Multiple insiders have revealed that Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan have parted ways due to “tension” stemming from family conflicts.
According to a source exclusively speaking to Page Six on Monday, the “Real Housewives of Miami” star has removed all traces of their relationship from her Instagram, igniting breakup speculation.
The source disclosed that they are currently “taking space from each other” as a result of the “tension” within their relationship, which was exacerbated by public disapproval from Marcus’ father, Michael Jordan.
While Marcus insisted that Michael’s disapproval was in jest, Larsa was reportedly deeply embarrassed by the comment. Additionally, ongoing animosity between Michael Jordan and Larsa’s ex-husband, Scottie Pippen, added further strain to their relationship.
“The history between Michael and Scottie made things complicated, even if Larsa and Marcus did their best to make it a non-issue,” the insider explains.
We’re told that “family comes before everything” for both Marcus and the reality star.
“At the end of the day, Michael is Marcus’ dad and Scottie is the father of Larsa’s children,” the source says, referring to Scottie and Larsa’s kids: Scottie Jr., 23, Preston, 22, Justin, 19, and Sophia, 16.
“There is a baseline loyalty for each of them that made the relationship difficult to navigate,” the insider adds.
The insider emphasized the significance of family for both Marcus and Larsa, stating that loyalty to their respective families made navigating their relationship challenging.
Another source close to “RHOM” production expressed surprise at the split, highlighting that their breakup appeared sudden and unexpected to Larsa’s castmates.
Rumors of trouble began when Larsa removed all evidence of her relationship with Marcus from social media and posted a cryptic quote about choosing one’s partner wisely. Marcus also deleted photos with Larsa from his Instagram and hinted at their breakup in a post referencing Drake lyrics.
Despite recent celebrations together, including Marcus’ birthday in Miami, the couple has officially gone their separate ways.
Larsa and Marcus initially sparked dating rumors in September 2022 and confirmed their relationship on Instagram in January 2023.
