Montana Yao, Malik Beasley’s wife, goes off on Larsa Pippen on Instagram following the Timberwolves forward’s public apology to her.
Malik Beasley of the Minnesota Timberwolves found himself in some hot water last year following accusations of him essentially abandoning his wife and child for Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife, Larsa Pippen. The 46-year-old was photographed getting up close with Beasley for the first time on November 23rd, 2020, with the photos leaking early December.
Montana Yao and Malik Beasley tied the knot in 2018 but after the photos of Pippen and her husband leaked online, Yao promptly took to Instagram to say, “I don’t even know this man anymore.” She then filed for divorce in that same month and things have been quiet on this front for quite some time now.
Fast-forward to today and Malik Beasley has taken to Instagram to publicly apologize to the woman he married in 2018, claiming he wants to be there for Yao and their son, and that he wasn’t himself nor was he in the right headspace when dealing with the situation.

Montana Yao responds to Malik Beasley and goes after Larsa Pippen on Instagram.
Yao, who has her own social media following, took to her Instagram stories to address Beasley’s attempt at reuniting his family. “Makai (their son) and I do appreciate Malik’s apology. It’s hard to own up to bad decisions and apologize, especially publicly. My main priority will always be my son and this is a step forward in healing for me and also having Malik be a part of Makai’s life.”
The seemingly calm Montana Yao then immediately switched things up on her next story as she attempted to eviscerate Larsa Pippen for having drawn a wedge in between her family. Yao called out the Real Housewife of Miami alum for ‘breaking the girl code’ and acting as though she did not know about her and Malik’s marriage.
In all fairness, Beasley was the one who initiated the entirety of this ordeal when he first commented underneath Larsa’s post last year, “I just want to treat you like a queen and take you out on a date.” However, to keep things less complicated, let’s focus on what Yao had to say.

Along with accusations of being a homewrecker, Yao followed that all up with saying Pippen tried to take Malik Beasley to a fertility clinic with her and essentially said that she’s a deadbeat mother to the kids she already has. To top it all off, Yao posted a side-by-side of Larsa some time back to what she looks now, implying the use of cosmetic surgery on her face.
