Larsa Pippen is showing Instagram you can wear a bikini to a barbecue. The 46-year-old reality star and ex to NBA icon Scottie Pippen mega raked in the engagement with her Wednesday update, posting in a Pretty Little Thing bikini forming part of her new six-figure deal with the affordable clothing brand.
Larsa, who has gained 100,000 followers since being unfollowed by the Kardashians last month, also shouted out her soon-to-launch jewelry brand. It anyone knows how to mix business with pleasure, it’s this former “Real Housewives of Miami” star. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes amid major headlines Larsa made for having her famous Kardashian friends unfollow her after 43-year-old rapper Kanye West tweeted out her name with a suspect think-face emoji. Larsa, swiftly unfollowed by the Kardashians, then found herself fueling major affair rumors with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. More on that below.
Today’s snap, meanwhile, kept it sexy and fun. Larsa was flaunting her bombshell curves in a tiny bandeau bikini while posing against a wall. She accessorized her swimwear with Tom Ford shades, plus jewelry from her August-launching Larsa Marie line.
Larsa then took to her caption, writing: “How do u show up to a bbq? Swimsuit @prettylittlething.”
The comments section, which can very much go either way for Larsa, seemed right on-board today. “Hot mom check,” one fan wrote, with the fire emoji getting a little out of control as fans threw the Larsa Pippen Fitness founder the thumbs-up.
A few eyebrows were, however, raised – “I feel bad for your sons,” one fan wrote. Together with 2018-divorced ex Scottie, Larsa is a mom to kids Preston, Justin, Sophia, and Scotty Jr.
Larsa fronted media outlets at the end of July after “Ye” rapper Kanye’s tweet seemingly spurred the mass unfollowing, with Larsa herself unfollowing 39-year-old queen bee Kim Kardashian. There’s reportedly no beef, with the former BFFs said to have grown apart “naturally,” but there was fuel in the fire as model Jordyn Woods got involved.
Jordyn waded into the storm by liking the following tweet.
“Okay so the only thing I peeped from that man’s rant is that LARSA PIPPIN [sic] SLEPT WITH TRISTAN but didn’t get dragged like Jordyn did because HE kissed HER.”
Larsa didn’t use a #ad in her post. The disclaimer doesn’t appear necessary when the promotional agenda is clear. Pay on Instagram directly correlates with following – Larsa’s 2 million followers put her in a healthy earnings position. Experts at Vox have offered potential earnings estimates.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!
