Michael Jordan has taken a 30-year mortgage and is playing house in modest suburban Miami with his reported new paramour, Cuban model Yvette Prieto.
According to Miami-Dade County records, Prieto, 30, and Jordan, 46, co-own a three-bedroom home that property-appraisal records list as having three bedrooms and 5,500 square feet.
None of the neighbors called by the Palm Beach Post realized that the six-time NBA champion is on the deed of the two-story villa. Said the sexy-voiced Prieto: "I can't talk about the house just yet. Sorry."
The couple, last spotted together at the NBA All-Star Game, paid $281,000 for it in a down market. They took out a 30-year, $196,000 mortgage. Why did one of the best-paid NBA players take out a mortgage? Probably because Prieto, who's also a mortgage holder, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002. It took her two years to straighten out her finances.
