Jasmine Jordan Jordan and Rakeem Christmas

Jasmine Jordan, Michael Jordan's firstborn daughter, is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Rakeem Christmas. The 2 lovebirds announced their engagement on social media over the weekend.

"Happily Engaged," she tweeted under a photo of the couple holding their dogs.

Jasmine and Rakeem have had their ups and downs in the 5 long years they've been together.

He was there for her when she experienced heartbreak after she briefly dated a woman's basketball player at Syracuse University, and she was there for him when his beloved dog died 2 years ago.

Jasmine, 25, graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in sports management. Rakeem was a starter on the Syracuse men's basketball team in 2013 when the Orange advanced to the Final Four in 2013.

Rakeem was drafted in the second round of the NBA draft by the Indiana Pacers in 2015.

He currently plays overseas for the New Zealand Breakers pro team.

In 2013, during her bi-curious phase, Jasmine posted a photo of herself embracing former Syracuse guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas. The photo caption read: “That little closet is holding me back”.

Jasmine is Jordan's only daughter with his ex-wife Juanita.

    I was about to say she the only daughter then I recalled the other two twin girls he had with ole girl.

    Good luck to you Jasmine. Congrats

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Congrats ?

  • Renee26

    Cute couple! Congrats to them ?

  • BingBangBoom

    Can someone say free Jordan's for life. She is the exclusive connect. I hope he loves her and not just her daddy's shoes. Lol

  • Junkanoo

    Some people are straight up by bisexual why is it being sensationalized. My one side eye would be dressing dogs in outfits? it's completely nuts they're not human

  • Gloria

    Her dad is a coon.
    And I think more people have a "bi-curious" phase than what is being admitted.
    Congrats tho!

  • king shun


  • king shun

    how is he a coon?

  • justlooking

    She Loves mensT, she not gay no more.


  • free


  • Ice Lee

    I dunno about a coon, but certified azzhole fits

  • Roxie Moxie

    When you've had the D before, you'll ALWAYS come back. Ain't NOTHING a woman can do for me AT ALL. Plus, I don't like plastic. :-)

    Congrats to her though! For some reason, she's seems hella humble despite the fact that her father is like, the all-time best. I respect her for that. Hope they have a very happy union!

  • Kemi

    Congrats to the newly engaged!

  • SumthinSweeter

    She's Delivert...

  • FukkFolks2018

    Sure does. I am almost sure that I am the person here who dislikes him THEE most lol. But he has done some good. Wont brand him a coon...YET.

  • Kanyade


  • Gloria

    He has had encounters where he would curse out and belittle people, really for no reason. His fans at that. I think the most notable encounter is him cursing out some rapper named chamillionaire just because he asked for a picture. He's only "down" for blacks when it benefits him financially. His team in recent years has pushed him to be more vocal about black issues, to which he finally agreed to. But the self loathing and disregard for others who look like him is evident.

    But maybe he's not even a coon. Just a rich asshole who is mean in general ?????

  • Ice Lee

    My petty ass mean mugs anyone who talks about Jordan's . I'm right there with you ??

  • Roxie Moxie

    Not so much. I am 50/50. While he may not have verbally spoke about issues effecting the black communities (esp the high murder rates over HIS sneakers), he HAS employed minority leaders throughout his many business ventures. As the CEO of his Jordan brand(s), he's employed SEVERAL minority leaders at Nike, in which they were non-existent, prior. So, I can't say he's a coon per se, but he does irk me at times.

    I'm surprise not enough black-lash for LGBT community because one of their people gone to the straight team. Oh it's a woman so they will be silent. I notice if it's a gay man going straight they would have tons of comment for him.

  • Gloria

    I noticed that too. Why is it that a woman can go back to men after being with women so easily but if a man goes back to being with women after dating men, he automatically gets dogged out lol or is still being called “gay” “in the closet” and whatever else? Hmmm. ?

  • Karen Brady

    "and she was there for him when his beloved dog died 2 years ago." Then YES! of course they should be married!!!!!!!

  • Karen Brady

    HIL.A.RI.OUS. I had to break it down this way.

  • Roxie Moxie

    How he acted is pretty much how ALL of the celebrities act (sports or entertainment). They put on facades for the TV but are all a**holes in person, (with a few exceptions). This is why you should never worship nor treat these HUMAN BEINGS like any God or Queen.....they are people who piss and sh*t like you and I. No big deal.

    Shit, the only person I met who was cool as a fan was Mos Def in Manhattan. I saw Lost Boyz (think song Renee; yes, I'm old) they acted like they were above everyone at the airport and I just acted like I didn't know who they were. Celebs HATE that! :-) And will continue to do so.

  • justlooking

    So honest.


  • Roxie Moxie

    I was thinking the SAME That's like saying, "omg! Your favorite color is blue too?!" Let's get married!

    Hopefully, their union is much more deeper than that. lol

  • Karen Brady

    It's Monday.. ya'll can't wait til maybe Wed?

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • justlooking

    Nah, Hey gal

  • Karen Brady

    I love Christmas (the holiday) so I am sooooooooo happy that his name is Christmas. That's all I have. Happy Monday ya'll.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Karen Brady

    Thank you!!! And so do I... we know Auntie likes to mess with us :-)

  • Karen Brady

    Lol!! Hey luv!

