Woman says she didn't sell Jordan's love letter
GOLDSBORO (WTVD) -- A local woman who received a love letter from Michael Jordan is demanding answers.
She wants to know how someone got their hands on a high school love note and made thousands of dollars.
"I see my letter and I'm thinking, what in the world?" Laquetta Robinson asked.
She says her high school sweetheart, Jordan, wrote the letter to her nearly 30 years ago. She says she thought the letter was in her possession.
"That was between him and me," she said. "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." So, you can imagine her surprise when she saw the two-page document on television Friday.
"I could see my dearest Laquetta written on the top line," she said
Her romance with a teenaged Jordan was out in the open for everyone to read.
"First I was in shock, I mean, I was trying to figure out where it came from," Robinson added.
According to Lelands.com, a sports auction house, the love note and a picture of Robinson and Jordan dressed up for prom is now in the hands of someone else. Someone, who paid thousands of dollars, for the items in December 2004.
Robinson says she never knew the letter was missing and now she fears there could be more items that are unaccounted for.
"In the course of the time of our courtship, I've had a jersey that's missing," Robinson said. "I don't know where it is. I've had pictures that are missing."
She suspects a family member took the letter and sold it to the auction house.
"It was mine, it was personal, it was private," Robinson added. "And for them to take something that belonged to me and to capitalize off of it, without my knowledge, without my permission, it really upsets me."
That's why she's vowing to take legal action against the person who stole the items, but first she wants to set the record straight with Jordan.
"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," Robinson continued.
