The fiancée of basketball legend Michael Jordan has agreed to sign a prenuptial agreement, according to a report in the Daily Mail. Jordan has been engaged to Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto since December 2011.
The agreement will protect the athlete’s $650 million fortune, the newspaper claims. If they divorce Prieto will receive $1 million for each year they were married.
The former Chicago Bulls star divorced first wife Juanita Vanoy in 2006 in what was then one of the biggest divorce payouts in history. The couple had no prenuptial agreement and Vanoy reportedly received a divorce settlement of $168 million.
Jordan, 50, and wife-to-be Prieto, 33, are due to be married on 27 April. The couple appeared at the Palm Beach County Courthouse in Florida to apply for a marriage license on 7 March.
Meanwhile, fellow US sportsman Deion Sanders has heard that his prenuptial agreement will stand in current divorce proceedings from wife Pilar. The court confirmed that both parties signed the prenup and that it is therefore valid.
