Montana Yao, wife of Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley, is speaking out following her husband’s controversial outing with Larsa Pippen, the ex-wife of Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen.
The Instagram model — who shares a child with the 24-year-old NBA star — posted a series of messages on social media in the wake of recent photos emerging of Beasley and Larsa, 46, holding hands.
“I’ve always and will forever remain true to who I am and GOD has never let me down,” Yao wrote on Instagram. “The truth always comes out one way or another …”
Yao added: “Wow … I don’t even know this man … this is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.”
Yao is said to have been “blindsided” by the images of Beasley and Larsa together in Miami, according to TMZ.
In addition to Yao, Scotty Pippen Jr. — Larsa’s 20-year-old son with Scottie — addressed the buzz on Twitter this week.
“Focused on myself and my goals. I’m not responsible for nobody’s actions. All good over here,” he wrote.
The college basketball player also liked multiple tweets with messages of support from fans feeling sorry for him being put in a difficult position by his mum’s love life as he aims to graduate to the NBA.
Larsa filed for divorce from Scottie, who won a stack of championships in the 1990s as Michael Jordan’s right-hand man at the Bulls, in 2018 — two years after initially calling their relationship quits.
The pair share four children together, including Scotty Jr.
Larsa’s dating life has previously been in the spotlight, and last year she emphatically denied leaving a Los Angeles nightclub with Aussie NBA star Ben Simmons.
The 46-year-old has claimed she dated NBA star Tristan Thompson before Khloe Kardashian and the now ex-friend of the Kardashian clan was also linked to rapper Future.
Larsa used to be inseparable with reality TV’s first family, but at some point this year they had a falling out and unfollowed each other on social media.
Beasley signed a five-year, $60 million deal with the Timberwolves this off-season.
