Dennis Rodman and Madonna’s Relationship Was a Whirlwind

Dennis Rodman, whose on- and off-the-court antics take center stage in the ESPN docuseries The Last Dance (which hits Netflix July 19), is known for his personal life as much as his incredible basketball record. Though it isn’t explicitly discussed in the series, fans of the player may remember all too well what might be considered his most high-profile relationship. Rodman and Madonna dated in 1994 (sources sometimes place the relationship later, but 1994 appears to be the relevant time period, per his 30 for 30 episode). The two only dated for two months, but it was highly publicized. Speculation is that Madonna may have had an effect on Rodman’s style and interest in publicity stunts at the time—like showing up to his book signing in a wedding dress in 1996—but Rodman has said she didn’t influence him. So what do we know about this couple?

Madonna and Rodman’s relationship was short but…wild.

Apparently, when the two met, Madonna locked Rodman in her hotel room and said, “I’m not letting you out.” He said he thought her music “sucked” and refused to call her Madonna, instead referring to her as “Tita.”
