Like Father? Michael Jordon’s Underage Son, Marcus Being Investigated By Nevada Gaming Control Board For Spending $35,000 In 1 Night At Las Vegas Nightclub


If you’ve ever worried about what your child is posting on Twitter, be thankful your last name isn’t Jordan.

Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting that the Nevada Gaming Control Board is investigating Marcus Jordan, the underage son of hoops legend Michael Jordan, for tweets he made about a wild night at a Vegas nightclub.

Marcus, a 19-year-old sophomore guard for Central Florida, tweeted that he spent $35,000 in one evening at Haze, a nightclub at the Aria Hotel and Casino.


Marcus was in town for his father’s fantasy camp. He spoke for the first time about the tweet (which was later removed from his Twitter account), telling FOXSports.com senior college basketball writer Jeff Goodman on Wednesday that he made a “mistake.

I didn’t mean it the way it came across,” Marcus Jordan said then. “My family and friends know the type of person I am.”

However, the tweet did prompt a phone call from both Michael Jordan and his ex-wife, Juanita.

I had conversations with both my parents,” Marcus added.

As for his allowance?

I’m still good,” he laughed.

Clarke tweeted on Friday that “The Nevada Gaming Control Board just confirmed to me it was contacted by MGM International RE Michael jordan’s underage son.”

 


He continued in a later post: “Board member Randall Sayre said MGM Intl is in the early stages of an inquiry to see ‘where the system broke down.’”
