Dennis Rodman owes the state of California more than $42,000 in back taxes.
DENNIS RODMAN, the former Chicago Bulls NBA star, owes over $42,000 in unpaid taxes, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. A tax lien of $42,497 was filed against Rodman back on 11th May 2011 in California's Orange County, but the 49-year-old's business manager PEGGY KING disputes that such debt exists. King said, "We just got a refund check from the state for $42,000 or $43,000. If you owed the money, you'd never get a check from them ... it's got to be incorrect". Rodman will learn this week whether he is a finalist for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and it was announced on Friday (11th February 2011) that the Detroit Pistons are set to retire Rodman's legendary No. 10 jersey during a halftime ceremony on 1st April 2011. Rodman played the first seven seasons of his career in Detroit and was a key member of the team's championship winning seasons in 1989 and 1990.
In recent years, the 49-year-old has made a number of television appearances, most recently on 'Celebrity Apprentice' in 2009. His misbehaviour on the show led to his family and friends urging him to seek rehabilitation and he appeared on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew' in 2010.
