Michael Jordan, wife file for divorce
Michael Jordan and his wife filed for divorce after 17 years of marriage.
His wife Juanita Jordan previously filed for divorce in 2002. But she withdrew her petition later when the couple announced they were attempting reconciliation.
During her last divorce petition, Juanita said the reconciliation had failed and future ones "would be impractical and not in the best interests of the family."
The couple met at a Chicago restaurant and got married in Las Vegas in 1989.
