Michael Jordan has expressed his disapproval of his son dating the ex-wife of his former teammate.
This statement comes after a lot of trouble could have been avoided had he spoken up earlier. Scottie Pippen has been expressing his grievances since the release of “The Last Dance,” and it’s clear that he has taken jabs at Jordan due to MJ’s son, Marcus, being involved with his estranged spouse, Larsa Pippen.
Larsa managed to keep this relationship under wraps for some time. Pippen, who played a crucial role in the Bulls’ dominance in the 90s alongside Michael, never would have imagined that a teammate’s child would end up with the mother of his own children.
Life can be cruel in unexpected ways. Michael Jordan’s recent declaration will surely let Pippen know that he does not support this relationship, and perhaps, in time, they can rebuild their friendship.
In a video clip, Jordan is caught entering a car and is asked about his approval of Marcus and Larsa’s relationship.
Firmly shaking his head, Jordan responds with a resounding “No.” It is surprising that Jordan chose to address this matter considering his usual habit of ignoring such rumors.

However, his response itself is not surprising. It would have been wise for him to address this situation much earlier.
