The fairy tale between Larsa Pippen and Malik Beasley has reportedly come to an end after a couple of months full of controversy for the couple. Pippen and Beasley were spotted holding hands last year, which sparked a lot of reactions around the NBA community.
This situation shocked a lot of people, especially after Beasley’s wife Montana Yao called him out for his relationship with Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife. Well, now things have ended for the couple and they’re ready to move on. According to Johnni Macke of Us Weekly, they are still friends since that was the beginning of their relationship but Larsa wants to give the Minnesota Timberwolves player some space after he’s live a couple of rough months.
Fizzled out! Larsa Pippen and Malik Beasley split after making headlines for their PDA-filled outing last year, sources exclusively tell Us Weekly.
The Real Housewives of Miami alum, 46, and the Minnesota Timberwolves player, 24, “were friends first,” one source tells Us, noting they are “still in communication.”
The duo spent Valentine’s Day together in February, according to the source, but have since parted ways. “Larsa decided to distance herself from the drama,” the insider says. “He was going through a lot and the timing wasn’t right.”
The source adds: “Many people assumed it was serious when in fact it was not.” The Chicago native, who shares four children, Scotty Jr., 20, Preston, 19, Justin, 16, and Sophia, 13, with her estranged husband, Scottie Pippen, has now been “focusing on her family and Larsa Marie, her jewelry brand,” the insider adds.
Their relationship didn’t start the best way and although they’re still friends, it doesn’t seem like it ended differently. Beasley has been dealing with a complex divorce with Yao; he recently was sentenced to house arrest after this season and will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks after suffering a left hamstring injury, right after he returned from a suspension by the league.
This is too much to bear for the player, no doubt about it, but in these cases, one would imagine is best for you to have your loved one by your side. Well, they agreed to part ways and will continue their lives as friends and nothing else.
