Dennis Rodman's ex-wife is an American former adult model and author. However, Annie is best recognized as the ex-spouse of an NBA player, actor, and wrestler. With her beautiful looks and impressive physique, Bakes has attracted a large following.

Annie became the most sought-after model in a short period, owing to her exquisite looks and incredible physique. Unfortunately, while at the height of fame, the model was involved in a car accident, leaving her with injuries and scars.

Nonetheless, the model started working at nightclubs as a means to earn a living. Unfortunately, little is known regarding Dennis Rodman's ex-wife's earnings while working in nightclubs, but based on her appearance and fitness, we may infer she was well compensated.

She sold Rodman's jersey for $4,300 in the episode, down from its original worth of roughly $8000, to help pay for her daughter's tuition. As a result, there's a chance Bakes' net worth wasn't as significant as most people imagine.
