The couple has been married since 1997 and have four children together – Sophia, Justin, Preston, and Scottie Jr.

Pippen, a Hall of Famer, also has three children from previous relationships.

“After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage,” Larsa’s representative told ET.

“Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their four beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family,” said the rep.

Scottie Pippen won six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990’s. In 1996, he was named one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players, and in 2010 became the member of the Basketball Hall of Fame.

During his NBA career, Pippen played for the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Portland TrailBlazers. Pippen played in a total of 1178 NBA games (1053 started), averaging 16.1 ppg, 6.4 rpg and 5.2 apg in 34.9 minutes per game.
