After 3 failed marriages, ex-NBA star, Dennis Rodman picks N’Korea’s president’s sister as his new wife



After 3 failed marriages, ex-NBA star, Dennis Rodman picks N'Korea's president's sister as his new wife
Former maverick and controversial NBA star Dennis Rodman is said to be preparing to tie the nuptial knots with the sister of hard stance Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Reports say the 55-year-old ex basketballer announced his intention to marry the dictator’s 29-year-old sister, Kim Yo Jong at a press conference staged in Pyongyang.
Rodman informed at the press conference that Ms Yo-jong, who was recently elected as a member of the powerful Central Committee in North Korea, is the one for him after three failed marriages and that he had recently obtained the President’s approval to marry his beloved sister.
“I’m extremely happy to announce that after three unsuccessful weddings, I have finally found the love of my life,” Mr. Rodman told reporters. “I have found a new family here with Yo and Jong, and I’m finally happy like I have never been before. For me, Yo-Jong is like an angel and North Korea is like Heaven! I have finally found what I had been looking for.”
Rodman’s first trip to North Korea took place in February 2013. Since then, he says he’s visited more than 30 times, and he calls Kim a “friend for life”.
The complicity between the two men was clearly palpable, and Rodman even claimed he “couldn’t have dreamed of a better brother-in-law.”
