Michael Jordan Marriage: NBA Legend To Wed Yvette Prieto In April [Report]

Basketball icon Michael Jordan is apparently ready to tie knot for the second time.

According to USA Today, Jordan and his fiance, Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto, filed for a marriage license Thursday morning in West Palm Beach Florida.

A spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Courthouse confirmed the application for a license, which is good for 60 days (May 9).

Jordan,50, and Prieto,33, met and started dating in 2008 and got engaged in December of 2011. TMZ reports they are set to get hitched on April 27.

The marriage will be the second for the former Bulls star. He was previously married to Juanita Vanoy in September 1989, and they divorced in 2006. They have three children together (two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine) and Vanoy received about $168 million in their settlement, which, at that time, was the largest celebrity divorce sum to date.

Jordan isn’t the only NBA superstar getting married this year. Heat forward LeBron James is set to wed his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson in September.

LeBron — who coincidentally got engaged around the same time that Jordan popped the question to Yvette — recently sent out “Save The Weekend” pre-invites for his wedding, which is scheduled to take place in San Diego, California.
