Dennis Rodman Enters Rehab for Alcohol Abuse

Dennis Rodman has checked into rehab.

The former NBA All-Star, who totally lost his $hit during an interview with CNN this month in concert with his trip to North Korea , has admitted he has a drinking problem.

The five-time NBA champion has come under heavy scrutiny for celebrating the 31st birthday of dictator Kim Jong-un by playing in an exhibition basketball game in North Korea along with a number of ex-professional ballers.

Rodman was asked by Chris Cuomo about the adventure a few weeks ago, flipped out over questions regarding that nation's human rights violations and later apologized, saying he was wasted at the time.

"What was potentially a historic and monumental event turned into a nightmare for everyone concerned," Rodman's agent Darren Prince told USA Today in a statement, adding:

"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 appeared on Season 3 of Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, but - shockingly - that rehab visit didn't change his behavior.

Let's hope he takes his latest one a bit more seriously.
