Michael Jordan very rarely makes public appearances. Since his retirement from basketball in 2003, Jordan has made an effort to live a secluded lifestyle. Anytime Jordan makes a public appearance it becomes noteworthy, with fans consistently trying to catch a glimpse of ‘His Airness’.
Jordan’s income thanks to his basketball career and Jordan’s shoe brand has allowed him to live a lavish, yet private lifestyle. His decision to live a secluded life has only contributed to his magical aura.
So Jordan is able to stay away from the media and limelight. Other than appearances at Charlotte Hornets basketball games, Jordan is often away from the spotlight. So when fans are able to find Jordan in an open setting, it immediately becomes a noteworthy event.
And that’s exactly what happened when fans caught Michael Jordan trying to vacation in Croatia. Jordan touched down in Split, Croatia, with his wife Yvette Prieto, where he boarded a lavish yacht for a vacation at the West Coast Riva.
Jordan was seen on the yacht in multiple pictures, a few in which he was sporting a cigar. Jordan has spoken and shown in the past his enthusiasm for cigars, so it is no surprise that he was seen smoking one during the trip.
The yacht, known as the O’Pari is reportedly costing him $1.2 million a week to rent, and that is where he is staying during his time in Croatia.
