UPDATE: 04/29/2013: While we still don’t know if the prior update rumor was true, we do know now that Yvette Prieto is Michael Jordan’s wife. The couple was married in a small ceremony over the weekend in front of 300 guests. The reception took place at a golf course near where Jordan lives and had entertainment by Usher and, well honestly, after Usher, who cares who else was there.
UPDATE: 09/26/2011: Rumors are flying that Michael Jordan proposed to Yvette recently on a vacation in Monaco. While no official statement has been released, rumors indicate the the one and only Michael Jordan is engaged to Yvette, and that Yvette brought home a ring valued at 7 figures… Stay tuned for more details.
Michael Jordan began dating Yvette Prieto in July, 2008. Prieto is a 31 year old Cuban American model, who previously dated Julio Iglesias Jr. We should also note, that despite internet rumors, they did not get married in December, 2008, and were not expecting a child in February, 2009. As of April, 2013, the couple has filed for a marriage license and the expectation is that they will be married any day.
Late 2008, Jordan and Prieto bought a 5,500 square foot home in suburban Miami. They took out a 30 year mortgage worth $196,000. It’s believed that they took out this mortgage as a way to rebuild Prieto’s credit after she filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002.
SIDE NOTE RANT: You want to know why everyone hates bloggers? It’s because of douchebags like Kevin Allen at the Chicago Sun Times. Allen, who I’m sure is a guy that would dispute the fact that he’s nothing more than a blogger, not only posted the address of their new house, but a friggin google map to the place. We’ve been accused of crossing the boundaries of newsworthiness to intrusiveness, but that is a whole new level of invasion. Even we think that’s messed up.
