At that time, he admitted that he paid Karla Knafel US$ 250 thousand to maintain the confidentiality of the relationship. Knafel said Jordan called his marriage a "business relationship". Hearing this, Juanita immediately filed for divorce and asked for half of her total wealth which was said to reach US$ 400 million (around Rp. 3.6 trillion). Juanita also demanded ownership of a luxury house and custody of the three children. Jordan then worked hard to save the ark of his household. A month later, Juanita dropped her lawsuit.
