The daughter of NBA basketball legend Michael Jordan, has come out as gay by posting a picture of her and her girlfriend on Instagram.

On 29 August, Jordan’s only daughter Jasmine, 20, posted a photograph of herself and girlfriend Tyson-Thomas on the site with the caption: “This Little Closet Is Holding Me Back.”

Responding to users’ questions on whether or not she was gay, she confirmed that it is true.

Jasmine’s girlfriend is a former Syracuse Orange basketball star..

She previously wrote: “Until love, trust, honesty, respect, 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.”
