Back in December we told you that legendary basketball icon Michael Jordan and his new wife, Yvette Prieto-Jordan, were expecting a set of twins. We’re happy to report that the newlyweds are now the proud parents of twin girls. The sports mogul’s spokesperson, Estee Portnoy, tells the The Associated Press that Yvette gave birth on Sunday night in West Palm Beach, Florida. The twins are identical and have been named Victoria and Ysabel/
Michael married the former model this past April after meeting her six years ago. Their star-studded reception was held at a private golf club in Jupiter, Florida. In addition to the newborn twins, Michael fathers three other children—including two sons, Jefferey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter Jasmine— from his previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy. They divorced in 2006.
Mom and babies are said to be doing well.
“Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival,” Portnoy said.
Michael Jordan,50, is about to be a father again. Thankfully this time, he’s pretty sure it’s his!
Last month we told you that the legendary athlete and his wife of eight months, Yvette Prieto were with child. Well, it actually turns out that they’re expecting two! According to TMZ, Yvette, 34, is carrying identical twins. Sources have chosen not to disclose how far along Yvette is into her pregnancy, but they say she’s progressing just fine.
Michael and Yvette dated for five years before tying the knot back in April during a star-studded ceremony in Jupiter, Florida. Aside from the new babies, he has three children, who are all in their 20s. It will be pretty interesting to see him starting over again. You know, warming bottles and changing diapers. But as previously stated by Drenna Armstrong, he’s retired, so he should have plenty of time to devote to his family’s newest additions once they arrive.
In the past, Michael has been involved in his share of paternity drama, with two women coming forward claiming to have small children by him. As it turns out, neither of the children were his.
We wish Michael and Prieto all the best!
First comes love, then comes marriage…and now it looks like Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto are on their way with the baby carriage.
Reps for the Jordans have confirmed to US Weekly that Yvette is pregnant with the couple’s first child. While they didn’t reveal how far along she is, a source leaked a picture to GigiOnThat and she appears to be very far along in her pregnancy.
This will be 34 year Prieto’s first child but the fourth child for 50 year old Jordan. His oldest children are with his ex-wife Juanita Jordan who he divorced back in 2006. In fact, Jordan is starting completely over in the baby department as his youngest child with Juanita is 19 years old. The good thing is that he’s retired so he can be completely hands on now with the feedings and changing of diapers.
Jordan and Prieto have been together for five years and were married in April in a huge ceremony in Jupiter, Florida.
I wonder if his older children are excited about the impending arrival of their new sibling. It has been just the three of them for a very long time.
Congratulations to them and we wish Yvette a safe pregnancy and a healthy bundle of joy!
When will these women learn? Paternity is not something you can fake. A few months ago, we told you about all the women filing paternity suits against Michael Jordan of all people. And I say “of all people” not because I believe Jordan to be some sort of angel but because Michael Jordan is who he is, it would be super sloppy of him to creep without a condom. There’s just too much at stake and in his decades long career, he’s kept his nose relatively clean. First there was Pamela Smith and then we told you about 30 year old Laquetta Theus of Atlanta, Georgia.
In case you don’t remember her. Theus posted this picture of a child with a poor Jordan look-a-like.
Let’s pretend we all didn’t see this laughable picture. Anything’s possible right? True but looking at Ms. Theus, I would be highly appalled if she and Michael Jordan ran in the same circles or ever even crossed paths. And a DNA test proved my little assumption was pretty accurate. According to theGrio, an Atlanta judge threw out Theus’ case claiming Jordan was not the father of her child. And not only that Theus was ordered to pay Jordan’s legal fees.
A previous paternity test had already determined that the child’s father was Hubert Henderson Jr. According to the Atlanta Daily World, Theus claimed Hubert Henderson was an alias Jordan used. I guess when you’re rich you can buy alias DNA.
Theus, who did not have a lawyer representing her in the case, owes Jordan around $6,500 in fees. Wonder if she “got” it?
Let me stop. I’m not going to clown her any more than I already have because clearly this woman doesn’t have it all together.
Michaels Jordan’s life is becoming one huge Maury episode. Back in August we told you that Pamela Smith, a woman who filed a false paternity suit against the legendary athlete, was ordered by the courts to pay $10,000. Though we’re sure Michael was able to let out a sigh of relief after the ruling, it appears that it was only momentary. According to TMZ, another woman has come forward claiming that the 50-year-old retired athlete is the father of her child.
According to the filed paternity suit, a Georgia woman by the name of Laquetta Theus is claiming that she gave birth to a baby girl back in August of 2010 and of course, she says Michael is the father. As you may have guessed, she’s going after the newly married Charlotte Bobcats owner for child support.
“Michael Jordan when are you goning to support your 2year old daughter you drop 10million on your nice wedding that you had april 27 that was nice but dont you think It time that you support your daughter and the way you should,” Laquetta said in a Facebook post.
