Claiming she was “told to leave our family home 10 days ago," Montana followed the accusation up by stating, "just like you all I’m pretty confused.”

While Malik's lawyer stated at the time 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. “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.
