Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan sparked rumors of a breakup on social media over the weekend. And now, the split is being confirmed by multiple media outlets.

According to a new report, an insider has suggested it was “tension” caused by family drama that led them to reportedly call it quits.

After the Real Housewives of Miami star, 49, and Marcus, 33, who she began dating in September 2022, unfollowed one another on Instagram and scrubbed their accounts of photos of each other, a source signaled to Marcus’ dad Michael Jordan‘s public disapproval of the romance and feud with Larsa’s ex, Scottie Pippen, 58.

“They’re not together,” a source told Page Six on February 12. They “are taking space from each other” due to the “tension” in their relationship, which Michael, 60, “publicly [denounced].”

“Marcus said Michael was joking when he said he didn’t approve, but it really mortified Larsa,” the source explained. “[And] the history between Michael and Scottie made things complicated, even if Larsa and Marcus did their best to make it a non-issue.”

“Family comes before everything” for Larsa and Marcus, the insider added. “At the end of the day, Michael is Marcus’ dad and Scottie is the father of Larsa’s children.”

As RHOM fans may know, Larsa and Scottie share four children, including Scottie Jr., 23, Preston, 22, Justin, 19, and Sophia, 16, and while they haven’t always been on the best of terms, they do their best to remain respectful of one another.

“There is a baseline loyalty for each of them that made the relationship difficult to navigate,” the insider shared.

As for Larsa’s castmates, they are said to be “surprised” by the split.

“No one saw this coming,” a second source said of the breakup. “It really seems like a sudden decision. There was no hint that there was trouble in paradise.”

“The ladies have a lot of questions,” the insider continued. A production insider added, “They seemed so in love. If they got back together, it wouldn’t surprise anyone.”

In addition to sharing an Instagram Story post that asked, “Should your friends unfollow your ex,” Larsa shared a cryptic message about choosing men.

“The man you choose to be your partner affects everything in your life. Your mental health, your peace of mind, your love inside you, your happiness, how you get through tragedies, your successes, how your children will be raised and much more. Choose wisely,” the quote stated.

Meanwhile, on Marcus’ page, in addition to sharing a selfie with dad Michael, he posted a Drake song, “First Person Shooter,” which spoke of being ready to date other women.

Although Larsa and Marcus have yet to officially speak of their reported split, a source confirmed the news to PEOPLE on Monday.

The Real Housewives of Miami season six airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
