Dennis Rodman has entered an alcohol rehabilitation facility, according to Yahoo! News on Saturday. The former basketball player who won five NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons, is reportedly dealing with an alcohol problem he’s had for a lengthy period of time.

Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince, revealed the information with details as to where or how long Rodman would be treated for his alcohol concern.

Rodman returned from his recent trip to North Korea, apologizing for remarks he had made about an American detainee in the country. Rodman had strongly insinuated that the detainee had done something wrong and deserved his detainment. After that incident, Rodman said he made such remarks when he was stressed and influenced by alcohol.

While in North Korea, Rodman also sang “Happy Birthday” to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the beginning of an exhibition basketball game – which also made negative headlines for the basketball star.

Prince said that Rodman had come back from North Korea in pretty rough shape emotionally. He said, “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.”
