Scottie Pippen has shot (down his wife) and scored (a divorce).
The former Chicago Bulls star filed for divorce from his wife of 19 years on Tuesday, with Larsa Pippen being notified of the filing on Tuesday.
The latter is best known for her stint on The Real Housewives of Miami, while also being a very close friend of ex-sex tape star Kim Kardashian.
The couple got married in 1997.
They have four children together: Sophia Pippen, Scotty Pippen Jr., Justin Pippen and Preston Pippen.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, there is a prenuptial agreement in place between the stars. So this should be a relatively amicable split.
Scottie even wants Larsa to receive child support for their four children, although the amount is yet to be determined.
The six-time NBA legend and the former Real Housewives cast member were spotted together at a New York Fashion Week event last month because daughter Sophia was modeling in a children’s fashion show.
Both halves of the twosome were wearing their wedding rings at the time.
But things change.
Back in 2012, for example, the Pippens talked about their relationship with Chicago Splash.
“There are times when it’s so good, and times when it’s [not]. But you kind of have to make yourself happy first, then you can make the other person happy,” Larsa said, while Scottie chimed in with:
“We’re in it all the way. That’s what makes it work, two people who are willing to commit themselves.”
In recent weeks, Larsa had been seen out on many occasions with Future.
But sources tell TMZ that she and the rapper are not a romantic item. They’ve simply been friends for a long time.
The site adds that Scottie has been traveling a lot for business and the stars have simply drifted apart. It happens.
In response to this unfortunate news, Larsa has issued the following statement through her rep:
“After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage.
“Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their four beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. …
“She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”
We send our best wishes to both halves of the soon-to-be-ex couple.
