Malik, 24, took to Instagram to pour his heart out to his baby mama, after leaving her and his young son for a woman twice his age.

He shared a throwback photo that showed his family after his son was born.

Malik wrote:

“I [want to] say sorry for putting you in the situation you were put in the last few months.. my head wasn’t [where] it was supposed to be.. I was looking for more when it was right here that whole time.”

He added:

“I’m telling the world and you that there’s no body like you for me.. for the record I was the one who ended my last relationship off the fact that there is no one like you.”


Montana was “blindsided” and “shocked” when photos of Malik holding hands with Larsa went viral last year.
