DENNIS Rodman has given a tearful interview apologising for his trips to North Korea and vowing never to return to the country.

"I don't want people to look at me as the devil or evil person," he told ESPN. "If I put anyone in harm's way, I apologise.

"If you don't want me to go back there ever again, I won't go back," he said, talking to the camera.

Rodman struck up a friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un last year when he first travelled to North Korea.

The 52-year-old basketball star visited North Korea in January for an exhibition game and sung Happy Birthday to Kim.


He attracted criticism when he did an interview with CNN saying that Kenneth Bae, a seriously ill American missionary imprisoned in North Korea, was responsible for his own imprisonment.

Following his return from North Korea, Rodman checked himself into rehab for an alcohol issue while denying he was an alcoholic.

"I don't need to drink,' he said. 'I don't need to do anything. I went to rehab just to sort things out. That's it."

I'm not an alcoholic," he said. "An alcoholic drinks seven days a week. I don't drink seven days a week. When I drink, I don't hurt nobody, I don't have no DUIs, nothing like that."

Rodman said he wished that people understood that he was just trying to broker peace with North Korea.

"I wish (the critics) understood the whole purpose of why I went to North Korea," he said. "You know, I don't want to be a hero. I just wanted to be, just do happy things and do great things in life."

"The people over there are not bad people," Rodman said.
