    Since that would require new physics the answer is "We don't know".

    For your question to be answerable you'd need to find a way to violate a number of conservation laws that have not been observed to be broken by any interactions we know of. Since we don't know anything about how these decays it is rather hard to make meaningful statements based on their relative probabilities of happening.
