Michael Jordan is a year away from moving into his new Jupiter home and his neighbors are already up in arms!

A source inside the ultra-exclusive The Bears Club, a golf development built by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, tells Gossip Extra that the 6-time NBA champ isn’t following proper etiquette on the development’s pristine course.

Jordan is building a 37,000-square-foot place at the Club. Contractors are about to install the electrical system and his Airness could be landing at the $8-million homestead by the end of 2012.

Thing is, some people aren’t looking forward to it.

“I don’t know which is worse,” the source said. “The half-smoked cigars in the grass or the fact he rarely plays without a posse. I’ve seen him out there with 10 people and they’re hooting and hollering. The point of living in this place is that it’s quiet. The residents are seething but there isn’t much they can do about it.

Said Estee Portnoy, Jordan’s spokeswoman: “I’m sure that’s one man’s opinion. Michael is a true gentleman. He is looking forward to being a resident of the The Bears Club and abiding by the rules. Tell the residents not to worry!”

    as an african american of whom moved to southern ga., from south florida-i can relate to the neighbors. in the past year a family w/43 grand kids moved next door and i’ve had to call the police 6 times. i’m now considering legal redress, to obtain a privacy fence, security fence, security doors, and upgrade my alarm system. at the next level have them, their landlord, & the city buy my home….

      Not all of us are like these ungrateful children. I take my education seriously, because i have parents and grandparents who taught me to appreciate respect,
      education and manners. (I thank God, that i came out right). I can’t say for sure if Jordan is disrupting the peaceful neighborhood but if he is he needs a slap to the forehead. A good community is a priviledge, not a right.

      • mrs. a says

        Thats right Bill..Folks need to stop whining and mind their business. I wish Michael would call me to one of his get togethers…for real.

    Why don’t people just come out and really say why they don’t want MJ living there? The average person living in Jupiter, Fl is white, wealthy and Jewish. They don’t want a bro moving into their neighborhood. Well, too damn bad! I only wish he would have purchased several lots and homes and had a lot of his buddies move in. Tarheel Fan true and blue!

  4. Hillside says

    What a shame that no one along the way taught MJ to be a good considerate neightbor. This is not about race. It is about civility, and following the rules of a gentleman’s game. Give these “inconsiderate behaviors” any excuse you want to justify their appropriateness, however, those with proper upbringing who want to set a “positive example” for future generations know otherwise – regardless of race or any other justification. Just think of how your parents ranted about the bad behaviors of the younger generation — Does MJ really set an example for future generations to emulate? I think not. Only those spinning downward in the cicility arena think so – not those that want to see world as a better kinder place for mankind. Shame on MJ – if it is true. He was once one of my idols. He has let himself down as much as his fan follwers.

    • mrs. a says

      Like I said..his place is 37,000 square feet. If one is complaining about the ongoings at his place I say that one is jus absolutely NOSY…If hes not disrespecting no one elses property, what in the world anyone got to do with what he does on his own land? SMH people jus wnna complain…Stop whining and mind ur own business…

    • lovesdos says

      who says he is not a good considerate. maybe you. if he is a problem and you have first-hand knowledge of this, say so

    • dubg says

      You admit that the claims are unsubstantiated, yet you say he was once one of your idols and is letting people down…..a lil presumptuous aren’t you? You think a former co-captain of the ryder cup team doesn’t respect the game…..Com’ on Man!!!!

    • anon says

      MJ has lived in better places and nobody has ever complained aboout him. Infact when chicago media asked his neighbors in the north shore all they said was mj and his family were very quiet. Only saw them come and go.

  5. Angela says

    Since we’ve only heard one side of the story, we have no way of knowing the accuracy of the statements. Assuming they are true, however, may I suggest installing ashtrays in the golf carts or have them along the golf course (even numbered holes, for example, or if that’s too many, perhaps the 9th and 18th holes. I would guess that IF the cigar butts are being thrown in the grass, it’s because they are no ashtrays readily available. Now, as far as the “posse” is concerned—first of all, why are his friends referred to as posse??? Whether these are family members, friends or business associates, it shouldn’t bother the neighbors for him to have them join him on the course. As far as “hooting and hollering”—isn’t that what golfers/fans do following great shots? At least, that’s what they do in the PGA and no one seems to have a problem with it. Maybe, we should consider the source and the intent of the persons making the complaints.

  6. Hillside says

    I repeat; it all goes to the subject of whether this individual is being considerate or not. Why should a golf course go to extra effort and expense to accomodate this person who seems rather arrogant for failing to dispose his trash properly? MJ could carry his own makeshift ashtry of some sort. And … no one is complaining about noise at tourment play .. this noise and audience that occurs during a routine round of play. Go and read the International Rules of Golf … noise is to be kept to a minimum on any USPGA course. The neighbors and fellow players have a right to express dissatisfaction about the rucus any individual is causing that is disruptive. Note: No one is saying MJ is not welcome to play rather they are saying they expect MJ like other club members to follow proper decurum and rules of conduct on the Club course. Plain and simple.

      • Leslie says

        PINK SWEATER? NO THOSE ARE GIVEN TO CANDIED ASS BIT—S LIKE YOU AND YOUR sweet sweet BUDDY!!! SO WHO’S BENDING WHO OVER TONITE ?! LMFAO!! HE’S RICH BITCH!!

    • lovesdos says

      see my reply to your first comment. you know for a fact that he leaves cigar butts all over the course. by the way you write well but my opinion of your intellegence goes way down if you belive all the gossip you read, in fact if you believe everything you read, especially on the internet

  7. Sylvia says

    Leave Michael Alone you Bastards!!! You weren’t having a problem when he was packing the stadiums all around America! To all the haters you can kiss MJ’s wealthy black ass!!!

