After 17 seasons in the National Basketball Association that thrilled fans in New Jersey and millions of others across the country, Scottie Pippen walked away with six NBA championships as a superstar player and teammate of all-time great Michael Jordan. Throughout his career, Pippen often made headlines due to issues with women in his personal life. He divorced his first wife and is the father of several children from various romantic relationships. Now, after more than 20 years of marriage with his second wife, the two are entangled in a complex divorce case.
Four of Pippen’s seven children are from his second marriage. In his second divorce, he and his ex reportedly agreed to share legal and physical custody. There appears to be a discrepancy between what Pippen reported as a date of separation, however, and the date his estranged wife, Larsa, told the court. It is an issue that may significantly affect the outcome of property division proceedings.
The Pippens did not sign a prenuptial agreement before they married. At this time, Pippen’s net worth is estimated to be worth approximately $50 million. Both spouses have stated that, while they still have financial issues to settle in their divorce, they are determined to achieve an amicable agreement for the sake of their children.
Not every New Jersey couple who files for divorce will face complex issues like those in Pippen’s case. However, even a minor conflict can delay proceedings and impede the ability to achieve a fair and agreeable settlement. To avoid such problems, it is best to rely on an experienced family law attorney for support.
