FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – As if things couldn’t get any stranger in Florida, former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen amended his lawsuit against comedian and actress Lindsay Glazer earlier this month to include her 5-year-old daughter.
The updated lawsuit now also seeks damages for alleged misuse of crayons and markers at his residence, which Glazer and her family leased after her home was damaged during Hurricane Irma.
The original civil lawsuit was filed in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court in Broward County, Florida, on behalf of Scottie Pippen, and alleges Glazer and her family caused over $100,000 in damage to the former NBA champion’s Ft. Lauderdale mansion during her time as a tenant.
Initially, the lawsuit inaccurately claimed Glazer was a member of the Glazer family that owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Manchester United Football Club and is worth approximately $4.5 billion. However, the lawsuit, which Pippen thought was against a member of that extremely wealthy Glazer family, appears to have backfired.
As a result of the publicity of his case, the Sun Sentinel reported in December that the Broward County Property Appraiser also caught wind of the situation and went after Pippen for misclassifying his residence to receive a tax break by using Florida’s homestead exemption. The problem for Pippen is that using the homestead exemption requires the residence to be maintained as the property owner’s primary residence. Because of the misclassified homestead filing, Pippen had to pay approximately $13,190 more in taxes for 2018 and will have higher tax bills in the future, the Sentinel reported.
“Quite frankly, I’m surprised they ever thought he lived anywhere primarily besides Michael Jordan’s shadow,” quipped Glazer. “All jokes aside, who would have ever thought that Dennis Rodman would be strengthening relations with North Korea, and Scottie ‘no tippin’ Pippen would be the crazy one suing little girls?”
One of the crimes alleged in the suit was the suspected theft of Pippen’s Cuisinart cutlery. As a result of the loss of Pippen’s beloved Cuisinart knives, which Glazer claims she is not responsible for, Glazer launched a GoFundMe campaign to replace the missing knives.
“With all of the publicity this ridiculous case was getting, we thought it would be good to use it as an opportunity to raise funds for the Fisher House Foundation, which assists military and veteran’s families,” Glazer said. “Apparently the Broward County Property Appraiser also thought it was a great opportunity to raise funds, too.”
Additional allegations in the complaint include, neglecting the care of the home and allowing animals to urinate throughout the home.
“We have no idea where the urine in Scottie’s home came from, perhaps it was his daughter, who has a history of urinating in places where she shouldn’t,” Glazer said.
Furthermore, per the lease agreement, Pippen was supposed to have a housekeeper come by one to two times a week. Glazer claims the housekeeper rarely came to the residence, and when she did, she never cleaned.
“I suppose that’s what happens when your nickname is No Tippin Pippen,” Glazer said.
Glazer maintains her and her family’s innocence against these frivolous claims and insists she will prevail in court.
