Larsa Pippen ‘traumatized’ over Michael Jordan’s comments on her relationship with his son

Larsa Pippen expressed feelings of “embarrassment” and “trauma” after Michael Jordan publicly voiced his disapproval of her relationship with his son Marcus Jordan.

“I didn’t find it funny. There’s nothing funny about it,” the 49-year-old reality star said to her 32-year-old partner during the latest episode of their podcast, “Separation Anxiety.”

Pippen felt uneasy about the NBA legend’s remarks because she believed the public would think she had lied when she previously stated that both families approved of her relationship with Marcus.

“Online, people were saying that I was lying – that I lied and claimed that our parents were fine because I did interviews and said that both of our families were fine,” she added.

“When I would say that, I felt like I wasn’t exaggerating… and I would say that both of our parents want us to be happy… I do understand that it’s not awkward for us to be together because it’s us.”

The star of “Real Housewives of Miami” acknowledged that her romance with the founder of Trophy Room, Marcus, may be uncomfortable for her ex-husband Scottie Pippen and his former Chicago Bulls teammate Michael due to their alleged feud.

However, she insisted that she and Marcus were not involved in that feud.

“I feel like for them, it’s probably weird, it’s probably weird for your dad. I can’t be mad. I understand,” she continued. “[But] Oh my God, I was traumatized. I was like, ‘What are we going to do? People think I lied.'”

Larsa Pippen said she was “embarrassed” and “traumatized” after Michael Jordan publicly shared that he disapproved of her relationship with his son Marcus Jordan.

“I didn’t think it was funny. There is nothing funny about it,” the reality star, 49, said to her beau, 32, during Monday’s episode of their podcast, “Separation Anxiety.”

Pippen said she felt uneasy about the NBA legend’s remarks as she believed the public would think she had lied earlier this year when she said both families approved of her relationship with Marcus.

“Online they were saying that I was lying – that I lied and said that our parents are fine because I was doing interviews and saying both of our families are fine,” she added.

“When I would say that, I felt like I didn’t embellish that … and I would say both of our parents want us to be happy … I do understand that it’s not awkward for us to be together because it’s us.”

The “Real Housewives of Miami” star admitted that her romance with the Trophy Room store founder “probably is awkward” for her ex-husband, Scottie Pippen, and his former Chicago Bull teammate Michael — due to the nature of their alleged feud.

However, the mom of four said she and Marcus “weren’t a part of that.”

“I feel like for them it probably is weird, it probably is weird for your dad. I can’t be mad. I understand,” she continued. “[But] Oh my God, I was traumatized. I was like, ‘What are we going to do? People think I lied.’”

Marcus, on the other hand, thought the whole situation was hilarious. He said on the podcast that his father texted him after his comments went viral, assuring his second-born son that he did not mean any harm.

Earlier this month, Michael, 60, gave a resounding “No!” to paparazzi when asked in Paris if he gave his approval over his son’s relationship with his former teammate’s ex-wife.

His reaction came in stark contrast to what Larsa said while appearing on the “Tamron Hall Show” in February.

“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,” she explained at the time, adding that both sets of parents just want to see their children “happy.”

“We’ve spent holidays together, and it’s good. We’re in a great place.”
