Larsa Pippen says she is ‘trying to avoid’ athletes after splits from Scottie Pippen and Malik Beasley… before sharing a stunning bikini selfie
She was married to Scottie Pippen for over 20 years and then had a relationship with another NBA star, Malik Beasley.
But now, Larsa Pippen, 47, is turning over a new leaf when it comes to her dating life, recently telling Us Weekly that she is ‘trying to avoid athletes.’
Following that sentiment, on Thursday the Real Housewives Of Miami personality posted a bikini selfie to Instagram with the caption: ‘Become the energy you want to attract.’

Despite her track record Larsa said about dating sports stars: ‘It’s not like I go look for it.’ The mom-of-four added, ‘It’s just there, you know?’
Larsa compared being around professional basketball players to nurses being around doctors.
‘It’s almost like a nurse and a doctor — if you’re a nurse and you’ve worked in a hospital, you’re more likely to like have friends that are doctors,’ she explained to the news outlet.
‘So, I feel like I’ve been in the basketball world for so long that I feel like I’m just surrounded by that world,’ she added.

In a cycle: ‘I feel like I’ve been in the basketball world for so long that I feel like I’m just surrounded by that world,’ Larsa said
Kim Kardashian’s former BFF and the former Chicago Bull were married from 1997 until Larsa filed for divorce in 2018.
It wasn’t finalized until December 15, 2021, making the jewelry designer officially single.
But that didn’t stop the reality TV star from pursuing other relationships, including a four-month stint with Minnesota Timberwolves player Malik, who was married to Montana Yao at the time.
She later called the relationship ‘childish’ and told the magazine, ‘I don’t wanna give too much life to my past relationship. I just think you learn from all your mistakes.
‘You grow every day, and I just feel like I’m in a better place today than I was yesterday.’
When it came to Beasley, Larsa told RHOM costar Lisa Hochstein that her ex-husband wasn’t a fan.
‘When Malik got 90 days or something in jail he sent it to me,’ she said. ‘He’s like, “Go ahead, keep talking to these losers.”‘
The Pippens share Scotty Jr., 21, Preston, 19, Justin, 16, and Sophia, 13.
