NBA Legend Michael Jordan Weds Model
Probably the most famous basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan married long time girlfriend, 34 year-old model Yvette Prieto last Saturday, April 27th at Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida with roughly 500 people in attendance. Another 1,500 people were invited to the reception, which was held at the Bears Club, located on a huge golf course in Jupiter, Florida.
This is Jordan’s second marriage. The 50 year-old NBA legend’s first marriage was to Juanita Vanoy in September 1989. They have 3 children together, 2 sons (Jeffrey Michaels & Marcus James) and a daughter, Jasmine. When Jordan and Vanoy filed for divorce on December 29, 2006, it was reported that Juanita received a $168 million settlement, making it the largest celebrity divorce settlement in history at the time on public record.
Jordan’s new bride, Yvette is a Cuban-American model that has posed for famous designers such as Alexander Wang. She went to school for business management. Prieto and Jordan have been dating since 2008 and after a year moved in together. Jordan proposed last Christmas Eve.
