Dennis Rodman—yeah, this guy—is in North Korea again because reality is a strange thing and life doesn't really make any sense any more. The Worm accidentally revealed the name of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's baby daughter, Ju-ae.
The former NBA star had been explaining what a wonderful person Jong-un is when he let the girl's name slip.
"The Marshal Kim and I had a relaxing time by the sea with his family," Rodman said of his recent visit to the world's most isolated country. "We shared many meals and drinks where we discussed our plans to play a historic friendship basketball game between North Korea and the US as well as ways to develop their basketball team."
"I held their baby Ju-ae and spoke with Ms Ri [Sol-Ju, Kim's wife] as well. He's a good dad and has a beautiful family. Kim told me, 'I'll see you in December.'"
Oh, and Rodman plans to see Kim again in December because The Worm is set to organize a basketball game between Americans and Koreans.
"Kim is a great guy, he loves basketball, and he's interested in building trust and understanding through sport and cultural exchanges," Rodman said. "I know in time Americans will see I'm just trying to help us all get along and see eye to eye through basketball and with my friendship with Kim I know this will happen." Further details on the basketball match are expected on Monday. [The Guardian]
