Who dated Madonna: Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, or Dennis Rodman?

As per reports, it was Dennis Rodman who dated Madona for a brief period of time. The two got together after he divorced Annie Banks, dating for a couple of months before parting ways. Despite the short duration, the two created enough buzz for it to be one of the most talked-about relationships out there.

While together, Madonna also wanted to have a child with Rodman. Reports added that she apparently offered the five-time NBA champion $20 million dollars so he could impregnate her. Rodman even spoke about Madonna in his book Bad As I Wanna Be; he also mentioned faxes Madonna sent him because she missed his presence.

Interestingly, Pippen and Madonna also shared a unique relationship where the singer picked the former up with a limo with a hot tub every time they were in LA.

Rodman has also dated actress Vivica Fox, whom he dated and divorced in the same year. The former Detroit Pistons star also dated Carmen Electra, who claims to have fallen in love with him during a vulnerable time of her life.

They ended up dating for around nine months, tying the knot at Little Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas, filing for annulment only nine days later. Jeanie Buss and Michelle Moyer are other celebrities Rodman dated during that time. Moyer and Rodman were married for a few years, and have two children together: Dennis Jr (2000) and Trinity (2001).

Rodman has been private about his dating life ever since, none of his relationships public.

Who all did Michael Jordan date before settling down with Yvette Prieto?

One of Jordan’s first relationships was with actress Robin Givens. However, the two were together for only a few months, parting ways in 1985. “Other people weren’t the problem. Both distance and the demands of our careers were the problem,” Givens said after the break-up.

The six-time NBA Champion met his first wife, Juanita Vanoy after his affair with Givens. They seemed to be the perfect couple and had three children together – Jeffrey, Marcus, and Jasmine. In 2002, Jasmine filed for divorce, speaking of “irreconcilable differences”. They tried to get back together, which worked until they split mutually in 2006.

The divorce apparently cost Jordan $168 million, making it one of the more expensive divorce settlements in celebrity history.

The couple lived together for some time before getting engaged, and also have two daughters (twins):  Victoria and Ysabel.
