Dennis Rodman has checked into an undisclosed alcohol rehabilitation center to treat his long-time struggle with alcoholism, his agent says.
Rodman apologized Thursday for comments about captive American missionary Kenneth Bae in North Korea: “I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day.”
Wednesday’s basketball game was a new milestone in Rodman’s unusual relationship with Kim, who rarely meets with foreigners and remains a mystery to much of the outside world.
Charles D. Smith says he feels remorse for coming to Pyongyang with Dennis Rodman for a game on the North Korean leader’s birthday because the event has been dwarfed by politics and tainted by Rodman’s own comments.
Rodman said Monday that a game he and other former NBA players are planning in North Korea will be a “birthday present” for one of their most unlikely fans: leader Kim Jong Un.
Dennis Rodman held tryouts Friday for a North Korean team to face a dozen NBA veterans in an exhibition game on Kim Jong Un’s birthday next month – though he hasn’t convinced all the players on the American team that it’s safe.
Rodman plans to return to North Korea in January to play and exhibition game with Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone.
Rodman is tapping his friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to ask for the release of a Korean-American man sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in the North.
North Korea issued its own warning, saying Japan will be its first target if war breaks out.
Fmr. President Carter Offers To Go On Diplomatic Mission To North Korea, Calls Tensions ‘Very Serious’
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Former President Jimmy Carter met with Mayor Michael Bloomberg at City Hall on Wednesday afternoon. Afterwards, Carter discussed the recently racheted-up tensions with North Korea and added that he’d be willing […]
This is the second stop on Rodman’s bizarre global tour that started with a trip to North Korea last month where the Hall of Famer met with Kim Jong Un.
In a bizarre twist, the Hall of Famer is expected to arrive in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday in a makeshift popemobile as he campaigns for Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana to become the church’s first black pope.
According to the New York Post, the Hall of Famer was asked to leave the Time Hotel in Midtown on Sunday for blabbering about how much he likes and admires the dictator.
The White House says North Korea’s government should be focused on the well-being of its citizens, not on “celebrity sporting events” to entertain the country’s elite.
“He’s proud, his country likes him — not like him, love him, love him,” Rodman said of Kim Jong Un. “Guess what, I love him. The guy’s really awesome.”
