Who is Annie Bakes?
Anicka ‘Annie’ Bakes was born in the USA, on 26 February 1965 – her zodiac sign is Pisces, and she holds American nationality. She’s a former model, and an author, while she’s probably known best for being the ex-wife of American former professional basketball player Dennis Keith Rodman.
Early life and education
Annie was raised in the US by her parents, about whom not a lot is known because Annie respects their privacy; it’s believed that her father was in the US Army, as the family moved often while she was growing up, and that her mother was a housewife. Because she hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most people believe that she’s an only child.
Annie studied at local high schools, and became interested in various activities during those four years, including playing soccer and volleyball for her school’s teams, practicing acting with its drama club, and dancing.
She matriculated in 1983, and even though she hasn’t spoken of her further education, it’s believed by some that Annie attended the University of Pennsylvania, and that she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1987.
Upon completing her high school education, Annie became a model and was based in Las Vegas, Nevada. She apparently quit modelling after giving birth to her and Dennis’ daughter in 1988, however, after she and Dennis split, Annie returned to modelling; it’s believed that she also spent some time working as an adult model.
She published her book “Worse Than He Says He Is: My Walk On the Wild Side With Dennis Rodman” in 1997 (the book is also known under the title “White Girls Don’t Bounce”).
While Annie hasn’t share any details concerning her current job, some of her fans believe that she’s retired, while others claim that she’s still working as an adult model, which is highly unlikely because of her age.
Love life and marriage with Dennis Rodman
Annie and Dennis met at a club back in 1987; it was Dennis who found Annie attractive and approached her, and after only a year, Annie gave birth to their daughter Alexis Caitlyn.
Their relationship was plagued by infidelities, apparently on both sides; Annie and Dennis married in September 1992, but divorced less than three months later. Annie claimed that Dennis had sexually abused her, and that he gave her a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
She hasn’t spoken of any other men whom she has perhaps been with since her and Dennis’ divorce, however, it’s known that Dennis married American actress and model Carmen Electra on 14 November 1998, but they divorced in April 1999.
On 25 April 2001, Dennis’ girlfriend Michelle Moyer gave birth to their son Dennis Jr., and their daughter Trinity followed on 20 May 2002; Dennis and Michelle married in 2003, but also divorce, finalized in 2012.
As of April 2022, Annie seems to be single, was once married to Dennis Rodman, and has a daughter with him.
Hobbies and other interests
Annie was physically highly active during her 20s and 30s; she had four to five training sessions at the gym every week, as it was important for her modelling career to stay in shape.
Her favorite season is summer, mostly because she likes to sun tan at the beach and swim in the ocean; this is perhaps why Miami, Florida is her favorite city to visit.
Annie’s a fashionista, and spends most of her money on clothes.
She’s a cat-lover, and is said to have four cats.
She’s into travelling, and her career has taken her various US states, as well as to a couple of countries on other continents.
Annie enjoys watching movies late at night – her favorite actor and actress are Jim Carrey and Natalie Portman, while a couple of her favorite films include “Bruce Almighty”, “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and “Leon: The Professional”.
Age, height and net worth
Annie’s age is 57. She has long brown hair which she usually dyes blonde, her eyes are brown, while her height is 5ft 5ins (1.65m), and she weighs around 120lbs (55kgs).
As of April 2022, Annie’s net worth stands at over $100,000, while her former husband Dennis’ net worth has been estimated at more than $500,000.
