Scottie Pippen's wife, Larsa Pippen, sheds more light on the rumored relationship between her and Michael Jordan's son, Marcus Jordan. Pippen's comments came after a fan heckled the alleged couple at an NFL game between the LA Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday.
According to Complex, Larsa finally broke her silence about her and Marcus. She told The Shade Room that their families were never close despite Michael and Scottie being teammates with the Chicago Bulls. She even revealed that she only met Marcus three years ago.
"I just met him three years ago," Larsa wrote on The Shade Room's post. "I never knew him or his family. I was 21 years old and in college when Scottie played that one year with MJ and we weren't friends with them like everyone thinks."
Larsa Pippen's recent comments shed more light on Scottie's revelation in his memoir "Unguarded" last year. Scottie wrote that he was never close with MJ despite being teammates and winning six championships together.
The rumored relationship between Larsa and Marcus has split people's opinions. It's probably because of the nature of Scottie and Michael's past, as well as their age difference.
One of those people is former NBA player Jalen Rose, who thinks that Larsa should treat Marcus as a nephew rather than a partner.
"Certain relationships used to be off limits," Rose said. "And I, on paper, want everybody to be happy and to live their best life. But, the best thing I can say for her is she should see him as more of a nephew than a mate."
