Often labeled as one of the greatest rebounders of all time, Dennis Rodman won 5 rings in the NBA (1989, 1990, 1996, 1997, and 1998).

Over the course of his career, he played for various teams: Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks.
However, his relationship has never been as successful as his basketball career. And recently, he has been making headlines as he got a "permanent" face tattoo of his current girlfriend on his face. As a result, people have been wanting to know who he is dating in 2023. Well, we've got you covered.

Rodman got his new tattoos from tattoo artist Van Johnson, whose work has been shown on the reality TV show Black Ink Crew Chicago. Johnson posted a photo of Rodman's new permanent sign of affection on his right cheek on his own Instagram account with the caption,
So I ain't do much today, cooled out at me townhome [and] tattooed a living legend's face of this woman on his face, that's about it. What y'all do
In the short clip, Rodman's girlfriend seemed stunned as she looked at a portrait of herself. She laughed excitedly as she moved in closer to examine the tattoo.
TMZ reached Rodman and asked him about it as Yella Yella was around. He informed the source that his current partner was his 'Last Dance,' referring to the Netflix documentary and stating that he would be with Yella till death. Rodman is confident she is the one for him, which is why he wanted her on his face. He also stated why he is so madly in love with her. He said,
This is my last dance with a woman. She's very lovely. And I thank her for loving me the way I am - and that's why I did it for her.
Meanwhile, his girlfriend Yella chose the high path, claiming she does not seek credit for what Dennis Rodman did. There are, however, some discrepancies between what she says and what she does. She told,
I actually told him not to do it. I'm like, 'What are you doing?'
Yella has been re-posting Instagram stories about the procedure, despite her refusal to take credit for it. She also posted a video of everything that happened. This demonstrates how thrilled she was when Rodman permanently etched her picture on his face.
Still, this isn't the most outrageous thing Dennis Rodman has done. Throughout the years, he has taken several decisions that have stunned many people. Nobody will ever forget his decision to travel to North Korea to meet with dictator Kim Yong Un in an attempt to improve ties between the two countries.

On the other hand, Rodman has previously been married three times over his life. His first marriage, from 1992 to 1993, was to Annie Bakes. Following that, from 1998 to 1999, he married Carmen Electra, and from 2003 to 2012, he married Michelle Moyer. Rodman also has two children from his marriage to Moyer: a son named Dennis Jr. and a daughter named Trinity Rodman. Following his divorce from Moyer, she dated many girls, mostly who were half of his age.
However, it appears Dennis has found the permanent one. And it wouldn't surprise us if decides to marry her someday. It would just be added in the list of all the insane things he has done in his life.
