Rodman in court over child support


ORANGE, California — Flamboyant former NBA star Dennis Rodman has been told he could face up to 20 days in jail unless he pays some $860,000 in child support. But his lawyer said he's made payments and will fight to have his contempt of court finding overturned.

Rodman appeared in an Orange County court Tuesday for sentencing but it was postponed to May 29.

Rodman, 50, was found in contempt of court in November for failure to pay child support for his two children.

His ex-wife, Michelle Rodman, 44, contends that he owes more than $860,000 in child and spousal support. Rodman's attorney, Linnea Willis said on Tuesday that he owes far less, if anything at all, and she will provide the family court judge with evidence of his payments.

Rodman always has paid support "to the best of his ability" and will continue to do so, she said.
