Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has reportedly entered a rehab facility in New Jersey to deal with his alcohol addiction.

The 52-year-old is said to have checked himself into a clinic shortly after arriving back in the United States following a controversial trip to North Korea.

According to TMZ, it has been claimed that Rodman, who will receive care for 30 days, is 'exhausted and overwhelmed'.

Rodman blamed being drunk when he said that American citizen Kenneth Bae deserved a 15-year sentence of hard labour in North Korea during an interview with CNN.
