WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Basketball legend Michael Jordan appears ready to get married again.
The former NBA star and Charlotte Bobcats owner and his fiancée appeared at the main Palm Beach County courthouse Thursday morning to apply for a marriage license. That’s according to Kathy Burstein, a spokeswoman for the clerk’s office. Jordan got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto, in December 2011.
They have until May 9 to use their marriage license.
