Larsa and Scottie Pippen ‘likely to reconcile’
USA - Scottie Pippen shocked many as he filed for divorce last month.
But things may be working out after all between he and Kim Kardashian’s BFF Larsa. The 51-year-old former NBA superstar and 42-year-old stunner may be on the verge of reconciliation according to a Tuesday report from New York Post’s Page Six. A source close to Larsa told the gossip site: ‘I’m fairly certain they’re going to make up... He’s sending her messages. They’re communicating. I don’t think they’re going to pull the trigger. ‘He was saying, “I miss you. Let’s talk.” She’s feeling the same way. When it rains, it pours, but Scottie’s at a different place. She’s at a different place, and they’re just figuring it out.’ A few reasons have even been given for the rift in their relationship as a source close to Scottie told Page six that Larsa’s friendship with celebrities like Kim and Kourtney Kardashian is a bit problematic for him. The insider said: ‘Scottie hates this whole “Kardashian Instagram lifestyle.” [Larsa is] all about clubs and rappers and DJs. He just wants out of that world.’ The former Chicago Bulls player would rather live a lowkey life of playing golf as the source explained: ‘He’s afraid of all the gossip that comes with that Kardashian world she’s in.’ Scottie has also landed a job working for ESPN in Chicago and the source for the gossip site says he loves it there while Larsa prefers their life in Miami.
It was reported by TMZ that Scottie has filed for divorce from Larsa after nearly 20 years of marriage. They have four children together. Soon after a rep for Larsa released a statement to UsWeekly: ‘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.’ ‘There are times when it’s so good, and times when it’s [not]. But you kind of have to make yourself happy first, then you can make the other person happy,’ Larsa said. Scottie added, ‘We’re in it all the way. That’s what makes it work, two people who are willing to commit themselves.’ Scottie has accumulated an estimated lifetime earnings reported at around USD 120 millon. But he has also made bad investments. He unsuccessfully sued his former law firm for mismanaging his money which led to the loss of around USD 27 million of Pippen’s money. He also allegedly spent wildly on planes and mansions. His worth now is reportedly around USD 50m.
