"Sometimes you meet a person and you just click — you’re comfortable with them, like you’ve known them your whole life, and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything," Pippen wrote on Saturday, December 19.
Pippen then posted a selfie with the caption, "God, goals, growing, and glowing @prettylittlething." Beasley is believed to have "liked" and then swiftly "unliked" the photo.
"Here before Malik," one fan joked in the comments section. "Was Malik one of your goals?" another asked.
This came shortly after the duo was spotted getting cozy on a date night on Monday, December 14, in Minnesota.
"Wow … I don’t even know this man," Yao wrote at the time. "This is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all."
Yao quickly filed for divorce but later revealed that she and their 2-year-old son were kicked out of the family home. "Things have been pretty rough, I’m not going to lie … And just like you all I’m pretty confused," Yao admitted, adding that her husband did not privately or publicly address the PDA scandal or offer "any type of apology."
Beasley and Pippen haven’t directly acknowledged their relationship but have dropped hints and cryptic messages on social media. After Yao’s initial post the day the photos were leaked, Pippen posted on her Instagram Story, "Don’t always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar."
"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," a source said.
Last week, Pippen posted a selfie with the caption, "What makes you the happiest." Beasley commented, "U," with a red heart emoji.
Several weeks earlier, Beasley reportedly commented, "I just want to take you on a date and treat you like a queen" under one of Pippen’s posts, so it looks like these two are unfazed by the drama.
Pippen split from her ex-husband of almost 20 years, Scottie Pippen, in 2018, and shares four children with the retired basketball player: Scotty Jr., 20, Preston, 18, Justin, 15, and Sophia, 12.
