NBA legend Michael Jordan got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, 32-year-old model Yvette Prieto, on Christmas Eve, and the interwebs are going wild over the news. The two have lived together since 2009. This will be the second marriage for Jordan, who was married to his first wife for 17 years. Prior to her relationship with Jordan, Prieto dated Julio Iglesias Jr., the older brother of Enrique Iglesias.
Forty-eight-year old Jordan, currently owns the NBA team, the Charlotte Bobcats, and rakes in more than $1 billion in revenues with his brand endorsements. According to the International Business Times, he “accounts for” 71 percent of the U.S. basketball shoe market. He’s failed “over and over again” in his life, and this is why he succeeds.
