Dennis Rodman is rebounding after celebrating more than 30 days sober, and told Page Six he decided to kick the booze.
“I want to see my kids grow up. I just needed to stop partying, take a step back and get my life back in order. ”
Rodman, 56, went into rehab in January after he was busted for DUI. He underwent treatment in New Jersey and said, “A lot of people connect me with partying and being a bad boy, but now I am getting up in age, so I felt it was time step back and to re-evaluate my life . . . like seeing my son, D.J., who is a high-school basketball star, play for the NBA.” His daughter Trinity will soon join the US Women’s World Cup soccer team.
Rodman said he’s attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and “taking it a day at a time.”
He admits sobriety may hurt his bookings “because everyone wants the crazy, entertaining Dennis, not the Dennis drinking cranberry juice.”
He has a production deal for a reality show with his kids and ex-wife Michelle about Rodman being a “sober hands-on dad.” It is being produced with Bunim/Murray.
Rodman is also waiting for government approval to go see Kim Jong-un. Rodman added, “You couldn’t help asking about that one, huh? We were with him last June, and we are waiting on permission from the government to go back. I hope we can have another discussion with Kim on how to move forward.”
