Dennis Rodman partied with Kim Jong-un at his home with 'hotties and vodka' during North Korea visit in 2013
The NBA legend said him and Kim really got drunk and started singing karaoke
Dennis Rodman's friendship with Kim Jong-un is well-documented, and the basketball star recently revealed he partied with the North Korean dictator at his secret lair with the help of "hotties" and "vodka."
Rodman's relationship with Kim began after he acted as an ambassador for the US with the hermit nation in 2013 due to a twist of fate. The North Korean leader, a huge basketball fan, reportedly wanted to meet Rodman's former Chicago Bulls teammate Michael Jordan, and when he refused, Rodman was drafted in his place.
The 58-year-old then went on a trip to the country with the Harlem Globetrotters and "dignitaries," and described his first meeting with Kim on an episode of Mike Tyson's HotBoxin' podcast last week.
"I’m thinking I’m going to do an autograph show or play basketball. I ain’t know anything about North Korea, stupid as f***, right?" he told Tyson.
He said that the military presence made him feel like he had been arrested when he arrived and that he was led to a basketball area where there was a long row of king-style chairs. "Next thing I know, 22,000 North Koreans all stand up and start clapping," he said. "It was loud clapping and they're cheering and I'm thinking they were doing it for me."
"So I wave and someone tells me, 'No, that's for him' and points at Kim Jong Un,'" he continued. "I asked, 'Who is that guy?' and they told me 'that's our leader,' so I asked... 'leader of what?"
Soon enough, he was in the company of the dictator. "He asked, 'You like my country?' and I said, 'yeah, it's fine, it's cool, it's okay.'"
He said Kim then told him they asked for him because Jordan had refused the invitation, but that they immediately bonded over their shared love for basketball. After the game, Rodman said Kim invited him over to his home for a wild party.
"Let's have dinner tonight, a little karaoke and have some vodka, some hotties and stuff like that," the basketballer said Kim told him.
"Next thing I know, we are having dinner and we are drunk as sh-t, he starts singing karaoke and I have no clue what the f*** he’s talking about. Everyone starts clapping and then he has this 18-piece girl band come out and these girls are hot but they just played one song. Just one f***ing song. It was the theme from Dallas."
Rodman said he suggested that they learn some songs from the likes of Pearl Jam, Van Halen, and Rolling Stones and that the next time he visited North Korea, they played all his requests.
"I've seen the military, I've seen the missiles, I've seen everything," he added, before insisting that he had never talked politics with the dictator.
"The politics, I don’t get involved with that. I came here to bring sports."
Following recent speculation over Kim's health, Rodman said he was "praying" for his good friend and was hoping reports of his ill health are "just a rumor."
"I hope it's just a rumor that Marshal Kim Jong-un is sick," he said. "Hopefully, I will find out more soon. There is still so much work we have to do between both the USA and DPRK," the former Chicago Bull star said. "If he is not feeling well, I am praying for his speedy recovery, so that both my friends [President Trump & Marshal Kim] can continue towards a peaceful success."
