Do Scottie and Larsa Pippen get along now after their divorce?

Larsa Pippen became the WAG of all WAGs (and “Hottest NBA Wife According to the New York Daily News”) in 1997 when she tied the knot with NBA player Scottie Pippen. The couple had four children and seemed to have a wonderful life together … anyway for a while Scottie stunned the crowds when he filed for divorce in October 2016, according to Differences. “It is with deep sadness that Scottie and I announce that we are legally separating. We both tried very hard for a long time to make our marriage work, and ultimately decided that it was best if we lived separate lives,” she later told TMZ of the decision to split for good. “We have so many amazing memories together, remain best friends and love each other very much. Our four children have always been our priority and for their sake we ask for as much privacy as possible for our family at this sensitive time.”

Fast-forward to December 2021 and it was official: the Pippens were divorced. But how do the former spouses get along today? The answer might surprise you.

Besties for Resties!

During a February 2022 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Larsa Pippen told host Andy Cohen that everything was fine between her and her ex-husband Scottie Pippen. “We’re best friends,” she explained matter-of-factly. “We are the same parents.” But that’s not all. Larsa also had her former husband’s back on the controversial basketball documentary The Last Dance, which essentially portrayed Scottie as Robin from Michael Jordan’s Batman. “Scottie wasn’t portrayed as well as he should have been because I feel like he was basically the team. I know I’m biased, but honestly he really was,” Larsa said. “Scottie won without Michael, but Michael didn’t win without Scottie. So credit has to be given to Scottie. Just saying,” she added.

Larsa Pippen claimed Scottie Pippen was used to controlling the narrative.

Larsa Pippen and Scottie Pippen weren’t always on the same page.

During Season 4 of Real Housewives of Miami, Larsa let it all hang out while discussing her impending divorce with Scottie. Per Page Six, the Miami housewife revealed to colleague Alexia Echevarria that the estranged spouses were at odds over selling their Florida residence. According to Larsa, after she pressured Scottie into selling the family home, Scottie sought revenge by demanding that her daughter Sophia be sent back to Los Angeles. “I was traumatized,” Larsa recalls. “If he doesn’t get his way, he punishes me. He’s like The Punisher.” Later in her confessional, Larsa addressed the house drama. “It’s like the last bit of control he has over me and the kids. He’s just punishing me for getting him to sell the house.” She also claimed that her ex “was used to controlling the narrative.” Spoiler alert: The former couple finally dumped the luxury Florida dig … worth $10.5 million, according to the New York Post.
