Scotty Maurice Pippen Sr., better known as Scottie Pippen is a former professional basketball player. Over the years, the ex-small forward for the Chicago Bulls made the news headlines several times, including winning championships and his bizarre and eccentric relationships.
Nicknamed as the right-hand man of Michael Jordan, Pippen had Michael beat when it came to winning the hearts of several women. Over the years, he has had a vast dating history with two marriages, an ex-fiancée, and more. Scottie is also a father to eight children with four different women.
Since Pippen’s relationship with his ex-wife, Larsa Pippen was the longest he was committed to someone, we will focus primarily on all the events and facts of their marriage. Before that, let’s dive a bit deeper into all of the insights available on the former athlete’s romantic adventures.
List Of Scottie Pippen’s Romantic Partners
Pippen has been married and divorced twice, has an ex-fiancée, and had two other girlfriends to be exact.
After joining the Chicago Bulls, Scottie moved to the city in 1997 and met Chevette valentine. Valentine made sure to attend almost all of Scottie’s away games and, in the process, spent a lot of money on traveling and hotel costs.
However, things came to a standstill when Scottie confessed to having a child with a woman named Karen McCollum whom he had married in the early part of 1988.
After his divorce, Scottie went on dating Chevette up until 1993.
Surprisingly, after all these years, Chevette sued the veteran NBA star for 9,999 dollars in 2019 for not getting reimbursed as promised by Scottie.
The former athlete’s first wife was Karen McCollum whom he had tied knots with after their son, Antron Pippen was born in 1997. Very little is known about Karen, but it is confirmed that by profession, she is a musician.
Their marriage was short-lived and they separated two years later in 1990 but remained on amicable terms.
Sadly, earlier this year Scottie and Karen’s son, Antron passed away due to reasons not made public.

The year Chevette and the former NBA star went their separate ways, Scottie was already expecting twins with model and his ex-girlfriend, Sonya Roby. She soon gave birth to twins Taylor and Tyler in the summer of 94’. Tragically, one of the twins, Tyler, passed away just nine days later.
Pippen initially denied all claims that he was the biological father which backfired after he was taken to court and DNA results proved otherwise. As a result, he had to pay 15000 US dollars to clear outstanding medical bills for the birth.
As for child support, a long court battle would ensue. Roby asked for 11500 dollars a month which Scottie claimed to be a little excessive. Finally, under the court’s order, he had to agree to get Taylor insured through the NBA.
Much about Sonya is not known, however, according to her Instagram, she is currently a Chicago based lifestyle photographer. She also goes by the name Martin now. It is speculated that she might have remarried.

Following his split with Sonya Roby, Pippen found himself in a situation quite similar to before. He was yet again expecting a baby with his love interest and fiancée Yvette Deleone. Although this time around, he proudly claimed to be the father of Sierra Pippen, born in February of 1995.
The couple’s happiness was short-lived, however. They decided to go their separate ways after a battery charge was issued against Scottie for pushing his fiancée, who later called the police on him.
The former star player was arrested and lost a court case following which he had to pay child support of five thousand dollars per month to Deleone.
Scottie’s second wife, Larsa Pippen, and he were together for a long time, 21 years to be exact, which is easily one of the longest-running relationships in the NBA. The aspiring model and Prime Pippen got married very soon after they met and went on to have four beautiful children together.
After a series of unfortunate events, the two got divorced in 2018.
