As the divorce drama between Larsa and Scottie Pippen gets more intense by the second, details of their private lives are starting to become public. That includes some 911 calls that Larsa Pippen made recently where she accused Scottie of getting “verbally aggressive” with her. Naturally, Scottie’s lawyer has already responded to the emergency call leak, and she’s trying to clear up any misconceptions about whether Scottie actually got violent with Larsa or not.
According to TMZ, calls were made to 911 on October 1 and 4. They were able to get ahold of audio for the 911 calls from Larsa Pippen. In the first one, she claims that Scottie is getting very “verbally aggressive” with her and she asks for police to come to their Florida home.

It didn’t take long after the 911 calls for Scottie Pippen to file for divorce from Larsa. While the calls themselves don’t indicate why Scottie and Larsa were fighting, it came out soon after that the former NBA legend was upset with Larsa because she had reportedly been hanging out with rapper Future behind his back.
Future even seemed happy to fan the flames on those rumors. Just days after Larsa and Scottie Pippen’s split was reported, Future took to Snapchat and posted a picture of himself with the message, “She’s all mines now!!!!!!” While he didn’t elaborate whether he was talking about Larsa Pippen or not, there’s really no other explanation for Future’s social media post aside from that.
After Larsa Pippen’s 911 calls became public, Scottie’s lawyer has already responded. Within one day of the first recording going public, Roberta G. Stanley issued the following statement on behalf of the former NBA star.
“Mr. Pippen is aware that some members of the press have obtained 911 recordings recently made by Ms. Pippen. While these recordings speak for themselves, Ms. Pippen did not make any allegations of physical violence by Mr. Pippen. Although Mr. and Ms. Pippen both have public personas, their divorce is a private matter. Mr. Pippen requests that the press respect his privacy and that of his family during this time.”
Perez Hilton reported that there might have been more to Larsa’s concern than just having her husband become verbally aggressive. Perez reported that after police had responded to one of the calls, they discovered that Scottie had smashed his cell phone, supposedly out of frustration, and that was the reason that Larsa called for help.

In the first call, Larsa can be heard on the 911 recording saying, “Can you send someone over here? My husband’s being really aggressive with me.” Just days later, on October 4, she made a second call to Fort Lauderdale Police and told the responder, “My husband’s gotten crazy again with me.”
So far, no one from Larsa Pippen’s camp is willing to comment on the 911 calls that have been made public. While Scottie Pippen and his legal team were quick to point out that she never accused Scottie of getting physical, we still don’t know all of the details leading up to the calls for help.

Scottie filed for divorce just days after Larsa made the 911 calls. It’s also unclear if this was Scottie’s way of putting an end to the madness or if the rumors about Larsa and Future are true. In any case, Scottie has asked that a judge uphold his prenup with Larsa, which will massively benefit him. Further, Scottie reportedly wants physical custody of the kids, and he wants to move them from Fort Lauderdale to his other home in Chicago.
As the Pippen divorce gets more tense, Larsa has made it clear that she’s not going down without a fight. TMZ reported that she wants spousal support from Scottie. Larsa also wants the kids to stay right where they are, she wants Scottie to pay their private school tuition, and she wants to keep the family home where they already live.
