11:14 AM PT — TMZ Sports is told Larsa Pippenand Marcus Jordan are, in fact, dating … and their relationship turned romantic around a month ago.
Sources say they’re really into each other … and have been spending a ton of time together in Miami.
Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan appear to have scrapped their friendship for a full-blown romance — the two were closer than ever during a day at the beach this weekend.
Scottie Pippen‘s ex-wife and Michael Jordan‘s 31-year-old son enjoyed the sun in South Beach on Sunday … with Larsa sporting a tiny, black bikini and Marcus going with a black backwards Jordan Brand hat and patterned trunks.
48-year-old Larsa has previously insisted she’s just friends with MJ … but they sure looked like a couple as he wrapped his arm around her during the beach day.
The two also got really cuddly while getting some shade under an umbrella … with witnesses saying they were making out at one point.
If they’re really just buddies, they certainly don’t mind showing affection for each other in public — as TMZ Sports previously reported, Larsa was spotted kissing MJ’s neck at Rolling Loud in NYC back in September.
The two were first spotted together in Miami earlier that month … in what appeared to be a double date at a Japanese restaurant. We were told at the time they were just friends who were hanging out with people in their same social circle … although things certainly appear to have gotten more serious since then.
Larsa was married to Scottie for 23 years … and they have four kids together.
