DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) The tales of Dennis Rodman’s storied life have yet again taken a twist. According to his agent the former Detroit Pistons star is “broke” and “extremely sick” and can’t pay his child and spousal support payments.

Rodman, 49, faces up to 20 days in jail for failure to pay spousal and child support, according to an attorney of his ex wife featured in the L.A. Times.

Rodman owed $808,935 in back payments for his 9-and 10-year-old kids he had with his third wife. Rodman also owes $51,441 in back spousal report. Ex-wife Michelle Rodman is also looking for attorney fees.

According to Rodman’s attorney, Linnea Willis, Rodman is barely able to to pay for his living expenses. Rodman’s attorney also says Rodman is “extremely sick” and his marketability is diminishing with age and illness, according to court documents.

Rodman played with the Pistons from 1986-1993. While with the Pistons, Rodman won two NBA Championships as well as appearing in the All-Star game in 1990 and 1992. He was the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1989-90 and 1990-91 seasons.

He made waves on and off the court, dating pop superstar Madonna, throwing a parade featuring himself in full makeup and a bridal gown, getting elaborate tattooes and headline-making hairstyles. Most recently, Rodman appeared on the VH1 reality show “Celebrity Rehab” with Dr. Drew in 2009, where he revealed his alcoholism, started recovery and tried to make amends with family. He was also admitted into rehab in 2008 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after a domestic violence charge.

One year ago, Detroit sports fans showed Rodman an outpouring of love when his jersey was retired at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

“I didn’t expect none of this crap. You know it’s like I just expected to play, I didn’t expect to win anything. Just to play is more than anything in the world,” Rodman said at the time.

How can [future] HOFs get so broke? They should be able to make money easily based on their popularity via ads and endorsements.

They get used to the NBA lifestyle and keep living that way even when they are not in the league anymore collecting paychecks or endorsements... Hope he's ok though!

The broke part? Yes

The sick part? No

If the sick part has to do with his known abuse of alcohol, then yes it does.

It most likely is due to alcohol. He was on that Dr.Drew show on TV recovering from that. I bet its really starting to catch up to him now.

Another millionaire athlete who threw it all away. Boo Hoo.


Dude's a complete and total douchebag, so this comes as NO surprise to me.


In fact, im surprised it didnt happen sooner. He used to literally party 24/7 here in Newport Beach and was thoroughly hated in the community for being an A-hole everywhere he went, including resturaunts, bars, ect.

Treat others the way you want to be treated, right?


Well, Karma just came and armbar'd him properlike......and soon it could be much, much worse.

I've actually had a couple of encounters with Rodman. About 15 years ago, I was working at place located on the Empress Casino property in Joliet, IL. Rodman and his entourage came in one night, he was blitzed out of his mind and literaly had money falling out of his pockets. The scumbags in his posse were more than willing to pick it up for him.
The other time was 8-10 years ago in Vegas. He was throwing money around at a craps table, while cash was literaly falling out of his pockets. Again, his posse had no problem picking up after him.

I wonder if the posse is broke, too.

No amount of job can help him pay all that spousal and child support. Our laws are insane.

I really hope God can help him. It's always terrible when someone is in a situation like he is. However some people need to live a life that they enjoy, but at the same time be conservative and think out the future. All these rich athletes that are now broke never think about tomorrow, only the time being, and it ends up backfiring.

ha ha "god" already did him the favor of blessing him with crazy talent to get paid millions of dollars to play a ****ing game. He blows it all on Booz, coke, and who knows what else. Just wastes MILLIONS, not to mention being the biggest selfcentered dick on the planet, and "God" should save him.. I bet that ****er walks around high as a kite poundin down booz all while wearin his cross too. Hahaha I love it. Maybe him and God can rail a couple lines together when he finally kills his liver or self

I love Rodman. I wish him the best and hope things get cleared up. He's a troubled soul and the people around him just seem to suck the life out of him. He needs a better support group. If I prayed, I would pray for him, but I dont, so I'll just feel bad for him.

He should really try to land a gig like Shaq had, I think he'd be more interesting than Shaq.

I swear to God these NBA players have the money management skills of Rick Ross. How star players like Iverson and Rodman run out of money is beyond my comprehension.
