Dennis Rodman

Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman has checked into an undisclosed rehabilitation program for alcoholism. Rodman has been battling alcohol addiction for years.

Rodman recently blamed his behavior in North Korea on his drinking, saying that the pressure to organize the exhibition game got to him.

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