NBA: Michael Jordan’s Girlfriend Model Yvette Prieto




Meet Yvette Prieto, the current girlfriend of NBA legend Michael Jordan. Yvette is a 30 year old, Cuba-born, Miami-raised model working at her father’s company. Prieto is a very famous fashion model in her country. She started out doing some small-time commercials before hitting on to the bikini calendars and other beach photo shoots.

Before dating Jordan, Yvette was romantically involved with Julio Iglesias Jr, the son of famed Spanish singer Julio Iglesias, in 2001.  Before dating Yvette, Jordan was married to Juanita Vanoy for seventeen years before their divorce was finalized in 2006.


Their relationship was first reported last summer in March 2008 when they were seen having dinner together at Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink. According to several reports,they are planning on getting married.

Recently, Yvette and Michael bought a house in sub-urban Miami for $281,000. Jordan and Prieto took out a $196,000, 30-year mortgage on the house, according to public records. Speculation is, the couple took out the $196,000 mortgage because Prieto filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002. Peep the photo below of the house the couple bought in Miami.


Built in 1996, the couple’s new house has three bedrooms and two baths (according to public records) and sits on a 0.13-acre (5,560-square-foot) lot, according to public records. According to public records, the house measures around 2,517 square feet.

Here are some more pictures of  Yvette and Michael with a group of friends celebrating Yvette`s birthday at a restaurant in Miami, FL.




Here are some more pictures of  singer Tyrese, Michael , and Yvette visiting the Grand Gala Suite at the 135th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 2, 2009 in Louisville, Kentucky.



Prior to dating Yvette and while married to ex-wife Juanita, there were previous rumors of Jordan having affairs with Lisa Micelli and Karla Knafel.

According to several reports, Karla began her affair with Michael Jordan in December 1989. She was a singer in a band that performed in a hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. NBA referee Eddie Rush told Karla that he knew Michael Jordan and that he was in town to play the Indiana Pacers. Rush called Jordan and Karla and Michael talked on the phone. Knafel became pregnant during the affair and she claims that Jordan “demanded that she abort the baby”. She refused.

Peep the photo below of a younger Jordan and Karla.


Fast forward all the way to 2002, Knafel filed a $5 million lawsuit against Jordan saying that he promised to pay her in hush money about the affair. Knafel also filed a paternity test.Knafel and Jordan fought it out in court. In December 2002, Jordan won the court decision because he claimed that Knafel was trying to extort money from him and DNA test results proved Jordan was not the father.

Here is a 2002 photo below of  a much older Karla and Jordan during the time they were fighting it out in court.


Now meet Lisa Miceli, another woman who filed 3 paternity suits against Jordan, which again proved that he was not the father of her 4 year old child at the time.

Peep the the 2008 photo of Lisa during an injuction hearing for her to stay away from Jordan.


After divorcing ex-wife Juanita and before meeting  Yvette Prieto, Jordan was photo’d out at a club getting his “grind on” with 2 women. Peep the photo below!

  1. I’ve looked at this site. Not all the Black Men here have non-black wives. I think it’s your environment that dictates who you end up with. Many Black Men are forced into a world were, most of the women around them will not be black, so it’s a numbers game.

    I think how you act and look together is a better indicator. Some of these men need fashion consultants really bad. They look really dated when married to such pretty women. It gives of this Sugar Daddy/Gold Digger vibe.

  2. Well I’ve read the comments and it sounds like the same recycled stuff I have heard before. Ladies y’all love to complain about lack of respect for the black woman( there’s truth to this). It seems y’all are not taking the obstacle that black man faces into consideration. It’s seem like your perception is stereotype influenced, and pushed by your own emotional pains. Cause let’s be real if blackmen spend so much time disrespecting blackwomen in the media. The black woman is just as guilty of the same thing they complain about. You can not demand respect then go and consign all types of stereotypes and disrespect cause it gives the light to your plight as a woman. See being a strong man or woman has nothing to do wit being asshole or being bitchy. Ladies check yourself. Nobody likes a winer. Cause you know black male bashing is just as common as the word bitch in rap music. Example: ” Girl men ain’t nothing but dogs” or ” Girl don’t trust no man”. Ask yourself this: how do you interact wit the blackmen in your life. You can’t expect blacken to make change if your not willing to. Peace!!!

  3. This is funny. All these complaints. This man is happy and you are hating because he didnt pick u. Im a black man… and Im not rich. But I can say, Ive had more american-sistas front and bs, act like im not good enough, complain, show disrespect, and surely dont cater to me. Always acting like you are owed something. I dealt with it because I didnt know anything else. Until I met a fine-ass Brasilian…who was black btw. She was raised in her country, super fine, slim with real long hair, and a nice person.
    She showed me love like I never had and that was it for me. Since her (1997), Ive had nothing but foreign girlfriends. Its only when you date other woman like Asian, Latin, etc. that you can see the bs from american woman including white girls too. I know some black woman from other countries that cant even relate to the ones here at all, so they dont hang with you. Get over yourselves. Your egos are crazy. If I dont pay attention to you, that means I hate myself? what kind of arrogance is that? you truly believe you are the ‘ultimate’ and ‘logical’ choice, but you are not.

