Scottie and Larsa Pippen

Here's good news if you like a challenge: former NBA star Scottie Pippen is divorcing his wife of 16 years, Larsa Pippen. But the challenge is he has a type.

The estranged couple raced each other to the courthouse to file the divorce papers, gossip tabloid TMZ reports.

The 51-year-old Chicago Bulls legend has 7 children -- 4 with Larsa and three from his first marriage.

The former Larsa Younan is a 42-year-old Chicago native who met Pippen at the height of his career. Rumors of Scottie's whoring were rampant, yet Larsa kept her marriage together for the children. Kudos to her.

Us Weekly -- Larsa's rep issued a statement to Us Weekly. "After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage,” the statement said. "Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their four beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. … She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family."

    I've often wondered why do people release statements?

  • Bam Bam

    What is hilarious is she made a public statement but then asked for privacy.

  • Anonymouse

    They think they're important.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Larsa stayed with him because she has no marketable skills and he was her meal ticket. I'm not sure she is only 42, but I know she is too damn old to be trailing behind Kim Kardashian.

    As I said on TMZ, Larsa expects to live like she married Michael Jordan, but she married Scottie Pippen. Their money is totally different.

    Ain't nobody checking for Scotti pipen

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

  • Noirluv45

    He has a "type." So do I, and he ain't it.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    All that man knows how to do is cheat. If he raced her to divorce court over stepping out then Gander meet Goose - what's good?

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    Someone on a different blog said she was sick of being with a man who looks like a Tiki mask. Look at his pic again. Truer words have never been spoke

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    She didn't look like this before either , his looks didn't bother her when she made it her job to stalk him in the locker room , years ago.

  • brooklyn23

    Thats it. Point blank period

  • brooklyn23

    I hate you for this lol. I had to scroll back up. Ive always said he looked like something, but couldn't put my finger on it. The same way I said toni braxton looks like a creature, then I saw that *fade* video and said she looks exactly like the cat potrayed by teyana taylor

  • pecancandy

    Damn you

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Damn

  • Tammie Reed

    his hands are HUGE

  • Emily post

    lol you saying too old she knows who her audience is and the men that she is trying to attract and attracts. ..... but lets face it the men with that type of preference it don't have nothing to do with age or morals...
    Of course she expects to be paid... She allowed him to use her as a trophy for all those years.... You cant be mad at her.. Thats his values. and what he values. He was a millionaire he had lots of options and thats what he chose.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I said Larsa is too old to be Kim Kardashian's flunky, Em. Big difference. She is still relatively young.

  • Zebra Stripes

    Scottie looks like his face been sat on repeatedly.

  • Keri

    It's funny cuz they all do that.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Who?

  • kekeb

    Sooooo, another non-black woman will be next in line to take all his money. No surprise

  • Ebony Starr

    When Larsa was on the reality show, she said that she controlled all of Scottie's money.

  • Scromes1212

    I didn't know she was on a reality show but that's usually the beginning of the end lol. He get a decent check from the Chicago bulls still, so he should be ok.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • Nancy Drew Wants U 2 Fall Back

    Nobody cares :yawn: ??

  • Ebony Starr

    She was on Real Housewives of Miami.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    That's a funny looking trophy ! IMO

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    You saying she was hanging around locker rooms like Drake?

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Drake took a page from her book .

  • stanhope

    Larsa always looking for a better deal.

  • nich

    She looks good, but not the same as 16 years ago. Looks are fading and now he wants to trade her in for a younger woman.. Sad

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush
  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Oh Nan. See.

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    This bitch ain't no saint her damn self IMO. Tabloid trying to make it seem Scottie was cheating. Whatever

  • Hamper

    Exactly. Too damn old.

  • Hamper

    No. He has 4 kids from her and 3 from his first marriage. Get it right.

  • Hamper

    And not in a good way!

  • Hamper

    This chick was on a Real Housewives show. That says everything you need to know - she's chasing the spotlight and anyone that can help give it to her.

  • Lovelove

    No he has a baby by a white chick from Florida, a child with a girl from Chicago ( they were twins, one died at birth) and a son by his high school gf... not sure if they married. U need to fact check since ur acting like the authority on Tiki Pippen

  • Ice

    She is more like 45

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Agreed.

  • Ant Hill

    Hope he had a prenup...she looks like a Kim K wanna be.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    19 years strong, I'm sure his looks bothered her not at all. The Tiki Mask comment had me dying though because the picture that went with it was spot on

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    I actually don't think she looks bad. Cookie cutter maybe, but not bad.
