Dennis Rodman said he hopes reports of North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un’s, health being in “grave danger,” is “just a rumor.”

The 58-year-old retired professional basketball player told TMZ in a piece published Wednesday that he’s praying for “a speedy recovery” for his pal following several reports that the NK leader is in “grave danger” after he underwent a cardiovascular procedure.

“There is still so much work we have to do between both the USA and DPRK,” he added. “If he is not feeling well, I am praying for his speedy recovery, so that both my friends [President Trump & Marshal Kim] can continue towards a peaceful success.”

As previously reported, the NBA star traveled to Singapore ahead of the Trump-Kim summit in 2018 to be on hand and offer “whatever support is needed to my friends.”

“Thanks to my loyal sponsors from @potcoin and my team at @Prince_Mrketing, I will be flying to Singapore for the historical Summit. I’ll give whatever support is needed to my friends, @realDonaldTrump and Marshall Kim Jong Un,” Rodman tweeted at the time.

In 2017, the basketball legend traveled to North Korea and met with the leader as a private citizen, telling reporters after the trip that he was “just trying to open the door.”
