Larsa Pippen and Scottie Pippen might be going through a divorce at the moment, but they have been married to each other since 1997.
That is what makes her next confession so shocking.
Larsa Pippen went into detail about her relationship with the Kardashian family — including Khloé Kardashian‘s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
“I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloé. Before Khloé or any of them knew he existed. I was seeing him, I had him come to L.A., I brought him to a party Kim had. I introduced him to all of them,” Pippen, 46, claimed during the Monday, November 9, episode of the “Hollywood Raw” podcast. “Then a week later, or 10 days later, he started seeing Khloé. Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever. … I never cared that Khloé was with him after me.”
She then denied that she recently had an affair with the 29-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers star.
“I would never do that. That’s not even my personality,” she said, noting that she’s rooting for the couple, who share 2-year-old daughter True. “If they love each other, then God bless. I think when you have a family with someone, it’s really hard to break up,” Pippen said. “You do everything in order to keep your kids home together and happy. I applaud them for working things out. I think it’s great they are trying to work on their relationship. I’m really proud of them. I applaud them.”
Pippen and the Kardashian family were close for years, but fans noticed that Kim Kardashian and the reality star had unfollowed each other over the summer. Pippen claimed that Kanye West actually encouraged Kim to unfollow her.
“I didn’t feel any type of way. I just felt, like, do what’s best for your family. I love you, you and I are best friends, we’ve been through everything together, I would never do anything to jeopardize our relationship, we’re like sisters, we’re family, but if you have to unfollow me to make your home a better place, do it,” the Chicago native said. “He talks so much about me being this and that and this and that. I just feel like Kanye was in a place where he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Larsa was asked whether infidelity was to blame for her marriage to Scottie Pippen crumbling.
“With Scottie, I lot of people think he cheated on her and she cheated on him. That never was the case in our relationship,” she said. “Infidelity really wasn’t what was the demise of our marriage. It was other things. We just kinda grew apart and fought over things, it was never about another person. It was always about the issues we had.”
Following the split, she started to date rapper Future, but she made it a point to state their relationship started after she separated from Pippen.
“Then I met Future and he and I became friends and we hung out for a little bit. It was definitely a respectable relationship,” she explained. “We were friends and we needed each other at that moment. I think people make more of it, for better conversation, for people to say she cheated on [Scottie]. It was none of that. Scottie wasn’t even living at home with me.”
