Larsa Pippen rose to fame as the wife of NBA star Scottie Pippen. Born Lara Younan, the socialite and social media influencer met Pippen in her hometown of Chicago. The couple tied the knot in 1997, and currently share four children: Scotty Jr., Preston, Justin, and Sophia. The couple’s marriage hasn’t been the stuff fairytales are made of; she and Pippen filed for divorce twice. During both separations from Pippen, Larsa’s dating life became the focus of celebrity tabloids. Back in 2015, Larsa was briefly linked to Future. It was even alleged that she cheated on Pippen with the rapper, although she later denied the allegations in a series of tweets. Following a brief reconciliation, Larsa and Pippen ended their marriage for good in 2018. Most recently, Larsa is currently linked to Minnesota Timberwolves player Malik Beasley. Again, Larsa is no stranger to controversy, and it’s been alleged that she and Beasley were first involved while the NBA player was still married to his now-estranged wife, Montana Yao. Larsa has denied the claims.
Aside from her marriage to Pippen, Larsa is widely known for her relationship with the Kardashian family. Fans of KUWTK were first introduced to Larsa in 2011. Larsa quickly became a close friend of the family, but recently she’s been singing a different tune about the Kardahsian clan. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, fans noticed Larsa suddenly stopped hanging with the sisters. Many attributed this to social distancing, only up until both Larsa and the Kardashian sisters unfollowed each other on Instagram. In late 2020, Larsa finally broke her silence with some interesting claims. She blamed her fallout with the Kardashians on Kanye West, claiming that Ye “brainwashed” the family and turned them against her. To add fuel to the fire, Larsa alleged that she dated basketball player Tristian Thompson briefly before he sparked a relationship with Khloé Kardashian. Larsa and the Kardashian fam seemingly put the past behind them (for now). Outside of her role as a social media influencer and brand ambassador, Larsa also owns multiple beauty and lifestyle businesses.
