Michael & Juanita Jordan's Daughter Comes Out As A Lesbian

Jordan and Vanoy Jordan married in a ten-minute ceremony in Las Vegas in 1989, and signed a post-nuptial agreement a year and a half later. Prior to their marriage, Vanoy Jordan gave birth to the couple's first son, Jeffrey Michael Jordan.

The couple was married for 18 years, which also saw the births of two more children, Marcus James in 1990, and Jasmine Mickael in 1992. Vanoy Jordan filed for divorce in 2002, citing irreconcilable differences, but withdrew the petition before the couple officially called it quits in 2006.

Vanoy, a former model has gone on as a businesswoman, and pulled back from the public eye after her divorce, refusing to pen a tell-all and denying requests to appear on reality-TV.

In Nov. 2013, she spoke out for the first time since her split from the NBA star, talking about her life out of the spotlight and after a $168 million divorce settlement.

"It was important for me to remain in my kids' lives as much as possible, even through college. And that required a lot of time," she said.

During the interview, Vanoy Jordan also revealed that despite she and her basketball player ex still keeping in touch, he had neglected to mention to her that he was getting remarried.

"Mostly our conversations are about the children. I don't remember him saying, 'By the way, I'm getting married," she said. "Divorce was certainly new to me. I had to learn that you have to communicate. That it's not about you or your ex-partner. It's about making sure that the children are all right."
