(MAINNEWS) – Things are getting series between Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan — despite the pair denying their relationship for months.
Pippen, 48, and Jordan, 32 declared their love for each other with sweet Valentine’s Day tributes on Tuesday.
“My forever Valentine ❤️,” the “Real Housewives of Miami” star captioned a picture of the pair at the beach.
Meanwhile, Jordan — who is the son of NBA legend Michael Jordan — posted a flick of Pippen holding two bouquets of flowers.
“Three words, 8 letters💖✨” he wrote. “🌹Happy Valentines Day, Babe❤️🔥.”
Despite the loved-up captions, the pair’s relationship has drawn criticism given Pippen’s complex relationship with the Jordan family — and their 16-year age gap.
The reality star’s ex-husband, Scottie Pippen, had a falling out with Marcus’ dad following their stint with Chicago Bulls in the 1990s. Things apparently got even worse between the two after ESPN’s 2020 docuseries “The Last Dance” aired.
Nonetheless, Larsa and Marcus first sparked dating rumors in September 2022 and after months of speculation, they finally went Instagram-official last month.
“✔️Checks over stripes🏆@trophyroomstore,” the reality TV star captioned a photo of the twosome cozying up in front of a giant floral arrangement of Michael’s iconic No. 23 jersey.
Prior to that, Larsa claimed the pair were just friends — regardless of the dozens of paparazzi pictures showing them packing on the PDA.
“We’ve been friends for the last couple of years, and I’m in a place right now where I’m finally open to dating,” she told us in December. “Every time I’m seen out with someone, [people] make it out to be more than it actually is, and it’s normally nothing.”
She added, “So yeah, I’m just dating right now and focusing on my businesses, my family and having fun.”
