Preston Pippen is an American celebrity famous for being one of the several children of Scottie Pippen. He is the third son of the former professional basketball player, his second with his second wife, Larsa Pippen. Born on the 26th of August 2002, Preston Pippen is now an adult out to build a life for himself. However, his claim to fame remains associated with his parents, especially his father, who is regarded as one of the greatest basketball small forwards ever. His father played in the NBA for 17 seasons and won the NBA championship six times.

Preston Pippen’s parents were married for roughly five years before they had him. They exchanged wedding vows sometime in 1997 and divorced in 2021 after over two decades of marriage. Scottie Pippen first filed for divorce in 2016 but later dropped it as they resolved their differences. This only delayed the end of their marriage as Larsa Pippen filed for divorce in 2018, which was finalized in 2021. Though his parents are no longer together, Preston Pippen has maintained a good relationship with both of his parents.
