Scottie Pippen is divorcing his trophy wife of 19 years, Larsa Pippen. Pippen filed the papers in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida courthouse earlier this week.

The 51-year-old Chicago Bulls legend has 7 children — 4 with his soon to be ex-wife Larsa and three from previous relationships.

Larsa, a 42-year-old Chicago native who met Pippen at the height of his career is ready to move on to greener pastures. As rumor has it, that she cheated on Pippen with rapper “Future” (pictured with him below). Larsa being best friends with Kim Ho-Dashian and apart of her girlfriend squad, it’s no secret she pointed her best friend in the direction of new money and marketable stability.

Us Weekly — Larsa’s rep issued a statement to Us Weekly. “After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage,” the statement said. “Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their four beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. … She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”

lebron-james-produces-first-ever-nba-fashion-show-for-all-star-weekend-1103070-TwoByOneTwitter activists are pressuring Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James to stage a sit out until the prosecutor’s office indicts a cop for the murder of 12-year-old Tamir Rice last year.

On Monday, the prosecutor’s office announced there would be no indictment against the cop who shot Tamir 2 seconds after exiting his patrol car on Nov. 22, 2014.

Twitter.com activists have since pressured LeBron to lead a sit out protest of the entire Cavaliers team.

NBA Star Dwight Howard Accused of Beating 6-Year-Old Son with Belt Buckle


Royce_DwightFormer reality TV star Royce Reed (pictured right), is accusing her baby daddy, NBA player Dwight Howard of beating their 6-year old son, Braylon with a belt buckle. The Cobb County Police Department (where Howard resides off-season), is investigating the accusations.

According to TMZ, the Dept. of Children and Family Services in Florida (DFS) determined there wasn’t enough evidence of child abuse to go forward, but it turns out the incident occurred in Georgia. Howard admits he hit his kid with a belt, but says he didn’t know it was wrong because he was hit as a kid.

Howard’s baby mama Royce Reed is “shopping her baseless allegations” to Georgia authorities although Florida’s Dept. of Children and Family Services found her claims had “no merit.” For the record, DFS found the allegations credible, but concluded they did not meet the standard of proof required for formal action. However, Royce is adamantly pushing the issue.

Dwight in turn, has filed for full parental custody, siting that Royce uses medicinal child care for their son in order to control him, keep him calm and to take naps.  

In the meantime, a petition started circulating by concerned citizens urging the Rockets to suspend Howard from the team.

Royce Reed Congratulates Dwight Howard On Being a Daddy Again

Reed took to her twitter page to tweet a sarcastic congratulations to Dwight and his latest baby mama, by stating the obvious “Congratulations to @DwightHoward & @Christine_vest on the birth of their baby boy! Bray has a baby brother!!! Yay! Had no idea!”

Royce Reed tweet

Earlier this year Royce posted a collage (pictured below) with Braylon, herself and the two other women with their girls by Dwight. She wants the world to know that Dwight Howard is the father of several children not just hers. Royce also added on Twitter that Dwight hadn’t seen Braylon since February. I guess not he’s been busy apparently.
