The Hot Girls of Yesteryear are coming for their things. Chyvette Valentine, a woman who claims to have maintained a romantic relationship with former NBA player Scottie Pippin is suing the basketball great for the money she spent during their years-long tryst.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Valentine claims she dated Pippen from 1987-1993.
During that time she traveled when Pippen was playing outside of Chicago. As a result, she spent quite a bit of money on hotels, cars, gas, food, parking etc. Valentine said that during their relationship, Pippen promised to reimburse her. But she never saw any of that money.
Hence the lawsuit.
She is suing for $9,999 in small claims court. Valentine claims she spent more than this but this is the largest amount one is allowed to request in small claims court.
Valentine claims she was Pippen’s first girlfriend when he moved to Chicago. During their affair, Scottie was married to his first wife Karen McCollum. The couple married in 1988 and divorced two years later. Prior to their marriage, they had a son together, Antron Pippen, in 1987.
Valentine said she did not know Pippen was married. She did suspect that he had a child when she discovered cases of baby formula in his home. But he told her that they belonged to his sister. Eventually, Pippen came clean—while they were having sex on Valentine’s Day in 1988.
I doubt this woman will see any money, unless she has some type of correspondence from Pippen proving that he said he would reimburse her. Otherwise she might have to take this L. A part of me wonders if she would have had better luck just picking up the phone and asking for the cash. Pippen is not a star player in the NBA anymore, but I’m sure he has $9,999 he could throw Ms. Valentine’s way. Sounds like she put in some real work.
