Weeks after reports denying a romance between the two, it is being reported that Larsa Pippen is, in fact, ‘dating’ Michael Jordan‘s son Marcus.

The 48-year-old socialite was spotted getting cozy with the basketball star, 31, at Catch Steak in NYC, according to Us Weekly.

An onlooker told the publication: ‘They are definitely an item. As the night progressed it was obvious to everyone in the restaurant that she was really into him.’

The source continued, ‘She was hugging and kissing him, and she was practically sitting on his lap by the end of the dinner. It became a bit of a spectacle to onlookers as it was quite distracting.’

Another insider claimed that the pair ‘are dating and have been spending more time together in recent weeks.’

But in the midst of their alleged romance the two have been trying to keep a low profile. 

‘They are trying to keep it on the down low because of the rift between Scottie and Michael,’ the person said.

Speaking on the popular basketball documentary The Last Dance, Scottie wrote in his November 2021 memoir Unguarded, ‘They glorified Michael Jordan while not giving nearly enough praise to me and my proud teammates.’

The Netflix project was released in spring 2020. Scottie added in his book, ‘I had expected much more. When I was first told about it over a year earlier, I couldn’t wait to tune in, knowing it would feature rare footage.’

And he condemned his former teammate for the portrayal of the Bulls team, stating, ‘Michael deserved a large portion of the blame. The producers had granted him editorial control of the final product. 

‘The doc couldn’t have been released otherwise. He was the leading man and the director.’

Jordan and Pippen raised eyebrows earlier this month after they were spotted on what appeared to be a double date.

Afterward, TMZ reported the duo were purely friends who happen to run in a similar social circle.

They were seen hanging out at the downtown Miami restaurant Zuma for 45 minutes, sources said, and didn’t show any overt signs of romance.  

They added, however, that Larsa became ‘skittish’ when she started to realize cameras were set on them.

Marcus is Michael’s second oldest son. He played college basketball at the University of Central Florida but did not turn pro after graduating in 2013 with a degree in hospitality management.

Larsa was married to Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen from 1997 to 2021, though both had filed for divorce years earlier. 

Michael and Scottie were the 1 to 2 punch on what many consider the greatest basketball team in the history of the sport.

The pair played together from 1987 to 1998, not counting Jordan’s brief retirement to play minor league baseball. 

While they were a dynamic duo on the court, the ESPN documentary The Last Dance showed tensions between them.
