Michael Jordan scored the best Christmas gift of all.The Charlotte Bobcats owner got engaged to longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto, his spokeswoman confirmed to WCNC-TV.Since putting a ring on it, the two have been celebrating on a yacht in the French Riveria, according to gossip website Tattle Tailz.Yvette Prieto is a Cuban-born model who has lived with Jordan since 2009.
It’s the second marriage for the NBA legend, who was married to his first wife, Juanita, for 17 years.They divorced in 2006, with Juanita receiving a whopping $168 million from the split.Jordan has two sons from his first marriage.Yvette Prieto, the model who is engaged to Michael Jordan is now the subject of intense curiosity and millions of Google searches. But who is she?
(Surprise! Surprise!) she’s a model, a Cuban-American one at that. The 33-year-old Yvette Prieto got her start in the modeling by strutting her stuff in commercials and swimsuit calendars.But don’t think Yvette’s just some pretty face in a bikini. She studied business and spent time working for her father’s company before she went on to get paid for her stunning looks.
Jordan and his bride-to-be, Yvette Prieto, have been dating for years, so this won’t be a 72- day marriage involving nude yoga sessions, made for TV weddings, covers of tabloids, and a certain power forward on the New Jersey Nets who is now the most hated player in the NBA.
How a man who recently lost $150 million in a divorce can go back to the well so quickly (no matter how hot she is) must speak to how smitten Jordan is with the mysterious Yvette Prieto. Or maybe when you have somewhere in the vicinity of a billion dollars, losing a cool hundred and fifty million isn’t that big of a deal.We’re guessing more photos of Yvette Prieto will come out as more people investigate her past, and we’ll add the best ones here when they surface.
