Questions about the identity of her father made headlines.

Around the time that Rodin was conceived, Dickinson was in a relationship with Sylvester Stallone. But, since they weren't exclusive, the couple went through DNA tests to confirm the paternity of Rodin, which made headlines at the time. Stallone was determined to not be Rodin's biological father. Dickinson later opened up about the situation in her book No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel.

Rodin talked about learning the identity of her actual father, Michael Birnbaum, when she was seven years old in an Instagram post about the passing of NBA player Kobe Bryant.

"Meeting my Dad at age 7 was unconventional, awkward and surreal. I've picked up a lot from my dad but one of his first lessons was introducing me to the world of Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers," Rodin wrote.

She continued, "Anyway, my dad and I connected quickly, but many of our first memories were made either at Staples [Center] or on the couch ferociously cheering for number 8…and then it was number 24."
