Dennis Rodman Checks Into Rehab

Posted Saturday January 18, 2014 10:23 PM GMT

He's had a number of bizarre appearances as of late, so it comes with little surprise that Dennis Rodman entered rehab this weekend.

According to reports, the former NBA star checked himself into a treatment center a few days ago in New Jersey for alcohol addiction.

TMZ reports the 52-year-old is "beyond exhausted and overwhelmed" and will be in the rehab facility for 30 days.

Rodman had previous stints in treatment facilities in 2008 and 2009.

He recently made a trip to North Korea and made a disastrous speech and later admitted that he was drunk.

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