Last week, former NBA star Scottie Pippen has filed for divorce from ex-cast of Bravo network's The Real Housewives of Miami, Larsa Pippen. This came as one of the shocking celebrity divorces because they have been married for nineteen years and have four children together.
Additionally, the 51-year old former basketball player has reportedly demanded for full custody of their four children. According to TMZ, it was on October 21st when Scottie Pippen has filed divorce and submitted documents to Florida.
The couple reportedly signed a pre-nuptial agreement, stating that the former reality star will be receiving a certain amount of money for child support. However, in a new report from Daily Mail, Scottie is apparently seeking full custody of their four children - Sophia Pippen, Scotty Pippen Jr., Justin Pippen and Preston Pippen.
According to the site, Scottie's legal counsel has reportedly already submitted the required documents that state the former NBA star to be granted full custody of the kids. The documents also state that Scottie may be granted amendment from the prenup agreement of the couple to prevent him from giving his former wife alimony for nineteen years.
Additionally, the former athlete also requested for a grant of his children to be moved from Miami to Chicago. But if denied by the ourt, he would just ask for the court to grant him the "majority time."
The reason for Scottie's filing was unknown at first. But later on, hip-hop star Future has been tailed with the issue of the couple's divorce. It has been reported that the rapper and the former reality star met at an event in Miami, where they apparently developed a friendship. Some have claimed that this was allegedly Larsa's revenge when Scottie brought another woman at a playoff game before.
However, both parties have denied this allegation. Furthermore, according to a source, there might be a chance that Scottie and Larsa Pippen two could still talk it out to save their 19 years of marriage. A possible reconciliation of the couple might happen instead of finalizing their divorce.
