Dennis Rodman: Madonna once made me outrageous $20M offer
Dennis Rodman tends to sneak back into the headlines from time to time, which makes complete sense given his enigmatic and outrageous personality. From his bizarre friendship to a certain North Korean dictator to his occasional run-ins with the law, rarely is it that Rodman remains out of the spotlight for an extended period.
With ESPN’s new “30 For 30” documentary, “Dennis Rodman: For Better or Worse,” the man known as “The Worm” is again attracting a lot of attention. Given the kind of yarns he is known to spin — like a recent one concerning an intimate detail from his bonkers relationship with Madonna back in the day — it’s hardly a shock Rodman continues to fascinate.
During an interview this week on 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” Rodman claimed that Madonna once made him a $20 million offer. For what? To impregnate her.
When the two were dating in the mid-90s, Rodman relays, he was “rolling the dice in Vegas” when Madonna reached out to him to inform him that she was ovulating.
“She asked me that if I got her pregnant she’d pay me $20 million,” Rodman said on the show, per TMZ Sports.
Rodman says he then hopped on a plane that Madonna dispatched for him, flew to New York and shortly afterward returned to Sin City.
Things obviously did not work out on the conception front, but Rodman insisted, “I tried.”
The case can be made that Rodman’s relationship with the truth over the years has been as tumultuous as the one he shared with Madonna. With that in mind, it’s uncertain whether Rodman’s tale is to be believed, but given the unconventional lifestyles enjoyed by he and Madonna — not to mention her immense wealth — the case can be made that anything’s possible when it comes to those two.
