Malik Beasley’s Wife Montana Yao Speaks Out After Split
After calling it quits with NBA player Malik Beasley, Montana Yao is giving an update on the aftermath.
On Wednesday, Yao admitted on Instagram, “Things have been pretty rough I'm not going to lie.”
Without naming anyone, she shared, “We were told to leave our family home 10 days ago and just like you all I'm pretty confused. There has been no private or public addressing of the situation nor any type of apology."
“I'm not the type to disclose too much information but I definitely will if or when I feel it is appropriate," Yao pointed out. "I mainly wanted to say, I have never received so many kind words of encouragement and love, and it has really held me up to be strong for not only myself, but more importantly for my son."
Montana also expressed her appreciation for those “who have sent me support and understanding.”
TMZ Sports reports Yao filed divorce papers earlier this week in Minnesota, where they had been living since he was traded to the Timberwolves.
Montana ended the relationship after photos surfaced of Beasley holding hands with reality star Larsa Pippen.
A source told E! News, “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."
Last month, Malik was spotted on a date with Larsa at a mall in Miami. Another insider said, “She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn't doing anything wrong by hanging out with him. Larsa and Malik are still in touch and are planning to see each other again when the news blows over."
Montana reacted to the pics, writing on her Instagram Story, “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. Appreciate all the love y'all for real. Wow… I don't even know this man..this is wild y'all I'm seeing it for the time just like y'all."
Larsa appeared to fire back at the pics with her own cryptic message, warning, “Don't always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar."
Malik and Montana, who met in 2018, have one child together, their son Makai. They tied the knot in March.
