A woman scorned! Malik Beasley’s estranged wife, Montana Yao, has been trying to navigate life after filing for divorce from the basketball player amid cheating rumors.
“Hey y’all I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for your tremendous love and support during this time,” she wrote on Instagram. “Things have been pretty rough, I’m not going to lie… And just like you all I’m pretty confused.”
Yao and Beasley got married in March of this year after welcoming their son, Makai, one year prior. The beauty explained that she would update her fans “if or when I feel it is appropriate,” and then thanked her fans for their “encouragement and love” during this difficult time in her life.
