CHARLOTTE, N.C. One of Charlotte s most eligible bachelors is now engaged, NewsChannel 36 has learned.
Charlotte Bobcats majority owner and NBA legend Michael Jordan got engaged on Christmas, a Jordan spokeswoman first confirmed to WCNC Thursday afternoon.
Several celebrity gossip websites reported MJ proposed to longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto recently. Jordan was spotted courtside at the Bobcats game against the Bucks on Monday with friend and New York Yankees baseball star Derek Jeter.
One website reported the couple is spending this week celebrating on a private yacht overseas, but Jordan's spokeswoman told NewsChannel 36 that's not true.
Jordan was married for 17 years to wife Juanita, but the couple divorced in 2006. They have three children.
