Basketball star Dennis Rodman is planning to head back to North Korea and “just hang and have some fun” with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, who he says “just wants to be loved.”
The former NBA star, appearing at a charity gala Saturday night in Miami Beach, told Jose Lambiet's Gossip Extra
that he plans to head back to North Korea on Aug. 1 to visit with Kim, who is threatening to unleash a nuclear attack.
“We have no plans, really, as far as what we're going to do over there,” Rodman said. He visited North Korea last month and met with the country's leader several times. Rodman claims that the Soviet Union's rhetoric during the Cold War was far worse in the 1950s and 1960s.

Rodman said he hopes to meet with President Barack Obama before he leaves again for North Korea, but acknowledges that such a meeting probably won't happen.
The fundraising event, held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, was organized by criminal defense attorney Roy Black and his wife, Lea, who stars on “The Real Housewives of Miami.”
Black introduced Rodman as “the U.S. Ambassador to North Korea,” and joiked that “the good thing about Dennis being here is that it makes us pretty sure this city will not be bombed by North Korea tonight.”
