Larsa Pippen told police she fears Scottie
USA - News that all was not well in the marriage of NBA superstar Scottie Pippen and his wife, Larsa, broke at the beginning of the month when police were called to the couple’s $11 million Fort Lauderdale home twice for domestic incidents. TMZ Sports added that the couple are now battling over their reported $50 million fortune, citing divorce documents. Larsa claims that a prenup, signed in 1997 with terms that favored Scottie, was nullified a year ago in a joint agreement by the husband and wife. She is demanding spousal support, the family home and school tuition fees for their four children. Larsa also wants the kids to stay in Florida, while Scottie wants to move them to Chicago. Larsa is also seeking to use Scottie’s life insurance policy as collateral in case he does not pay her after they split. Her 911 calls occurred on the heels of charges of infidelity on both sides. Pippen, 51, was rumored to be romantically involved with a Sports Illustrated model, insiders claimed to DailyMail. com. The allegations about the basketball champ’s extramarital dalliance came a week after he filed for divorce from second wife Larsa, 42, following rumors that she too was having a fling with rapper Future. ‘It’s a real nightmare,’ an insider told DailyMail. com. ‘It’s like World War III and they’re completely at odds. He’s accusing her of being crazy. ‘Basically, it’s really ugly right now. He’s doing the whole custody thing to try to use lawyers and do whatever he can to screw with her.’ The insider added: ‘He’s acting like that to get back at her basically, as payback for the affair [with Future]. The Pippens have been married for almost 20 years and, since their 1997 wedding, have gone on to have four children together – Sophia, Justin, Preston and Scottie Jr. The couple are now set to battle it out for custody of the quartet with Pippen asking for ‘ultimate responsibility’ for the children in the papers filed last week.
