The adorable love letter Michael Jordan wrote to his high school sweetheart, Laquetta Robinson, is probably going to end up in a lawsuit. Ah, American love.
Jordan penned the apologetic, flattering note in perfect cursive and not-as-perfect spelling and left it for Robinson about 30 years ago, and she kept it in storage, never intending for it to go public. Somehow, though, the letter was sold in December 2004 for $5,100.66.
"That was between him and me," Robinson told WTVD. "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."
Robinson said that over the years, a few items — namely an original Jordan jersey and photos of the two — have gone missing, and she suspects family members of lifting them from her home. She says she'll take legal action against whoever sold off the letter, and she wants her high school love to know that she didn't do him wrong:
It was mine, it was personal, it was private... More than anything, 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.
There's only one way to set the record straight, and it must begin, How are you and your family doing, fine I hope. This time around, an email should cover it.
