“I like to mind my business, but it just looks really bad." — Shaquille O’Neal is not a fan of Larsa Pippen’s relationship with Michael Jordan’s son Marcus

Safe to say that Shaq isn't in on a Pippen-Jordan tandem in 2022.

Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan surprised the world after they were spotted going out together last September. The alleged (at that time) couple has been linked to each other since then, even if Scottie Pippen's ex-wife has gone on the record in October to say that they're just friends.

But not many believe Pippen's words because just recently, the pair was seen on an intimate beach date in South Beach, Florida. The word on the streets is that the couple made their romance official in November.

Shaquille O'Neal has something to say

Pippen and Jordan (we're talking about Larsa and Marcus here) caught many off guard with their relationship in the first place because the public was shocked to find out that Scottie's ex-wife and Michael Jordan's son are actually dating. It also seemed unexpected at first because the age gap between the couple is 17 years — which may not be too wild compared to other celebrity relationships, but it's still so bizarre to think about how it had to be Scottie's ex-wife and Michael's son. Who knew a Jordan and Pippen would link up in the year 2022?

That's why Shaquille O'Neal is just as surprised as the public is. In his recent podcast episode entitled "The Big Podcast with Shaq," O'Neal admitted that he prefers minding his own business but couldn't let this one pass and made his feelings known about the couple's relatively new relationship.

"It just looks bad because it just looks bad. I like to mind my business, but it just looks really bad," O'Neal said. "Mike to his son, no. Larsa to Scottie, yes. It wasn't a friendly one. I know exactly what Scottie said," O'Neal added.

Does it really look as bad as Shaq suggests?

According to O'Neal, the relationship looks bad from Larsa Pippen's standpoint, who is 48 years of age and was married to Scottie for 24 years. They first decided to file for divorce in 2016 but worked through it and reconciled for 5 more years. The Pippens share 4 children, but that wasn't enough for them to have a stable relationship. Last May, Larsa revealed that she was traumatized by Scottie during their time together.

"I was traumatized. If he doesn't get his way, he punishes me," Larsa said. "He's like The Punisher."

The five-time NBA champion has yet to reveal his thoughts about his ex-wife and her relationship with his former teammate's son. One could only wonder what Scottie is thinking about his ex-wife's new relationships and whereabouts at this point, but it's probably similar to what Shaq feels, which is that it looks really bad.
