A rep for Michael Jordan has denied a report from Gossip Extra that claims Jordan is planning to get his vasectomy reversed at the urging of his new wife, Yvette Prieto.
“A source close to Jordan tells me His Airness agreed to undergo a vasectomy reversal at his new wife’s urging,” reports Gossip Extra’s Jose Lambiet.
“That was part of the deal of them getting married,” said a source close to the Charlotte Bobcats, the NBA team owned by Jordan. “Yvette was pretty adamant about having children with Mike. He had the vasectomy as his first marriage ended.”
However, Jordan’s spokeswoman Estee Portnoy denied he had a vasectomy, or reversal. “But she wouldn’t comment on the retired ball player’s future plans when it comes to ninos,” Lambiet reported.
The 50-year-old NBA legend married his longtime girlfriend at Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, then celebrated with a giant party on the golf course of The Bears Club in Jupiter.
Jordan has three adult children with ex-wife Juanita Vanoy: Former University of Central Florida basketball players Jeffrey and Marcus Jordan, 24 and 22; and daughter Jasmine, a Syracuse University student.
