According to reports, the marriage license is good for 60 days after the application. That sorts of dates a wedding for Jordan and Prieto, although an exact date has not been announced. Despite this, TMZ said that they have information saying that the couple plan to wed on April 27, within the 60 day window.
Jordan, 50, and Prieto, 33, began dating in 2008. They were engaged on Christmas Eve, 2011, according to his Wikipedia article. This marriage will be Jordan’s second. He wed his first wife, Juanita Vanoy, in September of 1989. She received a $168 million divorce settlement when their 17-year marriage ended in 2006. They have three children, Jeffrey Michael, Marcus James and Jasmine.
Given the filing for a marriage license, it appears that Prieto is unfazed by the recent paternity lawsuit filed against Jordan.
Last week it was reported that a woman named Pamela Smith had filed a paternity lawsuit in Fulton County, Ga., in an attempt to establish the NBA Hall of Fame member as the father of her son, Grant Pierce Jay Jordan Reynolds. Also known as Taj, her son was born in June of 1996, when Jordan was still married to Vanoy.
Jordan and his legal team have vehemently denied the claim.
Notably, a video showing Taj (embedded) was uploaded to YouTube on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2012 by "Taj JordanTV," presumably Taj himself. Titled "Taj Jordan (Michael Jordan's Secret Son," it had only garnered about 63,500 hits by the time the news about the suit went public.
With the publicity involved, it went viral. The video has now accumulated over 478,000 hits. It's unclear how Smith will respond to Jordan's filing, and there have been no Jordan related updates to Taj JordanTV's video channel.
