The NBA world went nuts earlier this year when the relationship between Michael Jordan’s son and Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife went public and now MJ’s true feelings about the relationship have been revealed.
MJ’s son, Marcus, and Larsa Pippen’s relationship is quite an interesting one once you consider their 16-year age gap and the fact that MJ and Larsa’s ex-husband Scottie Pippen were Bulls teammates, but love is love right?
On Sunday, Jordan was leaving dinner in Paris’ Matignon club and was asked by the paparazzi whether he approved of his son’s relationship.
The papper asked a couple of times because at first, MJ just laughed but in the end his answer was a resounding, “No”.

The 60-year-old definitely didn’t mince his words!
This contradicts what Larsa has said in the media in the past, where she’s hinted that MJ was okay with the Housewives of Miami star dating his son.
“Yeah, I feel like we’re great, yeah,” Larsa said on the Tamron Hall Show earlier this year. “I feel like — we’ve spent holidays together and it’s good. We’re in a great place.”
More recently though, she did say that she hid the relationship by changing Marcus’ name in her phone, so maybe it hasn’t always been smooth sailing.
Marcus hinted as much in the couples debut episode of their podcast, Separation Anxiety.
“I don’t think there was ever any hurdles, I just think there was some shock value to the fact that we were dating,” Marcus said. “Caught maybe some people on my side of the family off guard a little bit.”
It will be interesting to see if Larsa and Marcus address the NBA GOAT’s comments in their next episode.
