Dennis Rodman Reportedly ‘Broke’ And ‘Sick’: It ‘s a story that we’ve all seen too many times. A famous athlete divorces his wife, both during his playing career, or just a few years removed from it, and endorsement opportunities are still rolling in. The athlete is labeled for child support and / or alimony payments which are in line with an income level that is reduced significantly within a few years. The famous athlete is then out late with payments. Toss in a hard partying lifestyle, too many appearances as a pathetic way too many public events, and have the case of the Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman.
Calling Rodman “broken” and “very ill”, Dennis’ lawyers work pro bono are arguing in court that he is able to keep pace with their living expenses, let alone those of his ex-wife. Here’s the sad story from the Los Angeles Times:
Rodman is behind in its payments and faces a judge Tuesday in Orange. He faces up to 20 days in jail for failure to pay spousal and child support, according to a lawyer for his ex-wife. As of March 1, Rodman, 51, was $ 808.935 in back child support for the 9 – and 10 years who had children with his third wife, Michelle Rodman, said his lawyer, Jack Kayajanian, in court documents.
Rodman also has $ 51,441 on March 1 in spousal support for your back, Kayajanian lawyer said in court documents.Rodman ‘s, Linnea Willis, in the documents did not specify what she meant by “sick”. It is not clear if Dennis is suffering from some sort of illness, is broken by the weight of its debts, or if you’re referring to “well-documented problem with alcohol,” he told his manager about ABC News on Tuesday. What is clear is that this is just sad, sad, sad.
Allen Iverson and other athletes who have gone bankrupt:
The former defensive player of the year and seven-time rebounding champ actually only had a season high salary as a player also by the relative definitions wage of his time. It ‘was one of the lowest paid players on his team until 1996-97 before making less than $ 9 million (including $ 9 million, but lost a piece that, because of a suspension of 11 games during the his second championship run with Chicago. The following season he made half of that charge in an incentive contract, because the Bulls were suspicious of his behavior.
Dennis has made no attempt to hide his night-hopping lifestyle Party Boy, but it should be noted that for each roll of bad taste or body spray vodka bar apparently Rodman struts, has compensated for his time. These appearances are paid, even if Dennis is performed in a D-list just above “Hobie” from Baywatch these days. That’s not to say that Dennis does not blow his money at these shindigs, but also if you have to think of the children every time you see him and his cap Ed Hardy on a red carpet somewhere.
