Now that their relationship is out in the open, Larsa Pippen can't avoid questions about her romance with Marcus Jordan. The 48-year-old Real Housewives of Miami star was catapulted into controversy after she shared that she sparked a love affair with Michael Jordan's 32-year-old son. This undoubtedly caused a stir, considering Larsa was once married to Michael's former Chicago Bulls teammate, Scottie Pippen, and shares four children with him. Scottie and Michael have been at odds for decades, and there is no love lost between the two.
Larsa initially denied dating Marcus, especially as their 16-year age difference came under criticism. However, the pair have grown more comfortable with sharing their love with the public. They've appeared in videos showing off their secret handshake and are often captured by hounding paparazzi following them at every turn. Recently, Larsa appeared on the reunion special for Real Housewives of Miami, and she was in the hot seat as she was questioned about her romance.
Larsa Pippen Dodges Uncomfortable Questions
Although she's become laxer about speaking about her new romance, Larsa seemed squeamish by this particular line of questioning. Someone wanted to know if she would hyphenate her name if she and Marcus were married. "I would definitely change my last name for whomever I married, that's for sure," she answered. Yet, she wasn't as open when inquiring minds asked about Michael Jordan. They wanted to know if she ever spent time with Michael while married to Scottie.
"I mean, I don't really want to talk about - I want to talk about Marcus and I. I feel like I'm comfortable talking about Marcus and I," she said. Larsa touched on the topic when she and Marcus visited Way Up with Angela Yee. "We actually met at a party four years ago. And I feel like a lot of people want to like, spin things. Like, 'Oh, they've known each other their whole life!' I'm like, 'By the way, we did not.'" She claimed she and Marcus didn't interact during Scottie and Michael's glory days. "We missed that era."
