Dennis RodmanThe daughter of just became the highest paid player in the history of the National Women’s Soccer League.

Trinity Rodman, still just 19 years old, made history after signing a four-year, $1.1 million contract with the Washington Spirit, according to BET.

“We’re incredibly excited to have Trin be a part of the Spirit family for at least the next three seasons,” said Spirit Trainer Kris Ward. “She has a truly special career ahead of her and makes us a better club on all fronts.”

ESPN reports that Rodman “joined the league last year on a three-year deal that averaged $42,000 in base salary, plus housing and bonuses.”

League was able to pay Trinity above the salary cap thanks to changes in the collective bargaining agreement

The league was able to pay him above base salary by extracting allocation funds, which allow teams to offer players amounts above the salary cap.

For 2021, the NWSL salary cap was $682,500, not including the $400,000 in allowance money, according to the 18. The new collective bargaining agreement saw the salary cap almost double to $1.1 million in 2022, with $500,000 in allowance money, the outlet reports.

Those changes to the bargaining agreement increased the maximum salary to $75,000 for most players, as well as the minimum salary to $35,000.

Rodman is expected to earn an annual base salary of $281,000, which puts her at a higher salary than World Cup star and NWSL veteran Megan Rapinoe.

While speaking with boxing legend Mike Tyson on a recent episode of his “Hotboxin” podcast, Rodman revealed that his insatiable sex life “fucked him” during his playing days.

“I’ve done this twice in my life playing sports and I never knew this would screw you up when you’re playing,” he said. “I’m trying to have sex all night before the game. It doesn’t work too well.”

Rodman married Carmen Electra in 1998, and the marriage lasted just 82 days before ending in divorce.

The basketball legend also enjoys an uncannily close relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who has invited Rodman to the isolated country several times over the years.
