Earlier this year, Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan made their relationship public. Larsa, a star of ‘The Real Housewives of Miami,’ had been married to Scottie Pippen for decades before their divorce in January. Marcus, on the other hand, is the son of NBA legend Michael Jordan. The union of these two figures has set the NBA world abuzz.
The news of Marcus’ romance with Larsa sent shockwaves through the NBA community, especially for Michael. Insiders suggest that Michael views this relationship as his worst nightmare, fearing that Marcus will eventually marry Larsa, making him a stepfather to Scottie Pippen‘s children.
Furthermore, Insiders have stated, “Scottie and Larsa are still friendly, and Scottie figures anything that gets under Michael’s skin is a victory for him“. Thereby adding more spice to this relationship. It’s a scenario that seems straight out of a basketball-themed soap opera. In an attempt to stop the budding romance, Michael reportedly urged Marcus to end the relationship, accusing him of stirring the pot.
Is Scottie Pippen going to attend his ex-wife Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan’s wedding?
Marcus Jordan sparked engagement rumors when he hinted at their plans to wed. When asked about their future by TMZ, he mentioned they were actively searching for a wedding location, indicating that a wedding was “In the works“.
Larsa further fueled the speculation by posting an Instagram photo with the caption “It’s in the works.” The couple, who first got together at the end of 2022, officially confirmed their relationship in January.
In a recent episode of their “Separation Anxiety” podcast, Larsa and Marcus opened up about their engagement rumors and their plans for a destination wedding. Marcus also revealed that he had given Larsa a promise ring, symbolizing their commitment.
Larsa spoke about how she feels that Michael won’t be attending the wedding. Although she said in the context of him preferring to have a private life. Thereby, refraining from a wedding that would be telecast. However, fans have been doubtful about this since the very start because of the relationship between him and Scottie.
Michael has previously indicated his disapproval of the wedding by saying a simple yet powerful ‘NO.’ But Marcus came out later and mentioned that his dad might have been just messing around. But Scottie chose to remain silent. Furthermore, Marcus revealed how the Bulls star reached out to him after engagement rumors, but there are no conversations about Scottie.
Although there is no confirmation about whether Scottie will be gracing the wedding of his ex-wife and Marcus. It is expected that he won’t come as the strained relationship between him and Michael would hold him back. Additionally, attending the wedding of his own ex-wife is not a usual thing to happen.
The relationship between the two has been an ongoing drama. With new episodes coming as the updates about them come forward. With time we will get to witness how the wedding will sit with the Jordan and Pippen family.
