In the interview, the Basketball Hall of Famer disputed reports that emerged two weeks ago stating that he was broke and sick, saying he’s neither.
“I’m not a deadbeat dad,” Rodman said. “Yeah, I pay child support. I’m not one of the guys that made Michael Jordan money or Scottie Pippen money. I made a decent living in the NBA, but broke? I’m not broke,” he says.
Asked about having a drinking problem, Rodman disputed that, too.
“I’m not sick, man. People have had those allegations about me since 1995. ‘Dennis parties a lot, Dennis does this.’ I’m going to do what I do. I’ve proved people wrong from day one, I’m still proving people wrong that the fact that I’m still loving it.”
“I feel good. I’m 50 years old, I do go out and have a good time, and most of the things I do is based on appearances around the world.”
Rodman also says he’s unlikely to suffer a similar fate to recently deceased stars like Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse because he does not do cocaine.
“I never even tried cocaine. I never even came near cocaine,” he states.
Rodman was adamant about using the interview to clear his name and reputation. But what’s strange is that he was only clearing his name from the allegations made by his attorney and finance manager.
