NBA legend Michael Jordan is set to tie the knot with Cuban-American model fiancée Yvette Prieto.
Michael Jordan, 50, appeared at the main Palm Beach County courthouse in Florida on Thursday morning to apply for a marriage licence, according to Kathy Burstein, a spokeswoman for the clerk’s office.
Applicants must apply in person and a licence is good for 60 days.
Michael Jordan got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, 33-year-old Yvette Prieto, in December 2011.
Yvette Prieto began dating in 2008 and live together in a modest three bedroom home in Florida.
She has modeled for designers such as Alexander Wang and once dated Julio Iglesias Jr., Enrique’s older brother.
It will be the second marriage for Michael Jordan. He married Juanita Vanoy in September 1989, and they split in 2006.
The end of the 17-year-marriage resulted in one of the most expensive divorce in history, costing him over $150 million in the settlement.
They have two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine.
Michael Jordan’s application for a marriage license comes just days after he asked a Georgia court to dismiss a paternity suit against him, calling it a “shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system”.
