Well, of course, the price hits for one second but then you realize, this is MJ we are talking about. The man is used to a lifestyle that is nothing less than extravagant. We’ve seen Jordan having some expensive tastes that have led him to store a plethora of cars, a watch collection, and some may even think this is over the top, but fulfilling his passion for golf by establishing an exclusive golf course.

The couple looked like tourists in the pictures that had fans going gaga over their vacation. And yes, there were also several security guards around them.
