He was drunk! Dennis Rodman admits he had too much to drink during his TV freakout on CNN.
He also issued an apology for suggesting that American missionary Kenneth Bae, who has been held in North Korea since 2012, may deserve the 15 year sentence he's serving.
In a statement Rodman said: "I had been drinking...It's not an excuse, but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwehlmed."
He said his dreams of basketball diplomacy was "quickly falling apart ... I also want to apologize to Chris Cuomo."
Rodman sang happy birthday to dictator Kim Jong Un before a packed stadium Wednesday. It's Rodman's forth trip in under a year to North Korea.
