Madonna once offered Dennis Rodman $20 million to father her child, the former NBA star claimed in an explosive interview.
Speaking candidly to The Breakfast Club, Rodman says he dated Madonna in the early '90s, when, by his assessment, his star was rising and hers was "slipping." One day, while he was gambling in a Las Vegas casino, the pit boss told him he had a call from Madonna, who rang from New York City to tell him that she was ovulating.
"I said ovulating? What is that? I was trying to f--k with her," he joked.
Rodman said he jumped on a G5 plane that she sent, tended to Madonna's ovum, and flew back to the casino, which held his table for him.
"When you have money, they do that," he explained.
He also let slip that she offered him a tidy sum to knock her up: "She asked me that if I got her pregnant she'd pay me $20 million." He ominously added that the baby "would have to be born" in order to get the pay day.
The Material Girl and Rodman never had a baby, but she famously had children with actor Carlos Leon and film director Guy Ritchie, and later adopted four children from Malawi.
