TheBoombox- NBA legend Scottie Pippen has filed for divorce from his wife after 19 years of marriage. According to PEOPLE, the 51-year-old NBA Hall of Famer submitted divorce papers in Florida last Tuesday (Oct. 18) and Larsa was notified of the filing on the following Thursday (Oct. 20).
“After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage. Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”
TMZ is reporting that Scottie is divorcing Larsa after he caught his wife hooking up with rapper Future on multiple occasions. Larsa reportedly has been traveling around the country on the Atlanta rhymer’s private jet. They reportedly met at a lavish party in Miami back in August and have been getting “cozy” ever since.
According to reports, the divorcing couple have signed an ironclad pre-nup in which Scottie agrees to pay monthly child support that will be determined by a judge.
I see a lot of people out there responding to this news by saying "damn, I guess no one is safe". While I tend to agree that it's impossible to guarantee you don't get cuckolded in 2016, I hardly consider this act of infidelity a testament to the fragility of monogamous relationships. Sure, I'd like to believe that a man whose been married for 20 years, has 4 kids, and $50 million in the bank is beyond getting cheated on with some rapper who basically performs in Swahili and has enough baby mama drama to get his own drag down menu on TMZ, but have you looked at the victim in question?
I don't want to be too superficial because I know that attractive women marry ugly dudes for money all the time. However, imagine being Larsa and looking in the mirror after getting woken up by your husband's Mr. Ed lookin' face ass clearing his record setting sinuses in your ear every night for two decades. You might be able to suppress that eye-popping aesthetic disparity for awhile, but eventually a women whose clearly familiar with fishing in the celebrity dating pool is going to dip her line back in the water. You realize there's so many famous dudes undoubtedly diving in her DM's that her inbox looks like the VIP section at a Vegas pool party? Scottie Pippen might be worth 8 figures, but she's easily had hundreds of millions of dollars worth of dick offered up to her. Not sure why she choose Future and his lowly $8 million dollar bankroll, but if there's a man whose face made you feel comfortable taking a $42 million downslide then it would be Scottie Pippen's. I do feel for the guy, but I'm not about to treat a reality TV star's decision to fuck around on her ugly husband who hasn't been in the public eye for a decade like it signals the death of the institution of marriage. That's not to say that it's not on life support. I'm just not ready to pull the plug because a gold digger changed her ways in sacrificing finances for relevance by becoming just another "broad in Atlanta".
