In February, Larsa Pippen told Tamron Hall on national television that Marcus Jordan‘s parents are “fine” with them dating. The reality TV star–and former wife of Scottie Pippen–also revealed that she’d been spending quality time with the Jordans, ultimately receiving their blessing on the budding romance.

But new paparazzi footage seems to contradict Larsa’s claims. In fact, Michael Jordan displayed his disapproval of their dating with one word and gesture.
Michael Jordan Isn’t Here For A Marcus & Larsa Romance
Media reps caught up with Michael Jordan in Paris on Sunday (July 2). Photographers clicked away as the NBA star exited Matignon, a venue doubling as a restaurant and club. Meanwhile, one, in particular, inquired about the 32-year-old’s relationship with Larsa, 48.
“Hey, Mr. Jordan, what do you think of Marcus and Larsa Pippen together,” someone behind a recording camera asked.
Michael Jordan laughed heartily before the videographer asked again, “You approve of it?” This time, the champ didn’t hold back, loudly saying, “NO” and doubling down by shaking his head “no” a few times before climbing into a waiting black truck.
TMZ first reported the video.

As mentioned, it was only a few months ago when Larsa confidently proclaimed that “everyone,” including her parents and Michael and Juanita Jordan,” was “happy” and “fine.” She even claimed she had spent holidays with the Jordans.
“I’ve recently been hanging out with [Marcus’ parents], but I don’t really want to talk about them. I feel like it’s not about my parents, his parents. They’re all happy, our whole family is fine. I feel like it’s more about where I am, where he is,” Larsa told Tamron Hall. “I feel like we’re in a great place. We motivate each other. We’re really happy being together and I feel like that’s the most important thing.”
Did Michael Jordan change his tune in the last few months? Or did Larsa stretch the truth? The answer to both questions remains unclear.
Larsa and Marcus have not publicly reacted to Michael’s documented disapproval.
However, the romance rejection comes on the heels of Larsa admitting she’d be open to having another child. If the couple follows through, their child would be her fifth and Marcus’s first.
The subject came up about 13 minutes into episode two of their recently launched podcast, Separation Anxiety with Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan. The couple collectively admitted that people, including friends, ask them about having kids but that they’ve never privately, seriously discussed it.
Marcus claimed that his store, Trophy Room, has kept his mind off having kids. And though Larsa claims to be “really fulfilled” with her tribe of four, she mentioned she’d be “open to having one more child.”
Speculations about their dating started last September when they were spotted on a group outing. Larsa quickly denied the rumors. Soon after, Marcus and Larsa appeared cozy at a concert and baseball game. Finally, in January, they confirmed their relationship with a steamy public kiss.
