Larsa Pippen says the two briefly chatted about her husband, basketball star Scottie Pippen
Larsa Pippen is setting the record straight.
Pippen commented on an Instagram post that showed a headline accusing her of getting “friendly” and “flirty” with the NBA player, insisting her conversation with Humphries was brief — and all about her husband, basketball star Scottie Pippen.
“The convo lasted all of 3 minutes,” she wrote in a comment captured by Comments by Celebs. “He told me he’s known Scottie since he was 14 and that he loves him and I said so do I.”
Humphries opened up about their split while announcing his retirement from the NBA last month.
“Our actual relationship was 100% real,” he wrote in The Players’ Tribune. “When it was clear that it wasn’t working … what can I say? It sucked. It’s never easy to go through the embarrassment of something like that — with your friends, with your family…. But when it plays out so publicly, in front of the world, it’s a whole other level. It was brutal.”
The former New Jersey Nets player said he “didn’t know how to handle” the downfall of his marriage, “because I never thought I was going to be famous in that way.”
Humphries also said he hoped that in his retirement, people remember him for his contributions to the sport.
“I know that most people will always see me as That F****** Guy from TV. And I get it. I signed up for it,” Humphries wrote. “I don’t want any pity at all. But I hope that true fans of basketball remember me as a grinder, as a guy who transformed into a heck of a rebounder, and as a guy who always tried to put the game in the best light.”
Kardashian last spoke about their painful split and prolonged divorce proceedings in 2017.
“At the time I just thought, ‘Holy sh-t, I’m 30-years-old — I better get this together. I better get married,’” she said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “I think a lot of girls do go through that, where they freak out thinking they’re getting old and all their friends are having kids. So, it was more of that situation. But I knew on the honeymoon it wasn’t going to work out.”
