Michael Jordan Pops the Question

michael jordan gets engaged


Michael Jordan had a busy time over the holiday weekend.   Besides opening Christmas gifts and annoying his former co-workers in the NBA, Jordan took the time to pop the question to his long-time girlfriend, Yvette Prieto.  During a vacation in Monaco, the former NBA superstar asked his girlfriend to marry him.  He’s apparently been bitten by the love bug after swearing that he’d never get married again.

Jordan made $60 million this year, and likely pulled in a major lump of cash after people lined up for blocks for a chance to purchase the new Air Jordan sneakers.  In his last divorce, Jordan gave up $300 million to his ex-wife, Juanita, and it’s likely that the second wife is going to be asked to sign a prenuptial agreement.

Sources are saying that Jordan paid seven figures for the engagement ring, but his reps haven’t released a statement.

The Latest: A woman’s face was slashed and there were several violent incidents surrounding the release of the new Air Jordans: Dr. Boyce Watkins and Yvette Carnell ask whether Air Jordan Mania is an embarrassment for black people.  Click to watch
