Dennis Rodman: NBA Hall of Famer, extreme hair dyer, wedding dress wearer and…FBI informant? You better believe it.
After his recent trip to North Korea on what he called a “basketball democracy tour," Rodman says he has been contacted by the FBI to talk about what he saw while in the country.
“I have been contacted by the FBI and I met with them. They wanted to know what went on and who’s really in charge in North Korea,” Rodman said.
Rodman called North Korean Kim Jong-un a “friend for life” after his trip, and said him and Jong-un plan to go on vacation together in August. But regardless of their friendship, Rodman said he is aware of what’s going on in North Korea right now.
“I’m not a total idiot,” Rodman said. “I know what Kim Jong-un is threatening to do regarding his military muscle. I hope it doesn’t happen because America will take whatever actions to protect America and our allies,” he added.
Rodman says his image as an NBA bad boy has caused people to misunderstand what he’s about over the years.
“I’ve been talking to folks for years who don’t get what I’m about but that’s cool, ‘cause once they walk away they like me. I might be able to keep folks’ heads cool,” he said.
Dennis Rodman keeping heads cool? Who saw this coming fifteen years ago? Out of all the legendary 90’s NBA players, who would have thought Rodman -- the perpetual instigator -- would be the one to go on to a career in international relations?
Rodman said that peace is the motivator behind his trips and interactions with Jong-un. “We all going to find a way to get along and keep peace. Peace and love is where it is at.”
Preach it, Dennis.
