One of the greatest basketball players, who was able to hold onto the title of six NBA championship and Olympics, Scottie Pippen has a very rocky past relationship. He was married to Karen McCallum in 1988 with whom he had his first child, a son named Antron Pippen. After their divorce, he dated, got engaged, and married another woman as well. Altogether, Scottie became the father of eight children.
However, let’s know more about Scottie Pippen’s Daughter Sierra Pippen, who was born to his ex-fiancee Yvette DeLeone on February 17, 1995.
Had Been Arrested
Sierra Pippen was arrested for public intoxication and urinating on the hotel Lowa’s lobby in April 2015. Sierra was found outside the hotel, which is near the University of Lowa, where she was an undergraduate student. At the time of arrest warrant, she was smelling of booze, showing signs of intoxication, impaired speech, and loss of balance according to Daily Mail.
Earlier on April 10, 2015, Sierra was arrested on the same hotel for public intoxication after getting in the fight with the hotel staff. Even after being underage, Sierra was wearing two bar wristbands according to criminal reports.
Sierra was released on a $500 bond from police custody. As Sierra is the daughter of the famous player, Scottie Pippen, the case of Sierra was more circulated and addressed by many people.
Sierra Pippen is one of the eight children her father, Scottie Pippen. The first child of Scottie Pippen, Antron Pippen, was born to his first ex-wife Karen McCallum. Later, he dated Sonya Roby with whom he had twin daughters, Taylor Pippen and Tyler Roby Pippen (died nine months after being born). And Sierra Pippen was born to his ex-fiancee Yvette DeLeone. In 1997, Scottie married Larsa Younan with whom he has four other children, sons Scotty Pippen Jr., Preston Pippen, and Justin Pippen, and a daughter named Sophia Pippen. And apart from Sierra, most of her half-siblings are a sportsperson, mostly engaged in basketball.

Since Sierra tends to stay away from the media, one can only imagine that she shares a loving bond with her father and half-siblings. However, we can presume that she is close to her mother, Yvette DeLeone, and has a lovely time with her.
Lives A Low-Profile Life
Scottie Pippen is always surrounded by paparazzi and always updates about the happenings of his life himself as well. However, Sierra Pippen, the daughter of a celebrity, ought to live her life in no spotlight. Maybe as Sierra has a troubled past, she maintains a very low-key presence as she even has her Instagram set on private and has not updated on Twitter as of now.
We hope Sierra is living a comfortable life and is close to her mother and other family members as well.
Although Sierra is maintaining a confidential life, she must be very saddened by the news of her half-brother, Antron Pippen’s death. Her father, Scottie, announced the news via his social media handle without disclosing the reason behind his oldest child’s untimely death.
The entire Pippen family must be heartbroken by the news but let’s hope they find strength in memories. We share our deepest-deepest condolences to the bereaved family via this article.
