    Dennis Rodman could have been $20 million richer, thanks to Madonna -- at least, according to him.

    TMZ reported that the former NBA player made the claim Wednesday during an interview on "The Breakfast Club." He told Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee he was in Las Vegas rolling dice when he got a call from Madonna, who told him she was ovulating.

    Rodman said he stopped the game, flew a private jet to Madonna's home in New York, and she made the offer.

    "She asked me that if I got her pregnant she'd pay me $20 million," he said. "That's if the baby was born.", according to TMZ.

    According to Rodman, he wasn't the only one who got an offer like that from the pop singer. He claimed a similar arrangement was made with a dancer.

    Madonna and Rodman dated in the early '90s when he was playing for the San Antonio Spurs. In his ESPN "30 for 30" documentary "Rodman: For Better or Worse," he briefly touched on their relationship.

    "We had a nice little fling. That came and gone ... We came together in the perfect time," he told USA Today last week. "She was stagnating in her career, and I was coming up. We helped to motivate each other, going in the same direction at that particular time."

    The interview, which contains explicit language, can be watched on YouTube.
