Dennis Rodman Got Kicked Out Of His Favorite New York Hotel
Anyone remember hearing reports last month about NBA star-turned-nightmare-hotel-guest Dennis Rodman visiting North Korea? Well, he's back. And, once again, he's causing trouble in hotels.
The NY Post reports that Rodman was hanging out at The Time Hotel in Manhattan, waving around a signed copy of Kim Jong Un's manifesto, "telling anyone who would listen what a great guy the North Korean dictator is."
Classic. (Rodman also went on a similar rant during a recent appearance on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos.)
Apparently the situation got so bad that Rodman was forced to leave the hotel, seeking refuge at a downtown Marriott. Which must have sucked because, according to Rodman's rep, The Time "is Dennis' favorite hotel." The relocation was attributed to security reasons and the fact that he needed to be "closer to the airport." Though hopefully, he won't be taking any more flights to North Korea for a while…
Witnesses explained to the Post:
"Dennis was making a total jerk of himself. He wouldn’t leave, and he wouldn’t let anyone talk to him about shutting up, or what an oppressive country North Korea is. Eventually he had to leave the bar because the bartender was starting to get [bleep]ed-off."
Dennis Rodman getting drunk and disorderly at the hotel bar? We think we've heard this one before…
Rates at The Time start at around $339/night, though, if you happen to spot Dennis Rodman, either negotiate it down, or get the heck outta there.
