Michael Jordan Marries Longtime Girlfriend Yvette Prieto
Sports legend Michael Jordan wed his longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto in a lavish ceremony in Palm Beach on Saturday. The former hoopster, 50, married the 35-year-old model in front of 500 family and friends at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church.
The newlyweds spared no expense on their big day. A source told People:
“They’ve been planning for months and months. He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.”
A reported 1,500 more people were invited to the reception at the Bears Club — where they were treated to a special performance by The Voice mentor Usher, who serenaded the happy couple with some of his biggest hits. Other high-profile guests included professional golfer Tiger Woods and his girlfriend, Olympian Lindsey Vonn.
Michael and Yvette met at a Miami nightclub in 2008. Jordan proposed over the 2011 holiday season.
This is the second marriage for the onetime Chicago Bulls star. Michael was previously married to Juanita Vanoy for 17 years. They divorced in 2006 and have three grown children.
