Who is Michael Jordan’s wife Yvette Prieto, and why does she NOT appear in The Last Dance? – The Sun

MICHAEL JORDAN is a household name on both sides of the Atlantic.

The basketball superstar shot to fame in the 1990s with the Chicago Bulls and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.

Jordan won six NBA titles with Chicago and their rise to the top has been chronicled in popular Netflix documentary Last Dance.

Who is Michael Jordan’s wife Yvette Prieto?

One person you may have noticed who is missing from the access-all-areas doc is Jordan's current wife Yvette.

The basketball star was first hitched in 1989, when marrying Juanita Vanoy with whom he had three children.

But the pair split up first in 2002, before reconciling and eventually divorcing in 2006.

A year later, Jordan met Cuban-American model Prieto when dancing at a Miami nightclub.

Currently 41 years old, Yvette has modelled for Alexander Wang and before meeting Jordan had dated Julio Iglesias Jr, brother of pop star Enrique.

The pair like to keep their relationship private and after moving in together in 2009, were engaged two years later.

They tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida in April 2013.

Tiger Wood, Usher and Spike Lee were both in attendance at the bash which was rumoured to have cost more than £8.2million.

Yvette and Jordan have two children together, twins Ysabel and Victoria who were born in 2014.

Why is she not in the Last Dance?

Netflix's documentary has garnered praise from fans the world over for it's insight into the Bulls dynasty which dominated the NBA during the 1990s.

But some fans have been left confused why Yvette doesn't contribute to the series.

As it turns out, director Jason Hehir didn't believe that interviews with Jordan's wife, ex-wife or children would benefit the documentary.

He told The Athletic: "I wasn't interested in the opinion of any wife or kids in this.

"We had the storytellers we wanted and I felt like we had the story covered from every angle."
