Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan bring their ‘friendship’ to Miami restaurant Papi Steak on NYE… as she’s joined by her RHOM co-star Alexia Nepola

Two weeks after again insisting they were just friends, The Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen and NBA legend Michael Jordan’s son Marcus enjoyed New Year’s Eve dinner together at Papi Steak in Miami Beach.

At 48, the divorced mother-of-four is 16 years older than the Trophy Room founder/CEO, but they’ve been inseparable since their first sighting at Zuma Miami on September 4.

Marcus intimately touched the small of Larsa’s back as they entered the expensive steak house owned by David Einhorn and David Grutman.

Pippen (born Younan) slipped her curvaceous 5ft2in figure into a €320 Jean Paul Gaultier ‘Blue Dots’ print mesh top, matching €290 ‘Blue Dots’ print pants, and peep-toe heels.

Jordan looked far more casual in a backwards baseball cap, white ‘Human Robot’ T-shirt, black faded jeans, and matching sneakers.

Hours later, the Syrian-American influencer – who changed into a black gown – and the 6ft3in Chicago native boarded the Utopia IV yacht for a romantic New Year’s Eve cruise.

Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and five-time Grammy nominee Fat Joe were among the performers on the fancy boat bash.

‘[Larsa] is a single woman. Who’s gonna be attracted to her at this point in her life? Younger men!’ retired NBA star Gilbert Arenas told Vlad TV on Thursday.

‘Because she needs that attention, she needs someone to look at her like she’s the prized trophy. The only person that’s going to do that is from the younger generation. “Oh! That’s Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife!” That’s the only person who will get excited. No 55-year-old man is gonna get excited! Come on!’

On December 21, Marcus shared a sexy bikini-clad snap of Larsa relaxing on a sun lounger at Wymara Resort & Villas on Turks and Caicos Islands.

‘We’re friends,’ Pippen insisted on the December 12th episode of Watch What Happens Live.

‘But I think a lot of people think that our families are really close and intertwined and they really weren’t…Like I never really knew Marcus’ mom or them, I just recently met them a couple of years ago.’

Since 2016, Jordan has run online-only, high-end sneaker store Trophy Room, which was inspired by the trophy room at his famous 59-year-old father’s mansion.

Michael just so happens to be the estranged teammate of NBA legend Scottie Pippen, whom the Bravo-lebrity divorced in 2021 after 20 years of marriage and four children – Scottie Jr., 22; Preston, 20; Justin, 17; and Sophia, 14.
