4:08 PM PT -- Larsa tells us, "It is with deep sadness that Scottie and I announce that we are legally separating. We have both tried very hard for a long time to make our marriage work and have ultimately come to the conclusion that it is best that we live separate lives."
She continues, "We have so many amazing memories together, remain best of friends and love each other very much. Our four children have always been our priority and for their sake we ask for as much privacy as possible for our family during this sensitive time."
2:59 PM PT -- According to the court docs, Larsa lists the date of separation as October 29. She's also asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 4 minor children.
She's also asking for spousal support. Unclear how much she's seeking but they live a very wealthy lifestyle so you know it ain't gonna be nominal.
Larsa and Scottie Pippen are getting divorced. We've learned Larsa filed legal docs Friday in L.A. County Superior Court to end their marriage.
They've had multiple issues over the years ... Scottie filed for divorce back in 2016 but they called it off last year. Just before he filed, cops came to their home twice for domestic disturbance calls, but no one was arrested. Larsa told cops Scottie scared her.
Sources connected to the couple tell us, there's no scandal this time around. The 2 have just grown apart over the last few years and decided to end their relationship. They're still committed to co-parenting their kids, but they don't want to be married anymore.
Larsa is best friends with Kim and the Kardashians and hangs out with them a lot.
When they filed in 2016, a rep for the couple told TMZ, "After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage. Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect."
The couple has 4 kids and married in 1997. The two moved from Miami to L.A. last year and now their son, Scotty Pippen Jr., has blossomed into one of the best high school basketball players around.
The move was also great for their 9-year-old daughter Sophia Pippen who got cast on "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors." She was eliminated last month but the exposure is clearly huge for her career if she wants to continue in showbiz.
