NBA superstar Michael Jordan and his wife
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 her petition
a 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 not in the best interests
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.点击查看更多双语新闻
