On Nov. 16 she posted a message on her Instagram Stories feed asking fans to “pray” for the matriarch. “My mom also has it and has been trying to cope,” she told HollywoodLife in an exclusive statement.
But, as of Nov. 17, her mom’s condition seemed to have improved. “Her mother is doing better today. She doesn’t have a fever anymore, which is a great sign for her.” Larsa’s assistant told us.
However, sadly, Larsa continues to suffer from COVID-19 symptoms herself. Despite telling us that she hoped to be free of the virus “in a couple of days,” her assistant revealed that, as of Nov. 17, her headaches and chills persist. “She just took another test, however the [doctor] feels like it’s going to be positive still [because] she is still suffering from chills and migraines,” the assistant said.

ORIGINAL: In a since deleted Instagram Story, Larsa Pippen revealed that she contracted the novel coronavirus. The former Kardashian family insider shared a photo of herself in bed, accompanied by the caption, “I’ve been battling Covid for a week. It’s no joke I’ve never felt pain like this!” Although the Real Housewives of Miami alum, 46, deleted the November 13 story just hours later, HollywoodLife reached out to her rep, who confirmed she had tested positive. “Yes she has been battling it for a week. She’s had the worst body aches and hard time breathing. We have a doctor coming to the house caring for her,” her rep explained.
It comes just days after Larsa gave a bombshell interview to Dax Holt and Adam Glyn on their Hollywood Raw podcast, opening up about her fractured relationship with the Kardashian family. The wife of NBA star Scottie Pippen rose to fame as one of Kim Kardashian’s closest confidantes, however the whole KarJenner clan unfollowed her on IG in 2020. She blamed Kanye West for her falling out with the reality TV stars, and claimed the rapper “brainwashed” them against her.
“I just feel like Kanye was in a place where he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim,” Larsa explained, adding that the “Famous” rapper would call her at all hours of the night to “rant.” She continued, “I was his go-to person to call when he wasn’t happy with X, Y and Z. How that turned? Maybe because I blocked him on my phone because I couldn’t bear taking his calls anymore. I can’t. I’m drained.”
Although the Kardashian family are yet to respond to these claims, a source close to the famous fam told HollywoodLife that Larsa would never again be part of their inner circle. “The family is definitely disappointed and angry Larsa would share what she did in the interview, but not really surprised because they feel like Larsa is just using them to further her career at this point,” the source said in the wake of her tell-all interview.
