What's the deal between Montana Yao and Malik Beasley?
Montana and Malik started dating in 2018, and they eventually got married in 2020. They share a son, who they named Makai Joseph Beasley (born March 2019).
The couple attracted public attention in November 2020 for a cheating scandal. Montana Yao's husband was accused of cheating on his wife with the actress and model Larsa Pippen. Larsa is the ex-wife of the NBA star Scottie Pippen. Helena learnt of her husband's infidelity when photos of Larsa and Beasley holding hands were shared online.
Allegedly, Malik asked Larsa out via Instagram comments one week before they were photographed together. The two were seen at a shopping complex in Miami holding hands and having a good time with each other.
Yao responded to the photos in an Instagram post, expressing her shock and disappointment. Reportedly, she filed for divorce after discovering the affair. She later thanked her Instagram fans for their support.
In May 2021, Malik wrote an apology to his estranged partner on his Instagram page. He said that his head wasn't in the right place for him to have done what he did to Montana and their son. He went ahead to proclaim his love for her and asked for forgiveness.
Helena appreciated the apology, and more so because it was done publicly, so all people knew about Malik's love for her. She went ahead to call out Larsa in a separate post telling her to stop embarrassing herself and her kids. In her response, Larsa claimed that Malik had pursued her persistently before she even knew that the basketballer was married. All the posts were later deleted.
