While Dennis Rodman‘s marriage to Carmen Electra is well documented, his other ex-wives sometimes get lost in the mix. Electra came at a time when Rodman’s popularity was at its peak. On top of the marriage lasting mere months, there was one major difference between his marriage to Electra and his other two marriages. Rodman shares children with his two other ex-wives, Annie Bakes and Michelle Moyer. While Rodman had grown and learned from past mistakes by the time of his third marriage to Moyer, his marriage to Bakes was marred with various accusations. The couple shares one daughter, Alexis.

Rodman has previously admitted to having a strained relationship with Alexis. Bakes took the responsibility of taking care of Alexis’ education and her life. However, financing her daughter’s education became difficult for the former model. She had to take some major actions to earn money to pay for her daughter’s tuition.

Bakes found a way to earn money to help her pay for Alexis’ tuition. However, she had to rely on her ex-husband’s memorabilia for it. Bakes was part of an episode of the ‘Pawn Stars’ in 2013 where she hoped to earn 8-10K from Rodman’s game-worn jerseys.

Being a basketball wife, I did not fit the mold but being married to Dennis, I did enjoy. I’m selling the jerseys today because I’m paying for our daughter’s tuition,” revealed Bakes. The collection included a Detroit Pistons jersey with Rodman’s nickname, ‘The Worm’ along with his signature. Along with this, there were a couple of Chicago Bulls jerseys. One was signed to his daughter, Alexis and the other still had sweat marks on it.

There was a Dallas Mavericks jersey as well. Even though she hoped to get a big amount for the collection, she eventually had to settle for less. After some discussions, she sold the jerseys for $4300. “$4300 was a little low but I don’t have time to sell them online. It’s a fair price,” Bakes said.
