AceShowbiz - Larsa Pippen has reacted after she was mocked in public during a football game for being in a relationship with Marcus Jordan. Making use of her social media platform, "The Real Housewives of Miami" star defended herself.
On Tuesday, November 22, the former wife of Scottie Pippen stepped into The Shade Room to respond to a video that saw her being heckled during a Los Angeles Chargers game on Sunday. The Bravolebrity is receiving backlash for getting close to the son of Michael Jordan despite the former NBA stars' years-long feud.
"I just met him 3 years ago i never knew him or his family," Larsa claimed. The 48-year-old reality star further explained, "I was 21 yrs old and in college when Scottie played that one year w MJ and we weren't friends with them like everyone thinks."
In a video that has since gone viral on social media, a stranger shouted at Larsa while recording her and Marcus, who were watching the game together. "Ay, Larsa that's what you doin'? You with the boy Mike's son? You a cold mother f**ker aren't you? You're cold as a motherf**ker, homie," said the stranger.
A glamorous Larsa turned toward the person recording the video when he shouted her name, before realizing she was being heckled. Marcus, too, turned around but also chose to ignore the heckler's comments.
Larsa's Sunday outing with Marcus marked the first time the so-called couple was seen together after it's revealed that the Bravo personality is "not exclusively" dating the 31-year-old basketballer due to his cheating scandal with multiple women. "Larsa and Marcus aren't exclusively together; they're dating," a source told Page Six.
"It's so new," the insider added of Larsa and Marcus' romance. "They're just enjoying time getting to know each other," the informant stressed, adding that the TV personality "doesn't want to jump into an exclusive relationship right now."
Larsa and Marcus first sparked dating speculations in September, but Larsa herself insisted in October that they're just "friends." Despite saying so, she confirmed that she's "dating around" but not in a "set situation."
Though Larsa did deny the dating rumors, the two have spent a lot of time together in recent months. More recently, they were photographed enjoying a dinner date at Swan restaurant in Miami's Design District. Interestingly, they weren't shy to show PDA in front of cameras as they held hands outside the eatery.
