`Broke` NBA star Dennis Rodman spotted throwing around money in Vegas

London, Mon, 02 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 2 (ANI): Dennis Rodman, whose lawyer claimed last month that the NBA legend was so broke he couldn't make his child support payments, was spotted shopping at a pricey boutique in Las Vegas and throwing handfuls of cash onto the floor.

According to TMZ, a video of the troubled former basketball player was taken sometime in March and shows a man they believe to be him inside a clothing store at the MGM Grand Hotel.

Witnesses report Rodman spent a "couple thousand" dollars on new on new clothes.

The flamboyant ex sportsman can be seen on the video dancing, waving his arms and flinging stacks of dollar bills into the air.

Attorney Linnea Willis said the 50-year-old suffers from alcoholism and is barely able to cover his living expenses, let alone pay the nearly $1million in child and spousal support Rodman is said to owe.

Court documents obtained by The Los Angeles Times show as of March 1 Rodman owed 808,935 dollars in child support for his nine- and ten-year-old children.

The New Jersey native also owed 51,441 dollars in back spousal support, Jack Kayajanian, attorney for his ex-wife, Michelle Moyer, claims in the filings.

His ex, Michelle Rodman is identified in the documents as a Costa Mesa, California resident and she is also requesting attorneys' fees.

But the former athlete's attorney says it's unreasonable to expect Rodman can afford the payments.

"Respondent Dennis Rodman is broke and cannot afford any additional fees', Mr Willis writes in filings on his behalf, adding that he is "extremely sick"," the Daily Mail quoted his attorney as saying.

"...And in all honesty, Dennis, although a very sweet person, is an alcoholic.

"His sickness impacts his ability to get work. This case, especially his wife filling for divorce, has put him on a binge that I have never seen before.

"He is extremely hurt and extremely sick. He is often unable to obtain work because of this sickness. And his sickness is getting increasingly worse." Willis wrote.

Willis goes on to claim Rodman has made just 8,000 dollars this year, a staggering difference from the 570,000 dollars in earnings he claimed at the time his wife filed for divorce.

The former couple married in 2003 on Rodman's 42nd birthday, settling in ritzy Newport beach, California.

Rodman is expected to appear at a court hearing on Tuesday in Orange, California to settle the matter.

He faces up to 20 days in jail for failure to pay spousal and child support. (ANI)
