Larsa Pippen does not think Michael Jordan would be there to see his son marry her, she has revealed on a recent podcast appearance.
The 49-year-old Pippen is the ex-wife of Jordan’s former Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie. She has been dating Jordan’s son Marcus, 17 years younger than her at the age of 32, since 2021.
There has been widespread speculation that the couple could soon be about to get engaged, which they addressed this week on the show ‘Venues, Rings and Other Things’.
Pippen said of the rumors: ‘I had 100 calls and text messages – people congratulating us and I was like, I’m so excited. But no, we are not engaged.’

‘Do you think you would have a wedding on a reality show? I don’t think your parents would come,’ she said to Marcus.
Jordan is a private man nowadays and doesn’t court the limelight. He recently sold his stake in the Charlotte Hornets NBA team for $3billion and has an estimated worth of $3.5bn.
According to Bloomberg, it makes the 60-year-old the wealthiest basketball player in the history of the NBA.
He did speak out on his son’s relationship with Larsa when he was on vacation with his wife Yvette recently in France.
Paparazzi called out to ask if Jordan approved of his son’s new relationship and he shook his head and said no.
Larsa admitted recently that things would have been made awkward between Michael and his old teammate Scottie Pippen.
She said on the White Down podcast: ”I’m not crazy. The relationship is probably awkward for them (Michael and Scottie).

‘I don’t ask him [Scottie] about his personal stuff. He doesn’t ask me about my personal stuff. We talk about our kids and that’s it.
Scottie, meanwhile, has not addressed the relationship himself but has appeared to have an axe to grind regarding Jordan.
Pippen recently claimed in an interview that Jordan, widely considered the best player ever in the history of the NBA, was ‘a horrible player’ before they became teammates.
‘I seen Michael Jordan play before I came to play with the Bulls,’ Pippen said. ‘You guys seen him play, he was a horrible player.
‘He was horrible to play with, he was all one-on-one, he’s shooting bad shots. All of a sudden, we become a team and we start winning, everybody forgot who he was.’
Shortly after those comments surfaced, Stephen A. Smith accused Pippen of betraying Jordan.
