Surprisingly, Larsa was previously married to Scottie Pippen, a teammate of Marcus’ father Michael Jordan. They tied the knot in 1997 when Larsa was 23, and Scottie was 32. Notably, he earned his fifth NBA title with the Chicago Bulls that same year and was at the height of his basketball career.

Larsa and Scottie have four children: Scotty Jr, Preston, Justin, and Sophia. The exes stayed married for two decades before filing for divorce in 2016. The couple attempted to reconcile, but Larsa filed for divorce the second time in 2018, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Their amicable separation was finalized in December 2021, and the duo now continue to co-parent their minor children together.

The Traitors season 2 episodes air three times on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 9 p.m. ET. This will continue until the last episode will be released on January 26.
