'RHOM' Star Larsa Pippen Claims Ex-Husband Scottie Pippen 'Punishes' Her When He 'Doesn't Get His Way'
The Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen opened up about her volatile relationship with ex-husband Scottie Pippen, claiming her divorce has left her "traumatized."
Larsa broke down to costar Alexia Echevarria on Thursday's episode, telling her she's been "trying to force" the retired NBA player to sell his Miami home. However, her plan backfired when her ex demanded she allow their daughter, Sophia, to live with him in Los Angeles.
"I was traumatized," Larsa told Echevarria. "If he doesn’t get his way, he punishes me. He’s like The Punisher."
Later, in a confessional interview, she said Scottie "is used to controlling the narrative" in their relationship.
"This is like his last piece of control that he’s got over me and the kids," she explained. "He’s only punishing me because I’m making him sell the house."

The television personality said now that they are officially divorced, the professional athlete is "pushing all the buttons to let me know that he’s still in charge and because I’m doing whatever makes me happy."
"So dating someone younger makes me happy? I’m doing it!" she continued. "Which leads me to believe that it’s a jealousy problem. That jealousy is the underlying issue."
The high profile couple — who share children Scotty Jr., 21, Preston, 20, Justin, 17, and Sophia, 14 — tied the knot in 1997 and originally filed for divorce in 2016. Although they gave their relationship another shot in 2017, Larsa re-filed in 2018 and their divorce was finalized in December of last year.
Alexia also shared her thoughts on the precarious relationship in her own confessional, admitting she thinks Larsa needs to "cut that umbilical cord."
"She’s just too close to Scottie, and the truth is no man that she ever dates is going to be okay with that," she told the cameras. "And I don’t even think that’s good for Larsa."
