The Malik Beasley divorce court drama is starting to get ugly.
Earlier this year, the Minnesota Timberwolves guard went viral when he left his unsuspecting wife Montana Yao for Scottie Pippen’s ex Larsa Pippen.

Yao has since filed for divorce and is demanding “temporary spousal maintenance” amid their split but her request was denied. The judge overseeing the case did end up granting Yao temporary child support to the tune of $6,500 a month.

The model was denied “temporary spousal maintenance” on Monday but was granted temporary child support in the amount of $6,500 per month.
Yao’s request for a $15,000 advance from the estranged couple’s marital estate has been deferred. She was also denied her request for $20,000 to pay her attorney’s fees.
Beasley is now contesting his son’s paternity and had the court issue a DNA test to make sure the kid is his.
Malik Beasley has called his and estranged wife Montana Yao’s son’s paternity into question amid their divorce, Us Weekly can confirm.
According to the filing, Beasley “now contests paternity” and has already taken the test to learn whether he is the biological father of Makai. “[The] results of those tests are unknown as of the date of this Order,” the documents, obtained by Us, state.
The Minnesota Timberwolves player’s attorney, Steven A. Haney, exclusively told Us in a statement on Tuesday, March 30, that the paternity test was “taken last week.” He added: “Given the facts and circumstances surrounding these parties’ relationship and lifestyle it would have been negligent not to have one performed. If he is deemed the biological father, he will comply with the order or the court. The Order was contingent upon paternity being established.”
Just two weeks ago Beasley posted a heartfelt message to his son in question on Instagram.
