“… I kinda felt like it went everywhere and I was kind of embarrassed," the reality star admitted, explaining that she felt uneasy about the situation because she believed the public thought she was lying when she previously said both their families were on board with their relationship.

“It literally went everywhere,” Larsa — who went Instagram Official with the famous offspring in January — pointed out. “I think people started to think that online they were saying that I was lying — that I lied and said that our parents are fine because I was doing interviews and saying both of our families are fine."

She continued: “When I would say that, I felt like I didn’t embellish that… and I would say both of our parents want us to be happy… I do understand that it’s not awkward for us to be together because it’s us."

Larsa acknowledged, "it probably is awkward for my ex [Scottie Pippen] and your dad because they have their own relationship or whatever it was." However, "I wasn’t a part of that, you weren’t a part of that."

"So I feel like for them it probably is weird, it probably is weird for your dad. I can’t be mad. I understand… Oh my god, I was traumatized. I was like what are we going to do, people think I lied," the mother-of-three rambled on.

The Real Housewives of Miami star declared their families were "happy" for them during her February appearance on The Tamron Hall Show.
