NBA Second GOAT Michael Jordan relaxes on Italy vacation with wife Yvette Prieto – after Larsa Pippen said she was ‘traumatized’ by the NBA icon

NBA legend Michael Jordan and his wife Yvette Prieto are still basking in the Italian heat.

The 60-year-old was observed on Tuesday smoking a cigar on a yacht off the coast of Capri while vacationing with his family in Europe.

Although Jordan and Prieto, 44, prefer to maintain a low profile, they were recently spotted in Sicily with their twin girls. Three years after they first met in a Miami nightclub in 2008, Jordan proposed to the model with Cuban ancestry. They got married in 2013 and had their kids, who are now nine, a year later.

When asked last week as he was leaving a restaurant in Paris if he was in support of the relationship, Jordan responded, “No!” with a giggle.

Larsa responded to Jordan’s remark in a new episode of Marcus and Larsa’s podcast Separation Anxiety.

Larsa ‘didn’t think it was humorous’ and appeared perplexed that Marcus found the scenario amusing.

Marcus said, “Everyone in my family is competitive. The Jordans, you know, talking  is kind of in our DNA. And it motivates us. We become driven by it.

Marcus added waggishly that his father might have been “a little lit” from tequila the night of his viral jab at Larsa at the Parisian eatery Matignon.

Larsa claimed she was ‘traumatized’ by the idea of people thinking she was ‘lying’ when she indicated her and Marcus’ family were ‘happy’ with the relationship.

But I do realize that since it’s just the two of us, it’s not difficult for us to be together, but it probably is for my ex and your dad, she said.

Although she stated that neither she nor Marcus had anything to do with the animosity between Jordan and Pippen, she did admit that “for them it probably is weird” and that she “can’t be mαd” at Jordan for his private feelings. Pippen and Jordan were legendary teammates with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s, winning six NBA championships together between 1991 and 1998. However, their interpersonal conflicts were reveαled in the well-liked docuseries The Last Dance.

Pippen added fuel to the fire by criticizing his representation on the program and complaining that he “was nothing more than a prop.”

Jordan allegedly performed The Last Dance solely to prove to the world that he is “still larger than LeBron James,” according to Pippen.

After 13 years as the owner of the NBA franchise, Jordan has recently been in the news due to rᴜmours that he is selling his majority ownership in the Charlotte Hornets for a staggering $3 billion.
