Since Cailtyn Jenner was introduced to the world courtesy of her Vanity Fair spread photo-shoot by Annie Lebowitz, she has been inundated with compliments for her appearance. In fact, one individual who was so taken with Bruce Jenner’s transition is Dennis Rodman, who admitted that he’d love to take Caitlyn Jenner on a date.
The former NBA star, who is also known for his cross-dressing antics, told TMZ Hollywood Sports that he’d love to take Caitlyn on a date, especially if she’s struggling to figure out what her sexual preference is.
Rodman exclaimed to Jenner, through the website, “If you wanna go on a date with me brotha, let me know.”
Meanwhile, Rodman also admitted that he’s been very impressed with the way that the world and the sports community has reacted to Caitlyn Jenner’s unveiling, stating that if it had happened thirty years ago when Bruce Jenner was at his physical prime, the reaction would have been much more heated.
Rodman declared that if Jenner had admitted to this 15 or 20 years ago, then he “would’ve had his a** handed to him,” while the former Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons player predicted that several other athletes will probably be inspired to come out because of Caitlyn Jenner’s revelation. You can check out Rodman’s full discussion with TMZ Sports below.
Dennis Rodman previously admitted in his book that he would dress up as a girl when he was a child. He wrote, “As a kid I would sometimes dress up as a girl. You play house, you play doctor, everybody does that. But some people make it more than others. I used to go through the whole routine, dress up, wear makeup, act like a girl.”
Rodman also took to his Twitter account to support Caitlyn Jenner.

But he wasn’t the only person to get behind Caitlyn Jenner following her unveiling, because her children and stepchildren were among the first to showcase their adulation and love for her.
