It's no secret that Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-un are friends. In fact, they've got such a good relationship that, last year, the former NBA star visited North Korea and sang "Happy Birthday" to the country's Supreme Leader. But according to a new documentary called Dennis Rodman's Big Bang in Pyongyang (doesn't that title make it sound like, um, a much different kind of movie?), The Worm has received death threats due to his relationship with Kim Jong-un.

"No one's ever done this, you know? You've got the Jay Zs, the Beyoncés, and stuff like that. None of these people in the world that's way more famous than I am are doing what I'm doing," Rodman says in the documentary, before breaking down in tears. "I want people to see, you know, I get death threats. I get death threats a lot. Why you doing this, Dennis? Why you doing that? I'm not doing shit. I'm not doing a goddamn thing. All I'm doing is trying to keep everything together…What am I doing?"

You can watch a clip from the doc in the video above.
