TMZ: Montana Yao Files for Divorce after 9-Month Marriage to NBA Star Husband Malik Beasley
Popular model Montana Yao's fairytale took a left turn when a scandal was initiated by her husband, Malik Beasley, and another woman. Divorce seems to be the model's only escape.
Montana Yao and basketball player Malik Beasley, who reportedly got married on March 5, 2020, and share one young child together, are on the verge of a divorce.
A peek into the court case reveals Yao filed the papers in Minnesota, where her family had been living since Beasley was traded to the Timberwolves in February.

The mother of one added in an Instagram post that she and her child were told to leave their family home ten days ago due to a scandal.
The scandal was revealed when the basketball player was photographed in an outing, holding hands with another woman said to be Larsa Pippen.
Her only solace is perhaps her son, Makia, who arrived before the duo got married.

The NBA star's wife, who was shocked about the new development, responded on social media that she had just found out about her husband's infidelity with the rest of the world.
Yao added that she didn't seem to know him anymore and that things seemed to be getting tough in her marriage if she was being truthful.
The 23-year-old ended her sad message by saying she would always stay true to who she was, and God would never let her down.
Her only solace is perhaps her son, Makia, who arrived before the couple got married. Yao and her son seem to have a strong mother-son bond as they were seen enjoying a stroll in an old Instagram photo.
It showed the mother of one in a gorgeous black jacket, tight black pants, and brown Air Jordans. Little Makia was shielded inside a black stroller held firmly by his mom.
Meanwhile, Beasley, who averaged 20.7 points per game in the 14 games he played with the Timberwolves in 2020, signed a 4-year $60 Million deal in September.
Although Beasley and Yao seemed to have a history together, it appears they prefer to kick-start a new path away from each other.
