She told TMZ, “It is with deep sadness that Scottie and I announce that we are legally separating. We have both tried very hard for a long time to make our marriage work and have ultimately come to the conclusion that it is best that we live separate lives.”

Scottie originally filed for divorce from Larsa in October 2016. Shortly after the announcement, Larsa placed two 911 calls in which she claimed that Scottie had verbally abused her, although no arrests were made.

A rep told TMZ at the time, “After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage. Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect.”

Months after this disagreement, Scottie and Larsa were seen together at The Nice Guy in Los Angeles with Kourtney Kardashian and LL Cool K. In November 2017, the couple officially called off their divorce.
