Who Is Taylor Pippen Dating? Her Wedding Plans
As far as the media is informed, Taylor is not dating anyone and doesn’t have wedding plans at present. She has a decent presence in social media handles but none of her posts in her socials gives a clue about her current love life.
It’s not that Pippen has never appeared with a male figure on her social media handles, she has. But she never addressed anyone as her beau besides once to a Canadian musician Drake. On October 15, 2013, sharing a picture of Drake on her Facebook, she captioned, “boyfriend“, which shows that Taylor had a huge crush on Drake while growing up.
Scottie Pippen’s Daughter, Taylor Pippen Was Born Twins
Taylor was born twins to her father Scottie and her mother Sonya Roby on July 20, 1994, in Mundelein, Illinois. Her twin sister was Tyler Pippen who died nine days after her birth in hospital.
Taylor had an unstable and not-so-joyous childhood, unlike a typical child born in the US. Since her birth, she was abandoned by her dad Scottie as he refused to acknowledge Taylor as his biological child. So, she was single-handedly raised by her mom in her hometown.
Taylor’s Height And Education
Taylor stands at a height of 5 feet and 11 inches, which is quite tall for a female in the US. We can say it is all attributed to her dad Scottie’s tall genetics.
As for education, she went to Carmel Catholic High School. Later, Pippen attended Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, where she majored in accounting and minor in marketing.
Taylor Pippen Was Abandoned By Her Dad
After her birth, Scottie didn’t accept Taylor as his biological child. Subsequently, her mom Sonya and Pippen’s girlfriend dragged the issue to court when Taylor was 10 months old. After the paternity test was done, it was proved that Taylor was Scottie’s daughter.
The Hall of Famer was then asked to pay the full birth cost as well as a monthly payment for Taylor’s future. Though he willingly or unwillingly paid whatever he was asked to, he never accepted her with an open heart.
As a result, Pippen grew up in a lack of her patriarch’s love and affection. Back in 2016, in an interview with the Spanish news outlet El Mundo, she said,
“He never wanted to meet me. He decided that it [would be] like that and I prefer not to think about the matter too much,”
She further added,
“I was born and raised near Chicago, you can imagine how many questions I have been asked about my father. I know how much my last name weighs, I know that people expect a lot from me, but, after all these years, I have learned that Pippen is just that, a last name.”
From this, it is quite clear that entire her life she was abandoned by her famous father.
How Is Father-Daughter’s Relationship Now?
In recent years, it seems like a dad-daughter duo, Scottie and Taylor has worked on their relationship. Back on November 28, 2022, she shared her picture together with her father on her Instagram with a caption,
This month was spent visiting those that left me in Chicago I love y’all.
