Born Larsa Younan in Chicago, Illinois, on July 6, 1974, Larsa Pippen rose to fame as the wife of NBA star Scottie Pippen. The twosome wed in 1997 and welcomed son Scotty Jr. (born in 2000), Preston (2002), Justin (2005) and Sophia (2008). After nearly 20 years of marriage, the pair announced their split in 2016. While they later reconciled, Larsa and Scottie filed for divorce again in 2018 amid rumors that she had an affair with rapper Future. She has denied that infidelity was the reason for the split.
Larsa first ventured into reality TV as a full-time cast member on season 1 of The Real Housewives of Miami, which aired in 2011. While she did not return for season 2, Larsa went on to make appearances on then-BFF Kim Kardashian’s E! series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In July 2020, fans noticed that Larsa and Kardashian no longer followed each other on social media. Larsa later blamed Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, for their falling out. She also denied having an affair with Khloé Kardashian’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
In December 2020, Larsa made headlines for stepping out with married NBA player Malik Beasley. After Beasley’s wife, Montana Yao, slammed him on social media, she filed for divorce.
