Michael Jordan Filed for Divorce



NBA former player, Michael Jordan and his 17-year marriage wife filed for divorce.

Michael Jordan, the retired NBA player and his wife, Juanita, filed for divorce Friday in a Waukegan, Illinois, courthouse after lived apart since February. They are now seeking joint custody of their three teen children, ages 18, 16, and 14.

The Chicago Tribune reported that in papers filed at the Lake County courthouse, the couple said their decision to divorce after 17 years of marriage was mutual and amicable. Court documents cite irreconcilable differences, and say the Jordans have agreed to a settlement on issues including property and debt, child custody and support, and parenting time.

They asked the court to excuse them from attending a required parenting education program class because, they said, their celebrity "would be a disruption to the class" and would create publicity about their personal and private issues.

It's not their first filed for divorce, in January 2002, Juanita Jordan filed for divorce, but withdrew the petition after one month when the couple said they would try to reconcile.
