All The Facts You Need To Know About Malaysia Pargo’s Divorce
The Blissful Beginning
While details about her biological family are not publicly known, Malaysia Pargo’s marriage has always been under the spotlight from the beginning. Malaysia met her ex-husband Jannero Pargo, a professional basketball player when she was just 22. They started dating and it wasn’t long before they decided to take things to the next level.

They had their first child, a son named after his dad in 2007 while the twins came along in 2011.
How Things Fell Apart
Malaysia and Jannero couldn’t get their happily ever after. It was indeed sad when their marital bliss came crashing in 2012, leading to the couple’s eventual separation by the end of the year.

The court ruled that she gets half of her ex-husband’s pension plan, half of his savings plan worth $410,000, and $15,380 in child support/child care, an exclusive report by Bossip revealed. The divorce verdict also granted her ownership of their Mercedes Benz G550 (2015 model), and access to three transaction accounts as well as a money market account. Malaysia Pargo also received the full rights of her business, the 3 Beats LLC as well as the rights to keep all the money and property (in form of furniture and jewelry) she acquired after their pre-divorce separation. The ex-couple however, share custody of their kids.
Ex-Mrs Pargo has, however, regretted her separation and divorce from Jannero Pargo. She recently made the heart-touching revelation on an episode of Couples Court TV. According to her, she regrets failing to try counseling with her husband before calling it quits, adding that it would possibly have saved their union because they still love each other very much.
