Another celebrity couple bites the dust.
Former NBA star Scottie Pippen filed for divorce from his wife of 19 years, Larsa Pippen, earlier this week in Florida, reports TMZ.
“After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage,” a rep for the former “The Real Housewives of Miami” star told TMZ. “Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”
The couple married in 1997 and have four children together. The split comes as somewhat of a surprise, as Larsa, 42, and Scottie, 51, were spotted together at a New York Fashion Week event last month, where their daughter Sophie modeled in a children’s fashion show.
The former basketball player was previously married to Karen McCollum, with whom he has son, as well as two other children from past relationships.
