Michael Jordan and Wife to Divorce

So there was a reason why Michael Jordan was hitting on the pretty ladies last week when he was in New York. He and his wife of 17 years, Juanita, are calling it quits. Or maybe they're calling it quits because he was hitting on the pretty ladies. Either way, they're done.

According to a statement issued through their lawyer, Juanita and Michael have "mutually and amicably decided to end their 17-year marriage. A judgment for dissolution of their marriage was entered today. There will be no further statements."

As I said, this is the second time they have announced they were divorcing. In 2002, Juanita filed citing "irreconcilable differences," but withdrew her petition weeks later when they announced they were trying to a reconcile.

Oh, and I love how they released this on a Friday night before a long holiday weekend. (Flashback to Nick and Jessica – Thanksgiving 2005.) Again, that's the typical celeb move so that the shock of it will be over on Tuesday when all the entertainment writers are back at work. But this is the Internet age, fools. We're on the case 24/7.

Also I should add that Michael has a reputation of playing around on the wifey for years. Now he can play all he wants.
