0

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has checked into a rehabilitation center to treat his long-time struggle with alcoholism, his agent Darren Prince announced.

Darren Prince declined on Saturday to say which facility will treat Dennis Rodman and how long he will be there.

Dennis Rodman, 52, recently returned to the US from his latest trip to North Korea.

He later apologized for comments he made in North Korea about detained American missionary Kenneth Bae, saying he had been drinking and was under pressure as he organized an exhibition game there.

Dennis Rodman sang Happy Birthday to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at the start of the exhibition game.

“What was potentially a historic and monumental event turned into a nightmare for everyone concerned,” Darren Prince said.


“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.

“He is embarrassed, saddened and remorseful for the anger and hurt his words have caused.”

Dennis Rodman won five NBA championships with the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls and was one of the NBA’s fiercest rebounders and most colorful personalities.
