Larsa Pippen has reportedly split from Marcus Jordan.

Scottie Pippen's ex-wife, 49, struck up a romance with 33-year-old Marcus - son of her ex-husband's former Chicago Bulls teammate Michael Jordan - last year and the relationship was said to be serious as Marcus gifted her a promise ring but it's now been reported that the pair have parted ways due to "tension" between them.

A source told New York Post column PageSix: "They’re not together ... [They] are taking space from each other [due to the] tension."

The report comes after Larsa wiped all pictures of Marcus from her social media accounts and it suggests the "tension" between them stemmed from issues with Marcus' basketball legend father Michael after he publicly denounced the relationship.

When asked if he approved of his son's romance, Michael told TMZ: "No".

Larsa later revealed she felt "embarrassed" and "traumatised" by the remark but they reportedly cleared the air with the sports legend.

However, PageSix reports the issues never really went away. The source added: "Marcus said Michael was joking when he said he didn’t approve, but it really mortified Larsa.

"The history between Michael and Scottie made things complicated, even if Larsa and Marcus did their best to make it a non-issue ... There is a baseline loyalty for each of them that made the relationship difficult to navigate."

In an episode of Larsa's 'Separation Anxiety' podcast, she opened up about the drama with Michael saying: "I do understand that it's not awkward for us to be together because it's us, but it probably is awkward for my ex and your dad because they have their own relationship or whatever it was.

"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."
