Larsa Pippen's Latest Romance Leads To A High-Profile Divorce

Larsa Pippen and Malik Beasley have found themselves in one very, very messy situation. The former Real Housewives of Miami star was photographed in Miami, Fla. on Nov. 23, 2020, with NBA player Beasley. Paparazzi spotted the pair holding hands while walking through a Miami shopping mall, per People.

Before his controversial outing with Pippen, Beasley said he wanted to take the mother of four on a date, asking her out via an Instagram comment. "I just want to take you on a date and treat you like a queen," Beasley wrote on Nov. 16, 2020, on a Pippen post, according to a screenshot from Comments by Athletes. Meanwhile, per The New York Post, Pippen cautioned fans about distinguishing fact from fiction on social media, posting a cryptic message to her Instagram story after the photos emerged. "Don't always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar," Pippen wrote.

While Pippen is divorced from NBA star Scottie Pippen, Beasley is married to model Montana Yao. Needless to say, Yao appeared to be blindsided by the photos. Keep scrolling to find out what she had to say and what action she took after seeing those Larsa Pippen and Malik Beasley photos.

Montana Yao took immediate action after the Larsa photos

The photos of Larsa Pippen and Malik Beasley holding hands have reportedly lead to his wife, Montana Yao (above, right), filing for divorce. Yao and Beasley got married in March after dating for two years, and they share a 1-year-old son, Makai. On Dec. 4, 2020, E! News reported that Yao filed for divorce the very same day she saw the photos of him with Pippen.

"I've always and will forever remain true to who I am and GOD has never let me down," the model posted on her Instagram Story (via E! Online) on Dec. 1, 2020. "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." However, sources told the New York Post that Yao and Beasley, who have a child together, have been living separate lives.

Larsa Pippen's son Scotty Pippen Jr. has even reacted to the photos and threw some slight shade, tweeting, "Focused on myself and my goals. I'm not responsible for nobody's actions. All good over here." We will have to wait and see if there's any more fallout from the Larsa Pippen and Malik Beasley photo scandal.
