Former Detroit Pistons Star Checks Into Rehab
According to his agent, former NBA star Dennis Rodman has checked into an alcohol rehabilitation center to treat his long-time struggle with booze.
Rodman just got back from North Korea and created a media frenzy over comments he made about a detained American missionary. He apologized and blamed his comments on booze and the pressure that came along with organizing an exhibition basketball game.
Rodman’s agent 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. He is embarrassed, saddened and remorseful for the anger and hurt his words have caused.”
