Marcus Jordan Now Wants His Dad (You Know, MJ) To Be His Best Man When He Marries Larsa Pippen

Alright, I want to make sure I'm not just a hater. This whole thing is definitely weird right? I mean poor Scottie Pippen, the hits just don't stop coming. Are these two crazy kids in love? Who's to say. I'll give them this, I would have thought this whole relationship would have fizzled out by now once they stopped getting all that press. It made waves last year when they were rumored to be together and then again earlier this summer when they announced they were getting married, but I figured once that died down everyone went back to living their normal life.

Nope. As you can see, Marcus Jordan and his lovely fiance are still going on TV/podcasts to throw gasoline all over this fire. I can't help but watch that video and get the sense that these two are just looking for any and every way they can twist the knife. I get that because he was his Dad's best man he wants it to be the other way around for his wedding, but come on man. Read the goddamn room. The way Marcus Jordan was smiling through the whole thing also felt weird. Oh, you don't say, the wedding is going to be on TV? What a surprise! 

As a reminder, it sure didn't seem like MJ was all too thrilled with his son's choice of a partner after he finally broke his silence

and hey, at least he was willing to stick up for Pippen in some fashion. Something tells me he's not going to be all that excited to handle all the best man responsibilities and also write a best man speech for this relationship. I can't even imagine what that would even say. I know MJ and Pippen don't exactly have the best history, but at some point, someone has to draw the line somewhere and I feel like MJ being the best man for his son as he marries the ex of Scottie Pippen is probably overdoing it. Just ask your best friend or brother or something. At the same time, these two clearly know what comes by putting out an idea like this. It means more press, more appearances, the whole thing just feels kind of gross. 

They say the heart wants what the heart wants and maybe that's true here. Personally, I think there's some sort of humiliation kink at play, but maybe these two are actual soulmates. I'm sure crazier love connections have happened even if I can't think of them off the top of my head right now, so I wish these two nothing but the best. And if MJ does accept and he does the speech at their private wedding, I'm going to need someone in the crowd to leak that shit immediately.

And now, as a thank you for clicking on this blog, we'll let Larsa take us out
