Last week, we reported that Larsa and Scottie Pippen are headed for divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage.
As a member of the dominant Jordan-era Chicago Bulls, Pippen is a bonafide NBA legend.
Larsa is famous in her own right as one of the original cast members of The Real Housewives of Miami.
So perhaps it was inevitable that their split would serve as tabloid fodder.
But Scottie and Larsa’s breakup is proving much more dramatic than the the typical calebrity separation.
For starters, there are other celebs involved.
TMZ is reporting that Larsa had been spending a lot of time with the rapper Future in the weeks leading up to her divorce.
Both parties have denied that they were involved in any kind of affair, but when a married woman hangs out with a rapper and then files for divorce a few weeks later – people are gonna talk.
Now, several media outlets have confirmed that police were called to the Pippens’ home twice in a single week earlier this month.
A spokesperson for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department confirms that officers were called to the couple’s residence on October 1 and again on October 4.
The department has not released any information with regard to why the nature of the calls.
Despite the reportedly ugly nature of their split, Scottie and Larsa are said to be working on a reconciliation.
“They’re thinking maybe they can work this out,” a source tells Entertainment Tonight.
“They’ve been together so long. She received a really sweet text from him this morning.”
“They have a very passionate relationship. They really are meant to be together,” the source continues, adding that the couple’s love for each other is “really strong.”
A rep for the Pippens says they plan to proceed with the divorce, and that the split has not been as tumultuous as reported:
“Although they are no longer to be married,” the rep says.
“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.”
