The American TV personality Larsa Pippen and the American basketball player, Malik Beasley, are no longer a thing. The two reportedly split on April 6, 2021.
Pippen and Beasley’s relationship first sparked in November 2020, when they were captured holding hands together in a Miami shopping center. Following that, their appearance became usual, which confirmed their relationship.
However, it seems that their togetherness wasn’t meant to last forever as they separated just four months after dating each other. After the news of the split broke out, the former Real Housewives of Miami star’s rep released a statement confirming the information.
In the statement, Pippen’s rep first confirmed Larsa and Malik’s separation. Then, he went on to say that the two had celebrated 2021 Valentine’s Day together and are still in touch with each other. Likewise, he stated that the now-former duo decided to end their bond as many things became harder with travel and timing things.

But that’s not it to the story of Pippen and Beasley’s relationship. When Pippen and Beasley were first seen together, Beasley was in a marital relationship with his girlfriend turned wife, Montana Yao, and had a son named Makai. In December 2020, when pictures of the two holding hands in Miami got released on the internet, it sparked a huge conflict.
After those pictures reached up to Montana Yao, she got completely shocked. She took to her Instagram Story and wrote, "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." Shortly after, on December 8, 2020, she filed for divorce. A day later, on December 9, 2020, Montana shared an unbelievable thing through her Instagram story. In it, she wrote that Beasley had told her and her son to leave their family home.
Trying to address the controversy, Pippen also shared something through her Instagram story. Through it, she said not to believe everything that you see on social media platforms. Also, she supported her words by stating that even salt looks like sugar.
Don't always trust what you see on social media. Even salt looks like sugar.
Amid all the controversies, Pippen and Beasley stayed together, and after a while, Beasley’s divorce got finalized.

In addition to that, she stated that she and Beasley had spoken about his marital life, and there were no secrets among them. She continued by saying:
I know a lot of people that are married and exiting. I've played that part. So for me, if you're not being shady and you're telling me all your stuff, I'm going to believe you.
