The Real Housewives of Miami mom kicked off the weekend by congratulating her youngest son, Justin Pippen, on his commitment to the Univerity of Michigan. The Sierra Canyon High School senior announced his college pick in an April 19 Instagram post, which showed him rocking a Wolverines basketball jersey alongside UofM men’s hoops coach, Dusty A. May.

“So proud of you my love,” Larsa wrote on Instagram. “We’re going to Michigan.”

“I like the feel of the campus and school. I wanted to be at a big school,” he told the outlet. “I was really going to make a decision between my other schools. Then I got a call from Coach Dusty May. I wanted to give him a chance. We set up a Zoom call. I went on a visit and I felt it was the right place and situation for me. Coach Dusty May has been straight up with me. He sees me playing both on and off the ball.”

Justin said he’s confident Coach May will help him reach his end goal of playing in the NBA, just like his Hall-of-Famer dad, Scottie Pippen, and his oldest brother, Scotty Pippen Jr., who plays for the Memphis Grizzlies. 

The 6-foot-4 high schooler also told ESPN that his parents supported his commitment to the Wolverines: “They let me make my own decision,” Justin said about his mom and dad. “They know it’s great academically. They both spoke with Coach May.”

Larsa Pippen opens up about her split from Scottie Pippen

Larsa and Scottie tied the knot in 1997 and went on to welcome four children together, including their second-oldest son, Preston Pippen, and their daughter, Sophia Pippen. After several separations and reconciliations, Larsa and Scottie finalized their divorce in 2021.

The Miami mom spoke about the split during RHOM Season 6, saying she felt “trapped” while married to the NBA legend.

“There’s nothing worse than being in a relationship where you can’t leave because you are financially stuck because of your partner,” she said in an episode interview. “That’s like, the worst.”

About a year after her divorce was finalized, Larsa began dating Marcus Jordan, the son of Scottie’s former Chicago Bulls teammate Michael Jordan. Fast-forward to March 26, 2024, when Larsa confirmed she and Marcus had called it quits. The Miami 'Wife suggested the split was amicable, as she and Marcus were simply on “different journey[s].”

“I think when you’re alone, you kind of either miss the person or realize maybe you’re not my guy,” she said during an appearance on the Amy and T.J. podcast. “And I feel like that made me realize that I don’t think he’s my guy… I feel like I have to be true to who I am, what I’m doing, and what he’s doing, you know? I want him to be happy. He’s a great guy, but I just don’t feel like it’s for me.”
