NBA superstar Michael Jordan and his wife Juanita.
Michael Jordan and his wife, Juanita, filed for divorce Friday after 17 years of marriage.
"Michael and Juanita Jordan mutually and amicably decided to end their 17 year marriage," the couple said in a statement issued through the lawyers. "A judgment for dissolution of their marriage was entered today."
Juanita Jordan previously filed for divorce in January 2002, but withdrew herpetitiona month later when the couple announced they were attempting a reconciliation.
During her last divorce petition, Juanita said attempts to reconcile their marriage had failed and future ones "would be impractical and notin the best interests ofthe family."
The couple met at a Chicago restaurant during his second season with the Bulls and were married Sept. 2, 1989, in Las Vegas. They have three children: Jeffrey, Marcus and Jasmine.
The 43-year-old Jordan, a part-owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, led the Bulls to six NBA titles and was a five-time league MVP. He lives in Highland Park, Ill.
