Michael Jordan engaged to girlfriend
Charlotte Bobcats majority owner Michael Jordan had something extra special to celebrate this Christmas: he and his longtime girlfriend are now engaged. A spokeswoman for the basketball legend on Thursday confirmed his engagement to Yvette Prieto, a Cuban-American model. She said she could not answer other questions about the couple. No wedding date was announced. Jordan, 48, and Prieto, 33, have reportedly been dating since 2008. Jordan, who became the Bobcats' majority owner in 2010, is one of North Carolina's most recognizable names worldwide. He was elected to the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame in 1993 and inducted last year. The couple owns a 5,500-square-foot home in Miami. Jordan also owns a 7,000-square-foot condo at The Trust in uptown Charlotte, which he bought last year for $3.15 million.
