It's over! Larsa Pippen has called it quits with NBA player Malik Beasley just four months into their relationship. The duo caused chaos when they were first spotted holding hands in November because the Minnesota Timberwolves star was already married.

It wasn't their 22-year age gap either. Apparently, Larsa decided she had enough of the drama.

"Larsa decided to distance herself from the drama,” a source told Us Weekly. “He was going through a lot and the timing wasn’t right.”

His wife at the time, model Montana Yao might agree.

 “Many people assumed it was serious when in fact it was not," the insider told the outlet of Larsa and Malik's short-lived relationship. They added that the two "were friends first" and they are “still in communication.”

Despite spending Valentine's Day together, the source tells Us Weekly that Larsa decided called it off shortly after. 

Breakup speculation began last month when the two unfollowed each other on social media and Larsa was seen with another guy.

The 46-year-old "Real Housewives of Miami" star sparked a firestorm when she was first seen with the 24-year-old NBA player last year. After photos surfaced of them holding hands in Miami, it was soon reported that Malik was married. 

Days after the PDA pics, Montana Yao filed for divorce from the athlete. She took to Instagram to reveal her side of the story, claiming she was “told to leave our family home 10 days ago and just like you all I’m pretty confused.”

While Malik's lawyer stated the NBA player wanted to "put this matter behind him," Montana wasn't going out so easy.

“Mr. Beasley forgot to inform Montana Yao, his long-time partner and wife, of his plans to leave his family ‘behind,’” her attorneys claimed in a statement at the time. “Instead, he put Montana and their young son out of the family home while he stayed behind to live there with friends.”

Malik and Montana share one child together, a two-year-old son named Makai. As of this post, Montana has not chimed in about Larsa and Malik's split.
