Dennis Rodman could’ve earned millions of dollars if he had got Madonna pregnant, according to the former NBA star. The 58-year-old former athlete opened up about his high-profile affair with the pop star during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” on Thursday, September 19.
When co-host Charlamagne the God asked, “They say you broke up with Madonna because you didn’t want to get her pregnant,” Dennis said that, contrary to the rumors, he indeed tried to impregnate the Queen of Pop in the 1990s. “I tried over here by Central Park. She had that big three-story place over there. I was rolling the dice in Vegas and she’s in New York,” he went on detailing.
Dennis said that while he was willingly doing it, Madge went to great lengths to get them hooked up on the day she was “ovulating.” He recalled, “She says, ‘Dennis, you know what? I’m ovulating.’ ” He then told her that he’d be with her in “five hours” and she allegedly sent a plane to pick him up. The retired basketball player said he then flew to New York, “did my thing,” and went right back to Las Vegas.
“She asked me that if I got her pregnant she’d pay me $20 million,” he additionally claimed. Dennis, however, never got the money because based on the deal, he would have only earned it “if the baby was born.”
Dennis also alleged that Madonna made a similar offer to other guys and that Madonna’s eldest daughter, Lourdes, might have been born as a result of a similar arrangement she made with Miami trainer Carlos Leon. Madge gave birth to Lourdes in October 1996.
Madonna also shares a son, 19-year-old Rocco, with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie, and has four adopted kids from Malawi, 13-year-old David Banda, Mercy James, and 7-year-old twin sisters Stella and Esther.
As for Dennis, he has three kids. He welcomed his eldest daughter Alexis with his first wife Annie Bakes. He shares a son, D.J., and daughter Trinity with his third wife, Michelle Moyer.
