The Real Housewives of Miami alum, 46, made headlines earlier this month after photographs of her and the basketball player, 24, from late November surfaced online. The photos showed Pippen out in Miami, holding hands with the athlete, whose wife, Montana Yao, reportedly filed for divorce after seeing the pics.

“The last thing Larsa needs is attention,” the insider tells Us, noting that the former reality TV star has been spending time in Florida with her inner circle. “She has been in Miami hanging out with her best friends Michelle Pooch and Loren Ridinger.”

The source noted that Larsa’s relationship with her son, whom she shares with estranged husband Scottie Pippen, is good.

“Scotty Jr. is focusing on basketball and talks to his mother and father daily,” the insider explains.

Larsa, who also shares sons Preston, 18, and Justin, 15, and daughter Sophia, 12, with the former Chicago Bulls player, 55, has shared cryptic messages amid the controversy with Beasley.

“Don’t judge me until you know me,” she posted on her Instagram Stories on Friday, December 4.

Two days later, Larsa shared a prayer for people “dealing with heartache” and was slammed for her message. “I am thinking of Malik Beasley’s wife and son,” one follower wrote on her post. Another added: “She praying for her victims.”

Larsa filed for divorce from Scottie in 2018 after initially filing two years prior. The pair were married for more than 20 years before calling it quits.

“Wow… I don’t even know this man,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories at the time. “This is wild y’all I’m just seeing it for the first time just like y’all.”

The estranged couple share 20-month-old son Makai.
