New reports from North Korea indicate Dennis Rodman got drunk, acted out, and defecated publicly during his trip to Pyongyang.
Rodman, who traveled to North Korea as part of his "basketball diplomacy" trip, reportedly vomited and relieved himself inside the Koryo Hotel.
"Rodman was drunk the whole week of his stay," an unidentified source told the Korea Times. "And the night before he left for the U.S., he was drunk, unconscious and vomited everywhere he turned. He even urinated and emptied the bowels in the hallway."
According to the Korea Times, hotel employees who saw Rodman acting out were enraged both by his behavior and their having to clean up the mess.
"The stench was just horrible and people are criticizing not only Rodman, but also Kim Jong-un, saying that 'No one in a right mind would be a friend with Rodman.' An animal that he is," the source told the Korea Times.
North Korean officials reportedly told Rodman he wouldn't be let back into the country anytime soon.
"Never will you be welcome here without the completion of your alcohol abuse treatment program," the unnamed source concluded.
Rodman visited North Korea in hopes of organizing a match between a United States all-star lineup and a Pyongyang basketball team. He insisted multiple times that the trip was not an effort to bolster political relations between the two nations, rather, to use the sport as a way to connect.
He also referred to leader Kim Jong-un as his "friend" on a handful of occasions.
Soon after he arrived in Pyongyang for his latest trip, he and the American basketball team appeared on a CNN interview that quickly escalated once host Chris Cuomo grilled Rodman about his intentions in North Korea.
Rodman later admitted he'd been drinking during the interview.
