WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – Wedding bells could soon be ringing for basketball legend Michael Jordan.
The former NBA star and Charlotte Bobcats owner appeared at the main Palm Beach County courthouse Thursday morning to apply for a marriage license, according to Kathy Burstein, a spokeswoman for the clerk’s office. Applicants must apply in person and a license is good for 60 days. The identity of the bride-to-be was not immediately announced.
Jordan got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto, in December 2011.
Jordan and Prieto are reportedly set to get hitched on April 27.
It will be the second marriage for No. 23. He married Juanita Vanoy in September 1989, and they divorced in 2006. They have two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine.
