Pippen was born on September 25, 1965, in Hamburg, Arkansas, the youngest of 12 children, born to Ethel and Preston Pippen (June 9, 1920 – May 10, 1990). Pippen’s mother was 6 ft (180 cm) tall and his father was 6 ft 1 in (185 cm) and all of their children were tall, with Scottie being the tallest. His parents could not afford to send their other children to college. His father worked in a paper mill until a stroke, that paralyzed his right side, prevented him from walking and affected his speech.
Pippen attended Hamburg High School. Playing point guard, he led his team to the state playoffs and earned all-conference honors as a senior. He was not offered any college scholarships. Pippen began his college playing career at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway after being discovered by the school’s head basketball coach, Don Dyer, as a walk-on. He did not receive much media coverage as a college basketball player because Central Arkansas played in the NAIA, not the more prestigious NCAA. Pippen stood only 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) tall when he graduated from high school, but while at Central Arkansas experienced a growth spurt and grew to 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m). As a senior, his per game averages of 23.6 points, 10 rebounds, 4.3 assists and near 60 percent field goal shooting earned him Consensus NAIA All-American honors in 1987 and made him a dominant player in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference, drawing the attention of NBA scouts.
Although his given name is spelled Scotty on his birth certificate, Pippen usually goes by Scottie. He stated that people usually shorten the name to Scott if it ends in y.
Pippen has been married twice: to Karen McCollum (married 1988; divorced 1990) with whom he has a son, Antron Pippen (born 1987), and to Larsa Younan (married 1997; divorced 2018), with whom he has four children: Scotty Jr. (born 2000), Preston (born 2002), Justin (born 2005), and Sophia Pippen (born 2008). Larsa starred in the TV show The Real Housewives of Miami, and is of Assyrian heritage. Scotty Jr. is a freshman on the basketball team at Southeastern Conference (SEC) Vanderbilt University. Sophia appeared on the first season of Dancing with the Stars: Juniors. Pippen also has a daughter, Sierra Pippen (born 1995), with his former fiancée Yvette De Leon and a daughter, Taylor Pippen (born 1994), with former girlfriend and model Sonya Roby. Taylor’s twin sister Tyler died nine days after birth. Taylor played volleyball at Southern Illinois University. Taylor is an accountant in Chicago.
Pippen developed a reputation for being a poor tipper, earning him the nickname “No Tippin Pippen.” Shortly after retiring, Pippen learned that a financial adviser, whom Pippen claimed had been recommended by his team, was under investigation for bank fraud. Pippen had invested over $20 million through the adviser, Robert Lunn. In March 2016, Lunn was sentenced to three years in prison on multiple fraud counts, including forging Pippen’s signature on a $1.4 million loan that Lunn used to pay off personal debts.
On July 11, 2013, Camran Shafighi filed a $4 million lawsuit against Pippen in Los Angeles Superior Court over an incident that occurred on June 23, 2013, at the Malibu restaurant Nobu. Shafighi said that he was physically attacked by Pippen after taking pictures of Pippen inside and outside the restaurant. Shafighi was then taken to a hospital. On August 27, 2013, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office announced that charges would not be filed against Pippen.
Pippen’s nephew, Kavion Pippen, plays basketball for the Austin Spurs.
