Dennis Rodman Accused of Stealing 400-Pound Crystal & Other Merchandise From California Yoga Studio
Isn’t it great to have Dennis Rodman back in the news for some non-Trump related news?
The owner of a Southern California yoga studio is accusing Dennis Rodman of helping three people steal more than $3,500 in merchandise from his business.
Ali Shah says security cameras captured the former NBA star walking into Vibes Hot Yoga in Newport Beach on Tuesday with his alleged accomplices.
Shah said the four worked together to distract an employee so they could steal clothes and a 400-pound amethyst crystal from the front desk.
The group also reportedly told an employee that the “ginormous geode amethyst crystal,” which was on sale for $2,500, belonged to them and they were there to pick it up.
One of the men in the group then tried to move the crystal onto a hand truck, per the report, and dropped it. The crystal shattered, which caused about $5,000 worth of damage to the floor.[irp posts=9480]
Rodman identified his friend who actually broke the crystal in an interview with CBS2 Los Angeles, though the man only said, “no comment.”
The former NBA player claims that an employee actually asked them to move the crystal, and that he tried to help “being the good person that I am.”
Rodman told TMZ that the clothing was actually a gift and nothing was stolen. The hoops star known as “The Worm” told KCBS-TV Channel 2 that he was told, “Dennis, get anything you want.”
“I said, ‘OK, great,'” Rodman said.
Rodman told TMZ that he thinks the studio was simply trying to shake him down.
“They call it a heist, because guess what? That fucking company, I guess you call it yoga or something? They’re broke,” Rodman told TMZ.
“This is publicity, and shit like that … I don’t need to steal shit. They gave me shit.”
