Yvette Prieto and Michael Jordan Love Story. Where Can Moneybags Be Met?

How do these girls find the places, where the moneybags can be found? Yvette Prieto shares the secrets of a successful hunt in the interview. She said, they met in a “not-so-sexy” night club in Miami and danced together there. Beautiful Yvette and rich Michael met in late 2007 and gradually started dating. The couple made first public appearance in 2008 at MJ’s restaurant “Michael's Genuine Food and Drink”. Visitors of the venue in Miami watched legendary Michael, who ate filet of mutton, and a slim fair-haired woman, who ordered a steak and looked at Air Jordan with deep love and respect.

In 2009 the things got more serious and the couple moved together. His Airness invited the young lady Yvette (the woman is 16 years younger of a stellar athlete) to share the roof of his luxurious mansion in Miami.

In 2011 Jordan proposed to Yvette and two years later they wedded. During 5 years of their pre-marriage relationships Yvette stood in her famous husband’s shadow. But when she put on a white dress and said “Yes!”, Michael’s fans felt, they had lots of questions to new Mrs. Jordan.

Does she really love Michael, or is it just “marriage of convenience”?  Where did she work? When was she born? In fact, Yvette Prieto doesn’t make a mystery of her pre-Jordan life.

Yvette was born in 1979 and studied business at a college. The young graduate started her career in the company of her father, Carlos Prieto. But Yvette had something more, than her talent to business. She had gorgeous look. Yvette is 168 cm tall, she is very slim and has well-shaped body. The woman is of Hispanic ethnicity, that’s why she has attractive olive complexion. Yvette understood, she can monetize her beauty. Prieto started career of a model.

But her attempts to become the next Giselle Bundchen or Adriana Lima failed. Her main achievements as a model were photoshoots for various calendars and work with Alexander Wang (a designer). If Yvette’s photos at a catwalk were not so popular, her pics with rich and famous men brought her international fame.

Before Michael Jordan the woman had another affluent boyfriend – Julio Iglesias Jr (Enrique Iglesias’s brother). By the way, Julio characterized Yvette as a “fantastic, beautiful and simple girl”.

So, Yvette Prieto is a great woman, but the beauty has the skeleton in her family closet.

Financial Fraud of Yvette Prieto’s Relatives

Yvetto’s little dirty secret is connected with her parents. Her father and mother were sentenced to 1, 5 years of prison for financial fraud. The Priestos claimed for a solid amount of money from their insurance company to cover the medical bill from the hospital. The company paid $410, 000 for medical procedures, which turned to be fictional. So, Yvette’s parents were sent to a prison and the young woman herself went bust. She filed for bankruptcy in 2002. But now, when Yvette has the status of celeb’s wife, she can be sure, her financial future is bright. Nevertheless her prenup is quite unfavorable.

Girls, if you think, that it’s great to be Mrs. Jordan, you are not so right. MJ paid about $168 million to his first wife, Juanita Vanoy, for 17 years of their marriage. Thus Juanita got about $10 million per each year of her marriage.

Not to fall into the marriage trap again, Air Jordan signed unfavorable prenup with his second wife, Yvette. In case of separation, Mrs. Jordan will get about $1 million for each year of her marriage. If she file for divorce after 10 years of family life, Yvette will get just $5 million. It sounds unfair, doesn’t it? But Michael Jordan’s fans can be sure, Yvette got married MJ for love!
