Imagine your dad is the world’s most successful basketball player, but you’re still struggling to pay your credit card bills. That’s the unfortunate reality for Marcus Jordan, the new boo of Real Housewives of Miami star Larsa Pippen. American Express just dragged him to court for failing to pay a six-figure credit card bill.
Watching Season 6 of RHOM, you’d never know that Marcus was going through financial issues. On the show, he and Larsa seem to be on cloud nine, but Marcus was secretly in hot water with his credit card issuer. Radar Online originally reported all of the messy details.
Marcus Jordan’s lawsuit: Marcus vs Amex
According to the outlet, Marcus stopped paying his American Express bill right around the same time he started galavanting around town with Larsa. Perhaps he was so mystified about her presence that he just forgot to pay the bill? Either way, American Express was ready to get their coins back.
American Express issued Marcus a Business Platinum card back in 2016 under his LLC. Marcus runs a business in Orlando, Florida called the Trophy Room. which is an “elevated retail boutique expression, inspired by the trophy room within the Jordan family residence.”
The card issuer said that Larsa’s man had an unpaid balance of $157,000, but he stopped paying it in 2022. AmEx ended up filing a lawsuit against Marcus in December 2022 to collect the major debt he accrued.
In the court case, Marcus agreed to pay the unpaid balance in $10,000 installments. Do you think he asked Michael Jordan for that money, or did he ask Larsa? Either way, he somehow managed to scrounge up the money each month and paid the full balance off this summer. Going from not paying your bill to suddenly dropping $10,000 a month is quite the pivot.
With the balance paid off, Amex has dismissed its case against Marcus. However, they’ll probably think twice before issuing him and his LLC another credit card.
You can catch Marcus and Larsa on Real Housewives of Miami, currently airing on Bravo, Wednesday nights at 9/8c.
