Months after his high-profile relationship with Larsa Pippen ended, Malik Beasley publicly apologized to his wife, Montana Yao. The Minnesota Timberwolves player, 24, posted a lengthy apology to Yao, 23, on Instagram on Sunday after he began a months-long relationship with Pippen, 46, last fall while he and Yao were still legally married (Beasley and Pippen have since split).
Beasley captioned a photo of him and Yao holding their now 2-year-old son Makai in the hospital shortly after his birth: “I wanna say sorry for putting you in the situation you were put in the last few months.. my head wasn’t where it was supposed to be.” “When in fact, everything I needed was before my eyes the whole time. I’m telling you, and the world, that you’re the only one for me.”

After photos surfaced of Beasley and Pippen making out in December, Yao filed for divorce. The model later alleged that Beasley cheated on her with Pippen and that she and her son had to move out of their home. Beasley and Yao had been married for a while, according to Pippen, who was previously married to NBA icon Scottie Pippen.
“There was prior communication on the subject. There was no hiding it. It seems like everyone I know is getting hitched and having a blast these days “in a February interview on Hollywood Unlocked, the former cast member of “The Real Housewives of Miami” “I can say with confidence that I have acted in such a capacity before.
Therefore, if you’re not being dishonest and telling me everything, I’m going to take it at face value.” Pippen’s representative told PEOPLE last month that the Bravo star and Beasley had broken up. They are pals and are still talking to each other, but they are not together, a source told PEOPLE. The breakup, we’re told, was due in part to physical separation.
Earlier this week, a source told PEOPLE that Pippen is “excited about her upcoming chapter,” adding, “Malik who?!” Pippen’s first divorce from ex Scottie came in 2015, but the couple had been married since 1997. They reconciled in 2017, but Pippen filed for divorce the following year, effectively ending their marriage. Scotty Jr., Preston, Justin, and Sophia are their four combined children.
