Alcohol addiction and declining marketability have sidelined Dennis Rodman and rendered him unable to pay an "unjustified" amount of child support, representatives for the former NBA player said today.
Rodman's manager, Darren Price, told ABCNews.com today that the former Chicago Bulls' rebound star 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."
While Rodman isn't in an inpatient treatment program, Prince said, "He does see a counselor from time to time."
The Los Angeles Times reported that Rodman's attorney Linnea Willis said Rodman "is broke and cannot afford any additional fees," in court papers filed today. She also said he is "extremely sick."
The filing came in response to allegations from the attorney for Rodman's third wife, Michelle Rodman, that as of March 1, Rodman owed $808,935 in back child support for the couple's 9- and 10-year-old children and $51,441 in back spousal support. He was previously ordered to pay his ex-wife $50,000 per month for child support.
Willis said in a statement that "even the wealthiest celebrities in the world" would not be ordered to pay $50,000 a month, and while Rodman hasn't been able to make payments of that amount, "it is absolutely untrue that Mr. Rodman failed to pay child or spousal support.

Who would have ever thought?
Yeah. Who didn’t see that coming.
He had his moment in the sun. Wish him well.
Being a total freak will do that.
That reminds me...want to buy some Whitney Houston Tickets...Cheap!!!!
He is going to be the world’s most hideous corpse some day.
Wasn’t he known as “the worm”?
Can’t remember now.
Rodman is a fixture in the Deep Ellum club scene and he is one of the goofiest, friendliest people you would ever meet. BUT! and it is a big but, I’ve never seen a person who could put back a bottle of vodka like him. We were at Cafe De Brazil in Deep Ellum about midnight saturday about a year ago and he came in with two bottles and drank both of them and walked out like he drank coffee only.
He was a real likeable guy before he got all inked up and stupid when he was a fundamental reason the Pistons won the NBA championship before going to Chicago.
YEP - THE WORM
He has good days and bad ones and good weeks and bad weeks.”
So some weeks he’s sober and some weeks he’s drunk.
I think tattoo ink does some thing to your brain.
Wow. He must be part Norweigan. Those guys drink like Vikings which....kinda follows.
Conway left KFI?
Dang, the only constants there are Handel and John & Ken...
Will obamma call Rodman’s ex and offer his condolences. Will he say that it’s all Bushs fault.
Can’t wait till Joe Taxpayer is on the hook for his ex’s and child’s MediCaid and his upcoming liver transplant. $30 mill only goes so far especially when you have a tattooist and wedding dress designer on call.
Here's to ya...............*HIC*

Do you recall when a young lady got her face cut off by a cigarette boat on Lake Lewisville about ten years ago?
Though it was never proven, the liklihood is that it was Rodman's boat, though being driven by an associate of his.
I wonder if the incident troubles him at all...
Come to think of it, I wouldn't have felt for the dumb bastard before last week, either.
