They survived “The Real Housewives of Miami,” but couldn’t hold out til death do us part.
Larsa (Younan) Pippen and Scottie Pippen are headed for a split, according to widespread media outlets.The former Chicago Bulls player filed for divorce from his wife of 19 years on Tuesday, reports ET. They have four kids together.
TMZ reports that as of September they still had wedding rings on at New York Fashion Week while watching daughter Sophia walk in a show.
But Larsa, a very close friend of Kim Kardashian, is rarely seen in Scottie’s company, and word is he spends more time in Chicago than in Miami tending to his various businesses. TMZ added that there is indeed a prenup, but RadarOnline says Pippen now wants it amended, and seeks “ultimate responsibility” for the children.
“The Husband requests that this Court allocates parental responsibility whereby the Husband is awarded ultimate responsibility over issues relating to education, health care, and general welfare of the minor children,” read court documents.
TMZ was the first to report that cops were called to the ex-couple’s Fort Lauderdale home Oct. 2, then again two nights later. No arrests were made.
A spokesperson for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department confirms that officers were indeed summoned.
In a statement, the exes asked for privacy. Good luck with that.
