Marcus Jordan Wants Michael Jordan As His Best Man When Marrying Larsa Pippen
Marcus Jordan is hoping to continue his family tradition by having his father Michael Jordan serve as best man when he marries Larsa Pippen.
Marcus Jordan hopes to continue the family tradition by having his father, Michael Jordan, serve as best man when he marries Larsa Pippen.
The NBA legend has publicly expressed his disapproval of his 32-year-old son dating the 49-year-old ex-wife of his former teammate turned nemesis Scottie Pippen. When asked if he supported their romance, Jordan replied, “No.”
But that didn’t stop Marcus from taking things further with Larsa and embarking on a high-profile public relationship despite their nearly 20-year age gap. The couple is sharing their love life on the new season of The Real Housewives of Miami and appeared on Pablo Torre Finds Out, where they teased the possibility of getting married.
When the time comes for them to tie the knot, Marcus expects his dad to serve as best man, as he did for his older brother, Jeffrey.
“I was the best man at his wedding and the best man at my brother’s wedding, and so obviously, we’ll keep that tradition going is my thoughts on it,” Marcus said.
When asked if the wedding would be televised, Marcus didn’t shut down the possibility.
“Now that I’ve been on The Housewives of Miami, all the producers are inquiring around when’s the wedding, are we going to film it on TV, so that’s another thing that we’re playing along with is whether or not we’ll air it.”
While Larsa appears comfortable with the limelight and sharing her private life on reality TV, Marcus comes from a more private family who likely wouldn’t be comfortable attending a televised wedding.
“We’re very private people, the Jordans, and so if it was up to me, I think we would do multiple weddings, one private for our family and friends and then maybe there’s one that’s a little more public but I guess time will tell,” Marcus said.
Larsa and Marcus first sparked dating rumors one year after she finalized her divorce from Scottie Pippen. In early 2023 the couple made things Instagram official.
After Michael Jordan publicly shaded their relationship, Marcus seemed to defend his dad on his and Larsa’s Separation Anxiety podcast, chalking it up to the six-time NBA champion being intoxicated. Marcus even said he thought his dad’s response was funny. Larsa, however, was “traumatized” by the response.
“You thought it was funny,” she told Marcus. “I didn’t think it was funny. There is nothing funny about it.… I kinda felt like it went everywhere, and I was kind of embarrassed.”
