Michael Jordan initially disdained his son, Marcus, dating Larsa Pippen. However, the pair have come full circle, and Marcus now wants his famous father to be the best man at his wedding.
Marcus and Michael Jordan are a formidable father-son duo. However, Marcus’ relationship with Larsa Pippen threatened to ruin that. Larsa was married to Scottie Pippen for over two decades but began dating Marcus after her divorce from Scottie in December 2021.
What Did Michael Jordan Say About Marcus and Larsa’s Love?
Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen are a much-beloved duo in the NBA. The pair made history in their sport, but their seemingly close on-court friendship did not translate into their daily lives. In fact, they were not at all close. This meant that when Marcus started dating Larsa, Michael was not pleased.
When a photographer saw Michael out just after the news of his son and Larsa’s relationship broke, they asked if he approved of the relationship, and the NBA legend shook his head to signal a “no.”
Although Michael expressed displeasure at his son’s relationship with Larsa, Marcus dispelled the rumors. Marcus clarified:
“When I saw it, I immediately thought, ‘He’s, you know, just being playful,’… I didn’t put too much weight into it.”
Larsa also acknowledged that her ex-husband and Marcus’ dad might have felt awkward about the situation. However, the couple also denied rumors that Larsa had known Marcus as he was growing up or that she babysat him.
Now, Larsa has spent time with the Jordans, and the couple have even begun thinking about marriage, with Marcus saying that he would love his father to be the best man at his wedding to Larsa.
