Unlike many celebrity athletes, Charles is a very closed person and tries to keep his family away from the media attention as much as possible. So, there are no details about the family. However, some sources claim that the family lives in a mansion based in Arizona which they own since the late 90's.

Likewise, there also have been no rumors about Charles and Maureen splitting or getting a divorce which is a very good news. The couple has been married for the past 28 years and yet are away from conflicts of divorce in their relationship.

As mentioned above, despite the glitz and glamor of being a star basketball player, and now a TV personality, he is a very private person. The best friend of Michael Jordan has very little to share with the world when it comes to his personal life.
