We estimate the strong coupling constant between the negative parity nucleons with pi meson within the lightcone QCD sum rules. A method for eliminating the unwanted contributions coming from the nucleon-nucleon and nucleon-negative parity nucleon transition is presented. It is observed that the value of the strong coupling constant of the negative parity nucleon N* N* pi transition is smaller by about 50% compared to the coupling constant of the positive parity NN pi transition.
