The NBA might never again have someone as controversial as Dennis Rodman play in the league. The former professional basketball player was a very talented player known for his defensive and rebounding abilities. He would go on to use this God-given talent of his to win numerous accolades in the game, however, his numerous controversial antics always overshadowed what he achieved and all the good he did. These antics further put a strain on his relationship with daughter Alexis Rodman. Thankfully, the pair now have a beautiful relationship as they’ve been seen spending some time together in recent times.
Alexis Rodman’s Parents Began Dating in 1987 After Meeting at a Club in Los Angeles
As the story goes, NBA player Dennis Rodman first met Annie Bakes, the mother of his daughter Alexis, at a club in Los Angeles, California in 1987. Bakes was an adult model and she caught the eye of Rodman on a night out. There was an instant connection between the pair and they would go on to become head over heels in love with each other.
The relationship between the NBA player and the model would last for a few years although they were reports that they separated a few times. Not long after one of their lengthy separations, the duo opted to get married. They exchanged vows in September 1992, however, it didn’t take long before they decided to go their separate ways. Rodman and Bakes divorced after 82 days together.
Alexis was Born in 1988
A year after her parents got together and began dating, the pair welcomed a daughter they named Alexis Caitlyn Rodman. While the month and exact date she was born is not known, it was in 1988, about a year after her father and mother began dating.
As a result of the origins of her parents, Alexis Rodman is of mixed ethnicity. Her father is African American while her mother is Caucasian. The interracial relationship of her parents led to them creating someone as beautiful as herself.
She Used to Have a Strenuous Relationship with Her Father
Dennis Rodman’s relationship and subsequent marriage to Alexis Rodman’s mother was marred by infidelities and accusations of abuse. Annie Bakes alleged that Dennis gave her an STD and forced her to have as many as four abortions, making it impossible for her to have kids in the future.
Due to all of this, Alexis was estranged from her father and developed behavioral issues. She was also quite violent towards her schoolmates and would always say she does it because her father did it on the court and got away with it. The young girl was able to later get counseling that helped her to deal with all the issues in her life. She has since become a vibrant young woman with a positive relationship with both her father and mother.
Alexis Rodman Has Siblings From Her Father’s Other Marriage
While Alexis Rodman’s mother never had any other kids, her father welcomed two more children with his third wife Michelle Moyer. Dennis notably dated singer Madonna and was briefly married to actress Carmen Electra but it was his third marriage to Moyer that made Alexis a big sister.
While Moyer and Rodman wedded in 2003, they had become two-time parents before that time. In April 2001, their son Dennis Jr. (D. J) was born. A year later in May 2002, daughter Trinity was welcomed to the world. Unlike Alexis, D.J and Trinity have opted to follow in their father’s footsteps to pursue athletic careers. D.J plays basketball while Trinity plays soccer. She is notably the youngest player ever drafted in NWSL history and has represented both the U17 and U20 United States teams.

Alexis Rodman has generally lived a life away from the limelight. As a result, much about where she attended school and other details about her personal life are not known. While we know that she did not pursue a career as an athlete, we do not know if she played any sport in college.
Ome thing that is however public knowledge about her personal life is that she is married. Dennis Rodman’s daughter is happily married to her boyfriend of many years named Robert Bunfill. The duo wedded at an intimate ceremony in Citrus Heights, California on the 30th of August, 2014.
