Larsa Pippen Calls Michael Jordan's Son Marcus Her 'Forever' Valentine
Looks like things are beginning to get serious between Real Housewives of Miami star, Larsa Pippen, 48, and Marcus Jordan, 32, as they confessed undying love for each other with adorable Valentine’s Day tributes on Tuesday. “My forever Valentine,” Larsa, captioned a picture of the pair at the beach. Meanwhile, NBA legend Michael Jordan's son Marcus posted a cutesy picture of Pippen holding two beautiful bouquets of roses.
This came as a surprise for fans since the two have remained relatively private about their rumored relationship. According to Page Six, last year in December, Pippen had mentioned that the two were only good friends though she was open to dating. “We’ve been friends for the last couple of years, and I’m in a place right now where I’m finally open to dating,” she told us in December. Every time I’m seen out with someone, [people] make it out to be more than it actually is, and it’s normally nothing.” She continued, “People want to label your relationship when they don’t know what it is. But I don’t really care what other people think.”
However, the Instagram posts on Valentine's day are proof that their relationship has reached the next "forever" level of dating.
Considering Pippen's past, the reality star’s ex-husband, Scottie Pippen, had been in an altercation with Marcus’ legendary dad Michael Jordan following their stint with Chicago Bulls in the 1990s. Things went south between the two after ESPN aired the 2020 docuseries The Last Dance.
According to US Magazine, Scottie and Larsa got married in 1997 and split in 2015. This was before they rekindled their romance in 2017, only to finally separate the following year, and divorce in December 2021. As parents to Scotty Jr., 22, Preston, 20, Justin, 17, and Sophia, 13, the two share 50-50 custody of the younger kids and currently are on good terms as exes.
Larsa and Marcus first sparked dating rumors in September 2022 after they were spotted grabbing lunch together in Miami. The romantic couple made their relationship Instagram official with an iconic picture taken at Marcus' Trophy Room store in Orlando, Florida. Prior to that, Larsa maintained that they were only friends regardless of the dozens of PDA-filled date and game nights together. With their latest loved-up Valentine's posts on Instagram, the couple has cemented their fairytale romance further. The adorable pictures have come up days after they were spotted kissing each other in public.
People reported that the reality star and Michael Jordan's son were seen sharing a kiss while taking a stroll on Miami Beach last month. Paparazzi caught up with the two just outside the W South Beach hotel. Larsa had always played coy about her relationship with Marcus but things are now heating up between the two.
