Malik Beasley’s wife Montana Yao has reportedly filed for divorce.
On Thursday, E! News claimed the beauty made the move just after her 24-year-old athlete husband was seen holding hands in a Miami mall with former Kardashian friend, 46-year-old Larsa Pippen, in late November.
‘Montana filed for a divorce the day she saw the photos,’ the insider said. ‘Montana never cheated, and it’s not in her character. 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.’

Flashing a generous amount of side boob in a plunging sleeveless black bodysuit, she also rocked baggy pants and a pair of sneakers as she kept her man close.
Suited up in a face mask after testing negative for COVID-19 earlier this week, she kept it safe as the pair did some shopping.
Earlier this week, a source told TMZ that Malik’s wife Montana was ‘blindsided’ by the PDA-packed pics of the pair.
According to the outlet, Yao ‘had expected Malik to be home in Minnesota for his 24th birthday’ – three days after the photos of Larsa and Malik were taken – but was ‘disappointed’ when he didn’t show.

Also uncovered this week were comments made by the 24-year-old married pro athlete on the 46-year-old reality star’s Instagram from a few weeks ago.
The very public post on Larsa’s selfie came weeks before they were pictured on their rendezvous together.
Malik wrote: ‘I just want to take you on a date and treat you like a queen.’
Recently Larsa has found herself embroiled in controversy as she spilled some major tea about her former relationship with the Kardashian family while speaking on the Hollywood Raw podcast.
Claiming that Kanye West ‘brainwashed’ the whole family, which prompted them all to unfollow her on social media in July, Larsa did not hold back in the interview.
She claimed that West would blow up her phone ‘to rant,’ as she said she was his ‘go-to person to call when he wasn’t happy with X,Y, and Z,’ which seemed to undermine his relationship with Kim.
Since the interview sources close to the family have spoken out saying, ‘they all think Larsa is toxic energy,’ as the family was blindsided she would go behind their backs.
The E! insider added, ‘They think she’s trying to stay relevant and Kim doesn’t appreciate the accusations regarding Kanye.’