    There are so many woman in the world…who the he– are you supposed to be..Royalty? If you sit back and let other woman come along and treat me with more respect, show me more love, and honor, do you think Im going to turn it down and wait for you to act like that?? Yea right. Im international all day. Im spoiled like you dont even know…Im so used to being catered too and chased by beautiful woman. Then I look at my own sistas, and its finger-snap, eyes rolling, bs. Find me a slim waisted, phat butt, long hair, smooth-skined, not selfish woman in out community that will love me and Im not rich, famous, making 6-figures, etc.
    Yet I pull model-type Latinas all day. 70% of american sistas have no man/husband. And you blame us men for it. Your the perfect catch and so on. If you were the perfect catch, other men from other cultures would be lined up at your doorstep too. I dont see them. All I see is the black man, that you diss in public, talk behind his back, challenge him, question his judgement, encourage others that he is not to be trusted, etc. You, the perfect catch??..yea ok…NO THANKS.

  4. These black guys (stars, athletes) AMAZE me how they only want a white or a non-black woman! It’s like they’re nobody unless they have one of them on their arms and it doesn’t matter if they’re uneducated, a stripper, or someone who has screwed one of their friends; as long as she is NONBLACK, it’s all that matter! It’s almost like a badge of honor or an accomplishment for them.

    Don’t get me wrong, there are bad seeds in all races, but the majority of these guys only downgrade sisters and say that they are gold diggers and too loud; it’s only an excuse to date a “nonblack” woman they truly desire. There letting them take control of their money, so why is a black woman considered a gold digger when she does?

    Perfect example of a “nonblack” woman who is everything some of these athletes say about black women is Larsa Pippen, who is married to NBA player Scottie Pippen. This woman is so ugly inside and thinks everyone is beneath her. She’s uneducated, materialistic, shallow, downgrades her nannies and has been through a bunch of them, has called an ederly woman a bitch, and brags on how beautiful she is and how she is in control of all of Scottie’s money so he will not go anywhere. If a black woman were to say that, all hell would break out!

    One day I was looking at Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s wedding on tv and when all of the players and movie stars pulled up and got out of their cars, each one of them had a white woman on their arm. It was totally embarrassing to see. It displayed to all of the white people who were there that these men do not like themselves! It looked like a competitive circus of who had the best one! These men have black mothers for goodness sake!

    A person is attracted to who they like but when you start to put down your own race in order to date a “nonblack” woman, it’s totally disgusting and displays that you really don’t love yourself as a person!

    And I am a black woman who is married to a wonderful and educated BLACK man, so I am NOT desperate and if I were single, I wouldn’t have a desire to love a man who doesn’t love himself; athlete or not! It’s a total turnoff to see!

  5. O.K. “Black CEO” (right!) and “WhiteWomanLover:”
    If you love white women, fine! But what’s up with saying so many terrible things about black women when you are black yourself? And, furthermore, there are ALL kinds of BW (beautiful, friendly, fat and mean) just as there are all kinds of WW and other races. Honestly, you sound like a very hateful man, I feel sorry for the white woman who has you!

  6. Hi Everyone! Interesting posts, lots of emotion on all sides!
    As an African-American woman I want to say I’m not opposed to interracial dating and marriage but I’ve very concerned about how so many African-American men seem to have deep-seated hate for their own women.
    No other race of men (publically) puts down their women the way so many black men do. It’s in the music (bit… and “hoe”,) it’s in the culture and, if you just read the notes here, you can see it’s all over social media.
    When you hate BW on a certain level, you are hating yourself. It’s sad that so many of these guys don’t see this.

  7. I am a big fan of Michael Jordon but Michael we as black people need to know when to draw the line. Now always remember the bridge that brought u thru, cause if u was a nobody think about it, those women would not look at u twice. I want our black men to remember always keep the woman u had when u didnt have shit.

  8. No matter what race you are black white asian etc, all men and women have something about them that people like/dislike. any sex/race can stink be rich be poor have attitude etc. not everyone are meant to get along with each other; look at yourself and your attitude before you say im not dating/or they are only dating a black white asian because they got attitude, dating for the money et cetera. im a black female alum of unc and yes more exist all shapes and sizes along with white asian indian latinos and more of all shapes and sizes,smart, dumb, and no common sense at all, lets not forget smells. i choose a mate by what i like about that individual because not everyone is the same. seek therapy if u are that judgmental in making such negative remarks about the race of someone you dont want to date and with some of these comments alot of you should be happy if you have a relationship of any kind if you have one at all.
