Michael Jordan applies for Florida marriage license


MATT SEDENSKY Associated Press

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (AP) -- Basketball legend Michael Jordan appears ready to get married again.

The former NBA star and Charlotte Bobcats owner and his fiancée appeared at the main Palm Beach County courthouse Thursday morning to apply for a marriage license. That's according to Kathy Burstein, a spokeswoman for the clerk's office.

Jordan got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto, in December 2011. They have until May 9 to use their marriage license.

It will be the second marriage for No. 23. He married Juanita Vanoy in September 1989, and they divorced in 2006. They have two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine.

You forgot the rest of the story

And.... He also applied for a dog licence. His last dog of 12 years, a terrier, had 2 litters giving him 5 males and 4 females. He now will be walking a poodle and rumored to be a male. Really ??? who care about either! Why is this news?


17 years younger, white. Figures.

From media reports at the time

his first wife walked with $240 Million.

Any bets on a tight pre-nuptial agreement?
