Dennis Rodman is not faring well these days. The rebounding legend is allegedly struggling with his alcohol addiction and unable to meet his child support obligations, according to ABC News.

Rodman’s battle with the bottle has been documented on the “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” His erratic behavior on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2009 led to an intervention that included famed NBA coach Phil Jackson and a host of concerned family and friends.

Later that year, he appeared on the third season of Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s television show where he managed to undergo a strict 21-day treatment cycle and agreed to continue the program at its sober living facility. Ironically, on the same day as the premiere of the new season of “Celebrity Rehab,” police escorted Rodman out of a Orange County, California restaurant for boozy behavior.

Darren Price, Rodman’s manager, tells ABC News that the athlete has some days that are better than others, “…All the stress from the divorce and not seeing his kids isn’t helping. As people know, it’s a daily struggle. He has good days and bad ones and good weeks and bad weeks.” Prince did reveal that while his client has not checked into an in-treatment program,”He does see a counselor from time to time.”

As far as money troubles, Rodman has had public battles over spousal and child support.  The Los Angeles Times reported that Rodman’s lawyer, Linnea Willis, admitted her client “is broke and cannot afford any additional fees,” in court papers filed Tuesday. She also said he is “extremely sick and his marketability is diminishing with age and illness.”

The filings that Willis mentioned is connected to Rodman’s third wife, Michelle, whom he owes a whopping $808,935 in back child support for their two children. He’s court-mandated to pay his ex $50,000 a month in spousal support in addition to the unpaid debt of $51,441.

According to Rodman’s lawyer, the retired Hall of Famer is barely eking out a living for himself with all of the obligations he has to meet. He has financial obligations to another child he had with his first wife as well. Willis and the host of attorneys who have represented Rodman have worked pro bono, according to Willis.

If the former party boy doesn’t find a way to pay up, he can face 20 days in jail for failure to pay child and spousal support according to Rodman’s ex-lawyer Jack Kayajanian in court documents, as reported by ABC News.

Rodman’s lawyers claim he has only earned $8,000 so far this year.
