Former Chicago Bulls great Dennis Rodman finally met his biological father, the aptly named Philander Rodman after 42 years in the Philippines.
From the AP:
Philander Rodman Jr., who has acknowledged fathering 29 children by 16 mothers, says he was happy and surprised that his son agreed to meet him late Wednesday. He tried to meet the basketball Hall of Famer during another game in Manila in 2006.
”It was great,” he said Thursday of the first time he held his son’s hands since they last met in December 1969.
”I’ve been trying to meet him for years. And then last night, boom, I met him. I was really, really happy and very surprised,” he told The Associated Press.
Rodman was in Manila as part of a NBA all-star alumni team in participating in an exhibition game.
