EXCLUSIVE: Bikini-clad Larsa Pippen, 48, and shirtless Marcus Jordan, 31, get VERY cozy together in Miami… despite RHOM star insisting they are just ‘friends’ amid swirling dating rumors
Despite her recently insisting they are just ‘friends’, Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan put on a very cuddly display as they hit the beach together in Miami amid months of dating rumors.
Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife and Michael Jordan’s son continued to raise eyebrows as they strolled across the beach with their arms wrapped around each other on Sunday.
It’s no wonder Marcus, 31, could hardly keep his hands off Larsa, 48, with the reality star clad in a skimpy black bikini that left little of her envious body to the imagination.

The source continued, ‘She was hugging and kissing him, and she was practically sitting on his lap by the end of the dinner. It became a bit of a spectacle to onlookers as it was quite distracting.’
Another insider claimed that the pair ‘are dating and have been spending more time together in recent weeks.’
But in the midst of their alleged romance the two have been trying to keep a low profile on account of the rift between Marcus’ father Michael Jordan and Larsa’s ex-husband Scottie Pippen.
‘They are trying to keep it on the down low because of the rift between Scottie and Michael,’ the person said.

Marcus is Michael’s second oldest son. He played college basketball at the University of Central Florida but did not turn pro after graduating in 2013 with a degree in hospitality management.
Larsa was married to Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen from 1997 to 2021, though both had filed for divorce years earlier.
Michael and Scottie were the 1 to 2 punch on what many consider the greatest basketball team in the history of the sport, the six-time champion Chicago Bulls, who won three consecutive titles on two occasions in the 1990s.
The pair played together from 1987 to 1998, not counting Jordan’s brief retirement to play minor league baseball.
While they were a dynamic duo on the court, the ESPN documentary The Last Dance showed tensions between them.
