Austin American-Statesman - - LIFE & ARTS - Dennis Rod­man

OR­ANGE, CALIF. — Former NBA star Dennis Rod­man has been found in con­tempt of court and or­dered to pay $500,000 in back child sup­port to his ex-wife, her at­tor­ney said Thurs­day.

The flam­boy­ant bas­ket­ball player known for his off-court an­tics was sen­tenced to in­for­mal­pro­ba­tion, his ex-wife’s at­tor­ney, Mary Ann Noiroux, told City News Ser­vice. Or­ange County Su­pe­rior Court Com­mis­sioner Barry Michael­son warned Rod­man could face jail time if he doesn’t pay the child sup­port, she said.

An­other at­tor­ney for Rod­man’s ex-wife ar­gued in court that Rod­man owed Michelle Rod­man about $850,000, but the former NBA stand­out’s at­tor­ney chal­lenged that fig­ure, Noiroux said.

The two sides met out­side court and agreed to $500,000, which Michael­son ap­proved, Noiroux said.
