Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles during the 90s — an impressive feat that has been highlighted in the ESPN docuseries The Last Dance. (Not to mention, he played on the U.S. Men's Olympic team, which won a gold medal.) Given the resurgence in popularity surrounding Scottie's career, plenty of fans have been curious about what his personal life looks like since retiring in 2005. Specifically, many want to know: Are Scottie and Larsa Pippen still married?
Larsa and Scottie Pippen share four children.
Real Housewives of Miami star (and Kim Kardashian's BFF) Larsa Pippen is Scottie's second wife. Larsa and Scottie got married in 1997 and welcomed four children: Scotty Jr. in 2000, Preston in 2002, Justin in 2005, and Sophia in 2008.
Sophia seems to have inherited her mother's affinity for reality TV, as she appeared on Dancing with the Stars in 2018. Meanwhile, Scotty Jr. possesses some impressive basketball skills like his father before him. He's a point guard for Vanderbilt University in the SEC; he was even named to the 2020 All-SEC Freshman Team after ending his first season with an average of 12 points per game.
Larsa and Scottie Pippen are in the process of finalizing their divorce.
In October 2016, Scottie filed for divorce from Larsa. The retired NBA star accused his wife of cheating with rapper Future at the time — however, Larsa repeatedly denied these claims. (That hasn't stopped many of Future's fan's from assuming that his collaboration with Moneybagg Yo on the track "Federal Feds" is about his rumored affair with Larsa.)
"After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage," a representative for Larsa told E! News in November 2018. "Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect."
Scottie and Larsa ended up calling off their divorce at that time — and they seemed to be making things work in their relationship for a while. That is, until Larsa filed for divorce two years later in November 2018.
"I was married to him for 20 years, I did everything for him and my family. People change and that's what really happened," Larsa tweeted in April 2020, according to TMZ Sports. "Most people can't even imagine being in a relationship for a week so I know it's beyond imagination. Cheating wasn't the problem."
According to reports, Larsa and Scottie are close to finalizing their divorce.
So are Scottie and Larsa still together today? No. But are they technically still married at this point? Until their divorce is finalized, we suppose they're legally still husband and wife. However, the chances of reconciliation appear to be slim to none at this point — and their romantic relationship seems to be very much in the past.
