Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen is currently in a relationship with Marcus Jordan, the son of NBA legend Michael Jordan. The situation is especially complicated because Larsa’s ex-husband, Scottie Pippen, was not only a friend of Michael’s but also his teammate. Larsa has acknowledged that the relationship is probably awkward for both Michael and Scottie.
When asked about Larsa dating Marcus, Michael made it clear that he did not approve, stating a firm “No!” It is unclear whether his objection was due to their significant 16-year age difference or the complex web of friendships involved.
In a recent appearance on Jana Kramer’s podcast, Whine Down, Larsa revealed that while she and Marcus do everything together, she has not had the opportunity to hang out with Michael yet. She mentioned that she has only spent time with Marcus’ mother, Juanita, who is Michael’s ex-wife. Larsa described Marcus’ family as being very private and expressed her belief that they were likely skeptical about him appearing on the reality show RHOM.
Larsa and Marcus addressed Michael’s disapproval on their own podcast and shared different perspectives on it. Larsa admitted feeling embarrassed and traumatized by his comments, while Marcus dismissed them as his father being playful and possibly influenced by alcohol. The couple claimed that Michael reached out to them after his comment made headlines to ensure that they didn’t take it the wrong way.
It remains to be seen whether Michael will ever approve of Larsa and Marcus’ relationship, but if they continue dating, there will likely be some uncomfortable family dinners in the future. The dynamics between Larsa, Marcus, Michael, and Scottie certainly add an extra layer of tension to their relationship.
