Larsa Pippen Is All Over the Internet: Who Is She Exactly? Larsa Pippen, one of the stars of “The Real Housewives of Miami,” is clearly all over the gossip pages on the internet? But who is she exactly?
Well, the last name might be familiar to NBA fans.
Larsa Pippen was married to NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen from 1997 to 2021, having four children, including current NBA player Scotty Pippen, Jr.
In addition to “Real Housewives,” Larsa Pippen has appeared multiple times on the Kardashians’ different reality shows and is known as a fashion icon.
Now, she is dating the son of one of her ex-husband’s most famous teammates – creating a sensation across my entertainment and celebrity websites.
Larsa Pippen: Explained
According to E! Online, Larsa Pippen is now “Instagram-official” with Marcus Jordan, the son of Michael Jordan.
The picture included the notion “checks over stripes”; according to Page Six, this was a reference to choosing Nike (with which the Jordan family has long been associated) over Adidas.
Scottie Pippen also endorsed Nike for the majority of his career.
Pippen and Jordan played together with the Chicago Bulls from 1987 through Jordan’s first retirement in 1993, and again from 1995 through 1998, winning six championships together.
Jordan retired after that season, although he returned to the Washington Wizards three years later, while Pippen played the rest of his career with Houston and Portland, before returning to Chicago at the end.
Larsa Pippen and the younger Jordan were photographed on Instagram in what was tagged as the “Trophy Room,” in front of various sneakers and a giant Michael Jordan Bulls jersey. The Trophy Room is an online boutique that Marcus Jordan, a former college basketball player, runs.
US Weekly had reported last fall that they were a couple, but they hadn’t posted a picture on Instagram until now.
Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen Were Rivals
According to US Magazine, the former Bulls teammates have been feuding of late.
Pippen was critical of Jordan in his 2021 memoir, “Unguarded.”
“They glorified Michael Jordan while not giving nearly enough praise to me and my proud teammates,” Pippen said in the book, in reference to the “Last Dance” docuseries, about the Bulls’ 1990s dynasty, which debuted in 2020. “Michael deserved a large portion of the blame. The producers had granted him editorial control of the final product. The doc couldn’t have been released otherwise. He was the leading man and the director.”
