“Dating someone’s wife you grew up watching?”: Michael Jordan’s Son Faces Backlash For Being Spotted With Larsa Pippen, Ex-wife Of Basketball Legend Scottie Pippen

Scottie Pippin and Michael Jordan were THE teammates. The two basketball stars, who played for Chicago Bulls, complemented each other very ably. The Chicago Bulls team that they were a part of was a team to be reckoned with. But over time, things changed.

However, in some twisted, convoluted manner, the Jordans and Pippens of this world continue to be close to each other. And the closeness between the two names has taken a different form, one which must be rather awkward for the original duo.

Scottie Pippen’s wife, Larsa Pippen broke up with him last year. And since then, she has been on a kind of spree. The 47-year-old since then has been seeing fresh blood left, right and center. She has dated a host of stars in their 20s, including the likes of Ben Simmons, Harry Jowsey, and a married Malik Beasley.

But there has been an addition to the list of young stars she has started dating. And a notable one at that. If one were to trust pictures of the two, then Larsa Pippen is dating a Jordan, Marcus Jordan to be precise – Michael Jordan’s son. And they could very well be on a double date with some other couple.

Having a date in the City

Larsa Pippen was seen at Zuma on Sunday with the son of the basketball legend. The two were in a downtown Japanese restaurant on a double date with another couple at their table, as TMZ claims. They were sitting down next to each other, having lunch and the photos also showed them leaving the restaurant together, eventually.

It had been reported that Larsa Pippen was in town with her female friends. She had the task of hosting some sort of retail store reopening at Aventure Mall. But guess that’s not the only thing she was here to do. She was also on a date with the 31-year-old, Marcus Jordan.

Larsa Pippen trying to stay out of the public eye

Though it has been rumored that the two were seeing each other, they didn’t engage in any outward display of affection. Eyewitnesses were quick to point out the lack of PDA between them. But they were also quick to point out that it might be the result of Pippen getting aware of the presence of people who were looking to snap up their pics. After all, they would naturally want to avoid getting caught in the public eye.

Larsa Pippen and Scottie Pippen got married in 1997. Marcus was already 7 years old at that point. So it is understandable why Pippen wouldn’t want to be spotted with someone who once used to call her Aunt Pippen. It will also be a hard pill for the OG Pippen-Jordan combination to swallow. And Twitter gets it.

Everyone had their theories for the two getting together. Some put it down to the thrill of the age difference. Some put it down to questionable parenting. And some pin it on dumb old fate.

It remains to be seen if this awkwardness does make an impact on the nascent relationship, or if there really is a relationship.
