Michael Jordan's Ex-Wife Revealed Shocking Secret: She Wrote $50,000 Checks to Cover His Gambling Debts

Michael Jordan has a well-documented history of gambling, which includes both high-stakes gambling on the golf course and in casinos.

Jordan's gambling habits had a severe financial impact on him and his ex-wife, Juanita Vanoy.

In Roland Lazenby's book "Michael Jordan: The Life," it was revealed that Jordan had a falling out with businessman Richard Esquinas over a massive gambling debt.

Jordan reportedly owed Esquinas between $200,000 and $300,000, which he struggled to pay off.

Juanita Jordan had to write checks to clear some of her husband's gambling debts, including a series of $50,000 checks.

Jordan's gambling escapades have been the subject of many stories, including him staying up all night to win back lost money at a casino and losing $5 million during a game of craps.

Jordan's gambling has also been known to go out of control on the golf course.

Jordan's gambling habits have been criticized by some, including his former coach, Phil Jackson.

Despite his gambling troubles, Jordan remains one of the greatest basketball players of all time and a cultural icon.
