Scottie Pippen Divorce Update: Former NBA Player Demands Full Custody of All Four Children
Former NBA standout Scottie Pippen is currently in the middle of a legal battle, after he had just divorced Larsa, his wife of 19 years.
The news was first reported on October 21, when the 51-year-old Pippen filed the documents in Florida. The couple has signed a pre-nuptial agreement, wherein Larsa would be receiving child support money for their four children. The amount, however, has not been disclosed.
Initial reports didn't determine what caused the couple's break-up. Later, tt was then revealed that Larsa was rumored to have had an affair with rapper Future, as the two were purportedly spotted together in Miami.
However, the two parties had repeatedly denied the said allegations. For Larsa's part, her relationship with the musician remained platonic, noting that they "have been friends for a while." Future, meanwhile, also shut down the rumors, claiming that he already had a full line-up of women and that he would not dare have an affair with a married one.
New developments reveal that the former NBA All-Star and multi-time champion is seeking full custody of their four children. Allegedly, Pippen's legal counsel had already filed their document at the Broward County Circuit Court, stating that he should be granted full responsibility for their offspring. Otherwise, they are demanding for Pippen to be granted "majority of timesharing".
The report adds that Scottie also entered a plea for the court not to demand from him to pay alimony. As of this posting, his net worth is estimated to be at $50 million.
Pippen rose to mainstream superstardom during his 11-year stint with the Chicago Bulls. As the right-hand man of the great Michael Jordan, he helped steer the team to a total of six NBA titles, including an impressive 1996-1997 NBA season when they set a record of being the first team to win 70 games.
