*Scottie and Larsa Pippen’s divorce filing comes amid rumors that he’s sleeping around and with other women and her friendship with hip-hop star Future is suspect, according to sources. But a rep for Larsa, a former “Real Housewife of Miami” who has four kids with Pippen, insists the split happened after a fight over his desire to move to Chicago for a job with ESPN. Page Six reports that despite reports of bickering and distrust within the marriage, the couple could still reconcile.
The rep for Larsa told us a few days ago, “The tension between [Scottie and Larsa] started months ago during playoffs when Scottie brought another woman to a playoff game. Scottie has been married to Larsa for almost two decades and has had no problems with her social media.” Her rep would not comment on gossip about her friendship with Future, although sources in the rapper’s camp dismissed them as “false rumors.”
But another source close to Pippen said of Larsa’s friendship with Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, “Scottie hates this whole ‘Kardashian Instagram lifestyle.’ [Larsa is] all about clubs and rappers and DJs. He just wants out of that world.” Pippen “just wants to play golf and stay low-key,” the source added. “He’s afraid of all the gossip that comes with that Kardashian world she’s in.”

Despite all the drama, Larsa’s rep added on Monday night, “I’m fairly certain they’re going to make up . . . He’s sending her messages. They’re communicating. I don’t think they’re going to pull the trigger. He was saying, ‘I miss you. Let’s talk.’ She’s feeling the same way. When it rains, it pours, but Scottie’s at a different place. She’s at a different place, and they’re just figuring it out.”
Her rep added, “I believe he took a new job in Chicago working with ESPN as an analyst for the Chicago Bulls. It’s a job-related thing, and he’s always preferred Chicago over Miami, so that’s always been an issue, but that’s nothing new. He wants to reside fully in Chicago and she loves Miami. They’ve been texting nonstop. And she’s like, ‘Is this really how it’s going to end? We’ve been through so much together.’ She was a little bit caught off guard [by his divorce filing].”
In Scottie’s divorce filing, not only did the ex-NBA star file for full custody of their kids, he also reportedly asked the court if he could deny paying alimony.
We don’t think Larsa is eager to give up the lavish lifestyle she’s grown accustomed to.
