Quick Biography

Yvette and her relationships

Yvette was in a relationship with Spanish singer Julio Iglesias Jr. in 2003, but this relationship somehow could not go on to the next level. Julio has moved on and got married in 2012 to Charisse Verhaert. Julio is nothing but praise for his ex. He said:

“I can count on one hand the girls I have dated seriously. Yvette is the third and the third time’s the charm. She’s a fantastic girl and I like her. Aside from her beauty, which is obvious, she is loving, simple and very good person.”

Yvette then met basketball player Michael Jordan in a club in 2008 and Michael who was then a divorcee was immediately attracted to Yvette.

The two started dating and during their courtship, Yvette also got close to his three children with his first wife. Michael was several senior years to her but that did not stop them from going ahead with their romantic involvement. Now that does point to true love!

Michael proposed to her in December 2011 and on 27 April 2013, the two got married in an extravagant ceremony held at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida. In keeping with the fame and wealth of Michael, the wedding was a star-studded one and was attended by popular singers including Usher and Robin.

The couple shares a blissful married life and has twin daughters-Ysabel and Victoria who were born in February 2014.

She has studied business management in her college days but it is not known which college she has attended for this course. As a child, Yvette was charmed by the glamor world and had the ambition to be part of it one day.

Yvette’s career

Before Yvette Prieto met Michael Jordan, Yvette used to work as a model. She did not want to study further but on the request from her parents, Yvette went ahead to get a degree in business management. She then joined her father in his business and started helping him and at the same time learning the tricks of the trade.

After being in this business for some time, it dawned on Yvette that she was not happy with it. She did not have satisfaction with this type of work and decided to try to enter the show business, which she very much admired and liked.

She started her hands first at modeling and after a few assignments, she was able to establish herself in this field. She also did bikini shots for calendars. She was young with a good physique and a beautiful face. She also had the talent and hence soon she became the in-demand fashion girl. She has modeled for the renowned fashion designer Alexander Wang, who is also the former creative director of Balenciaga.

Yvette Prieto has also acted and was seen in the TV Series Documentary ‘Cuba: An Island Apart’.
