When a high-profile couple is in the midst of getting divorced, their past often gets dragged through the headlines as public knowledge.
This is one of those times for Scottie Pippen and his wife, Larsa.
Days after the NBA Hall of Famer and six-time champion initially filed for divorce late last week, TMZ Sports released a report Wednesday about police responding to the Pippens' Florida home following two separate but heated arguments earlier this month.
TMZ reports that cops came to the Pippen household following an argument on Oct. 4 and that Larsa told officers that she was "scared" of her husband.
"She stated they were having marital problems and that he raises his voice to her, yells at her and scares her," the report said, according to TMZ.
When cops spoke with Scottie, the NBA legend informed them that "he was upset and did break the screen on his phone in frustration."
Two days prior, on October 2, there was also a heated argument between them.
The timeline seemingly checks out, as Pippen filed for divorce late last week with subsequent reports pointing to the rapper's alleged relationship with Larsa as the reason why.
Earlier this week, reports also surfaced about Pippen requesting that his prenup be amended, so Larsa can't touch any of his $50 million fortune. That same report had Pippen asking a Florida court for full custody of their four children.
But the one silver lining in this otherwise messy situation is that new reports point to the couple allegedly speaking, with Larsa's rep saying that they're likely to reconcile. The same rep claims that the reason for their recent friction is that Scottie accepted an ESPN gig and wants to move the family to Chicago and Larsa wants to remain in Miami.
Let's see how this turns out.
