Larsa Pippen Spotted With NBA Player: His Partner Speaks Out!
Larsa Pippen wants fans to take any online chatter about her with a grain of salt.
Amid recent drama over photos that surfaced of herself and NBA player Malik Beasley hand-in-hand in a Miami mall, Larsa took to social media to, well, tell her fans to ignore social media. Nothing at all ironic about that, right?
“Don’t always trust what you see on social media,” she posted to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, Dec. 2. “Even salt looks like sugar.”
This comes a day after Montana Yao, Malik’s reported wife and the mother of their 18-month-old son, seemingly reacted to the photos of 46-year-old Larsa with the 24-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves guard that were taken by an onlooker on Nov. 23.
“The truth always comes out one way or another,” Montana, 23, wrote on her Instagram Story on Tuesday, Dec. 1. “Appreciate all the love y’all for real… Wow… I don’t even know this man..this is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the time just like y’all.”
A source told E! News that Larsa was aware that Malik is married to Montana, but that she was under the impression they were moving on.
“She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn’t doing anything wrong by hanging out with him,” the insider shared.
The source revealed that Larsa and Malik still intend to meet up again after things cool down, adding that Larsa “likes the attention and doesn’t care how this makes her look.”
The Real Housewives of Miami alum is the estranged wife of NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen. They tied the knot in 1997, but he filed for divorce in 2016, and she re-filed in 2018. The status of their case remains unclear.
