Larsa Pippen recently sat down with Tamron Hall, who grilled her about her relationship with Michael Jordan’s son Marcus.

Tamron got straight to the point and asked Larsa why, out of all people, she decided to date Marcus, given the fact that her ex-husband, Scottie Pippen, has expressed contention for Michael. Larsa explained:

“I didn’t plan it like that. It wasn’t like it was planned… I think we were just together a lot with our friends. And it just so happened. It wasn’t like something I planned. You got to remember, I feel like for me being you know, married to someone that was an athlete or whatever. It’s really hard. You get scrutinized a lot. People don’t think you should have a life once you get divorced. They think you’re once you’re divorced. You’re like done.” 

Larsa was also asked about Marcus’ parents thoughts on their relationship, and she quickly deflected, stating, “I feel like it’s not about my parents or his parents, They’re all happy. Our whole famliy’s fine. I feel like it’s more about where I am, where he is. I feel like we’re in a great place. We motivate each other. We’re really happy being together, and I feel like that’s the most important thing.”
