He’s 32, while she’s 48. In an interview with Tamron Hall, she opened up about how she met MJ’s son. “We have a lot of mutual friends, and so we’re kind of in the same circle,” she explained, noting that the duo have not known each other as long as some people believe.
The Real Housewives star added that she has been spending time with Marcus’ family, including his dad, Michael. “I’ve recently been hanging out with them, but I don’t really want to talk about them,” she said. “I feel like it’s not about, you know, my parents or his parents—they’re all happy; our whole family’s fine.” She also added, “My kids love Marcus,” she revealed. “We travel together; my kids really enjoy spending time with him. I feel like I’m in a great place, and that’s the most important thing.” So are Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan still together, and where is their relationship taking them? Read more to find out.
Are Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan still together?
Are Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan still together? Yes, and they’re still going strong. Speaking with ET at BravoCon, Larsa said, “I will be engaged once I get a ring.” She was joined by RHOM co-star Lisa Hochstein at the event, but added that she “can’t be responsible” for when Marcus asks. “We love each other, you know? It’s going to happen. I just feel like the timing is right. It’s in the works.”
She previously opened up about the possibility of marriage. “I think so; I liked being married,” Larsa told E! News. “I like marriage; I feel like it’s great. It’s great to be able to build with someone and plan the future with someone. So, marriage to me is kind of important.”
However, she has reservations about an actual wedding ceremony. “I don’t know; I never thought about that,” the RHOM star shared. “I’m not sure how our families would do with that, but I definitely would think about it.” She continued gushing about her boyfriend. “I feel like it’s a great year for us,” Larsa said. “There’s a lot of highs and a lot of lows. We had great trips; we had so many good times, but at the same time, there was a lot of drama.”
As the son of one of the greatest basketball players in the world, Marcus was asked about his father’s approval in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on July 5, 2023. He assured me that Michael loved the couple. “Yeah. Oh Yeah.” “We spent Thanksgiving together last year, and, you know, my family loves her. They think she’s great. And ultimately, I think my family just wants to see me happy. And so as long as I’m happy, they’re happy with, you know, where I’m living,” Marcus told the site.
“Everybody had an opinion at first. I think there was some shock and interest early on, but I think that was the whole point of us trying to spend some family time together during the holidays,” he continued. “At least for me, if we’re going to be in the media, you know, I kind of need to introduce you to my mom and my mom’s side and my dad’s side. And so, I think that went well, and so far, so good.”
In a podcast episode of Separation Anxiety With Hosts Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan, Larsa and Marcus addressed how their family dealt with their age difference. “I don’t think there were ever any hurdles; I just think there was some shock value to the fact that we were dating. I caught maybe some people on my side of the family off guard a little bit,” he said.
He continued, “I think once people really got to understand and see us together, it made everything a little more comfortable. My parents want to see me happy. Your family wants to see you happy. That’s all you could ever ask for.”
He currently runs THE TROPHY ROOM in Orlando, Florida, an elevated retail boutique that was inspired by his father’s trophy room in their family residence. The couple confirmed that they’ve spoken about the possibility of having kids together. “There’s been conversation,” he said on the podcast. “When we go and we meet people, or I’m introducing you to some of my friends, or you introduce me to some of your friends, I feel like it gets brought up.”
“I do feel like I’m happy because I have four kids, and I feel like you don’t have kids, so basically, it’d be a question for you. Because I’m really fulfilled with my four children,” Larsa replied.
Larsa defended her relationship on The Real Housewives of Miami’s Season 5 reunion. “I feel like a lot of people don’t understand, like, I didn’t know him,” she said about Michael’s son. “I just met him a few years ago. I had never met him before. I was with Scottie the very last year that he played with Michael.”
The reality star continued: “Michael and his wife were going through a divorce, so I never met his wife, never met his kids. It wasn’t like we had families that were intertwined. I never knew them.”
In an interview with TMZ, Marcus Jordan talked about being raised by a famous dad. “The best thing is, honestly, there’s just a lot of perks,” he told the gossip site. “We were raised relatively normal. I say ‘relative’ because I didn’t take my first commercial flight until I was a junior in high school. I grew up playing PlayStation on a private jet. So it’s not normal. But my mom’s from the South Side of Chicago, and so she made sure we stayed grounded and visited my cousins on the South Side a lot. We had a somewhat normal upbringing, going to public middle school, et cetera, et cetera.”
As for the downsides, he said, “The negative, or the worst thing, would just be having to operate under the assumption that people are always wanting something from you.” “Whether it was a Jordan shoe or a connection of some sort, You have to operate under the assumption that people are coming around with their hands out. That’s probably the only downfall.”
