Dennis Rodman reportedly participated in a bizarre heist at a yoga studio. He and three other companions were caught on video stealing clothing and a $2,500 crystal art piece.


Dennis Rodman is being accused of theft by owners of a popular yoga studio in Newport Beach. The former NBA star arrived in the upscale fitness center past noon on Tuesday and used distraction to assist his three companions, a male, and two females, in the heist.


TMZ Sports obtained a video of the bizarre incident which showed the 57-year-old distracting employees to allow his accomplices to do the dirty deed.

One woman stuffed expensive clothes in a bag while the other man set his sights on a 400-lb crystal art piece which reportedly cost $2,500.


The man first asked if he could purchase the expensive crystal after putting it in a dolly. He offered to pay for it later. But in a weird twist, he breaks the crystal intentionally, allowing his two female accomplices to continue looting the studio of clothes while the employees were distracted with the shattering crystal.

When they were done, they left the studio with a total of $500 worth of clothing and the broken art piece. They even blamed the staff for what happened to the crystal.


The owner of the store reported the incident to the police and claimed Rodman and his associates smelled of alcohol during the daytime robbery.

When the press tried to reach Rodman’s attorney for comment, he declined.

Rodman’s latest stint places him in a sticky situation since he’s currently on three-year probation due to a drunk driving incident in January 2018. He entered rehab after the arrest but admitted in December that he broke his sobriety and had to return to Alcoholics Anonymous.

“It’s a long process and it’s gonna take time to try and get over the hump,” the basketball star told TMZ then.

News of the yoga studio heist only proves that he’s not over that hump yet.
