Larsa Pippen is part of the Kardashian inner circle and often referred to by Kim as her BFF. She is the ex-wife of basketball legend Scottie Pippen and mother to four children.

According to Kardashian’s blog, she frequently calls Larsa Pippen for parenting advice. Pippen became well known for her role in The Real Housewives of Miami and now runs an online lifestyle magazine, Life With Larsa.

Kardashian and Pippen became friends sometime around 2012. They have been inseparable ever since, often vacationing together and frequently wearing matching outfits. Squad photos on social media often include Pippen glamming it up by Kardashian’s side. Pippen has even had plastic surgery and now looks eerily similar to Kardashian.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship timeline

Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired a tenth anniversary special in 2017. Ryan Seacrest talked with Kardashian about meeting West for the first time. She recalled being introduced to him in 2002 when he was recording a song with her friend, Brandy.

She told Seacrest: “I vividly remember hanging out with him… He was asking his friends: ‘Who is this Kim Kardajan?’ He didn’t even know what my name was.”

In 2008, the couple worked together on a pilot for a raunchy Star Wars-themed show entitled “Alligator Boots.” Kardashian claimed on her website that this is where the two really connected for the first time.

The couple remained friends and dating rumors started to emerge in early 2012. In April of that year, West released his song “Cold” with lyrics that referred to Kardashian. Eight months after the song was released, West referred to Kardashian on stage at a concert as his “baby mama.”

In June of 2013, they became parents to their first child, North. They married in 2014 and have since had three more children. Now, five years later, despite some ups and downs, the couple seems to be going strong.

They renewed their vows in October of 2019, and in a recent interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1, West referred to their relationship as a “successful celebrity marriage.”

Pippen recently told US Weekly that the secret to Kim and Kanye’s successful relationship is that “they’re the same person.” She claims their relationship is so strong because they are the perfect match. Kardashian once told Glamour magazine that she could pinpoint the exact moment when she knew West was “The One.” She recalled staying at Kanye’s house for the first night, and the heat was blasting, and he was wearing socks. She said she had met her soulmate, stating, “I sleep with the heat on… 80 degrees and socks and a robe, every single night.” Thermostat settings aside, it seems the power couple has a lot more in common than wearing socks to bed.

Is Larsa Pippen off base with her “couple goals”?

Pippen referred to the relationship between Kim and Kanye as “couple goals.” But, it appears she may be off base with her observation.

According to a recent exclusive interview with In Touch Weekly, a source revealed that the famous “Jesus is King” rapper is “100 percent more controlling now.” The source claimed that he is trying to keep Kim from doing anything that “he feels isn’t godly.”

On a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the dynamic duo got into a heated debate about Kardashian’s wardrobe choice for the Met Gala. West thought Kardashian’s outfit was too sexy, and Kardashian wasn’t interested in his last-minute opinions.

Kardashian stated: “Just because you are on a journey, and you’re on your transformation, doesn’t mean that I am in the same spot with you.” Seems like the two may not be the same person after all.
