Dennis Rodman has been found guilty of contempt for owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid child support.

TMZ reports that the ex-basketball player owes $808,935 (£517,600) in child support for his 9-year-old and 10-year-old children. He also owes $51,441 (£32,900) in unpaid spousal support.

Rodman, 51, was ordered to perform 104 hours of community service, and placed on three years' probation.

An Orange Country judge also ordered that Rodman must now stay on top of all future child support and alimony payments.

The troubled athlete has been fighting the $50,000-a-month (£31,900) child support since 2010, claiming that he does not make enough money to cover the payments.

The ex-athlete rose to fame in the '90s as a player on such teams as the Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons.

In the years since, he has admitted to struggling with drug and alcohol addictions, and has even appeared on VH1's reality show Celebrity Rehab.
