Montana Yao, the wife of Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley, said Wednesday she is “pretty confused” amid recent drama involving her husband and Larsa Pippen.
“Hey y’all I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for your tremendous love and support during this time,” Yao began.
“Things have been pretty rough I’m not going to life. We were told to leave our family home 10 days ago and just like you all I’m pretty confused,” she continued.
Yao, who shares a child with Beasley, added, “There has been no private or public addressing of the situation nor any type of apology.”
“I’m not the type to disclose too much information but I definitely will if or when I feel it is appropriate,” she continued. “I mainly wanted to say, I have never received so many kind words of encouragement and love, and it has really held me up to be strong for not only myself, but more importantly for my son.”
Yao added she is “focusing on healing myself and becoming the best mother I can be at this time.”
In the wake of the images coming to light, Yao has reportedly filed for divorce from Beasley.
“Montana filed for a divorce the day she saw the photos,” an insider previously told E! News.
“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,” the source continued.
Prior to news of the divorce filing, sources told The Post the couple had been living separate lives. Yao was previously linked to Denver Broncos safety Su’a Cravens, 25. He and Beasley got into an altercation last year.
Pippen, the estranged wife of former NBA star Scottie Pippen, 55, appeared to address critics Friday with a cryptic message on Instagram.
“Don’t judge me until you know me. Don’t underestimate me unless you challenge me. And don’t talk about me until you’ve talked to me,” she posted to her Instagram story at the time.
Pippen, who was spotted in Miami over the weekend, has four children with the Chicago Bulls legend, including 20-year-old son Scotty Pippen Jr.
Last week, Scotty Jr. addressed the controversy on social media.
“Focused on myself and my goals. I’m not responsible for nobody’s actions. All good over here,” the 20-year-old tweeted.
Pippen filed for filed for divorce from Scottie in 2018.
