Jasmine Jordan

This week Michael Jordan’s daughter, Jasmine, found herself the subject of lesbian rumors when the gossip site MediaTakeout (MTO) reported she was dating a female classmate at Syracuse: “MediaTakeOut.com spoke with a person IN THE KNOW that tells us that Michael’s daughter is dating a girl named CARMEN. And the Instagram posts – with the hugs and the hearts – seems to CONFIRM those reports.”

The “smoking gun” MTO was waiving around were Instagram photos Jordan posted of herself with Syracuse women’s basketball player Carmen Tyson-Thomas.

Jordan neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, choosing instead to just tweet a friendly message:

“MTO has struck again! Lol but just like the last time, I’m chillin and not bothered. Negativity go to the left and take a seat. No time for that! Everyone have an amazing day!”

On Instagram, though, she posted a note that seemed to suggest she might be bisexual:

”Until Love, Trust, Honesty, Repost, 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.”

Seems like Mike raised himself one classy daughter. 

And if Jasmine should turn out to be lesbian or bisexual, she’d be in good company: Both Isiah Thomas and Magic Johnson’s sons are openly gay.
