The divorce battle between Malik Beasley and his estranged wife Montana Yao turns even uglier. It was reported that the NBA player questions the paternity of their 2-year-old son, Makai, in new court documents.

Beasley, 24, is contesting the paternity of Makai Joseph Beasley, who was born in March 2019, according to court documents obtained by Page Six on Wednesday. A paternity test was conducted, but the results were unknown leading up to Beasley and Yao’s March 29 court date.
The Timberwolves player’s attorney, Steven A. Hanley, told Us Weekly that the test was “taken last week.”
Yao, 22, claimed earlier this month that Beasley kicked her and their son out of their joint home. She alleged on social media that the duo was bouncing around “hotels and Airbnb’s even moving states” until her parents agreed to help them.
The model also denied she cheated on Beasley, who began dating Pippen while they were still married. Pippen, 46, insisted that she met Beasley after he was separated from Yao, but photos of them in Miami may insinuate otherwise.
“It had nothing to do with me, so I wasn’t thinking anything about it,” Pippen said in February. “If you spent a minute Googling their situation, it wasn’t the ideal situation way before me.”
The paternity test hugely affected the court’s ruling on temporary child support as Montana was denied temporary spousal support on Monday, March 29 after requesting $5,000 per month. “Wife’s request for temporary child support is granted conditioned on Husband becoming adjudicated the child’s father,” the filing read. “Upon the fulfillment of that condition, Husband shall pay Wife $6500/mo. in temporary child support.”
Additionally, Montana was denied her request for $20,000 to pay her attorney’s fees. Her request for a $15,000 advance from the duo’s marital estate has also been deferred.
