Michael Jordan’s Daughter Comes Out, Reveals New Girlfriend On Instagram

JasmineJordan2Not to be outdone by the coming out of Magic Johnson’s too-fabulous gay son in April, fellow basketball star Michael Jordan’s only daughter, Jasmine Jordan, has announced that she is gay in a series of cutesy photos posted to her Instagram account.

On August 29, Jordan posted a photo with Syracuse University basketball star Carmen Tyson-Thomas, and according to some sites, confirmed the two were dating on Twitter. Later that day, she posted the following message after gossip sites began reporting her coming out:

“Until Love, Trust, Honesty, Respect, Loyalty, Commitment, Genuine Happiness and other characteristics or aspects I want in a relationship is defined by one gender then and only then will i discuss my sexual preference.”

Though other sites are quick to point out that Jordan hasn’t confirmed her sexual orientation either way—be it gay or bisexual—the series of photos and her lack of addressing the issue directly is speaking volumes.

Plus, a week before, Jordan posted several photos of herself and her “boo” whom she “loves” on Instagram. So, yeah

Best of luck to the happy couple!

    Fake or not, which one is she?

    @Brian: What difference does it make to you unless you are one of those real bisexuals?

  • MK Ultra

    Good for her. Happy she can be herself.

  • Aric

    She seems so unaffected, level headed, and just mature. Very cute couple and I loved her quote. I could use more people as intelligent and bright as her in my life.

    Oh and for anyone confused she’s the one with long hair.
