Yesterday, NBA legend Scottie Pippen was questioned by police in Malibu, California after getting into a physical altercation with an overzealous autograph seeker at a sushi restaurant.
So why did Pippen get into a fight with an autoseeker?
Theballerlife.com is hearing whispers that Pippen beat down autoseeker after he made off-color comments about his wife, Larsa Pippen, (photo above), who was also with him at the restaurant.
The incident shocked several of the six-time NBA champion Pippen’s friends that Gossip Extra spoke with today, mostly because Pippen is known in South Florida as a sweet, even-tempered guy.
“We hear that the man who asked him for the autograph also mouthed off about Scottie’s wife,” a Pippen confidante tells me. “She always dresses pretty provocatively, and there are times Scottie is hearing about it. I know that bugs the hell out of him.”
Here’s a quick video of Scottie and wife Larsa leaving the police station.