  8. mrs. a says

    I say MJ has earned his right to do what the heck he wants on his dam land. People jus need to mind their business. If what he does doesnt affect you then move on to ur own business. Its a shame that if u move into a certain area u have to walk on egg shells because of what others think. its his money and his place..turn ur faces the other way if u dont like what u see on his property. Your nosy asses shouldnt be looking and trying to see whats goin on with him anyway.

    • jimdandy says

      Maybe you need to take a reading comprehension course. He has not moved in yet…the problem is his posse following him around on the community owned golf course. There is a dress code and rules to be followed there. Let him buy his own course, if he wants to break the rules.

  9. walter lewis says

    party hard jordan, the man made his money..let him party with it. the only ones who want to complain is missing their own life pass by.

    Jupiter exists because there’s no room in Palm Beach or Hobe Sound for those who wish to be part of that particular local culture. Michael Jordan has the money to be there, but not the upbringing, and especially not the manners. When my father observed the sometimes bizarre behaviors of lower class people, obviously outside of their realms, he would chuckle, and feeling a bit sorry for them, say “They just don’t know any better.” The ladies at the Hobe Sound Country Club take the wives of new neighbors to lunch, and when they conclude that the newcomer won’t fit in and would be better off back where she came from, they send a her a pink sweater! Jordan may become a member of the Bears Den by virtue of his new home on the property, but he will never BELONG there. After all, he’s just a negro with a lot of money. This all reminds me of when “Mr. T.” bought a house among the lovely, old, wooded estates in Lake Forrest, Illinois, and chopped all the trees down so folks could see the size of his mansion!

    • lovesdos says

      gee, your father was, according to you, upper class, we have your word on that, wow, two upper class in a row, the only problem is that what you wrote lacks class and since i only have your word that your father was upper class, i have to wonder about both of you, i know about you, pax

  11. lovesdos says

    another non-story, i have no idea of what the truth is but since this is gossip extra we do not know if this is made-up by a gossip reporter, a local biget, a not local bigot, a collection of bigits or someone with a real complant. my vote is for a made-up story by a reporter who is also a bigat with little or no money

  12. lovesdos says

    some of the homes in the picture look pretty small, that what mj gets for building a big house in a low class neighborhood

  13. RLM says

    Maybe that’s the problem his house is bigger then his neighbors. Small dogs do bark louder and try to bite when they are looked over by the BIG dogs !! LOL

  14. dee says

    too all you racist ass white folks kiss MJ ass he can do whatver he wants to he made you white folks millions

    • Leslie says

      THEY DON’T QUALIFY TO KISS HIS ASS, BUT MAYBE THEY MOMMA CAN SUCK HIS BIG BLACK D___!!! LOL LMFAO!!!!

  15. Leslie says

    Racism still exists as well as jealousy. To me, this issue deals with both.Michael can do whatever the hell he pleases to do. If they do not like that he is moving there, then leave. How in the hell can you make complaints about someone that has not even moved in yet? That’s ridiculous! You racist, stuck-up mfs and mind your own business!!!

    • Michael says

      You’re an idiot. If someone was blatantly calling a black person the ‘n’ word in front of you and someone was racist would you turn the the person calling them racist and tell them not to go there?

      • tonioh says

        @michael you don’t get bc you never been black in a predominant white world look @ all the hell razing charlie sheen has done. And never hear his neighbour complaining, yes they said he’s idot that’s just o charly. But what da hell they have ask him to leave, and I am sure he want have any problem building a home in jupitar-fl. But mj is a nigger no matter what he does in the side of racist white america, bc all american who are caucasian are racist on they that are white and not american. The difference between nigger word as to how white people use it almost always imply bigutry and offensive toward black and. Latino people too as being benneath them no matter who much fame or money we attain to. When we speak of white people being racist it is in defence of them thinkings, saying or demonstrating that no matter how far we attain or how low we are at the end of the day we suppose to follow their rules completly and not enjoy our culture in this usa just pretend to have a cigar stuck up our a**/ *le, instead of smoking it like mj is doin. So there is the difference you call us nigger no matter if we are rich or poor, bc you always have. We only jus americans when its convient for you, so when we call you white jealous racist is because that is what you force us to do. And we need not your approval of where we can live we hae the money. And think about it how can you see all that mj is doin. He is not lookin @ your da* swingers club bouncing in prestine swiming pools doin da nasty in da* hot tubs, and some of those peolple who call themselves wealthy came from same roots as mj, ok period!!!!!! So stop hatin and go drink some da* leche putas!!!!

  16. connie says

    hi mike just come back here to ral dur area makeall noise you want with john lucas class hillside 72/73 we would love to have you here.

  17. anon says

    This source sounds very racist to me. If a respectable white icon were building a home and playing glof with his buddies will neighbours have a problem with that? I highly doubt it. MJ has spent more than half his life living in wealthy communities. some even wealthier than Jupiter. They should be thankful to have such an icon leaving near them but their racist views wont let them. The source should identfy himself.

  18. FE says

    Prejudice and Racism fuels this complaint. If Michael Jordan was a white man, this wouldn’t be an issue.

  19. Richard says

    Nice pad, im not sure with that much land how anyone can be close enough to hear him and his boys, but ninjas are known for making a bunch of noise wherever we go. I aint lived in a neighborhood yet with a small percentage of ninjas where it isnt loud. Just goes to show old saying about taking the ninja out the hood is very true…….
