Former friend of the Keeping Up With the Kardashian family Larsa Pippen responded to her latest scandal regarding married NBA player Malik Beasley.
Larsa Pippen is speaking out after being at the center of backlash for her latest NBA romance. The former friend of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family has addressed the criticism she’s receiving for being spotted holding hands with married pro athlete Malik Beasley.
Not one to stay out of the tabloids for too long, Larsa has become a trending topic once again in a matter of months. Earlier this summer, fans wondered what led to Kim Kardashian and her sisters unfollowing Larsa on social media. Just last month, the former star of The Real Housewives of Miami did a tell-all interview against the famous clan to explain her side of the story. Not only did she accuse Kanye West of “brainwashing” the family and turning them against her, but she also claimed to have dated Tristan Thompson just a few days before he started publicly dating Khloé Kardashian. Most recently, she was photographed walking hand-in-hand with a mystery man who was later identified as a married NBA player. Now, the former reality star is speaking out and defending her actions.

After it was revealed how “blindsided” Malik’s wife, Montana Yao, was by his shopping date with Larsa, sources for the former Bravo star told E! News she and the basketball star had been talking “for weeks now.” The insider added that, during the time they were talking, they were “making several plans to see each other,” before ultimately meeting up on November 23. That’s when they were seen wearing face masks while holding hands as they walked along a strip mall. Larsa wore all black with a side boob revealing top. After the photos surfaced, Montana took to Instagram to express her shock. “Wow… I don’t even know this man..this is wild y’all I’m seeing it for the time just like y’all,” she wrote.
It turns out Larsa was well aware of the possible scandal on the rise because she reportedly knew Malik was married. Sources say the Minnesota Timberwolves player “played it off that him and Montana were ‘having issues and ending their marriage.’” According to the insider, Larsa didn’t think there was anything wrong. “She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn’t doing anything wrong by hanging out with him,” the insider declared. The socialite also has intentions of continuing her relationship with Malik despite all the drama that has ensued. “Larsa and Malik are still in touch and are planning to see each other again when the news blows over,” the source shared.
For those wondering why Larsa is even entertaining another romance with an NBA player despite still being legally married to Scottie Pippen, it’s because she “likes the attention and doesn’t care how this makes her look,” the insider claimed. Sounds very similar to what the Kardashian-Jenner family said about her after she did that revealing interview against them. Well, Larsa is certainly getting the attention she allegedly wanted.
