Michael Jordan: Engaged to Yvette Prieto!

Michael Jordan is engaged to Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto!

The 48-year-old basketball legend (and Bobcats owner) got engaged to Yvette, 32, over the Christmas weekend after dating for three years.

This will be Michael‘s second marriage. He divorced Juanita Vanoy in 2006 after 16 years of marriage. (She reportedly walked away with $186 million.) They share three kids – daughter Jasmine and sons Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James.

Yvette was romantically linked to singer Julio Iglesias Jr.Enrique’s older brother.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Better get a prenup.

Juanita wasn’t light enough for him, he had to go all the way. Look at who he’s been with, certainly no dark-skinned women. It shows a lack of character in my opinion, in the end he’s no different from Kobe and Tiger, he’s just been able to hide it better. I won’t be spending my money on anything Jordon anymore. In five years half will go to the white chick. It may sound racist, but it’s racist that so many black women are without mates. The white man is not the racist enemy anymore, sadly the black man.

I certainly won’t support him anymore if he marries that white/latino chick. Juanita wasn’t light enough for him, he had to go all the way.

Dude likes ‘em white, I see.

Run Yvette run! He’s a cheater, that is, unless you’re a gold digger which you probably are, in which case DON’T SIGN A PRENUP!!!!!

ewwww…they both can do better

@noel: Wow, racist much? I’m not at all, but a lot of black men do see it as a social step up to marry a white woman and black women HATE it when they lose a black man to a white woman, a la Nicole Simpson.

I’m a white woman and have dated many a biracial man. I just think dark skinned men are hot. It’s not a racist thing at all!

@noel: YOU ARE SO RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder if you’d say the same thing if she was black and he was white.

@noel:
I don’t agree with Michael marrying this woman but who am i to judge. If he wants to be stupid and allow her to win the Jordan sweepstakes, thats on him. Just because she is not black doesn’t mean he’s wrong for being with her. There are some black women who may not be marriage material. Grow up, u sound very dumb. Just because you won’t spend any money on Mike anymore doesn’t mean he is going broke.

Yuck, he is hideous. I doubt she’d be with him if it were not for the money.

So what Noel when did black men become the big prize, you are ignorant my wife is black she opened her heart up to a white guy you need to do the same

@noel and mimi: you are either a non-black person trying to stir up a race fight here or just ignorant: statistically, MOST people are married to people of their own race. that is a statistical fact. MOST ball players are married to women of their own race but of course you focus on the famous ones who don’t. WHO CARES? love who you want to love. If she is Cuban, she probably has lots of black lineage anyway. Juanita was 100% black.

Besides, I know a lot of black women who are making the choice to marry white men instead of black men – in fact, i know many who have that as a preference as i know many white men who seems to love the darkest black women. These are all choices. At the end of the day, when we all die, who CARES???

I only date white women too. All Hispanics refer white girls.

@noel: Speak for yourself. I don’t care who black men date or marry.
I’ve never dated a black guy and my current boyfriend happens to be white.
As a black girl, I am an individual and most black men, as any other men, are strangers to me. In other words, i don’t care about them.

@A you sound as confused as the ones complaining about MJ’s choice in a wife. There is nothing wrong with you choosing to date outside your race but claiming black men as strangers? Black is your race and heritage, including black men. Black men don’t have to be considered strangers because you choose not to date them. 2012, who we choose to marry or date should only concern the two parties, no one else’s opinions should matter. People need to get over themselves and let others live their lives as the see fit.

Michael Jordan was worse than Tiger Wood, I heard personal story from Puerto Rico years ago.

@noel: You have low self-esteem and a racial inferiority complex.

Good luck. I hope he’s received some counseling or something to help him with his gambling issue and cheating ways.

@Tony: Rich (black or otherwise) men have always been a prize. I promise you, many women would have their head bald for the chance to date him.

@Me: Um, that is fact. I don’t know the majority of black men just as I don’t know the majority of white men or asian men etc.
Skin color means nothing to me. It’s just a shell that says nothing more about me than my racial heritage. I’m a woman first. A woman who happens to be black and my boyfriend is a man who happens to be white. We don’t care about those superficial things.
He’s a man and i’m a woman. End of.

@noel: Black women no mate ? Let’s change that. Give me a shout, I am single and looking. :)
