Scottie and Larsa Pippen have reportedly filed for divorce. While there are rumors saying the breakup was caused by Larsa’s infidelity -- she has been linked to rapper Future -- a source close to the couple reportedly said it’s Larsa’s choice in friends that has caused trouble.
“Scottie hates the whole ‘Kardashian Instagram lifestyle,’” a source close to the couple reportedly told Page Six. “[Larsa is] all about clubs and rappers and DJs. He just wants out of that world. He just wants to play golf and stay low-key. He’s afraid of all the gossip that comes with that Kardashian world she’s in.”
Another factor that has caused Scottie to file for divorce is distance. Scottie reportedly spends much of his time in Chicago while Larsa stays in Miami.
Although they have marital problems, their almost two-decade relationship will not end, according to Larsa’s representative. The two will most likely patch things up since they are still communicating.
Rumors that Larsa has been seeing Future started when TMZ reported that Scottie’s wife was spotted traveling with the rapper via his private jet. There were also reportedly some people who saw Larsa and Future getting “cozy” at a nightclub in Miami. Larsa and Future reportedly met in August and have been seeing each other on a “casual” basis since.
Sources close to Scottie and Larsa, however, clarified that Larsa’s actions were prompted by Scottie being flirty with an actress last summer.
Tension has been high over at the Pippens. The police were called on two separate occasions to the couple’s home. Larsa reportedly told the police she and Scottie had a “heated verbal argument,” but they did not hurt each other physically.
Larsa’s representative announced on Oct. 21 that the Pippens have decided to end their marriage. A reason was not given. The two will also reportedly continue to co-parent their four children.
