In nearly two decades of playing in the NBA, where he is widely known for his time with the Chicago Bulls, winning six NBA championships with Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen is about to take out one of his titles, from married to divorced.
Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa Pippen have been together for 19 years, and according to a report by TMZ, a rep for Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa Pippen said:
“After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage.”
“Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect.”
“She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”
However, if there’s one thing celebrities can’t afford, it is just that- privacy. And despite the “normal” approach to the legal process of things, rumors start to swell and follow the emotionally beleaguered coupled.
Naturally, people wonder why they broke up after being together for so long. Did they reach a point of ennui, a plateau in their relationship?
Rumors swirl that a third party is involved between Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa Pippen- rapper Future.
Larsa and rapper Future have been reportedly spending lots of time together, and it is yet unclear if they have more than a friendly relationship. Or, could Scottie Pippen has been tired of her giving so much attention than needed to the Future? As a wife, shouldn’t she limit her extracurricular activities and focus more on her family?
According to a report by E! Online none of those rumors are true. Mutual friends say rapper Future “has nothing to do with it.”
“Scottie Pippen and Larsa have been separated for quite some time living separate lives. Scottie has been residing in Chicago, where his businesses are while Larsa has been living in Miami full time raising their children.”
