gone viral.
On Tuesday, numerous outlets posted photos of Beasley, 24, and Pippen, 46, arm-in-arm during a November 23 outing in Miami.
The two were seen holding hands as they walked around a shopping area while both wearing face masks.
While Pippen is believed to be single, many fans pointed out that the Minnesota Timberwolves player is married to Yao and the two share a child.
Later that day, Yao went on Instagram Story and confirmed that she did not know about Beasley and Pippen’s outing until the scandalous photos circulated.
“Wow… I don’t even know this man,” the model wrote on IG Story. “This is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.”
She also wrote that “the truth always comes out one way or another,” adding, “I’ve always and will forever remain true to who I am and GOD has never let me down… Appreciate all the love y’all for real.”
On Tuesday afternoon, a source close to Yao told TMZ that Montana was “blindsided” when she saw her husband with the former “Real Housewives of Miami” star.
Insiders also said that Yao expected Beasley to come home for his 24th birthday on November 26 and was disappointed when he didn’t make it back.
Later that day, a source told The Shade Room that Yao has retained a lawyer and plans on filing for divorce from Beasley. The Shade Room insider also says Yao is completely devastated as there were no signs of his supposed cheating.
On Wednesday, The Shade Room posted reported screenshots in which Beasley appears to ask Pippen out by commenting on an older IG photo.
Per Us Weekly, Yao and Beasley met in 2018 and welcomed their son, Makai, in March 2019. It is, however, unclear when they married.
Pippen was previously married to former Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen, with whom she shares four children: Scotty Jr., 20, Preston, 18, Justin, 15, and Sophia, 12. Scottie is also the father of Antron, 33, with ex-wife Karen McCollum; Taylor, 26, with ex-girlfriend Sonya Roby; and Sierra, 25, with ex-fiancée Yvette DeLeone.
In November 2018, Larsa filed for divorce from Scottie, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
