Juanita Vanoy Jordan is best known as the former wife of NBA basketball legend Michael Jordan. A former model and executive secretary for the American Bar Association, she had established herself as a go-getter with a determined attitude before she met her ex-husband. She was not, however, anticipating their very public divorce and how much attention it would bring to the life she had tried so hard to keep out of the spotlight.
Juanita Vanoy’s Married Life and Divorce with Michael Jordan
Juanita met Michael in a restaurant in Chicago, apparently introduced to him by a mutual friend. The two began dating in 1984 and after being together for several years, they became engaged in 1987.
The pair married in Las Vegas in September 1989. After almost 20 years together, the couple split in 2002, though attempted to reconcile for the sake of their three children. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough, and they filed for divorce in 2006, citing irreconcilable differences. Although Juanita Vanoy Jordan and her former husband have remained on good terms, there were many rumors circulating that the cause of their divorce was due to Michael Jordan’s serial cheating and drug use, but these rumors are largely unproven. The couples’ incredibly public divorce was made even more so by the $168 million Juanita received as part of the settlement, which at the time was among the most expensive celebrity divorces. She also received a large estate and custody of their three children.
