Savannah James responded to reports that her 16-year-old son, Bronny James, was romantically linked with 46-year-old Instagram influencer Larsa Pippen, simply because he 'liked' one of her pictures.

The rumor was allegedly started by a blogger who noticed Bronny "liked" one of Larsa's photos. Savannah, a grown woman who rarely addresses gossip, was not feeling the comments about her teenage son on the internet.

"With everything going on in the world right now, this is the s--t y'all talking about....," Savannah wrote on her Instagram Story.

"At the end of the day y'all are talking about a minor. I don't care what type of 'celebrity' y'all think he is, he's a child and the bulls--t needs to stop. Y'all got the right one."

It all started when sports blog Black Sports Online reported that Bronny "liked" one of Larsa's Instagram photos and sent her a direct message. It was the "direct message" lie that got under Savannah's skin and prompted her to issue a correction -- Black mama style.

Savannah, 34, and Lebron James, 35, share three children, Bronny, son Bryce Maximus, 13, and 6-year-old daughter Zhuri.

Larsa is best known as the wife of NBA legend Scottie Pippen and mother of his 4 children, Scottie Jr., Sophia, Justin, and Preston. They announced their divorce in 2016.

Larsa hired publicists to make her internet famous. Their efforts paid off and she was paired with the Kardashian Klan on some episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Larsa also appeared on The Real Housewives of Miami.

Malik Beasley and his estranged wife Montana Yao are back in the headlines.

If you recall, charges were filed in September against the Minnesota Timberwolves guard and Yao after cops found drugs and loaded weapons in Beasley's rented mansion.

Beasley was also charged for pointing a loaded rifle at a couple and their teenage daughter who pulled into their driveway after they mistook Beasley's rented mansion as part of the annual Parade of Homes tour on Sept. 26.

Now Yao claims she was "blindsided" when she saw paparazzi photos of Beasley and Instagram cougar model Larsa Pippen together.

Friends wonder why Yao was blindsided when he moved out of their home weeks ago.

Beasley and Yao have been married for 9 months, and their marriage fell apart after the charges were leveled against him.

The 24-year-old NBA star apparently sought solace in the arms of Scottie Pippen's 46-year-old ex-wife.

Montana Yao, 23, is in the process of filing for divorce.

Larsa Pippen has denied creeping with serial cheater Tristan Thompson behind Khloe Kardashian's back.

This should come as no surprise to Khloe, who dumped Tristan after he was caught on camera kissing a groupie two years ago.

Larsa, who is best known as former NBA star Scottie Pippen's ex-wife, was in the blogs after reports claimed she dated Tristan while smiling in Khloe's face.

Larsa, 46, denied the reports in a podcast interview, saying she knew Tristan before Khloe even met him. Larsa said Tristan wasn't her speed, so she let Khloe have him.

"I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloe. Before Khloe or any of them knew he existed. I was seeing him. I had him come to LA. I brought him to a party Kim had. I introduced him to all of them. Then a week later, or 10 days later, he started seeing Khloe, which is fine. I don't even care. It's whatever."

Larsa and Scottie share 4 children. They divorced in 2016.

Kim Kardashian unfollowed former bestie Larsa Pippen because the two women grew apart.

Rumors swirled that Kim unfollowed Larsa because she slept with her sister Khloe's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson.

But sources tell TMZ the women unfollowed Scottie Pippen's wife because they just aren't as close as they used to be.

Larsa's name was dropped by Kim's husband, Kanye West, who went on a bipolar outburst on Twitter this week.

The "Gold Digger" star cryptically wrote "Larsa" in one of his tweets, and his followers noted that Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian had all unfollowed the former "Real Housewives of Miami" TV personality on Instagram.

According to TMZ, Kim quietly stopped following Larsa on Instagram at the end of last year when she made a decision to unfollow everyone. The move brought her follow count down to zero.

The source said Kim thought she needed a fresh start by following only accounts of her closest friends, family and childhood friends. At the time, she re-followed Larsa.

Larsa and Scottie Pippen and the Kardashians were good friends, even making appearances on episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

But Kim's followers noticed this week they weren't following each other on Instagram anymore. TMZ's sources say the ladies' friendship simply grew apart over time.

"We're told there was no drama between Kim and Larsa -- and the rumors floating around LP messed around with Kanye and Tristan Thompson are not true."

Kim is focused on getting Kanye healthy -- although she has tried for years to get him healthy with no luck.

She also has her 4 young kids to raise, while juggling law school studies and her 3 businesses.

Larsa is still followed by Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney (pictured left) on Twitter.

Larsa, meanwhile, says she's not worried about Kim unfollowing her because she is focused on her own kids, her new fitness line and her other "relationships in real life."

While no explanation has been given as to why Kanye tweeted her name, Larsa, who has also unfollowed the Kardashian siblings, addressed recent headlines in an Instagram Story on Wednesday, writing that she prays "everybody finds peace."

"I woke up this morning blessed and see that everybody is focused on who I am following and who I am not following on social media," she wrote. "I am focused on my children, my new fitness brand Larsapippenfitness, and my relationship in real life."

She concluded: "Praying that everybody finds peace in their own lives and focus on what brings them happiness."

You'll be happy to know that Scottie Pippen and his wife Larsa are still trying to make their marriage work. If you recall, the NBA legend and his wife split up a while back after he found out she was cheating on him. Pippen keeps a tight reign on his wife by accompanying her to a nail salon appointment in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
