Rodman has long battled alcoholism and admitted that a recent rant during an interview with CNN from North Korea was fueled by alcohol. Rodman has been criticized for befriending North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and failing to understand the magnitude of mistreatment for which Kim is responsible.
Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince, told the media about his client checking back into rehab.
“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.”
Rodman has been known for his piercings, tattoos, colored hair and partying ways throughout most of his career. He recently put his name on a type of vodka — Dennis Rodman — The original Bad Ass Premium Vodka — which looks like a terrible endorsement deal now that he’s entered rehab.Google+
