Dennis Rodman is facing tough times these days, and they could get tougher. Rodman could get up to 20 days in jail Tuesday for failure to pay spousal and child support, according to an attorney for his ex-wife.
Jack Kayajanian, attorney for Rodman's third wife, Michelle Rodman, said in court documents the one-time Laker owes $808,935 in back child support through March 1 for the former couple's 9- and 10-year-old children, as well as $51,441 in back spousal support, as reported in the Daily Pilot.
Michelle Rodman also is seeking attorneys' fees, the Daily Pilot is reporting.
Rodman's attorney, Linnea Willis, said in court documents that Rodman can barely afford his own living expenses as well as child support for a child he has from another relationship. Court documents filed on his behalf call Rodman "broke" and "extremely sick," and therefore unable to pay additional fees.
But, according to ABCNews.com, Willis also said in a statement "it is absolutely untrue that Mr. Rodman failed to pay child or spousal support. Mr. Rodman has always provided support to his family to the best of his ability and will continue to do so."
