Larsa Pippen (left) Googled her current boyfriend, Malik Beasley, before she met him. The 46-year-old Cougar insisted the 24-year-old NBA player and model Montana Yao were already separated before he and Pippen started knocking the boots.

"We had spoken about it. It wasn't a secret," she said on Saturday's episode of Hollywood Unlocked.

"A lot of people are not happy in their situations and they don't want to jump ship until they see someone they like," Pippen explained. "You don't want to just shake your kids up because you might never meet someone that you actually like. You’re in a state of living in the same place, but not really together."

Yao filed for divorce from the Minnesota Timberwolves player in December. They share 23-month-old son, Makai.

Yao previously accused Beasley of cheating on her with Pippen, which the former "Real Housewives of Miami" star denied.

Pippen admitted she Googled Beasley prior to dating him and said she found out "they had issues before" she met him.

"[Their breakup] had nothing to do with me, so I wasn't thinking anything about it," Pippen said. "If you spent a minute Googling their situation, it wasn't the ideal situation way before me."
