Larsa Pippen and Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus, have called it quits after a year of dating, according to multiple insiders.
The pair’s relationship shocked the basketball world, since Larsa was Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife and was also 16 years Marcus’ senior.
“They’re not together,” a source exclusively tells Page Six on Monday after the “Real Housewives of Miami” star deleted all evidence of their relationship from her Instagram, sparking breakup rumors.
“The source adds that they “are taking space from each other” due to the “tension” in their relationship.”
Tension, which the source alleges was “incited” by MJ himself “publicly denouncing it.”
“Marcus said Michael was joking when he said he didn’t approve, but it really mortified Larsa,” the source said.
The source is likely referring to July of last year, when MJ was asked by paparazzi whether he approved of the relationship, to which he answered with a resounding, “No”.
Another element of the relationship that caused friction was MJ’s beef with his former Bulls teammate Scottie.
“The history between Michael and Scottie made things complicated, even if Larsa and Marcus did their best to make it a non-issue,” the insider explains.
However, a second source close to the pair told Page Six that their split “has nothing to do with any family input, but solely for their personal growth.”
Larsa and Marcus were leaving clues of their break up on Instagram, with Larsa putting up various IG stories that have since been deleted.
“Should your friends unfollow your ex,” she asked in an Instagram poll on Sunday.
In another Instagram story from Monday, Pippen reposted some text warning people to be careful of the person they choose to be with.
“The man you choose to be your partner affects everything in your life,” the post said. “Your mental health, your peace of mind …. how your children will be raised and much more. Choose wisely.”
The couple had publicly announced that they were planning on tying the knot and potentially even having children together at the back end of 2023.
