NBA icon Scottie Pippen couldn’t resist taking a swipe at Larsa Pippen’s ex-boyfriend Malik Beasley after he was sentenced to jail.
Larsa Pippen’s estranged husband, NBA legend Scottie Pippen, called her ex-boyfriend Malik Beasley a “loser” after he was sentenced to 120 days in jail in February, the Real Housewives of Miami star revealed in a recent episode, Page Six reports.
“When Malik got 90 days or something in jail (Scottie) sent it to me,” Pippen told her Real Housewives of Miami co-star Lisa Hochstein.
“He’s like, ‘Go ahead, keep talking to these losers.’”

Pippen, 47, and Beasley, 25, dated for four months last year before they split in April. In the midst of their relationship, the Minnesota Timberwolves baller pleaded guilty to one felony count of threats of violence and was sentenced to 120 days in jail. He served 78 days before being released in August.
Beasley was arrested when he pointed a gun at a family outside of his home in Minnesota in September 2020.
The point guard faced another major scandal when his relationship with Pippen became public — while he was still married to his now-estranged wife Montana Yao.
Beasley and Pippen first sparked romance rumours in November 2020 when the two were photographed holding hands in Miami. Yao, who shares two-year-old son Makai with Beasley, was said to have been “blindsided,” according to TMZ. She filed for divorce shortly after discovering the photos.
The Minnesota Timberwolves player eventually publicly apologised to Yao, one month after he and Pippen called it quits.
“I wanna say sorry for putting you in the situation you were put in the last few months … my head wasn’t where it was supposed to be … I was looking for more when it was right here that whole time … I’m telling the world and you that there’s nobody like you for me,” Beasley captioned a throwback photo of his family of three in May.
As for Pippen, she shares four children with former Chicago Bull Scottie. The two got married in 1997, and in 2018, she filed for divorce, two years after they initially called it quits.
