It was only a few weeks ago we posted a story about Dennis Rodman shooting up and passing out in some stranger's car, then making her pay his tab. Anyway, now there's word that the ex-NBA great is facing up to 20 days in jail for missing $1million in child and spousal support. As of March 1st, Rodman owed $808,935 in child support for his nine- and ten-year-old kids with his ex-wife, Michelle Moyer. In addition Dennis also owed $51,441 through March 1 in back spousal support.
Dennis Rodman's attorney Linnea Willis wrote in filings on his behalf: 'Respondent Dennis Rodman is broke and cannot afford any additional fees,' adding that he is 'extremely sick'. '...And in all honesty, Dennis, although a very sweet person, is an alcoholic,' Willis writes.
'His sickness impacts his ability to get work. This case, especially his wife filling for divorce, has put him on a binge that I have never seen before. He is extremely hurt and extremely sick. He is often unable to obtain work because of this sickness. And his sickness is getting increasingly worse. Dennis cannot afford his own monthly expenses. If the court awards attorney fees, it is setting Dennis up to be in contempt because you cannot get blood from a turnip.'
Rodman only made $8,000 this year, which is a huge difference from the $570,000 in earnings he claimed at the time his wife filed for divorce. Willis claims Rodman this year has paid more in child support than he's earned; and that he has only been able to pay by borrowing money from his finance manager, Peggy Williams, and his agent, Darren Prince, according to The Daily Record.
