Larsa Pippen might create another fissure between legendary former teammates Michael Jordan and her ex-husband, Scottie Pippen. Larsa was spotted with Marcus Jordan, the son of His Airness, and now the rumors are flying wild.
The ex-basketball wife was in Miami, stepping out and getting close with Jordan’s second son in Miami. On Sunday, the two were spotted at popular eatery Zuma, a Japanese restaurant in downtown Miami. The notorious social media influencer turned heads when she appeared on a double date with the younger Jordan and another couple at their restaurant table for lunch.
Although there were reportedly no apparent public displays of affection between them, Larsa appeared to seek a low profile once she realized that people were taking pictures of her and Jordan.

Scottie Pippen has been very vocal about disliking his former teammate after the documentary “The Last Dance” was released. In Pippen’s new autobiography, “Unguarded,” he keeps it honest about his thoughts on his forever basketball partner Michael Jordan. Pippen felt that Jordan, who he claims had “editorial control of the final project,” used the documentary as a personal propaganda piece.
“My years in Chicago, beginning as a rookie in the fall of 1987, were the most rewarding of my career: twelve men coming together as one, fulfilling the dreams we had as kids in playgrounds across the land when all we needed was a ball, a basket, and our imagination,” said Pippen in the book. “To be a member of the Bulls during the 1990s was to be part of something magical. For our times and for all time.
“Except Michael was determined to prove to the current generation of fans that he was larger-than-life during his day — and still larger than LeBron James, the player many consider his equal, if not superior. So Michael presented his story, not the story of the ‘Last Dance,’ as our coach, Phil Jackson, billed the 1997–98 season once it became obvious the two Jerrys (owner Jerry Reinsdorf and general manager Jerry Krause) were intent on breaking up the gang no matter what happened.”
Pippen has been known to date younger men with high profiles. With Larsa being 48 years old, Marcus Jordan is not that much younger than her at 31 years old, when she has reportedly dated younger in the past. She has been linked romantically to 25-year-old Harry Jowsey, a reality show star, and Ben Simmons, a 26-year-old player for the Brooklyn Nets. Interestingly, both are from Australia.
Late last year, she was also connected to Malik Beasley, the 25-year-old shooting guard for the Utah Jazz. The controversy came with it when Scottie Pippen reportedly called Beasley a “loser” after being sentenced to 120 days in jail in February 2021. Larsa revealed the slight on an episode of the “Real Housewives of Miami.”
“When Malik got 90 days or something in jail [Scottie] sent it to me,” Pippen told her “RHOM” co-star Lisa Hochstein. “He’s like, ‘Go ahead, keep talking to these losers.'”
Beasley and Pippen dated for four months before they split, but during their relationship, Beasley pleaded guilty to one felony count of threats of violence after being arrested for pointing a gun at a family outside of his home in September 2020 when he was still a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. He was ultimately sentenced to 120 days in jail and served 78 days.
However, the real messiness was that he chose to link with Larsa while still being involved with his estranged wife and child’s mother, Montana Yao. The revelation that he was dating Larsa led to her filing for divorce.
With Larsa now seen with Marcus Jordan, the old beef between Scottie and MJ might rise by dating proxy.
