‘Real Housewives of Miami’ star Larsa Pippen, born Larsa Younan, appeared as a guest on the Hollywood Raw podcast’s latest episode and reacted to the rumors regarding that she started dating basketball player Tristan Thompson after he and Khloé Kardashian had begun their relationship.
The ex-wife of former professional basketball player Scottie Pippen said that she was hanging out with Thompson before the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star, and claimed that she introduced him to Kardashian. She revealed:
“I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloé. Before Khloé or any of them knew he existed. I was seeing him, I had him come to L.A., I brought him to a party Kim had. I introduced him to all of them.”
Pippen, who filed for divorce from her husband Scottie in 2018 – after started seeing Thompson -, she did not ruin Khloé’s life by hooking up with her partner; it is not even her personality. She also stated that there is no conflict between herself and Kardashian, and added she is okay if her partner wants to see someone else.
“Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever. I’m the type of person that doesn’t chase what’s not for me. I will never chase a man; I will never put a leash on a man. I don’t do that. I feel like, let you be great. If you want to be with other people, go ahead. I’m great by myself.“
At the end of the conversation, Pippen sent well wishes to Kardashian and Thompson. She said she applauds them for working this out in order to keep their kids home together and happy.
“If they love each other, then God bless. (…) I think it’s great they are trying to work on their relationship. I’m really proud of them. I applaud them.”
