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!!!!!

# 7

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. :)

Micheal is not the the good looking guy he use to be so I don’t care who he marry. But I’m sure the money looks good.

This marriage is not a good idea. Why get married, Michael? You know you will not be happy with one woman. And she is in it for the money and more money.

Juanita Jordan was pretty, a lady, real, had good reputation, was older, was a secretary, his family liked her and and MJ played on her …often . Juanita Jordan was unbasketballl wives and was not a brat, crazy spoiled girl like Vanessa Bryant.
YES, Jaunita Jordan walked away with $ at least 100 million easy.
His people tried to stop her from filing for divorce. She filed twice. Too much for too many people and all people all at the big money from MJ, wanted to protect his clean family man, good guy image.

So Ms. white , good luck in that with prenup, she will walk away with some millions, gifts, jewles. Say she settles for a measly , paltry 10 million, still, $10 million. That is good.

MJ is dumb, dummy. Why marry shen he has had marriage and 3 kids all for one woman. Pay Ms. Cuban to be his freind.

Oh, Noel is right. Balck guys, esp, those with power, money, will go for White girls hand over fist.
Jokes on them because the kids come out Black still. These woman get the money.
To each his own. I am not racist. I am mixed, generationally mixed. I prefer White guys . Maybe Black guys if they want me ,but they have to be a real good kind. They are really hard to find.

And one more thing that you can say is racist, but I don’t care what you think: When a white guy is a loser and he can’t attract women in his own race; and when a white woman is a loser and white men reject her; AND then BOTH of them decide to start dating people in other races, that shows you that most of them secretly believe they are better/superior to minorities. Sorry Jared, but I’ve seen this throughout my years and it rings true. So, they’re not good enough for their own race of people to date, but they are good enough for YOU!!! My friend has a handsome, very upstanding brother. He is black.She told me that in California it was always a fat white girl who was after her brother — not lightly either. Chasing him! Throwing themselves at him! These were the girls who could never get a boyfriend in the neighborhood. They were called “fatties.” Those girls acted like they believed black men cannot, WILL NOT DARE to turn them down because they are Caucasian and black men are supposed to want them so badly. Ridiculous and disgusting! I think that is racist of them. Any black man who says no to that, I APPLAUD! Again, for most, race still matters very much in this world.

Jordan and Derek Jeter are best friends. Jeter was spotted in Paris with Minka Kelly today. If Jordan is engaged. i think Jeter may pop the question to Minka too. Jordan his fiance, Derek Jeter and Minka kelly are all in France. Maybe a double wedding.

Are you kiddin’? If you’re rich enough, you should be able to date whomever you want. And for those who’re complaining about skin color, you’ve pretty much “outed” yourselves as the types of angry, overbearing, gold-digging, “sistahs” that Jordan should avoid.

How is Michael Jordan any kind of prize?? His character has always been disgusting, shady and he certainly was no looker. Even less so today! Good luck there chickie. Or not.

What do you mean “rich enough” Trevor? You admitting that’s the only reason they’re dating? Money?

As for you “Additionally” how about STFU? Your comments belong in redneck country. Keep them there, moron.

@really?: How dare you accuse me of trying to stir up racial issues! Screw you! I am white, completely non racist, have dated biracial men myself and happen to have an awesome biracial brother-in-law. I am married to a completely white, yet very olive skinned man now.

Marieme, what kind of losers are you dating? Huh? Black women always get mad when you speak the truth about the white men they tend to choose. So many of them think that white men are the bomb. I’ve seen enough! Most of the men come to you because most white girls do not want them. So take that and eat it!

@noel:

You’re really annoying.

And Ross, you’re probably really ugly and dating or married to Roxie Roker’s twin.

@noel:

you are a racist

its really funny how we now see how ractists other cultures are.

I was able to find good info from your content.

I wanted up to create users one very small word in order to give thanks the moment again about the incredible advice you’ve documented on this site. It’s so surprisingly generous of people like you to give extensively exactly what many individuals might have offered for sale for an e book to get some profit on their own, and in particular seeing that most people could possibly have tried it in case you desired. These secrets as well served to be a great way to recognize that many people have the same passion just as my own to know much more around this problem. Certainly there are a lot more enjoyable moments up front for individuals that scan your blog.
