This is sad. Not surprising…but sad nonetheless.
In court papers regarding child support payments, his own attorney describes Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman as broke and extremely sick. Dennis Rodman’s attorney, Linnea Willis, said in court documents that the former Laker/Bull is barely capable of paying for his living expenses, let alone the $5,000 he has for one child from another relationship, and the $4,500 monthly payment for spousal and child support to Michelle Rodman….
“Respondent Dennis Rodman is broke and cannot afford any additional fees. He is “extremely sick” and his marketability is diminishing with age and illness.” – according to court documents.
No doubt, the saddest part of this mess is his children and Rodman could end up spending 20 days in prison for being $808,935 behind in his child support.
Rodman won five rings total between the Pistons and Bulls, plus played for the Spurs and Lakers. He is one of the best rebounders ever to play the game, plus he was a lock-down defender (especially early in his career). To hear about his current state of affairs is kind of depressing. We hope and wish Rodman all the best and hopefully he can pull through.
