The infamous Dennis Rodman is back in trouble—again. The NBA legend owes $860,376 in child and spousal support and could face 20 days in jail if he doesn’t pay it by May 29th.
His advisor says he can’t pay it.
“In all honesty, Dennis, although a very sweet person, is an alcoholic,” Peggy Williams, his financial adviser. “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,” Williams said.
Williams said Rodman no longer has a job or a checking account and has no savings. “Respondent Dennis Rodman is broke and cannot afford any additional fees,” Rodman’s attorney, Linnea Willis, wrote in court documents, according to NewsCore.
Wait a minute! Is she really blaming his wife for his alcoholic binging? Are you kidding me? Dennis Rodman is no stranger to the “juice from the vine” and this divorce filing is just another excuse he can use to binge on alcohol. Don’t get me wrong, I am very sympathetic to those who suffer with abuse, but the first step to recovery is to acknowledge your addiction and stop making excuses.
I hope Dennis Rodman can get on the right path and get his life together. Perhaps he needs an intervention to save his life–before death intervenes to take it.
