The NY Post says a 20-page love letter that Michael Jordan once wrote to actress Amy Hunter was recently auctioned off for $25,703. The letter was first sold in 2014 for $2,560. Its value increased because of the ESPN docu-series ”The Last Dance.”

The newspaper claims Jordan allegedly had an affair with Hunter and wrote:  “Amy, sometimes I am the most selfish person on this earth because for one whole year all I thought about was Michael. I admit I made a mistake, but found it difficult to change it. Let’s say I do change the mistake. You would not believe the problems we would encounter. It is unthinkable. We wouldn‘t have a pleasant relationship or a private one. Our business up for opinions by the whole world. This is a pressure I can’t live with. Amy, if I was Michael Jordan, the ordinary man with a 9 to 5 job, then it wouldn’t be hard to admit my mistake. But instead, I am the Michael Jordan who is put on the pedestal and viewed to be the perfect role model. A lot of people, not just kids, but whole families. Can you imagine the responsibilities I have to deal with. Not to mention a baby by a lady who I have loved for 3 1/2 years.”

Toddler Stuck With The Name “Baby Boy”: ABC says a two-year-old Tucson, Arizona boy is stuck with the name “Baby Boy” because his mother took too long to name him. The hospital used “Baby Boy” as a placeholder so the birth certificate could be filed for state records. Baby Boy’s mother, Laela Olague, says she doesn’t want to pay the $500 fee required to change his name. “We wanted to name our son based on what’s at or near his zenith at the hour of his birth and what’s in space when he’s born. I made calls to vital records every few months through my pregnancy to make sure there’s no new legalities that would cause the situation that has happened. I’m paying $500 to name my son and other people don’t have to do that and it’s not right. Because I didn’t name him at one-year-old, he’s now legally named after his birth record. No one told me this would happen after I asked so many times.” Laela wants to change Baby Boy’s name to Perseus.