  • AmericanDream

    His last name is really Christmas or he’s just looking for a heiress to make his Christmas less stressful . Also wasn’t she a lesbian or something ? Congrats though !

  • Neva RuthLess

    She’s probably bisexual but prefers men. Not a big deal.

  • Ghost

    Congratulations!! That’s all I’ve got...

  • RaginB

    Speaking of being delivert! Can u do a post on Andrew Caldwell’s Facebook live video??

  • Roxie Moxie

    Signed, sealed,

  • Roxie Moxie

    That she does! lol Your comment still has me

  • Roxie Moxie

    Well, because there isn't any "real" penetration. Women use toys to replace the male penis, in which, it can be cleaned off and tossed into a drawer. Men, on the other hand, are REALLY getting penetrated by the REAL thing, which can carry many diseases and such.

    I would not date a man who had a gay encounter. I just can't. I won't be able to look at him the same and will always wonder, if when he's hittin' from the back, is he thinking about a male butt hole. Just my 2 cents. lol

  • Readytochokemothernatureout


  • SumthinSweeter

    Lmboooo....See now I got another old school throwback in my head. *tunes into to Stevie.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile, if they decide to marry, their marriage gonna last shorter than their years together. Rakeem got to worry about her being attractive to not only men but wimmen as well. This relationship is already a mess. Good luck though.

  • Roxie Moxie

    That was JUST what I was singing too. LOL

  • Alexis Carson

    Thats what I said. I'm just glad she is with a man. I bet Mike pulled her to the side and was like don't be like EJ and embarrass this family, or my name LOL

  • GrapeCrush

    Congrats to them! Very good looking couple too!

  • Bashi22

    really silly excuse

  • Roxie Moxie

    Doesn't he look like ole boy that was around Whitney and Bobbi Christina? What was his name again? At quick glance....but then I was like, "nah, his brows are basic". lol

  • Toni Toni Toni

    CHILE, I watched that video where he tried to convince us that MING LESS and Him had a REAL THING. Pwahaha. Was the most oddest 4 minutes of my life. He was pursing his lips out like a female and throwing his head back like a female when she was kissing on his neck. And him SAYING STOP CALLING ME SIS evry 20 seconds. Haha. he is something else. WEIRDO

  • Jorjapeach


  • Roxie Moxie

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm literally crying!!!

    Somebody commented on the video, "Stop callin me STHITH". lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aw, lawd......hahahahahahaha

  • Roxie Moxie

    LMAO!!!!! I could not remember his name for NOTHING! Thank you ma'am! I need to watch this video for a quick

  • IamAllnatural

    Chile please, he’s just trying to get free Jordans for life. If my father was rich like MJ, I ain’t marrying nobody!

  • BadAss Will

    People love playing in 2 sand boxes..

  • Misslaydj

  • KLo

  • SummerBaby


  • Quitedeliteful

    Congrats to this cute couple. I wonder if she'll invite her ex-girlfriend to the wedding...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It! SUMMERRRR!!!!!!!!!!! hey Shug!
    I promise you, i thought of you this weekend when i was running to the store. i remembered how you made me realize i was basic when you mentioned your "weekend earrings" i have some, and i felt good about myself when i reached for them.... ROFL!!!!!!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I don't think he's too worried. A lot of women dabble in the "lady pond" before they ended up marrying a man. And i'd say the vast majority of them stay faithful to their man.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. If it was a dude, they'd be saying he's "lying to himself", "living a lie" etc. The LBGTQxyz crowd is harder on the men that cross back to the straight side than they are on the women.

  • pecancandy

    Please no, I can’t take it. Like legit tears come to my eyes when I look at him

  • abby500

    I don’t get coon from MJ.

  • Lady Elle


  • Rhondalousey

    The dog is the highlight of the picture. He's so cute.

  • Logan Roberts

    Girl I had to read that part twice

  • Logan Roberts

    Does this really need explaining?

  • Logan Roberts

    People can't really be this clueless ?

  • Logan Roberts

    He probably said the magic word: Trust fund.

  • Logan Roberts

    Jasmine Jordan Christmas? Nope.

  • Gloria

    You can't can't really be this ignorant? Lol it's clearly a double standard in our society.

  • Logan Roberts

    Sweetheart I'm not about to go back & forth with you on this topic. If you don't see anything wrong with putting shitty dack inside your vagina, who am I to say otherwise. Good day ma'am ?.

  • Gloria

    You definitely tried and failed. We are talking about society's double standards with bisexual men and women, not my choice in whom I personally choose to bed. Bye internet troll! lol

  • Victor Nathan

    until she is lonely and moody

  • Shuntel Marina


  • Raquelle Dellaghetto
  • Bashi22

    Exactly they so too face

  • Bashi22

    Exactly I need somone from the community to explain this

  • Roxie Moxie

    Apparently so. Lol Everyone has their double standards and some you just gotta live with. Men can have sex with multiple women and he's treated very differently than if a woman were to do the same and have multiple male partners. A double standard that might seem unfair to some, but I'd expect a man to have had more women than I've had men. But you get me tho. Lol

  • Roxie Moxie

    LEGIT tears. ?
