Her dating life, though, took a new and interesting turn when she was spotted with Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus Jordan. Their frequent spotting has led people to believe that they are in a relationship.

Many people, including 7x NBA champion and Los Angeles Lakers great Robert Horry, have weighed in and addressed this. In his podcast, the ‘Big Shot Bob Pod with Robert Horry’, he asked everyone to leave them alone. They discussed the recent heckling that the couple was subjected to in the SoFi stadium.

As they replayed the footage, there was roaring laughter among the panel. Despite Larsa and Marcus’ “weird and uncomfortable dynamic”, Robert Horry still stuck to his guns. He said it was best to leave them be. “You can talk about it. But leave them be. They are at a freaking game”, Horry defended the rumored couple.

Larsa and Marcus were heckled by a fan who rushed to question their intentions. They had come to attend the match between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. The fan approached them and called out Larsa specifically.

The heckler called the alleged couple out because of the rivalry that Marcus’s father, Michael Jordan, and Larsa Pippen’s ex-husband, Scottie Pippen currently share. Notably, Pippen was displeased with the narrative of ‘The Last Dance’ docuseries, criticizing it for “glorifying” Jordan without giving proper dues to other Bulls teammates like himself.

Larsa Pippen recently responded to the heckling. She said, “I just met him three years ago, I never knew him or his family“. She added that they weren’t family friends like everyone assumed.

While Robert Horry went on to sympathize with Larsa and Marcus, another former NBA player was on the other end of the spectrum. Jalen Rose slammed Larsa Pippen and advised her to see Marcus as a “nephew”. The couple’s age gap, nearly a 17-year difference, has also been a topic of immense discussion.
