Nutty ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman has a new best friend — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Rodman, the heavily pierced and tattooed unofficial American ambassador, and the dictator with nuke missiles hung out courtside at a basketball game Thursday in the North Korean capital Pyongyang.

“You have a friend for life,” Rodman, 51, nicknamed “The Worm,” told Kim, according to reports.

Kim Jong Un visits Kumsusan Memorial Palace in Pyongyang, North Korea, to pay respects to his late father.

The odd couple, both dressed in black suits, sat side-by-side with Rodman also wearing a USA Basketball hat and drinking a Coca-Cola.

The pair yukked it up, laughing and cheering on the exhibition play of teams made up of North Korean and American players — including members of the famed Harlem Globetrotters.

The game in the Communist country ended in a freewheeling 110-110 tie.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman wears shades and a scarf while posing with his party upon arriving at the airport in Pyongyang, North Korea, on Tuesday.

Afterwards, Kim invited Rodman and his crew back to his palace for a lavish dinner and party.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Rodman, a standout rebounder in his NBA playing days, talked about nuclear weapons with Kim, who seems to be hell-bent on developing them.

Just two weeks ago, North Korea conducted another underground nuke test — raising tensions with Washington.

Rodman — an NBA Hall-of-Famer who once wore a wedding dress to a book-signing event, stripped for PETA and was briefly married to former “Baywatch” beauty Carmen Electra — is in North Korea with a VICE television crew filmimg an HBO documentary.

    You can bet that Little Kim got some big laughs out of that.

    I wonder if Rodman’s visit has “the Administration’s” panties in a twist?

    . . .

    That’s just Rodman being Rodmen.

    It’s amazing how Kim Jong Un allows Rodman and his friends to come to North Korea and to allow them to wear hats that say, “USA” on them when they have videos and propaganda and citizens everywhere saying “Off with their heads” to America and even missiles pointing at us. Yet for some reason, they allow Rodman and the Globetrotters to play a basketball game at his palace.
