"Given The Facts And Circumstances"

Malik Beasley is reportedly calling the paternity of his son, Makai Joseph Beasley, into question. The NBA player allegedly underwent a paternity test along with his son last month.


According to Malik’s attorney, Steven A. Haney, “Given the facts and circumstances surrounding these parties’ relationship and lifestyle, it would have been negligent not to have one performed. If he is deemed the biological father, he will comply with the order or the court. The Order was contingent upon paternity being established.”

Malik’s estranged wife, Montana Yao, filed for divorce from her husband after he was caught engaging in what many deemed to be a date night with Larsa Pippen. Malik wrote a letter to his son that gave an apology for the negative press.

“I ain’t perfect and I definitely thought I was … and I apologize for that young bull,” Malik wrote to Makai. “I have made mistakes but have learned from them,” the celebrity dad told his son. “I will make up for the time that I have missed and the struggles I have put you through. You are a young king and you deserve to live that way. Learn from me.”

Malik has never questioned the paternity of his son outside of his divorce proceedings. In fact, the NBA player sent his son well wishes on his second birthday last month.

“No matter what, when I look back at these memories, it brings a different person out of me,” Malik wrote to his little one. “I never wanted or want [to] lose this feeling,” Beasley shared. “I miss holding you, teaching you, and laughing with you.”

“You are my other half and my time is coming,” Malik told Makai. “You will be with me all summer and trust me, I will make up [for] the missed time. With that being said, I love you, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON!”

Makai is Malik Beasley and Montana Yao’s only child. The NBA player has been ordered to pay $6,500 per month in child support to his estranged wife.
