Dennis Rodman’s Net worth, Career Earnings, and Salary

Dennis Rodman was born in Trenton, New Jersey on May 13, 1961. It is reported that Rodman is the eldest of his father’s 47 offspring. This is not an error. And if that weren’t strange enough, Dennis’s father’s name was ironically Philander. Shirley, Rodman’s mother, reared him in Dallas after his father abandoned the family and moved to the Philippines. He has not seen his father since 2012. After graduating from South Oak Cliff High School, Rodman worked as a nighttime airport cleaner at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.

At the time, he was just 5 feet 6 inches tall and unable to join his high school’s athletic teams. After an extraordinary growth surge, he reached 6 feet 7 inches and decided to attempt basketball again. He played for one semester at Cooke County College before failing out due to poor academic performance. He subsequently went to Southeastern Oklahoma State University, where he excelled and was named Most Valuable Player.

After adjusting for inflation, Dennis’s NBA career salary of $27 million is equivalent to around $43 million today. His highest earning season was in 1996-97 when he made $9 million, which is equivalent to almost $15 million today. He was the tenth highest-paid player in the league during that season. Unfortunately, Dennis led a similarly extravagant lifestyle and has since encountered several financial difficulties.

Dennis Rodman’s Personal Life

In the early 1990s, Rodman and Annie Bakes ended their marriage. In 1988, Alexis, their only child, was born. In November of 1998, Rodman married Carmen Electra in Las Vegas at the Little Chapel of the Flowers. After barely four months, Electra filed for divorce. In 2003, Rodman got married to Michelle Moyer. Dennis Jr. and Trinity were their two children.

Both children are athletes, with Dennis Jr. playing collegiate hoops for Washington State in 2019 and his sister Trinity competing for the Cougars in women’s soccer in 2020. In 2004, Michelle filed for divorce, although the pair spent several years attempting reconciliation. In 2012, they ended their marriage.

Alcohol Addiction Issues

Rodman has struggled with alcohol addiction. In 1999, he was arrested and fined $2,000 for driving under the influence. In April 2004, he was again detained for drunk driving. In May 2008, he joined a rehabilitation program in Florida. In 2009, he relapsed and, despite family intervention, he refused to attend treatment once more. He did accept to go on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew’s third season. He began therapy at the Pasadena Recovery Center for 21 days.

The individual subsequently moved into a sober living facility in the Hollywood Hills. His mother Shirley was reunited with him there. They had not spoken in seven years. Rodman was expelled from a Los Angeles restaurant in January 2010 for disrupting the peace. In January 2014, Rodman re-entered rehabilitation for alcohol misuse following a bender that his agent, Darren Prince, described as “unprecedented.”
