Dennis Rodman could spend up to 20 days in an Orange County jail if he does not have his contempt of court verdict reversed. Last November, his ex-wife filed a lawsuit against the former pro basketball player, claiming that he owed her roughly $860,000 in unpaid child support and spousal support.
Rodman’s lawyers have said that this amount is extremely too high, and that Rodman is currently paying his monthly support to the best of his ability. He has three children that he supports this way, and does not make as high of an income as when he was playing in the NBA.
In 2010, Rodman was ordered to pay $50,000 a month in child support, but that amount was largely reduced to $4,500. According to Rodman’s attorney, the contempt of court charge was based on the $50,000 monthly installment, and therefore is not accurate. The hearing for the contempt of court charge was delayed until May 29.
