CHICAGO, May 8 (UPI) -- Matthew Pritzker, the Chicago millionaire often seen sitting next to Scottie Pippen at Bulls games, said he often gets mistaken for Mark Zuckerberg.

Pritzker, 28, one of several heirs of the Hyatt Hotel fortune who made headlines in 2001 when he and his sister, Liesel, sued family members for allegedly pilfering their trust fund, has four courtside seats for Bulls home games and said he is often mistaken for the Facebook founder when he is seen sitting with famous faces such as Pippen, billionaire Mark Cuban and Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.

"I'm not Mark Zuckerberg," he said.

Pritzker said he is also not the spoiled rich kid some people believe him to be.

"When people meet me they say, 'You're not the way I'd thought you'd be," Pritzker said with a laugh. "I just love to have fun."

Pippen spoke favorably of his courtside companion.

"Matt is a great, great friend. We have a great time watching games and he allows me to sit over with him," Pippen said. "I appreciate that."
