The last month has been more than testing for the Pippen couple as 911 had to intervene to sort out marital problems no less than two times in the recent past. But things got worse with the Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa’s divorce.
Thedailymail.co.uk reported that a hysterical Larsa said to the police personnel attending the 911 call “Can you send someone over my husband is getting really aggressive with me!” The second altercation between the erstwhile couple reportedly had Scottie fuming and smashing electronics, his phone to be precise. According to celebrity observers, Larsa called up the cops again that day this time saying that her husband had “gotten crazy again.”
All these histrionics were followed by Scottie Pippen and wife, Larsa’s divorce filing after over 20 years of marriage on the 18th of October. Now, the couple is at loggerheads over the custody of their children and of course their fortune reportedly worth around $50 million.
Scottie Pippen’s lawyer Roberta G. Stanley made the following statement to PEOPLE after tapes of the calls surfaced in the public vicinity- “Mr. Pippen is aware that some members of the press have obtained 911 recordings recently made by Ms. Pippen. While these recordings speak for themselves, Ms. Pippen did not make any allegations of physical violence by Mr. Pippen. Although Mr. and Ms. Pippen both have public personas, their divorce is a private matter. Mr. Pippen requests that the press respects his privacy and that of his family during this time.”
To the relief of the lawyers, the couple agreed that they had made a prenup in 1997. But according to Larsa about a year or so back they decided by unanimity to nullify it.
Larsa has real doubts whether Scottie will actually pay her after the proceedings of the court have been finished. But not to be left behind she wants a part of Scottie’s life insurance policy cakes, just in case. Watch out for more updates to the rather ugly Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa’s divorce.
