*Unfortunately, after 19 years of marriage, things didn’t end well between former NBA star Scottie Pippen and his wife Larsa.
Now we’re finding out that the authorities were called to Pippen’s home twice in the past 3 weeks for domestic disturbances, according to TMZ Sports.
The site is reporting that the Ft. Lauderdale PD first responded to a call from Pippen’s home on October 2nd and found Larsa Pippen waiting in her car in front of the home.
She told cops she was involved in a “heated verbal argument” with Scottie but insisted it NEVER GOT PHYSICAL.
Scottie told police she could come back inside and there would be no issues and even offered to leave if it made Larsa feel more comfortable. Larsa decided to leave and stay somewhere else that night. No arrests were made.
The next incident took place on October 4. Cops were once again called to the home for a domestic disturbance. The details are unclear at this point — but it appears no one was arrested.
By now you know how this story ends. Scottie Pippen filed for divorce on October 18. Meanwhile, Larsa says she’s hopeful the two will be able to maintain a good relationship for the sake of their 4 kids.
Here’s what we reported earlier …
*It’s game over for Scottie and Larsa Pippen.
The former NBA star filed divorce docs in Florida earlier this week seeking to end his marriage of 19 years, according to TMZ.
The couple, who have four children together, was just photographed in September at New York Fashion Week, where their 7-year-old daughter Sophia was modeling in a show.
The couple has a prenup in place, according to the divorce documents obtained by TMZ. Pippen also wants Larsa to receive child support for their four kids, though the amount is yet to be determined.
Larsa, a cast member of The Real Housewives of Miami,” issued a statement through her rep:
“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.”
Larsa and the kids (Sophia, Scotty Jr., Justin and Preston) were in Europe on vacation earlier this week.
