Larsa’s Insta status

Speaking of Instagram, Mrs. Pippen still identifies herself as an “NBA wife” in her bio. The divorce is not without its controversies, as rumors have started flying around suggesting that rapper Future caused Scottie and Larsa’s divorce. The rumors started when Scottie Pippen’s wife was spotted hanging out with Future in Miami, as reported by TMZ.

Sources close to Larsa, however, debunked the rumors, saying that while she and Future have been friends for a long time, the relationship between them remains platonic. Future’s representatives echoed the statement, explaining that the rapper has never been interested in dating a married woman.

Instead, the ex-NBA star left Bootsy Bellows nightclub on the Sunset Strip with a couple of hot chicks in tight dresses. Scottie and Larsa have been on much better terms lately — and had appeared to reconcile after he filed for divorce back in October … but court records show the case is still active.

Update on Scottie Pippen’s divorce

Scottie and Larsa’s divorce was still on in August 2017 but in November 2017 they have told TMZ that they have decided to cancel it. Looks like the mediation sessions helped.

Again in November 2018, the news was that Larsa has again filed for the divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” Moreover, she demanded spousal support and properties from Scottie. His lawyer told PEOPLE,

“Mr. Pippen is aware that some members of the press have obtained 911 recording recently made by Ms. Pippen. While these recordings speak for themselves, Ms. Pippen did not make any allegations of physical violence by Mr. Pippen.”
