About Juanita Jordan
Juanita Jordan (nee Juanita Vanoy) is a former model who was born in Chicago. Her net worth currently stands at an impressive $170 million. She has worked as a model and as a secretary for the American Bar Association for many years. In 1984, she started dating the basketball player Michael Jordan, and they got engaged in 1987. It was reported that the couple first met at a restaurant. However, they broke off the engagement after a few days, but finally married in 1989.
The couple has 3 children – two daughters and a son. The marriage, however, did not last. They filed for divorce in 2002, after staying together for 17 years. Both Juanita and Michael, even after the divorce, tried their best to reconcile. However, the couple decided to separate their ways amicably in 2006. As a result of the divorce, Juniata had received a whopping $168 million as part of the divorce settlement. It was one of the most expensive celebrity divorce settlements of that time.
Juanita has been the chairman and co-founder with Michael for the “Michael and Juanita Jordan Endowment Fund”. She has also tried her hands in the real estate business. She has been known to avoid the press and is one of the most down-to-earth people. She has never allowed all the money to go to her head. However, she did spend a whooping $5 million for an 8,000-square feet penthouse.
Juniata was in the headline again when her daughter started going to college while her ex-husband got engaged for the second time and married Yvette Prieto with whom they have a twin.
