Malaysia Pargo Releases Statement On Divorce
Over the weekend news broke that Basketball Wives cast member Malaysia Pargo has filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, Charlotte Bobcats’ player Jannero Pargo. Unbeknownst to most, Malaysia and Jannero had actually been separated since December 2012, with the reality TV star only recently filing formal divorce docs in L.A. County Superior court citing irreconcilable differences. Almost as soon as this news was released, rumors starting coming out of the woodwork about Malaysia being romantically involved with rapper-turned-preacher Mason Betha, a.k.a. Mase, and upon hearing that news we had to reach out to the soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Pargo to see what the deal is.
Though her publicist wouldn’t speak on the dating rumors, we did receive this statement confirming the split:
“Our family is our top priority and while we have decided to amicably go our separate ways, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time. We are both committed parents and plan to remain friends as we co-parent our three children. At this time we do not wish to discuss the details of our divorce.”
According to TMZ, Malaysia is seeking sole legal and physical custody of her and Jannero’s 7-year-old and 3-year-old twins, allowing visitation for him. She’s also requesting spousal support and coverage of her legal fees throughout the divorce proceedings. Here’s hoping this won’t turn into a bitter custody battle.
