Retired NBA star Scottie Pippen and his reality TV star wife Larsa were due to duke it out in a divorce court hearing in Fort Lauderdale last week, but instead their lawyers shocked the audience by announcing the Pippens are trying to reconcile.
The Pippens, who were married in Chicago in 1997 and have four children, were to appear in court for what was supposed to be a case management hearing.
Instead, lawyers Robert Stanley and Jorge Cestero showed up alone and asked Judge Dale Cohen for another two-month reprieve before the next hearing.

“They’re working on it,” Cestero, Larsa’s attorney, said. “Hopefully, they’ll come to a reconciliation.”
“They’re headed toward reconciliation,” said Stanley, Scottie’s lawyer. “We don’t think there’ll be any action coming soon.”
Six-time NBA champ Scottie, who was mostly known as Michael Jordan’s lieutenant on the Chicago Bulls, filed for divorce in October, alleging irreconcilable differences.
At the time, it was believed he accused the former “Real Housewives of Miami” star Larsa of cheating on him with hip-hop chart-topper Future.
But now Future appears to be out of the picture and Larsa spends most of her time hanging around with reality TV stalwart Kourtney Kardashian.
No motion has been filed in the case since February.
Scottie was an analyst during the NBA Finals, and his statement on ESPN that Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry wasn’t the best player in the series landed him in hot water with fans.
