Larsa Pippen Steps Out In Public For The First Time Since Scottie Pippen Divorce News!

Last week, former Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen was seen at Art Basel week in Miami  — stepping out at a public event for the first time since her husband, NBA legend Scottie Pippen, filed for divorce in October after 19 years of marriage.

The 42-year-old was at the DuJour Media Art Basel Party at the Confidante Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida, to support artist Mr. Brainwash.

According to a source, Larsa, who came with a friend as well as her brother, looked “absolutely gorgeous” in a form-fitting green mini dress, translucent heels, natural makeup and relaxed waves.

“She looked simply amazing,” a partygoer told People.

Inside the soirée, Larsa hung out with friends David Grutman — the owner of nightclub LIV — and his wife Isabela, as well as Pastor Rich and Kim Kardashian West‘s BFF Jonathan Cheban, the onlooker reveals, adding that Larsa “seemed happy and relaxed.”

Larsa took to social media and shared a photo of her posing with Cheban and The Hills alum Audrina Patridge.

The event was initially intended to honor cover star Kris Jenner, but the reality matriarch canceled earlier in the week. After the event, Larsa, the Grutmans and Cheban went to developer Craig Robbins’ home for a relaxed dinner, the insider tells People.

According to Florida court records, the NBA legend filed for divorce from the former Real Housewives of Miami star on Tuesday, Oct. 18. Larsa was notified of the filing that Thursday.

“This is a very difficult time for Mr. Pippen. He is hopeful that the divorce will be swift and amicable,” Stanley said in a previous statement to People. “We are respecting his request to protect his privacy and the privacy of his children during the dissolution of marriage proceedings.

As previously reported, according to court documents obtained by Radar Online via Broward County Circuit Court, it's revealed that Scottie has asked for 'ultimate responsibility' of the couple's children: Scottie Jr, Preston, Justin and Sophia.

He also announced he will file a Petition for Relocation on behalf of the children, and plans to relocate them to Chicago, Illinois. If forced to stay in Florida, Scottie said he should have the kids the “majority” of the time.

“If the Petition…is not granted, then it is in the minor children’s best interests that the Husband be awarded the majority of timesharing with the minor children during the pendency of this action and permanently thereafter,” the lawyers said.

Scottie, who is worth an estimated $50 million, pleaded with the court to not demand he pay alimony to his wife Larsa. In addition, it is claimed he requested the right to 'amend' the couple's prenup.

Meanwhile, Larsa claims that a prenup, signed in 1997 with terms that favored Scottie, was nullified a year ago in a joint agreement by the husband and wife.

She is demanding spousal support, the family home and school tuition fees for their four children. Larsa also wants the kids to stay in Florida, while Scottie wants to move them to Chicago.

Larsa is also seeking to use Scottie's life insurance policy as collateral in case he does not pay her after they split.

There's been accusations of infidelity on both sides, however it's unclear whether these alleged rumors are true or not. Scottie was rumored to be romantically involved with a Sports Illustrated model meanwhile Larsa was rumored of having a fling with rapper Future. However, both the rapper and Larsa have denied the accusations.
