Yvette was in a relationship with Julio Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias’s older brother Julio Iglesias is known to be the former boyfriend of Yvette. Before she had a romantic connection with MJ, she was dating Gone Country TV series winner Julio Jr. While they were together, in 2003, 43-year-old Julio quoted that Yvette is a wonderful, loving girl, and a very good person. After their separation, Julio too became engaged with 34-year-old Belgian supermodel Charisse Verhaert in 2011 and conducted their marriage ceremony in 2012 in Julio’s home country Spain.

Yes, the retired basketball hunk was married to Juanita Vanoy in 1989 but their marriage didn’t last forever; they filed for a divorce in 2002, significantly due to irreconcilable differences. Vanoy and Jordan have 3 children together, 2 sons and a daughter named Marcus, Jeffrey, and Jasmine.
