Yvette Prieto – Model Yvette Prieto is getting married to NBA legend Michael Jordan. She has been dating the basketball star for more than three years. A spokeswoman said he popped the question midway through presents on Christmas Day.
This would be Jordan’s second marriage. He was married for 17 years to Juanita, but the couple divorced in 2006, and settled for a reported amount of $168 million. They have two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine.
Jordan is the current owner of the NBA team the Charlotte Bobcats.
But in 2008, the first round of false wedding reports hit the web. At the time, a report falsely claimed the two ran off and got married. Prieto is a Cuban American model who reportedly once also dated Julio Iglesias, Jr.
The couple bought a 3-bedroom, 5000-square-foot house in Kendall, Florida for $300,000 in 2009. That same year, Prieto headlined news again after she appeared Jordan’s basketball Hall of Fame induction. In January 2010, the couple was often spotted by news around Miami Beach.
Miami-Dade County records at the time indicated that couple had bought in the Highlands at the Kendall gated community near Magic City. It remains unknown if the couple kept the residence for themselves after Miami news published the address, even the mortgage amount, online in February of 2009. When sought for news comment at the time, Prieto reportedly said “I can’t talk about the house just yet. Sorry.”
There are no details on a specific wedding date for Jordan yet, but we’ll update as soon as we know.
