Michael Jordan’s High School Sweetheart Intends To File Lawsuit Over Love Letter
Litigation over love (or lack thereof) seems to be the theme of the week, as it now appears the recipient of Michael Jordan's widely-circulated handwritten love letter intends to take legal action against whoever sold the two-page document for $5,100.66 in December 2004.
According to Jordan's high school sweetheart Laquetta Robinson, she thought the note was in her possession, and was surprised to see it broadcasted on television for all the world to see.
"That was between him and me. Not anyone else. It wasn't for anyone else to have knowledge of it. That's something he wrote to me, at that time, out of his heart."
The letter isn't the only item that's unaccounted for, as Robinson said that over the years several possessions, including an original Jordan jersey and photos of the two, have gone missing. She suspects family members are guilty, and that one of them sold the note to the auction house, which we have to admit is pretty screwed up.
More than anything, it seems Robinson just doesn't want MJ to think she's a fame-seeking, money-grubbing bitter ex:
"I wouldn't want Michael to think that I did it cause I wouldn't want him to think that I would betray him in this way."
Hypothetical scenario: say it was Jordan who purchased the letter in the fist place. Now that would make for a good twist.
