Larsa Pippen has been ‘cut off’ by estranged husband Scottie and has been forced to ask best friend Kourtney Kardashian for financial support, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

The Real Housewives of Miami star, 42, is now hoping a judge will hand some of the estimated $120 million fortune to her when the couple appear in court for the first time in Fort Lauderdale, Florida today. Sources close to the reality star say the former Chicago Bulls player, 51, has seized control of the family accounts and is denying her access to cash. The insider said: ‘She’s been going back and forth between LA and Florida but she’s been stranded because she doesn’t have any money. ‘Kourtney Kardashian has been looking after her and making sure she’s all right, and providing for her in between. ‘There’s a lot of back and forth with regards to the money. Her plan is to get as much as she can but he’s being really tough and really cheap about it. ‘He’s fighting tooth and nail about everything with regards to the money.’

The couple, who were married for 19 years before splitting last October amid rumors Larsa had an affair with Atlanta rapper Future, are also set for a showdown over their prenuptial agreement. Court records obtained by DailyMail.com show the document was signed on July 17 1997 – three days before their wedding in Chicago, Illinois. Scottie is now demanding it be enforced, as well as asking for shared custody of the couple’s four children and a ‘greater share’ of the couple’s marital assets.
