Former NBA Star Scottie Pippen Involved in Contentious Divorce

Retired NBA superstar Scottie Pippen is currently involved in an extremely contentious divorce from his longtime wife.

Scottie Pippen and Larsa Pippen got married in 1997. During their 19 years of marriage, Scottie and Larsa had four kids together. (Scottie has three children from earlier relationships, with all of those children being over the age of 18.) Of course, this could lead to serious issues involving child custody and child support during the already-heated divorce proceedings.

The split comes on the heels of the married couple attending an NYC Fashion Week event in October, when they actually walked on the red carpet together with one of their daughters. Both spouses later filed for divorce, which gives some indication of how combative the divorce process could end up being. Larsa did issue a statement indicating that she is “hopeful” that the soon-to-be-divorced couple will be able to keep their children’s best interests in mind as they go through this process.

However, not long after the initial divorce paperwork was filed in a Florida circuit court, Scottie Pippen reportedly attempted to get a prenuptial agreement amended so that he would not be required to pay spousal support. Moreover, Scottie is reportedly requesting full custody of the couple’s four kids by asking the court to “allocate parental responsibility whereby the Husband is awarded ultimate responsibility over issues relating to education, health care, and general welfare of the minor children.” Some media outlets have speculated that Scottie may want to move the children from Florida to Chicago, Illinois.

While Scottie Pippen is a former professional basketball player who made his name playing with Michael Jordan on the Chicago Bulls, Larsa Pippen is a celebrity in her own right. Larsa used to be a cast member on the popular Bravo reality TV series “Real Housewives of Miami” and she regularly appears on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
