Scottie Pippen is going to have to pay his ex-wife Larsa a ton of money

In 2018, Larsa released a statement announcing her divorce from the former Chicago Bulls star after months of infidelity rumors.

“Ppl are so insensitive to my life. I’m a lover and will never say anything negative about him. My soul isn’t built for negativity,” Larsa shared on Instagram “I’ll take a beating publicly. Ppl saying I cheated when believe me it wasn’t like that.”

“He was no where around. I cried oceans after him. I would do anything for him. Ppl saying I’m a gold digger is inane. I don’t care about money. I’ve had it my whole life.”

“I spent my bday, New Year’s Eve, times when I needed him alone,” she shared. “At some point, I decided I had to live my truth and here I am.”

The former couple have since been in court fighting about what assets should be split and Larsa just won a big case in court.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Larsa has been awarded half of Scottie’s Chicago Bulls retirement money.

According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, an order was put in place by an L.A. County court in regard to the former couple’s ongoing divorce — specifying Larsa’s rights to Scottie’s Chicago Bulls 401(k) and “savings plan trust.”

In the order, the court recognizes Larsa as Scottie’s ex-wife — whom he married in 1997. The official date of separation is November 3, 2016. So…she was legally awarded “Fifty Percent” of all account balances as of the plan’s valuation amount closest to the date of their separation. In other words, she gets half of the amount that was accrued in the account from 1997 to 2016.

If that wasn’t enough, the order appears to read that Larsa is also entitled to the full amount regardless of what is currently in the account. It states, “To the extent, there are no assets in his account sufficient to satisfy the assignment benefit on the date a separate account is established for (Larsa), the order should be interpreted as an award of 100% of (Scottie’s) vested account balance.”

The court order states that Larsa will be paid a “cash lump sum” and the money will be distributed to her own account “as soon as administratively possible following the approval of this order.”

To make things worse for Scottie, Larsa is currently dating the son of his former Bulls teammate Michael Jordan, and the two have a podcast together in which they talk about their relationship.
