*Scottie Pippen, according to TMZ, has filed multiple lawsuits against the media for supposedly unfairly portraying him as a financial mess. So every outlet, including CBSsports.com and CNBC.com, that reported he went bankrupt is going to pay.
The former athlete claims he hasn’t been worth less than $40,000,000 in the last 10 years, if you can believe that.
Pippen filed the suit in Illinois and claims that the named media outlets committed “foul libel” and falsely accused him of being bankrupt.
“Scottie never filed bankruptcy and indeed has a substantial net worth, which has not been less than approximately $40,000,000 in the last ten years.”
In a CNBC.com article, the athlete is featured as on of 15 athletes gone bankrupt.
Arizona State University’s publication was sited in the lawsuit as well. He claims that he was tagged as a person who had gone bankrupt in a law blog operated by the school.
For this “false” information and defamation of his reputation, Pippen is asking for at least $1 million in damages.
Sounds like a hissy fit and an excuse to take someone’s money.
