Dennis Rodman says he saw the uncle of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un who was supposedly executed before Rodman’s arrival. He also saw Kim Jong-un’s ex-girlfriend who was also thought to have been executed.
When asked about Kim Jong-un’s reported execution of his family members, Rodman said the uncle who had often been seen in military garb behind Kim Jong-un was not dead and “standing right behind me.”
Here are Rodman’s remarks to DuJour magazine:
DR: You could say anything here about North Korea and people would believe it. The last time I went there, when they said they killed his girlfriend, they killed his uncle, they just fed him to the dogs… They were standing right behind me.
DJ: You’re saying that the uncle that the North Korean government itself confirms was executed is actually alive?
DR: He was standing right there.