“Every sense 2008 I been now you It’s been nothing but a lie you told me and I just want you to man up to your daughter and her father should not lie to her about nothing so I relly hope that you could be the best father that you can be to her she look just like you so stop keeping your daughter a secret It should not be luke [like] that she yours. It time Michael Jordan’23′ four you to become a father and your daughter life you tell her you love her when are you goning to show her I pray to God that you become that father figer [figure] and her life, she continued.
Michael’s attorneys have already responded to Laquetta’s filed suit, claiming that the paternity of her daughter has already been proven and Michael is not the father. Laquetta had better be 100% sure that Michael is the father of her kid. We all see what Pamela’s false accusations got her.
“MTO has struck again! Lol but just like the last time, I’m chillin and not bothered. Negativity go to the left and take a seat. No time for that! Everyone have an amazing day!” the Syracuse University senior wrote in a caption beneath a photo message, which further addressed the rumors.
The photo message reads:
”Until Love, Trust, Honesty, Repost, Loyalty, Commitment, Genuine, Happiness and other characteristics or aspects I want in a relationship is defined by one gender then and only then will I discuss my sexual preference.”
The reports, which claimed that Jasmine had officially come “out of the closet,” surfaced after she posted photos of herself with a hugging a woman named Carmen.
It seems like she handled that pretty well.
If you’ll recall, we told you a while back about Pamela Smith. She filed a paternity suit against basketball legend Michael Jordan and said that since he was the father of her 17-year-old child, he owed her some major child support. At the time, she claims she wasn’t doing it to cash in on his fortune, but for her son, who wanted her to file the suit so Jordan would finally acknowledge him. Here was the story we shared in March:
Smith claims that she got pregnant by Jordan back in 1995 when he was still, obviously, married to Juanita Jordan. She says that she’s actually always had a good relationship with him and in ways, he’s provided for she and Taj. Smith said she has no reason to call Jordan out at all – primarily because she never needed his money to survive – but Taj begged her to file the paternity suit and for child support.
Smith claims that over the years, they’ve received money and gifts from Jordan but Taj always had to keep it a secret that his father was the famous basketball player. But now, he wants to be acknowledged as part of the family too. She claims that Taj wants Jordan to be a bigger part of his life.
Well, that isn’t happening. After asking for a DNA test, child support, and Jordan calling it all a big lie, we know that Smith wound up dropping her suit with the quickness in Georgia. And while she thought that would probably be the end of that, Jordan went after her in court, claiming Smith’s whole case was a huge publicity stunt. According to TMZ, a judge agreed, because after they pointed out that Smith hired a PR rep before she thought to even get a lawyer, the biggest reveal was this: Smith established the paternity of her son way back in 2003, and it was not Jordan. The judge found that she was just trying to tarnish Jordan’s name for the hell of it (and probably for some cash), and the judge has ordered her to pay up, covering the costs of Jordan’s unnecessary legal bills. The total of all that is almost 10 grand, coming in at $9,704.13. Hopefully other women will learn that it sure won’t fly when you lie, because she’s having to pay up when I’m sure she thought she was going to get paid. You live and you learn…
For a groupie, there is no bigger prize than getting pregnant by your celebrity lover. It’s like winning the lottery — so they think. More often than not, headlines about them and their baller boyfriends read like an episode of the Maury show, particularly for these 15 women who hung their heads in shame after they heard the judge say “You Are Not the Father.”
Pamela Smith should have looked for a better baller to blame. He’s the world’s most famous basketball player and he made it to 50 without a paternity scandal.
That’s a man who’s too smart to let a groupie get her paws on his millions. In March, a judge ordered MJ to take a paternity test to determine if Pamela’s 16-year-old son Grant Taj Reynolds was his. But seeing as Pam already sued MJ for paternity years ago and lost, no one expects Mike to be the father.
Most of us grew up in a household where “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am” was the norm when responding to an adult. We were taught to say please and thank you, refrain from interrupting conversations, and hold the door for people. It only took so many glares and spankings if we ever forgot these life lessons — and these signs of respect never left most of us as we became adults.
Unfortunately there are certain celebs who think they are immune to such niceties and respectable behavior and have racked up quite the reputation for rudeness. If only they followed Aretha’s advice and gave a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T…
Don’t let the beautiful face fool ya! Notorious for her lateness, supermodel Naomi Campbell is also known for hitting her helpers — from assistants to therapists. Many people in her path suffer the wrath of her mean streak and nothing seems to keep her outrageous behavior in check – not even five-o. She was detained for assaulting two police officers as well.
From Hello Beautiful
The woman suing Michael Jordan for paternity and child support has unexpectedly dropped the case. According to TMZ, Pamela Smith has filed legal documents in Georgia asking the judge to dismiss her case against MJ, and her request was granted without prejudice (meaning she can refile at a later time).
