NBA legend Michael Jordan got married over the weekend to model Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach. The bride turned heads in a stunning French silk voile corseted J’Aton Couture gown with handmade silk lace and Swarovski crystals, according to US Weekly.
On hand to perform at the reception were Usher, Robin Thicke, K’Jon, DJ MC Lyte and an 18-piece band called The Source, and guests finished dinner with slices of a seven-layer white rum wedding cake that was decorated with sugar crystals.
But what else do we know about Priesto, this petite beauty? (Well, “petite” compared to Michael Jordan.)
Prieto is a Cuban-American model who was previously romantically inked to singer Julio Iglesias Jr., brother of Enrique Iglesias and son of Julio Sr.
Iglesias said of Prieto in Hola! magazine in 2003 (translated from Spanish), “I can count on one hand the girls I have dated seriously. Yvette is the
third and … the third time’s the charm. She’s a fantastic girl and I
like her. Aside from her beauty, which is obvious, she is loving, simple and very good person.”
Hola! also reports that Prieto studied business and worked for her father’s company before becoming a model. This is her first marriage; it is the second marriage for Jordan.
