Dennis Rodman Ordered to pay $500,000 In Back Child Support

Dennis Rodman

A judge has ordered Dennis Rodman to pay his ex-wife $500,000 in child support and warned the former basketball bad boy he faces jail if he fails to hand over the cash. 

The ex-sports star has been entangled in a long-running legal battle with his former partner Michelle over payments for their two children, and in May, Rodman was ordered to carry out community service and placed on informal probation after he was found to be in contempt of court. 

Rodman was found in contempt again on Thursday, when a judge in California ordered him to hand over $500,000 in back payments to Michelle and told him he could face jail if he doesn't pay up.

The Push is On in L.A.

Lakers

As Kobe Bryant watched teammate Pau Gasol gimp to an awaiting town car on crutches, en route to a doctor's examination that would reveal a torn plantar fascia muscle that will sideline him at least four to six weeks, the leader of the Los Angeles Lakers visibly sighed.

"You get more appreciative of [your accomplishments] at the end," Bryant said, "because you realize how hard it is."

Even in the wake of the news that Gasol will be out of lineup for the foreseeable future, Kobe stubbornly insists this Lakers team can be a factor in the playoffs, even though it is currently in 10th place in the Western Conference.

But, he conceded, it will require him to maintain his role as the unrelenting taskmaster.

And that means Dwight Howard will continue to feel the crack of his whip.

Bryant has publicly challenged Howard to play through a torn labrum in his shoulder, particularly now that Gasol will be out for an extended amount of time.
