Malik Beasley’s wife is said to have been “blindsided” by photos of the NBA star with the ex-wife of basketball legend Scottie Pippen.

Photos emerged on Tuesday of Beasley, 24, and Larsa Pippen, 46, holding hands in Miami last month, causing a massive stir in the NBA world.

And Beasley’s wife Montana Yao, who has a child with the Minnesota Timberwolves guard, is far from impressed.

“I’ve always and will forever remain true to who I am and GOD has never let me down,” Yao wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.

“The truth always comes out one way or another...

“Wow … I don’t even know this man … this is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.”

According to TMZ, Yao feels “blindsided” and “pretty upset”, unsure if their relationship will survive.

TMZ quoted a “source close to Yao” that she was expecting Beasley home for his 24th birthday on November 26, but he wasn’t able to make it.

Meanwhile, Pippen’s son Scottie Jr also seems to be rather unimpressed by his mother’s actions.

Pippen Jr, who plays college basketball for Vanderbilt, went on a ‘liking’ spree on Twitter on Wednesday over fan comments about his mother.

“Focused on myself and my goals,” he wrote.

“I’m not responsible for nobody’s actions. All good over here.”

Pippen Jr liked about a dozen posts with messages of support from fans.

Larsa and Scottie Pippen divorced in 2018, with the former reality TV star reportedly dating Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson afterwards.

Last year she denied reports she’d been seen leaving a Los Angeles nightclub with Aussie star Ben Simmons.

Beasley signed a five-year, $60 million deal with the Timberwolves this off-season.

Larsa Pippen denies ugly cheating allegations

Larsa Pippen was also in the spotlight in May after copping the blame for her divorce with Scottie.

Scottie Pippen was thrust back into the news after he featured heavily in ESPN’s 10-part docu-series ‘The Last Dance’, which chronicled the the Chicago Bulls’ famous dynasty of the 1990s.

Former ‘Housewives of Miami’ star Larsa posted a photo to Instagram during the series with the caption: “Find someone who’ll put u first!!”

In response one follower wrote: “Too bad you didn't put Scottie Pippen first.”

Larsa fired back and said: “Really? I did everything for him literally everything.”

When another fan wrote: “That's what Scottie did smh”, Larsa replied: "How do u know that?”

The person commenting then said: “@larsapippen bro he was loyal to you no? Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't you do adultery first?”

To which Larsa spat back: “Stop tripping dude u don't know what you're talking about. I held him down and still do.”

“Just bc I don't air his dirty laundry doesn't mean it doesn't stink I just don't wanna do his laundry anymore.”
