Jordan’s wife didn’t make the cut for the series after director Jason Hehir said he ‘wasn’t interested in the opinion of wife or kids’, wanting to focus solely on Jordan’s basketball career.

His fifteen season career saw him win six championships with his Chicago Bulls teammates, including Scottie Pippen.

Jordan’s hall of fame basketball career, sales of his Nike Jordan collabs, as well as his position as owner of North Caroline NBA team, the Charlotte Hornets, his net worth is extraordinary. The 57-year-old is reported to be worth a massive £2.1billion.

Michael Jordan Private Wife, Private Life

The basketball star keeps it very private- well, not having an Instagram in this day and age is enough to be labelled a ‘private person’-  but, for the most part, he’s rarely pictured- especially not with his wife.

Jordan is in fact married, and has also been previously married. He was married to first wife, Juanita Vanoy, for 17 years before she filed for divorce on the terms of ‘irreconcilable differences’.

Jordan’s gambling addiction and cheating allegations are also thought to have played a big part in their marriage breakdown.

In their 17-year long marriage, the pair welcomed Jordan’s first three children.

Juanita received £168 million in the divorce settlement.

Michael Jordan Wife: Who’s He With Now?

Just a couple of years after his divorce, in 2008, Jordan went on to meet his now current wife at a nightclub.

41-year-old Cuban-American model, Yvette Prieto and Jordan moved in together in 2009- a year after meeting.

Michael Jordan Wife: No Expenses Spared

They went on to tie the knot in Palm Beach, Florida a couple of years later.

It’s thought over 300 guests, including Tiger Woods and Usher, were in attendance, and that the ceremony itself cost a around $10m.

“The attention to detail was magnificent. You walked into the dining room and it looked like heaven. The room was filled with thousands of candles. Thousands. It was heavenly.”

They then went on to welcome identical twin daughters- Ysabel and Victoria.

As for Jordan’s other kids, he has two sons and another daughter from his previous marriage.

It Runs In The Family

And would you believe, both his sons went on to play basketball. They didn’t make it quite like their Dad, but they no doubt inherited his athletic genes.

His eldest, Jeffrey, is now 31-years-old and married to his childhood sweetheart. He might not play basketball anymore, but he very much keeps work close to home, working for the Nike Jordan brand.

Hard To Compete

Michael’s other son, Marcus, never made it to the NBA, but was a respectable player in his own right:

“A lot of schools that came on late, I didn’t really know if they wanted Marcus Jordan, the basketball player, or Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan’s son.”

He’s Also A Grandad!

As for Jordan’s eldest daughter, Jasmine, she also keeps it in the family as her role of Nike executive assistant, for her Dad’s ‘Air Jordan’ section of the sports giant.
