Who is Juanita Vanoy?
Born under the sign of Gemini on the 13th of June 1959, in Chicago, Illinois USA, Juanita Vanoy is a 59-year-old Hispanic model, real-estate agent and executive secretary, but is definitely best known to the world for being the ex-wife of one of the world’s all-time great basketball players, arguably the greatest, Michael Jordan. However, she has had a number of personal successes throughout her sometimes lucrative modeling career since the 1980s.
Early Life and Education
Apparently an only child, Juanita was raised in her birthplace by parents of unknown names and professions. It’s unclear when she took an interest in any of the professions she eventually undertook over the course of her career, including any of her childhood hobbies. The name of her high school is unknown, but she began to do modeling during this part of her education. After her matriculation in 1977, it is unknown whether Juanita furthered her education.
It is reputed that Michael met Juanita at a Chicago Bennigan’s restaurant at some point in 1984, through the help of a mutual friend. They renewed contact at a friend’s party a few weeks later, and began dating from that point on.
On New Year’s Eve of 1987, Michael proposed to Juanita at Nick’s Fish Market in Chicago. Even though Juanita accepted the proposal, they eventually called off their engagement for reasons yet unknown, but then began reconsidering marriage a year later. Soon after, Juanita realized she was pregnant; Jordan was suspicious at this point, and didn’t believe that the child was his, however, he still eventually re-proposed, and they married at short notice – Michael was 26 and Juanita was 30 the day they married on the 2nd of September 1989, at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, and Juanita received a five-carat marquise diamond ring as a token of Michael’s affection on their wedding day. Their first child was already ten months old.
The World’s Most Expensive Divorce
Undeniably, Juanita made her wealth through the divorce from Michael. Their separation is ranked #1 on ‘The 10 Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces’ list by “Forbes”, at a staggering $168 million in her favor, plus a seven-acre estate including mansion in Chicago. Additionally, she was awarded custody of all three children. This is believed to be the most lucrative divorce settlement in history.
Ever since their talk of divorce surfaced in the media, it has been believed that Karla Knafel, the rumored former lover of the basketball legend, was the reason behind it. It was alleged that Jordan paid her $250,000 to stay silent about her relationship with him, while she claimed that Michael is her child’s father, and that he offered her a further $5 million for her silence, however, a DNA test was conducted and Michael proved not to be the father.
What is Juanita Vanoy’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Juanita Vanoy is, as of mid-2018? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Juanita’s accumulated wealth is over $170 million, still adding to it as a real-estate businesswoman, although of course most has come from the divorce settlement. As her career continues to develop, the said amount can be expected to increase.
Concerning the physical attributes of the real-estate expert, her vital statistics, height and weight are unknown; her body shape is generally described as regular, while her hair color is pitch dark and her eyes are dark brown.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active celebrities to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the projects they’re working on, and thus their own net worth. However, it doesn’t look like Juanita cares too much for this celebrity trend, as she keeps a low profile on social media networks – no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts exist in her name.
