Dennis Rodman has decided it’s high-time to check himself into an alcohol rehab center to deal with his long-time addiction to booze.
Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince, would not comment in which rehab center his client was, or how long he will remain there.
Having returned from a recent trip to North Korea, Rodman apologized for comments he made, when drunk, about a detained American missionary in North Korea. Prince said:
What was potentially a historic and monumental event turned into a nightmare for everyone concerned. Dennis Rodman came back from North Korea in pretty rough shape emotionally. The pressure that was put on him to be a combination ‘super human’ political figure and ‘fixer’ got the better of him.
Prince continued to tell reporters about the emotional state his client was in:
He is embarrassed, saddened and remorseful for the anger and hurt his words have caused.
Rodman, who is known for being one of the most flamboyant Basketball players out there, is the highest-profile American to meet the North Korean dictator and tyrant KIm Jong Un. It was his second visit to the secretive country.
But Dennis Rodman came under fire for not trying to use his influence on Kim to release American missionary Kenneth Bae, who is being held in the country on “anti-state” crimes. Rodman organized a group of retired NBA players to go to North Korea for an exhibition game.
Kim, his wife and state officials, were all in attendance, along with a crowd of 14,000 spectators, at the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium.
Prince said about Dennis Rodman‘s decision to go to North Korea again: ”People forget Dennis is just an entertainer and retired NBA star. The fact remains that a basketball game was played in North Korea live in front of 14,000 people and hundreds of millions around the world viewed clips of the game,” he said.
