While young folks were stampeding in malls across the country over Michael Jordan’s Concord sneakers, the hoops legend was focused on other things: namely, popping the question to his girlfriend of three years, Yvette Prieto. The Cuban-American model is also the former girlfriend of Julio Iglesias Jr. Clearly ready to walk down the aisle, her and Jordan own a three-bedroom home together in Miami’s Highlands. We have to add that Jordan’s previous marriage of 17 years with Juanita Vanoy, not only produce three children but was ranked the “Most Expensive Divorce Ever” by Forbes Magazine—Vanoy received a $168 million settlement, the couple's seven-acre estate in Chicago and custody of the kids. So…. um…doesn’t a second trip down the aisle (with a much younger woman, at that) seem like a pretty big financial risk? Is love that blind?
