Following the posts, fans quickly responded by sending love to Pippen. “You look very nice in this picture, standing on your yacht,” one user commented.
“You are so hot that this fan is speechless,” another said. Furthermore, many of her followers wanted to know where she got the bikini in the photo.

Larsa Pippen prayed for Lebanon after the 2020 Beirut explosion
On August 4, 2020, a massive explosion in the Port of Beirut shattered Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, killing 218 people, injuring 7,000 people, and uprooting 300,000 people.
Hearing the devastating news, Pippen posted a photo of the explosion on her Instagram account with the caption, “I’m praying for Lebanon. My mom is from Beirut this just breaks my heart. My family is so devastated.”
Following the post, one user wrote, “My dad is from Beruit too, he’s passed now, but I never knew you were Lebanese!”
Another person said, “Us Lebanese are strong and resilient. We will rebuild and make it new. The people have and will continue to rise up against the govt and will be given the boot. Enshallah this happens soon.”
As hinted by the earlier comment, many people were unaware that Pippen was Arabic, and they felt bad seeing their motherland suffer. Fortunately, it does not appear that the explosion has personally impacted Pippen’s family.
However, because the television personality’s mother is from Lebanon, she has a special connection to the place, and seeing the explosion broke her heart.
