Is Future To Blame For Scottie Pippen’s Divorce?
You may have heard Scottie Pippen and his wife Larsa are headed for divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage, but what you may not know is Future is the alleged culprit behind the split.
According to TMZ, sources on both Scottie and Larsa’s side say she’s been “jumping on Future’s private jet, traveling with him to various cities, including Vegas last month. Sources from both sides also say Larsa and Future were very ‘cozy’ recently at Komodo nightclub in Miami.” Still, Larsa’s sources say whatever’s been going on between her and Future since they met at the Haute Living Color Reveal Party in Miami in August is “casual.” It also might be vengeful since they shared the canoodling didn’t starting until after “Scottie was openly flirting with an actress last Summer, and she felt disrespected.”
Infidelity may just be one piece of the dysfunctional pie however, as cops were called to the Pippen’s Ft. Lauderdale residence twice in one week — on October 1 and October 4 — prior to Scottie’s divorce filing October 18, Entertainment Tonight (ET) confirmed. TMZ says the cause for both calls was domestic disturbance, with Larsa telling police during the first incident that she was involved in a “heated verbal argument” but Scottie never got violent. Details of the second incident are unclear but there were no arrests.
After news of the divorce filing spread, Larsa’s rep told ET:
“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 four 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.”
Interestingly, an additional source told ET on October 22 that “They’re thinking maybe they can work this out. They’ve been together so long. She received a really sweet text from him this morning. They have a very passionate relationship. They really are meant to be together.”
Scottie and Larsa married in 1997 and have four children together, Sophia, Justin, Preston, and Scottie Jr.
