Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan have been fairly open and honest about their relationship with the public. It has been a year romance rumors first ignited between the pair. But things have been going very smooth despite the backlash they’ve faced throughout their relationship. But the reality television star initially didn’t think of dating Marcus at all.
Lately, the rumors of a potential marriage have been getting more confirmation from the couple themselves. A few months ago, the paparazzi were able to capture a photo of Larsa and Marcus in a car. In the picture, Larsa was not so subtly flashing a ring on her finger. Everyone believed that Marcus had already proposed to her but they confirmed that it was just a promise ring.
Larsa Pippen, despite being significantly older than Marcus Jordan, is head over heels for him. She has expressed on multiple occasions that the relationships almost feels like it’s meant to. They confirmed that a marriage bells are ringing and that they plan on having a destination wedding. But what about the history that their families have with each? These are some questions they answered on a recent episode of Pablo Torre Finds Out.
Larsa Pippen was skeptical to date Marcus Jordan because of the history their last names entail
Larsa Pippen recently revealed a few reasons why she felt it was going to be impossible to date Marcus Jordan. She said, “I think for us, because we were friends before, I just knew it would be hard for us to date.” Pippen felt that it would’ve been hard as they were really good friends. And getting romantically involved wouldn’t been the best option for them.
“I just knew it was impossible. Like how could I date Marcus? It’s impossible. And then the more time we spent together it was like the pros… there were so many pros, it was like a list of a billion,” said Pippen. She went on to say, “And the cons were our last names.” However, she went on to claim that it didn’t matter what history their families had. She feels that she has the right to be with anyone as long as she’s happy.
Based on what she said, it is obvious that Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan realize why fans were opposed to the idea of them dating. Larsa is Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife and Marcus is Michael Jordan‘s eldest son.
Mike and Scottie were formerly teammates, however, their relationship turned stale over the years. MJ’s The Last Dance documentary was what drove a wedge between them. Pippen didn’t like the fact that Jordan was put on a pedestal and not the rest of his Chicago Bulls teammates.
