As the offspring of basketball legend Michael Jordan, Jasmine Mickael Jordan has lived under the spotlight all her life. Being born to a man with such unmatched talent, a lot is expected from her, perhaps to thread the same path as her father but Jasmine seems to have other plans for her career life. She does share her father’s passion for sports but not in the way the world expects it to be.
Although she is mostly basking in the fame and fortune her father’s illustrious career brought to the family, Jasmine Mickael Jordan has some notable accomplishments of her own. She has also been on the headlines as a result of speculations surrounding her sexuality. More details about her below.
Biography Of Jasmine Mickael Jordan
Just like her mother, she was born in Chicago, Illinois, in the United States, her birth took place on December 7, 1992. She was raised as the last child of her Hall of Fame basketball player father and his first wife alongside two older brothers.
Details of her early educational pursuit are not public knowledge but she studied up to tertiary level. After studying from 2011 to 2014, Jasmine bagged a degree in Sports Management from Syracuse University in New York. Apparently, her choice of course in college is her own way of following in her father’s footsteps.
Not much has been revealed about the actual career Jasmine Mickael Jordan has chosen for herself but it’s already clear she is not going to be shooting hoops like her dad. While she has made it clear that she is very proud of the man who raised her, she is headed to a different direction in her career life.
From what we gathered, she might have a future in fashion designing. She is known for contributing immensely to the success of her father’s famous sneaker collection known as the Jasmine Collection. She didn’t just lend her name to the collection, she equally designed it, putting into consideration, the needs of women.
She also describes herself as an extrovert, a trait that has seen her handling the mic at social events. Jasmine co-hosted some major university level events including the Syracuse basketball team’s Midnight Madness event. She has social media accounts across different platforms like Instagram and Twitter. On the former, she boasts more than 69,000 followers while the latter has over 17,000 followers as of March 2019.
Family Life Of Jasmine Mickael Jordan
Jasmine Mickael Jordan was born to the celebrated, now-retired basketball player Michael Jordan and his first wife, Juanita Vanoy. While her father posted mind-blowing records on the court, her mother strutted her stuff as a model in her heydays. Jasmine is the youngest child of the couple who ended their marriage in 2006 after three children.
From her parents, Jasmine has two older brothers named Jeffrey Jordan and Marcus Jordan. Both brothers have not been able to live up to their father’s legacy as well but they played basketball up to the college level at the University of Central Florida. The two brothers quit their UCF team at different times, citing personal reasons. They are currently pursuing other ventures.
Jasmine also has two younger sisters from her father’s second marriage to model Yvette Prieto. The couple welcomed their twin daughters named Ysabel and Victoria Jordan (jasmine’s half-siblings) in 2014.
Back in 2013, Jasmine Mickael Jordan supposedly fueled speculations about her sexuality through the photos and posts she shared with her thousands of fans on Instagram. In one of her posts, she assumedly revealed her sexual orientation as being a lesbian. This followed her confirmation that she was in a relationship with Syracuse University basketball player, Carmen Tyson-Thomas. Jasmine continued on this path for a while and compounded the situation by refusing to discuss her sexuality in public. As a result, speculations were rife that she likes women exclusively but that claim was soon put to rest when, in 2016, it was revealed that Jasmine is dating a basketball player.
That basketball player who won Jasmine’s heart is Rakeem Christmas. Their relationship took a different turn in June 2018 when they got engaged and in December 2018, the bigger news was shared – they are expecting their first child as a couple!
