Montana Helena Klein Yao’s Story📖
Successful model Montana Helena Klein Yao also happens to be the wife of famous basketball pro Malik Beasley.
Born, and still residing in California, Montana is the only child of parents, Paul and Gina Klein Yao. She was a pupil at Maranatha High School, before moving on to Malibu High until 2015 when she graduated. Born under the Zodiac sign of Leo, Yao is 26 years old. Like other Leos, she is strong, fiercely protective of her family, and puts others first.
With mixed ethnicity, including Asian, English, and German, Yao was in high demand as a model, and after scoring big in both the Miss Malibu Teen and Miss California Teen USA competitions the year after she left school, she followed her dreams to become a model.
In 2018 Yao met Malik Beasley, NBA player for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and started dating, getting married two years later. Their son was born in the spring of 2019.
Sadly, in May 2021, Yao filed for divorce after discovering, several months before, that Beasley was cheating with reality TV star, Larsa Pippen.

What is the scandal around cheating?😲
In November 2020, photos emerged of Beasley holding hands with reality star 46-year-old Larsa Pippen. The ex-wife of Scottie Pippen, the NBA legend, was looking very friendly with Beasley whilst they enjoyed some retail therapy in a Miami mall. When the images appeared on Instagram, a shocked Yao is quoted as saying:
“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.”
After the couple had been apart for five months, in May 2021, Beasley finally issued an apology:
“I wanna say sorry for putting you in the situation you were put in the last few months.. my head wasn’t where it was supposed to be… I was looking for more when it was right here that whole time… I’m telling the world and you that there’s nobody like you for me..”
But the apology was too little, too late.
Prior to her finding out about her hubby’s infidelity, Yao and Beasley were arrested, with the latter being charged with possession of marijuana, concealing stolen property, and brandishing a weapon. All in all, a pretty bad year for them, then!
