Malik Beasley’s wish came true. A week before the married NBA star was spotted holding hands with Larsa Pippen, he begged for a chance to ‘treat her like a queen.’
Did Malik Beasley just The Secret his way to a date with Larsa Pippen? The 24-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves player was spotted walking hand-in-hand with Larsa, 46, in a Miami mall on Nov. 23. This PDA seemingly came out of nowhere…except that Malik practically asked the Real Housewives of Miami alum out a week before their outing. “I just want to take you on a date and treat you like a queen,” Malik wrote on Nov. 16, commenting on a photo Larsa posted to Instagram on Oct. 24. The fact that he commented on an older pic also reveals Malik was scrolling through her feed to look at all her photos.

Eventually, her “mystery man” was revealed to be Malik, which surprised many people – including his wife. Like Larsa – who is still married to her estranged husband, Scottie Pippen – Malik is still married to “mother, wife, model, and rapper” Montana Yao. Shortly after Malik was clocked as Larsa’s “mystery man,” Montana posted a cryptic message to her Instagram.
“Wow, I don’t even know this man…this is wild, y’all,” she wrote, without mentioning Malik by name. “I’m seeing it for the first time just like y’all.” She also told fans in a separate Instagram Story that she “appreciate all the love y’all, for real.” She added both a “prayer hands” and red heart emoji. Supposedly, Malik and Montana met in 2018, two years after she won Miss Malibu Teen USA. Recently, Montana launched a YouTube series titled Its MY Life, and the first episode featured a family photoshoot with her, Malik, and their 1-year-old son Makai Joseph Beasley.
Before this PDA with Malik, Larsa was last connected with Too Hot To Handle star Harry Jowsey.
