Dennis Rodman paid a surprise visit to his daughter’s soccer game this weekend — and she says it was a very emotional and shocking moment… and revealed that the two barely spoke to each other.
Trinity Rodman — who went #2 overall in the National Women Soccer League draft in January — explained on social media Monday that the former NBA star showed up out of nowhere during her Washington Spirits game on Sunday.
In her post, she said it was the first time she’d seen him in a long time… and called the reunion at the North Carolina Courage game “an extremely emotional one.”
“Yes, Dennis Rodman showed up to a Nwsl game, but so did my dad, after he surprised me at a big game in my career for YEARS,” said the 19-year-old. “I was shocked, overwhelmed, happy, sad, everything.”
Trinity — who shared a photo of the two at the match in her post — says Rodman hasn’t been much in her life… and explained that sometimes they don’t see each other for months.
“My dad doesn’t play a big role in my life at all and most people don’t know that, we don’t see many things in agreement,” Trinity said.
“Being in the spotlight is hard for us, him and me. We don’t have the best relationship, but in the end he’s human, I’m human.”
But Trinity did say she hopes their emotional moment on the pitch will be the start of a better father-daughter relationship.
“He is my father, and I am his little girl who will never change,” Trinity wrote. “I will improve and look forward every day as I hope he does.”
Dennis had Trinity and his son, Dennis Jr., of Michelle Moyer, whom he met in 1999. They married in 2003, but Michelle filed for divorce in 2004. It was completed in 2012.
Trinity, meanwhile, is one of the Spirit’s best players this season…with six goals and 5 assists in 22 games played.
