Malik Beasley’s wife Montana Yao has filed for divorce from the NBA player, days after he was seen holding hands with socialite Larsa Pippen. Here’s why she’s staying quiet.
Former Real Housewives of Miami star has Larsa Pippen has yet to speak out after she was spotted holding hands with NBA player Malik Beasley at a mall. Days after their affectionate public display, it was revealed that his wife Montana Yao had filed for divorce. A source close to Larsa spoke to HollywoodLife exclusively about why she was staying quiet on the matter. “Larsa didn’t have anything to do with their break-up and she could have spoken out to defend herself but out of respect she kept quiet, she felt that was the right thing to do,” the insider told us.
The source continued, “It was upsetting that people jumped all over her but she’s a very confident person and she knows who she is and that she wasn’t in the wrong. Her family and true friends have all been very supportive and that is all that matters to her. She has so many great things going on right now with the launch of her own jewelry line, which is a dream come true. She’s not letting this drama get her down.” A second insider close to the mom-of-four also revealed that she was “staying in her lane”.
“Larsa doesn’t want to be blamed for Malik’s breakup. She is not interested in making whatever their problems are her problem,” the source told HL. She thinks Malik is really cool… [but] Larsa would like it known that she isn’t the reason for others’ relationship problems. She is staying in her lane and feels she shouldn’t be blamed for anything else that comes out from all of this.”
Larsa was photographed holding hands with the Minnesota Timberwolves player on November 23. Just days later, his wife Montana took to Instagram to issue a message that seemingly alluded to the photographs. “Wow…I don’t even know this man,” she began. “This is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.” Montana and Malick, who have a young son together, are now going through a divorce.
