Report: Rodman agrees to end marriage
Dennis Rodman finally consented to end his marriage after an eight-year divorce battle, TMZ reported Friday.
Court papers showed the Basketball Hall of Famer signed to confirm the split from Michelle Rodman, though there was continued dispute over the $800,000 he allegedly still owes her in child support payments.
The couple wed in 2003 on the five-time NBA champion’s 42nd birthday, but Michelle Rodman filed for divorce a year later. The lengthy legal wrangling ultimately stalled amid an attempted reconciliation.
But after another break-up, she filed papers again to end the marriage this year in order to clarify their relationship to their shared son and daughter, her attorney Mary Ann Noiroux told TMZ.
Rodman recently claimed in court he was no longer able to pay monthly payments of $5,000 for a child from another relationship, in addition to the $4,500 he owed Michelle Rodman every month.
The 50-year-old said he was "extremely sick" and "broke" and unable to cash in on the colorful reputation he garnered during his glory days on court.
In January it was reported that Rodman’s latest career venture would see him coaching a topless women’s basketball team for Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club in New York.
