Despite completing a stint in Celebrity Rehab, Dennis Rodman is not doing so well with his alcohol addiction.
In fact, he's blaming it as the reason he owes his third wife, Michelle Rodman, $808,935 in child support and $51,441 in back spousal support!
Yikes! That's a lot of money to blow on booze.
The NBA Hall of Fame basketball player's manager told sources that his client has a "well-documented drinking problem, and all the stress from the divorce and not seeing his kids isn't helping. As people know, it's a daily struggle. He has good days and bad ones and good weeks and bad weeks."
Well, he better sober up because he's facing up to 20 days in jail for failure to pay the amount of money that his attorney called too much for "even the wealthiest celebrities in the world."
It doesn't sound like he'll be paying his debts off anytime soon though. Not only did his attorney say that Rodman is "extremely sick," but that he's "broke and cannot afford any additional fees."
His attorney and manager better get on the same page though. According to his manager, Dennis is "not hurting, compared to retired athletes, with what he makes, but he's certainly not making what he made when he was paying with the Bulls."
Well now we're confused. Is he broke or isn't he?
Sources say that his most recent business venture was launching a topless women's basketball team with a New York strip club. Classy, right?
