Dennis Rodman Says Michael Jordan Turned Down Kim Jong-un Invite

… By Michael Jordan

EXCLUSIVE

Before Kim Jong-un met Dennis Rodman in North Korea — he reached out to Michael Jordan, but got shot down by His Airness … this according to Rodman himself. 

The Worm appeared on “TMZ Live” and said the first time he met Kim Jong-un was in 2013 on a basketball trip with the Harlem Globetrotters. 

During the trip, Rodman says Kim Jong-un’s people invited him to meet with the North Korean leader and they hit it off … and became friends.  

But Rodman says he wasn’t Kim’s first choice — revealing, “Basically, he asked Michael Jordan first and Michael Jordan said, ‘No.’ So then he asked about me and I said, ‘Yes.’ That’s how it all started.”

Turns out, Kim Jong-un is a huge fan of the legendary Chicago Bulls teams of the ’90s!

So, why did Rodman accept the invite? His explanation is actually pretty interesting.
