Since this is the midst of the NBA offseason, a lot of fans’ attention has been drawn to Marcus Jordan and Larsa Pippen’s romantic relationship as well as how Marcus’ father Michael Jordan feels about it. To those who do not know, Marcus is the Chicago Bulls legend’s second child.
Although he never really made a name for himself on the basketball court, Marcus’ relationship status with Larsa Pippen has given him a fair amount of publicity. Especially since she was married to Scottie Pippen an NBA legend who played alongside Michael Jordan.
Many have speculated that MJ didn’t approve of the relationship between Marcus and Larsa. However, we never really found out how Marcus’ mother and Michael’s ex-wife Juanita Vanoy felt about their son’s relationship. With that being said, let us take a look at how Juanita feels about this couple.
Juanita Vanoy supports Marcus Jordan and Larsa Pippen on social media
Many NBA fans have already concluded that Michael Jordan is disapproving of this relationship after he was questioned by the media and answered with an abrupt “no” on the subject of his approval towards his son’s choice of partner. However, many have also opined that Michael is fine with it and simply not making his approval clear to the public.
After all, it would certainly harm his reputation if he proclaimed that his son should continue dating his former teammate’s ex-wife. On the other hand, Juanita has no such restriction and has already expressed support for the growing relationship between Marcus and Larsa.
Or so we were told on an episode of a podcast that the couple engages in called “Separation Anxiety.” There we found out from Marcus that his father was only joking during the previous interview and that his mother is even more supportive of his romantic involvement with Larsa and even tried her hand at social media to convey her feelings.
“My mom, who is new to Instagram. She left a comment, left some hearts on one of our posts. Larsa really, really loved that. Obviously, I am happy to see my mom supporting us…My dad is always kinda go with the flow. But I think my mom, she is obviously supportive…”
It is surprising to find out that Juanita has no problems with Marcus dating a woman older than himself. Nonetheless, we are glad to see that he has his mother’s support on this subject.
