Larsa Pippen has hit back at fans after copping the blame for her divorce with NBA legend Scottie Pippen.

Scottie Pippen is back in the news after he featured heavily in ESPN’s 10-part docu-series ‘The Last Dance’, which chronicles the the Chicago Bulls’ famous dynasty of the 1990s.

But Scottie isn’t the only Pippen who’s been grabbing the headlines.

Scottie’s ex-wife Larsa has been savaged by fans over her latest social media activity.

The former ‘Housewives of Miami’ star posted a photo to Instagram recently with the caption: “Find someone who’ll put u first!!”

In response one follower wrote: “Too bad you didn't put Scottie Pippen first.”

Larsa fired back and said: “Really? I did everything for him literally everything.”

When another fan wrote: “That's what Scottie did smh”, Larsa replied: "How do u know that?”

The person commenting then said: “@larsapippen bro he was loyal to you no? Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't you do adultery first?”

To which Larsa spat back: “Stop tripping dude u don't know what you're talking about. I held him down and still do.”

“Just bc I don't air his dirty laundry doesn't mean it doesn't stink I just don't wanna do his laundry anymore.”

Larsa Pippen slams Scottie pity party

It’s not the first time Larsa has responded to controversy stemming from ‘The Last Dance’.

One of the major takeaways from the first two episodes of the doco was Pippen’s ridiculous contract.

The man held up as a central pillar of a dynasty and a perfect complement to Jordan signed a seven-year, US$18 million extension in 1991.

As the NBA took off over the next decade, the contract quickly became one of the biggest steals in modern sports history.

It was so bad that Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf looked physically uncomfortable talking about it.

Many fans familiar with Pippen, but not well-read on him, were shocked to hear that Jordan’s No. 2 was the NBA’s 122nd highest-paid player at $2.78 million during his final year with the Bulls.

But amid the renewed backlash, Larsa moved to play down the controversy and said Scottie certainly isn’t struggling financially.

“Thx for your concern Scottie did OK #TheLastDance,” Larsa wrote on Twitter, including a screenshot of Pippen’s reported career earnings of $109 million.

The majority of Pippen’s career earnings came from stints at the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers after he was traded away from Chicago.

Scottie and Larsa divorced in 2018 after a 21-year marriage. They have four children together.
