In response to his son Marcus Jordan dating Larsa Pippen from “Real Housewives of Miami,” NBA superstar Michael Jordan finally voiced his opinion. Let’s say that his response wasn’t exactly a foregone conclusion.
Marcus and Larsa’s relationship allegations first surfaced in September 2022 when they were seen dining together in Miami.
According to a source who revealed to Us Weekly, the two were dating at the time, “Marcus and Larsa are dating and have been spending more time together in recent weeks.” The reality actress and the baller’s son quickly made their Instagram romance official, with Larsa even telling Tamron Hall that it just happened spontaneously.
“That wasn’t as I had it planned.” She explained that contrary to what everyone had assumed, she had only recently met Marcus. “I don’t think we were just together a lot with our friends, and it just happened,” she stated. In contrast to what many people believe, she said, “We have not known each other our entire lives.” “We met at a party four years ago and were just friends.”
Larsa also revealed they were “happy,” but Marcus’ father, the only MJ, can’t be claimed to be as content with the union.
Michael Jordan is apparently against Marcus Jordan and Larsa Pippen’s romance.
Michael Jordan is renowned for never saying no to anything, but when asked if he approved of Marcus Jordan and Larsa Pippen’s relationship, it appears this was his response.
A TMZ photographer asked the NBA Hall of Famer to comment on their romance as they were leaving a restaurant in Paris, but he initially shrugged it off. And when prodded further, his reply makes all the necessary information clear: “No!” You disapprove?” the photographer enquired to clarify. The athlete shook his head to emphasize his response.
Jordan’s response is unexpected, given Larsa’s prior claims that she gets along well with him and the other Jordans. She told Tamron Hall in her interview, “I’ve been hanging out with them lately, but I don’t want to talk about them.”
However, it also makes sense, given that Jordan and Larsa’s ex, Scottie Pippen, have a history of animosity. Despite being teammates on the court during their tenure in the NBA, Pippen revealed that he felt ignored by Jordan’s “The Last Dance” documentary, which caused their friendship to deteriorate.
In his autobiography, “Unguarded,” he lamented that “they glorified Michael Jordan while not giving nearly enough praise to my proud teammates and me.”
“Michael was largely to blame for what happened. He served as both the director and the leading man.” Perhaps Jordan’s emphatic “no” meant more than just that he didn’t like his son’s new partner.
